Former White House communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin may have once worked for former President Donald Trump, but she has since argued that he should never get near the presidency again. Still, she says that in her new role one ABC’s midday talk show “The View,” she is prepared to “represent” the views of Trump’s voters.
Griffin joined “Good Morning America” on Monday to discuss what was coming in the panel show’s 26th season — which kicks off on Tuesday after a late-summer hiatus — and she noted two seats would be occupied by women who at least identified as Republicans — herself and longtime fill-in host Ana Navarro.
“I’m a millennial and I worked in the Trump administration. I’ve also since criticized the former president,” Griffin explained.’
“But I still want to be a voice for the 74 million Americans who voted for him, and kind of tell them, from my experience, here’s why I won’t support him again, but here’s what a future Republican Party can and should look like. So that’s really what I’m hoping to meet the audience with,” she added.
Griffin, went on to take several potshots at the former president, saying that she certainly understood discussions could get heated among women who did not always see eye to eye. “Listen, by the way, I survived the Trump West Wing. I think I can survive ‘The View.’ We’ll see. I’ll be back to let you know,” she added.
Griffin is no stranger to opposing Trump. She stated that she does not want to see him “be president again.”
She resigned from the Trump administration on January 6, 2021.
