President Donald Trump is projecting "chaos" and inciting "opposition" and "passion" unlike anything we have ever seen, Hillary Clinton's former campaign communications director said Sunday.
"We're in the promise-keeping business, you heard him say," Jen Palmieri told ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos of Trump's combative start to his presidency. "They're doing it badly.
"It's bad policy, too. But they're igniting an opposition and passion in the opposition that literally we have never seen in this country."
President Trump is "keeping the base content" with shock and awe – and "chaos," she said during a panel discussion.
"There's a lot of process and style problems," Palmieri critiqued. "I think we should note he campaigned as a demagogue, and he's presenting as a demagogue. If you were setting out to have that be what your presidency was about, he's taken all the steps to do that.
"At a substantive level, we should be concerned. In terms of how they're operating the White House, they had this chaos theory. This is just chaos. . . . What they have done here is just chaos.
"They're doing what their base wanted."
