Schiff Criticizes Trump for Painting Himself As the Victim

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, on Thursday said he was “astounded” by the way President Trump constantly characterizes himself as the victim.

“Anything that the president finds that detracts from him or is critical of him or is a negative news story about him is all fake, it’s all a witch hunt, everybody’s out to get him,” Schiff said during an appearance on CNN.

“I’m continually astounded by the degree to which the president of the United States paints himself as a victim of everything.”

Schiff added that the President sees the U.S. as a victim of the rest of the world, rather than the strongest power in the world.”

The California Representative added that there is “obciously” good reason to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“I think the president can’t come to grips with the Russian intervention in our affairs because he views it as a threat to his legitimacy,” he said.

“But he has a job to do as president of the United States.”
