DEBATE COUNTDOWN: Those Who Know Trump Best Say He’s Unfit for the Presidency

Former Aides Label Trump “Wannabe Dictator,” “Threat to Democracy”

Former Top Trump White House Aide: “This man is unfit to be president”

Today, ahead of tonight’s debate, Biden-Harris 2024 released “Unfit,” a video that lifts up former aides of Donald Trump who have seen up close his lack of fitness for the highest office in the land. “Unfit” highlights the views of Trump’s vice president, top military advisor, top communications advisor, national security advisor, and secretary of defense, who see Trump as a “wannabe dictator” “unfit to be in office.

Here are just some of the most striking reasons why Trump cannot return to office, according to some of those who know him best:

  • Trump’s Secretary of Defense Mark Esper expressed serious concerns that Trump would use the military and attempt a coup before the election in 2020, and said Trump suggested using the U.S. military to shoot protesters.
  • Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence: “President Trump also demanded that I choose between him and the Constitution. … I believe that anyone who puts themselves over the Constitution should never be president of the United States … again.
  • Trump’s Communications Director Alyssa Farah Griffin called Trump one of, if not the, most divisive presidents and believes “he is wholly unfit to be in office.”
  • Trump suggested his top military chief Mark Milley be executed after Milley pushed back against Trump.
  • Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton: “If his first four years were bad, a second four will be worse. … Trump really cares only about retribution for himself, and it will consume much of a second term. … It is a close contest between Putin and Xi Jinping who would be happiest to see Trump back in office.”

“Unfit” comes ahead of tonight’s Atlanta debate, which will put on full display the contrast between President Biden’s competent leadership and convicted felon Donald Trump’s lack of fitness for office. Alongside “Unfit,” Team Biden-Harris announced seven-figure investments into paid media and visibility across Atlanta and battlegrounds to help bring that message to voters.

The following is a statement from Biden-Harris 2024 Communications Director Michael Tyler:

“If the people who know Donald Trump best can’t trust him, neither can the American people. He encouraged a violent mob to overturn a free and fair election. He embraces dictators and wants to be one himself. He promises more violence if he loses again. Americans suffered enough chaos, division, and violence during Trump’s term in office; we cannot afford another Trump presidency. We can stop him, and we will by reelecting Joe Biden.”

WATCH

Mark Milley: Dictator. Tyrant.

Alyssa Farah Griffin: Dangerous.

Mark Esper: Threat to democracy.

Mike Pence: I cannot in good conscience endorse Donald Trump.

Mark Milley: We don’t take an oath to a king, or a queen, or to a tyrant, or a dictator. And we don’t take an oath to a wannabe dictator.

Alyssa Farah Griffin: We worked with him. We knew him. This man is unfit to be president. A second term would be more dangerous than a first.

John Bolton: Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, they’re fully prepared to take advantage of him.

Mark Esper: Yes, I did regard him as a threat to democracy and all those things that make America great.

Donald Trump: Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath.
