Following the Capitol Hill riots and a slew of Trump administration officials resigning, Ric Grenell, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany, told FOX Business he's "very proud" of President Trump's achievements, especially his "America First" agenda.
"I don't think you're ever going to put that issue back in a bottle. I think it's been unleashed," the former Acting Director of National Intelligence told host Neil Cavuto on "Cavuto: Coast to Coast," adding "I don't think that that's ever going to go away."
"The American people now are so much more cognizant of what matters when it comes to foreign policy and national security. They're much more engaged. They see the benefit and they want to put America first," he said.
Reacting to the fallout from the Capitol Hill protests, Grenell said the American people take it "with a grain of salt" and predicts, if the election were held today, that Trump would get more than 75 million votes because they've seen how biased the media was against the president.
Grenell said every Republican in leadership has condemned the chaos on Wednesday, contrasting it with violence in Democrat-led cities over the summer that wasn't condemned by the left.
"I would go as far to say Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have not been helpful in their comments, yet they don't get the scrutiny because the media system and political system in D.C. is very different from the rest of the country," Grenell concluded.
While Grenell has stood by and defended Trump as a "nonpolitician" liked by the rest of America, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the president's "actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history."
