(CNSNews.com) - President Donald Trump sent out a tweet on Wednesday saying that “Never Trumper Republicans” are “human scum” and then followed it up with another tweet calling his former acting ambassador to the Ukraine, William Taylor, a “never Trumper.”
“The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous to our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats,” Trump said in the first tweet.
“Watch for them,” he said, “they are human scum!”
In a second tweet, he said: “Never Trumper Republican John Bellinger, represents Never Trumper Diplomat Bill Taylor (who I don’t know), in testimony before Congress! Do Nothing Democrats allow Republicans Zero Representation, Zero due process, and Zero Transparency…”
In a third tweet, he said: “…Does anybody think this is fair? Even though there was no quid pro quo, I’m sure they would like to try. Worse than the Dems!”
“It would be really great,” Trump wrote in a third tweet, “if the people within the Trump Administration, all well-meaning and good (I hope!), could stop hiring Never Trumpers, who are worse than the Do Nothing Democrats. Nothing good will ever come from them!”
William B. “Bill” Taylor served as acting ambassador (charge d'affares) to the Ukraine for President Trump. He is a graduate of West Point and a Vietnam War veteran, who earned a master’s degree at Harvard. Taylor was appointed ambassador to the Ukraine by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the Senate in 2006 and served in that position until 2009.
Taylor became charge d'affaires at the U.S. embassy in the Ukraine in June of this year.
Earlier this week, he testified behind close doors to the House Democrats’ inquiry on the possible impeachment of President Trump. Various news organizations published the written testimony he provided to the House inquiry.
John Bellinger served as a lawyer for the State Department in President George W. Bush’s second term.
