Former CBS news anchor Dan Rather said Thursday that President Trump’s decision to leave the Paris climate agreement resulted from Trump “lashing out in anger” after his recent foreign trip.
“It seems clear that he’s mad. He has some rage; he’s scared,” Rather said on MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.”
“He just came back from his European trip and he was angry with the leader of Germany … and the new leader of France.”
“So what you have here is a president who is lashing out in anger,” Rather continued, warning that Americans “haven’t had a president this psychologically troubled since Richard Nixon.”
“History will punish Donald Trump for this decision,” Rather said.
