Steyer: Democrats Think Americans Can’t Handle Truth About Trump

Steyer claimed Democrats and the media are saying to him “Please don’t tell the truth [about Trump] because the American people are not equipped to handle it.”

Tom Steyer, the liberal environmentalist billionaire, claimed the Democratic Party and media elites are shielding what he calls “the truth” from the American people about President Donald Trump.

While Steyer never specifically articulated what “the truth” is, he has spent millions of dollars in the past few months in an effort to impeach Trump. Democrats, most recently former Obama aide David Axelrod, have cautioned Steyer to hold his fire until Trump commits an impeachable offense. Similarly, when asked late last year about impeachment, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said impeaching Trump was not a Democrat priority at that time.

“I think that there’s a sense around the country from elected officials and what I think of as the leaders that the status quo will hold, and I’m very worried that they’re wrong,” Steyer said at the Oakland townhall alongside Amy Siskind, a former Wall Street executive who wrote a book attacking Trump.

“We are pushing as hard and as fast as we can and getting a lot of pushback from people in the Democratic Party and from the media, saying, ‘It’s inappropriate to bring up the truth,’” Steyer claimed. “That’s really what they’re saying, which is crazy. They’re saying, ‘Please don’t tell the truth because the American people are not equipped to handle it.’”

Steyer argued that Democrats in Washington, D.C. are not taking the Trump threat seriously because “they’re assuming it’s just kind of a game between Republicans and Democrats. And sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose.”

He then cited what he called “different kinds of war and all kinds of investigations about criminality” as evidence that Democrats should take seriously the threat Trump poses. Yet Steyer also stopped short of naming specific impeachable offenses.
