Ex-Trump DHS Official: Biden’s Gettysburg Speech ‘Perfectly Encapsulates What We Need’

Elizabeth Neumann, who until April was a high-ranking official in the Department of Homeland Security, on Tuesday offered a ringing endorsement of Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s address in Gettysburg.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” Neumann praised the former vice president for his speech at the Civil War battlefield in which he declared: “We can end this era of division. We can end the hate and the fear. We can be what we are at our best: The United States of America.” 

“I’ve been working on commercials and op-eds and different ways to communicate to people why I came to this conclusion,” Neumann explained Tuesday to “Deadline” host Nicolle Wallace of her decision to back Biden.

“Now I can just send them this speech,” she added. “It perfectly encapsulates what we need right now in this country.”

“Wow,” responded Wallace.
