While Davis blames Republicans’ complicity for the current state of American politics, Davis also singled out President Trump, whom she believes is endangering American democracy.
“He talks like an autocrat,” Davis exclaimed. “He befriends autocrats. He supports autocrats. He believes them. He wants to be one.”
The former first daughter reflected on the evolution of issues like immigration and political rhetoric, which she says have changed drastically since her father was in office. Davis also took her critique a step further, and said she believed that President Reagan would likely agree with her assessment of today’s political climate.
“I think he would be horrified,” she said. “I think he would be heartbroken, because he loved this country a lot and he believed in this country.”
