Trump faced with photo evidence after he swears he’s never heard of former DHS official Miles Taylor

President Donald Trump’s former Homeland Security chief of staff, Miles Taylor, attacked the president in an endorsement video of Vice President Joe Biden on Monday. But when Trump was faced with an attack, he said he never met or heard of Taylor.

“We would go in to try to talk to him about a pressing national security issue — a cyberattack, a terrorism threat — he wasn’t interested in those things,” Taylor says in the Republicans Against Trump video. “To him, they weren’t priorities.”

But Trump said he’d never heard of Taylor.

“Many thousands of people work for our government,” the president tweeted Tuesday. “With that said, a former DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE named Miles Taylor, who I do not know (never heard of him), said he left & is on the open arms Fake News circuit. Said to be a real ‘stiff’. They will take anyone against us!”

It’s an ironic claim because just hours later, Taylor posted photos himself with Trump in the Oval Office looking very friendly.

Taylor has also warned that more Trump veterans are prepared to come forward and speak out against the president.
