Jeh Johnson: I hope Americans will come to realize Trump presidency was a 'failed experiment' [View all]

Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said Sunday that he hopes Americans will come to realize that the Trump presidency was a "failed experiment."

Johnson, who served as Homeland Security secretary under former President Obama, told CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" that he thinks history will not remember the Trump presidency and "those who supported it kindly" even if the Senate decides not to convict Trump of inciting the Capitol riots earlier this month.

"Four years ago, we engaged in a very dangerous experiment by electing someone who was utterly unqualified for office, who had no moral or legal compass and frankly had impulses toward fascism and autocracy," Johnson said.

"My hope is that as time passes Americans will realize this was a failed experiment and we should never try it again," he continued. "Just look at the consequences of that over the last four years.


Most of us realize this but the fact is Trump never would have been president but for an archaic thing know as the electoral college.
