Except for Abraham Lincoln's assassination, the vicious "assault" aimed at President Donald Trump is the worst in American history on a man holding the top office.
During a Fox Business News interview with Pastor Robert Jeffress on Friday, Dobbs referred to Trump's enemies and opponents as "the corrupt forces within our government who worked against him for more than four years."
"It is the most vile, venomous assault ever conducted against a president in our country's history, short of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln," Dobbs said in a video of the interview on his Twitter account.
"This is a nation that can't heal, that cannot come together until we understand the truth and the reality of what we have witnessed over the course of the past four years of this man's presidency."
Jeffress, from the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, has been an outspoken supporter of Trump. He told Dobbs that the Democrats were attacking Trump's loyalists, not just the president.
"That's an attempt to shame people like you and me who strongly support this president into repenting our support of him," Jeffress said. "Well, I’ll guaran-dang-tee you I'm not repenting of anything. Certainly, not my support of this great president.
"I told [Trump] this week I believe he is the greatest president of my lifetime and he will go down as the most pro-life, pro-religious liberty president in American history. And nothing anyone says can change that."
Dobbs said Trump compiled an "extraordinary legacy," especially when one considers the challenges he has faced since 2016 campaign.
"He accomplished more than any president in the first year, first three years, of his term," Dobbs said. "His four years are remarkable in achievement, all the more so because of the naked, corrupt opposition of the Radical Left and the Deep State.”
