The president admits the combativeness of his White House ‘could be my fault.’
President Donald Trump says he’s surprised by the “meanness” that surrounds him.
But in a rare moment of self-awareness, the man who has attacked and belittled rivals ― often bestowing insulting nicknames such as “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer― admits the contentious nature of his White House could be his fault.
In an interview with Time magazine, Trump was asked if his White House is too combative. He said:
“I think it is. It could be my fault. I don’t want to necessarily blame but there’s a great meanness out there that I’m surprised at. I mean I’m surprised.”
