Says he may sound different, but he puts America first
Condoleezza Rice praised U.S. President Donald Trump, even as most black people in America distrust or hate him.
In an interview with the "Squawk Box," Rice said Trump puts American values first and he seeks to act in the best interests of the united States.
"I believe every president of the United States stands for our values," said Rice, who served as Secretary of State under former President George W. Bush.
She added: "You heard President Trump say, for instance, after the Syrian chemical attack, we can't let that stand. What he was saying was the president of the United States can't let that stand."
Rice acknowledged that Trump is not establishment and that makes him a target of the aggressive left in Washington D.C., who see him as an outsider.
"While the language may be different, I think you're going to see, that Americans' interests in values are always linked," Rice said. "It's early days in this administration. Let's remember that."
