Ana Navarro, a CNN and ABC News contributor, called President Trump's tweet Sunday morning showing him body-slamming and punching a person meant to represent the cable news network “an incitement to violence."
The president "is going to get somebody killed in the media. Maybe that will stop him,” Navarro said on an ABC News’ "This Week" roundtable. The CNN contributor also responded to Trump homeland security adviser Tom Bossert's defense of the president's tweet during his interview on “This Week” Sunday.
“I am disappointed beyond belief by the answer that the homeland security adviser just gave," Navarro said. "What a wuss. What a wuss. You could see that he is ceding his principles. You are the homeland security adviser and you can’t stand here and say the difference between right and wrong."
Bossert touted the president’s use of social media as a way to reach people by bypassing conventional media outlets.
When asked by “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz whether the tweet represents "the kind of communication you want,” noting that it "seems like a threat," Bossert responded by saying, “I think that no one would perceive that as a threat. I hope they don’t. I do think that [Trump is] beaten up in a way on cable platforms that he has a right to respond to.”
