Trump on Fox News - Yovanovitch 'didn't want to hang my picture in the embassy'

In a phone call to Fox and Friends on Friday morning, Trump clarified his removal of Yovanovitch. "This ambassador, who everybody says was so wonderful," Trump said, "she wouldn't hang my picture in the embassy. "She's in charge of the embassy, it took, like, a year and a half, two years."

Trump continued: "She said bad things about me, she wouldn't defend me, and I have the right to change the ambassador. The standard is you put the president of the United States' picture in the embassy," he continued. "This was not an angel, this woman, OK?"
