MSNBC host Joy Reid went head-to-head with the leader of the Ohio Black Republican Association over whether President Trump is an authoritarian.
Reid claimed on the network Sunday that Trump has all the "markers" of autocracy and had caused a "normalization of violence." Tracey Winbush, the head of the Republican group, hit back at the host, saying Reid did not understand true leadership.
"Everything that you said about the president's authoritarianism, the thing about autocracy, none of that means anything because you’re not understanding leadership," she said, later adding, "Journalists don’t want to cover the truth, they don’t want to cover the facts. They don't want to cover them. They never have. They have never told the truth and/or the facts about President Trump."
"That's actually not true," Reid responded to Winbush's assertion about journalists not covering facts. Near the end of the contentious segment, Reid asked the guest whether the president was "sent by God."
"All power is elevated by God," Winbush responded. "I believe Donald Trump is in office because God allowed him to be there to give America a reprieve so that they can reset and get back to normal."
