But this time with an editorial piece for the Los Angeles Times aimed at President Trump. In the piece, Knox, quips that while she owes Trump a “Thanks” for his if anything “un-diplomatic” support during her crusade to be freed from prison in Italy, but, nothing more than just that.
“By holding personal loyalty above all else, Trump and some of his supporters create a political environment where reason and justice hold little sway,” she writes. Knox points out that while Trump supported her case abroad, he did the opposite closer to home in the case of the Central Park Five. He called for the death penalty despite flimsy evidence, and still views those men as guilty even though they were exonerated years after the fact. For reasons like that, she can’t support Trump politically.”
Trump supporters have often rallied against Amanda, citing, that she is “disloyal” and at the very least could have remained silent entirely.
