On Monday, a group called Republicans Against Trump released a damning video against the president. In the ad, Miles Taylor, the former Chief of Staff to the Director of Homeland Security, endorsed Joe Biden.
In the video, Taylor also reveals some embarrasing dirt about dealing with Donald Trump during his tenure. On Tuesday, the former Trump staffer told Good Morning America that there are more former staffers who will be talking about their experience as well. And that they will be doing so before the election in November.
During the interview, Taylor told the hosts:
“The president can expect that in the coming weeks and months leading up to the election, he is going to hear from more people that served in his administration, and he’s going to hear more of them give the same testimonies I gave which is that he’s ill-equipped to hold the office that he has and that a second term would be more dangerous than a first term. You’ll hear that soon.”

While the Taylor ad is certainly embarrasing to the president, he attempted to shake off the fallout this morning. Trump tweeted, “Many thousands of people work for our government. With that said, a former DISGRUNTLED EMPLOYEE named Miles Taylor, who I do not know (never heard of him), said he left & is on the open arms Fake News circuit. Said to be a real “stiff”. They will take anyone against us!”
