ABC News Rick Klein: Using White House Was As Trumpian As It Gets


ABC News Political Director Rick Klein said that using the White House for his speech during the Republican National Convention was as Trumpian as he could get.

"People told the President he can't do it when it was first raised and when you tell Trump not to do it to not touch the stove he'll touch it. This broke precedent in enormous ways and may have broken laws but it was as Trumpian as it gets," say Klein while on the "Len Berman and Michael Riedel In The Morning" show.

Len asked Rick what he thought about the optics of over 2,000 people watching Trumps speech without social distancing and without masks on.

"I think the optics were intentional because Donald Trump wants people to think that we are coming to the other side (of the coronavirus)", said Klein.
