The ex-acting US attorney general has lashed out at President Donald Trump’s claims that he “inherited a mess” both “at home and abroad”.

Sally Yates was fired by Trump last month after she took the incredibly rare step of defying the White House by refusing to defend the ‘Muslim travel ban’.

Today, she took to Twitter to hit out at the president, writing: “Trump did not inherit a mess. He inherited a fortune, unfortunately we elected a mess.”

Trump had earlier launched a ferocious attack on the media while claiming his crisis-hit administration was “running like a fine-tuned machine”.
