Colin Powell: Trump should ‘just do what Nixon did and step down’


Joining TODAY live, former secretary of state Gen. Colin Powell says he wishes President Trump would “just do what Nixon did and step down. Somebody ought to go up there and tell him, ‘it’s over. The plane’s waiting for you; you’re out.’” He adds, “he should be totally ashamed of himself and he should take that shame and turn it into a resignation as quickly as possible.” He dismisses worries about Trump’s access to the nuclear codes, saying that military leaders would never allow him to use them.
