During an interview with 60 Minutes, Donald Trump told his supporters, who commit hate crimes, to knock it off. Brett Erlich, Jimmy Dore, and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“The following script is from “The 45th President,” which aired on Nov. 13, 2016. Lesley Stahl is the correspondent. Rich Bonin and Ruth Streeter, producers.
During what seemed an interminable campaign, a divided country found all kinds of ways to describe Donald Trump: visionary businessman, vulgar self-promoter, political neophyte.
But after Tuesday, for all Americans, there’s only one description that counts: president-elect.
Since the election, demonstrations against him have broken out in over a dozen cities across the country. And people on both sides are on edge.
What we discovered in Mr. Trump’s first television interview as president-elect, was that some of his signature issues at the heart of his campaign were not meant to be taken literally, but as opening bids for negotiation.
Tonight, you will also hear from his family about whether they’ll play roles in a Trump presidency.
But we begin with President-elect Trump, whom we interviewed Friday in his penthouse home in the Trump Tower.”
