Al D'Amato: Trump 'Has Got His Feet on the Ground'

Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show"

By    |   Tuesday, 06 Dec 2016 05:08 PM

Former Sen. Al D'Amato, R-N.Y., lashed out at the media Tuesday for being overly critical of President-elect Donald Trump, saying his decisions on jobs and federal spending so far show "he's got his feet on the ground."

D'Amato was so fed up with the New York Times' coverage of Trump he had canceled his subscription – and urged others to do the same – he told Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show."

D'Amato accused the newspaper of "doing nothing but savaging the president-elect, not giving him an opportunity, criticizing everything he does . . ."

"Cancel them," he said. "They'll get the message."

"I hear criticism from the media," he added, referring to Trump's 1,000 jobs-saving deal with Carrier in Indiana.

"Well, you know, go to hell, media," he said. "I mean, think about those 1,000 families and don't be afraid of giving someone who you oppose – and most of them did – credit for helping those families . . ."

"I'm so sick and tired of the media that wants to do nothing but cast stones at the president," he fumed.

D'Amato praised Trump's call for the cancellation of a $4 billion Air Force One plane, saying it was a sign the president-elect is doing exactly what is right for the nation.

"This is what America needs – not to build a bureaucracy," D'Amato said.

". . . I hear President-elect Donald Trump saying, 'Hey, look I want Boeing to make money, but not that much money and I say cancel it.' . . ."

"You have to show and set an example," he added, mocking efforts to make "the best of the best."

"The best of the best never stops when you're spending other people's money," he said. "So, I love it, it shows that he's got his feet on the ground."
