In a scathing opinion piece published in the Washington Post, former Missouri Senator John Danforth (R) compared President Donald Trump to the notoriously racist Alabama Governor George Wallace before calling him “the most divisive president in our history.”
Danforth, who served in the Senate for almost twenty years, criticized the president for not only harming the Republican party, but for also damaging the country.
“Trump is not the first to promote self above party,” Danforth wrote. “The fundamental reason Trump isn’t a Republican is far bigger than words or policies. He stands in opposition to the founding principle of our party — that of a united country.”
