Colin Powell: Trump is about 'me the president' not 'we the people.'Former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Sunday said he doesn't believe President Trump can be a moral leader, adding that it has become "me the president" for Trump instead of "we the people."

"My favorite three words in our Constitution is the first three words – 'We the People.'  'We the People.'  But recently it’s become 'me the president,' as opposed to 'We the People.'  And you see things that should not be happening," the former U.S. Army general said on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS."

Powell pointed to Trump's attacks on the press, which the president has dubbed "the enemy of the people," as well as his tendency to insult his opponents and different groups of people.

"How can a president of the United States get up and say that the media is the enemy of Americans?  Hasn’t he read the First Amendment?  You’re not supposed to like everything the press says or what anyone says in the First Amendment," Powell said.
