Former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chief of Staff Miles Taylor claimed in a podcast earlier this week that President Donald Trump told administration officials he wanted to "maim" and "shoot" migrants at the southern border.

Taylor, who served as chief of staff to former DHS Kirstjen Nielsen before departing the agency with her in April 2019, made the remarks Monday on an episode of "The New Abnormal" podcast from The Daily Beast.

Taylor said he could not get through a meeting without Trump "doing 20 tangents, becoming irascible, turning red in the face, demanding a diet Coke, spewing spit."
