Jehmu Greene, a DNC chair candidate, said Trump was “allegedly elected” when she appeared on FOX & Friends this past Saturday morning.
Greene made the comment when Fox host Peter Hegseth asked if she agrees with Rep. John Lewis’ statement, where he said he doesn’t see Trump as a “legitimate” president.
HEGSETH: What do you make of these remarks from John Lewis? Obviously he is a Civil Rights icon, but now is claiming that Donald Trump is not legitimate. What say you?
JEHMU GREENE: He’s truth telling. I don’t think this is about just Democrats. This is Americans. Anyone with a smidgen of common sense can remember Donald Trump looking into the camera encouraging Russia to hack into our electoral process, cheerleading them on. And the idea that whatever information these members of Congress are getting out of this classified briefing had them storm out of that room makes it very clear that the decisions that the FBI made that were unprecedented to get involved in the election against HIllary Clinton, pick a winner, pick a loser when they had so much information that was so damaging. What have we been talking about since this man was allegedly elected?
HEGSETH: “Allegedly elected? You acknowledge that he achieved the necessary electoral votes and is legitimately elected president of the United States. Would you not?”
Greene’s shocking interview can be seen below:
At one point, an astounded Hegseth asked, “Would you not work with him as a legitimate president?”
The woman who wants to be the chair of the DNC responded, “The Democratic Party’s job right now is to work with the majority of the American people who have given us a mandate to build a resistance against a kleptocracy that Donald Trump is trying to put into place, and that’s our job, that’s our responsibility right now to build a an opposition party to give the American people a voice.”
