Trump Admits He Shouldn’t Have Hired ‘Incompetent’ Barr, Sessions, Esper

In an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Donald Trump admitted he made some “mistakes” in his presidency.

When asked what he would do differently if re-elected, Trump said his greatest mistake was “people.”

“I mean, I wouldn’t have put a guy like [former Attorney General] Bill Barr in, he was weak and pathetic,” Trump said.

He continued, “I wouldn’t have put [former Attorney General] Jeff Sessions in… There are some people that I wouldn’t have put in. You know, most people were good, but I had some people… we had [former Secretary of Defense] Mark Esper. I didn’t like him. He was incompetent, I thought. We had other people I didn’t like.”

Bartiromo asked Trump why he chose those individuals.

“I didn’t know the people,” Trump stated.

“I know the people now better than anybody has ever known the people. I know, the good ones, the bad ones, the dumb ones, the smart ones.”

Reporting from InfoWars:

“Well, you didn’t drain the swamp,” Bartiromo cut off Trump.

Defending himself, Trump said, “I did. I fired [former FBI Director James] Comey. I fired a lot of people. A lot of the people I had, I fired. I fired Comey very early. And, you know, there was a question as to whether or not you could. But I fired Comey. If I didn’t fire Comey, I don’t think I would have been able to serve out my term because that was a plot.”
