Former President Donald Trump called on “The View” to fire co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin for “misrepresentation” or “fraud” in a Truth Social post Sunday.
Trump accused Griffin of vocally bashing him and his administration, where she previously worked as the White House director of strategic communications, to secure her current job on the CNN talk show. The former president posted screenshots of a Twitter thread Griffin posted when she resigned on Dec. 3, 2020. In the thread, she praised the administration’s efforts to cut taxes, strengthen U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and develop and distribute the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Alyssa Farah totally misrepresented her true feelings about me and the Trump Administration in order to get her job at ratings disaster CNN, and a seat with the low IQ people at The View,” Trump posted. “Look at what she said about me, and that doesn’t include the beautiful letter she sent and other statements she made. They should fire her for misrepresentation or fraud.”
“Release the letter, Alyssa!” Trump added, alluding to Griffin’s letter of resignation.
Since leaving the Trump administration, Griffin has since been highly critical of the former president. In the thread she posted after resigning, Griffin wrote that it was “the honor of a lifetime to serve in the Trump administration.” (RELATED: Ex-Trump Staffer Alyssa Farah Griffin Call Trump A ‘Semi-Fascist’ On ‘The View’)
“I’m honored to have worked with the entire team on Operation Warp speed [sic] who helped usher in a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine in record time that will save countless thousands of lives,” she tweeted. “I’m forever grateful to have had the opportunity to serve my country.”
Griffin, who joined “The View” as a permanent co-host in September, has repeatedly condemned Trump’s role in instigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and said she would not back him in 2024.
