CNN then cut in footage of Trump saying: “It’s a witch hunt. That’s all it is. A witch hunt, as I call it. Russian witch hunt. This is a witch hunt like nobody has ever seen before.”
David Salisbury, the author of “Witchcraft Activism,” called Trump’s use of the term “really disgraceful,” adding that “thousands of people were executed on suspicion of witch hunt.”
