Victor Davis Hanson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute, told Newsmax on Tuesday that Democrats have never stopped to think about the damage they are doing to the country’s image with the political prosecutions of former President Donald Trump and his allies.
“Their assumption was they thought nobody will ever do what we did, and nobody abroad will ever think that they were wrong,” Hanson told “Rob Schmitt Tonight.” “And that’s a lot of hubris and arrogance, given their record.”
Hanson said since Trump came on the political scene, Democrats have taken a “whatever means necessary” approach to nullify and neuter him because they regard him “based on no real evidence” of being an existential threat to the country.
“Our whole establishment with letters after their name and titles before their name have been pretty much proven wrong and discredited,” Hanson said. “It really has not only destroyed the unity in the United States, it has really hurt us abroad.
“People no longer want to hear a lecture from the United States on any particular human rights issue or jurisprudence, and it’s going to take a long time to heal it.”
