NBC News host Andrea Mitchell appeared to knock President Trump's foreign policy on Thursday when she described the United States as undergoing a record low level of respect among Europeans.
“I was here when Ronald Reagan was here in 1984," Mitchell said during an interview in Normandy, France with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
"For all the disagreements over how to handle missile deployments, there were a lot of tensions then. We didn’t have the divisions with Europe that we have now. America is less respected in Europe than at any time in post-war history,” she said.
Her comments came on the 75th anniversary of D-Day when Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy as part of a broader effort to challenge the Nazis' stronghold in Northern Europe.
It seems strange that Mitchell would use such a solemn occasion to attempt to smear the President and, by extension, the United States by making such a baseless and mean spirited claim. Then again, coming from a woman like Mitchell, should we really be surprised?
