Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner paused her Monday interview with former President Donald Trump to announce the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
“I want to get to this because it just happened now,” Faulkner said. “I’d like to confirm with our producers. Mr. President, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, has resigned.”
And former President Trump said, “I’m not surprised. Good. That’s a big victory for our country.”
Faulkner, who was listening to producers through an earpiece, said, “Hold on. Let me stop. Let me stop. Let me listen to my team one more time. Forgive me. Forgive me. That has not happened. And I apologize.”
Trump said this while laughing, “Oh, OK. Cross off that victory.”
Faulkner said, “You called for that, though. And you were just talking about him, just to clarify, as somebody who is not competent to handle what’s going on. So let me clean up on aisle seven with my error. He has not resigned. Let me move to what you were calling for and others too, for him to move out of the way and get somebody who can do the job. Your thoughts?”
Former President replied, “Well, I think that will eventually happen. He is way over his head.”
