Cassidy Hutchinson, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Sarah Matthews had fears about Trump’s second presidency
Donald Trump on Sunday turned his attention to former White House staffers who expressed concerns about his possible second term during an interview on ABC this week.
Cassidy Hutchinson, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Sarah Matthews shared their fears about the dangers they believe a second Trump presidency could pose to American democracy.
Trump, in response, took to Truth Social, his social media platform, and shared screenshots of old tweets and excerpts in which Griffin and Matthews had previously defended or praised him.
While Trump attempts to present these posts as revealing contradictions, it is worth noting that many of them predate the events of January 6 and Trump’s allegations of election theft.
Griffin, the former White House communications director who issued a dire warning about the potential consequences of a second Trump term, emphasized that Trump had gone to “historic and unconstitutional lengths” to secure power.
Matthews, who served as White House deputy press secretary and Trump campaign spokesperson, echoed concerns about Trump’s persistent allegations of election fraud and highlighted his increasingly erratic behavior.
Hutchinson, an aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, emphasized the need to focus on preventing Trump’s reelection, expressing determination despite facing threats after his testimony before the committee on Jan. 6.
The women collectively underscored their commitment to preventing Trump from returning to the presidency, and Matthews expressed her willingness to prioritize democracy over partisan lines in the upcoming election.
Addressing Trump’s claim to act like a “dictator” in a second term, Hutchinson characterized it as a sign of his weakness and weakness. The interview and subsequent social media engagement highlight ongoing tensions between Trump and former staffers who have become vocal critics.
