ABC World News Tonight Just Took on Trump’s Stunning Tweet about Due Process - and His Fans Are Furious

ABC World News Tonight host Tom Llamas on Saturday night confronted President Donald Trump’s “stunning” statement about due process rights.


Trump on Saturday morning complained that people’s lives were being “destroyed” over “mere” allegations after two former White House staffers, Rob Porter and David Sorensen, resigned over claims they beat their ex-wives.

“Both accused of domestic abuse, now the scandal rippling through the Oval Office with chief of staff John Kelly indicating his willingness to resign,” Llamas explained.

But that was too much for some supporters of President Donald Trump, who took to Twitter to express their discontent with the segment.
