A CNN White House correspondent abruptly left the network after publicly labeling President Trump “a dishonest demagogue.”
On Friday, John Harwood, who has been a critic of President Trump, announced on his Twitter account that he would be leaving CNN.
“Personal news: Today’s my last day at CNN. Proud of the work,” Harwood wrote.
“Thanks to my colleagues. I’ve been lucky to serve the best in American media – St. Petersburg Times, WSJ, NYT, the NBC family, CNN. Look forward to figuring out what’s next,” he added.
Harwood’s announcement came less than two hours after he said on his show that Biden’s speech attacking Trump and his supporters was “true.”
“The core point [Biden] made in that political speech about a threat to democracy is true,” Harwood said on CNN. “Now that is something that is not easy for us as journalists to say.”
“We’re brought up to believe there’s two different political parties with different points of view, and we don’t take sides in honest disagreements between them. But that’s not what we are talking about. These are honest disagreements. The Republican party right now is led by a dishonest demagogue,” he added.
