Former White House Press Secretary Psaki says Trump has an ‘evil charisma’

On Sunday, former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that former President Trump has an “evil charisma” and urged people not to “underestimate” him.

“Democrats and sane Republicans underestimate Trump at their own peril because in order for Trump not to win the nomination, there has to be a better alternative. That’s how primaries work, right?” Psaki said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

She continued, “So, the question is, who’s the alternative? Trump has some evil charisma that helps him win the nomination. The nomination process is long. What is going to happen here? And my view is people should not underestimate him.”

Psaki then spoke on Trump’s possible Republican challengers, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has climbed as a Republican favorite in recent polls.

Psaki said DeSantis was “either the savior, or he’s currently at his peak” and dismissed former Vice President Mike Pence’s chances, saying he “didn’t exactly light the world on fire politically before he was selected by Donald Trump to be his running mate.”

While Trump announced his presidential candidacy on Nov. 15, DeSantis has not yet declared his intentions to run for president.
