Donald Trump said he sent Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman “to a much different location,” referring to last week’s removal of the National Security Council official who delivered damning testimony against the president in House impeachment hearings.

Vindman “did a lot of bad things, so we sent him on his way,” Trump said Tuesday in the Oval Office when asked about Vindman.
