They keep finding new ways to make what should be an easy election, as close as possible.
Trump feels bad for Roger Ailes who stepped down because of sexual harassment allegations:
Speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Trump repeated one of the defenses put forth by Ailes’ side: “Some of the women that are complaining, I know how much he’s helped them. And even recently. And when they write books that are fairly recently released, and they say wonderful things about him.”
In fact, Carlson is the only accuser who recently wrote a book. It included praise for Ailes. She was still employed by Fox News at the time, and her representatives have said it was necessary to include the positive language in the book.
“Now,” Trump told Todd, “all of a sudden, they’re saying these horrible things about him. It’s very sad. Because he’s a very good person. I’ve always found him to be just a very, very good person.”
Trump blames France and Germany for terror attacks in their countries:
Trump was asked in an interview airing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to expand on his proposal to suspend immigration from what he calls countries “compromised by terrorism” until vetting mechanisms are in place.
“I’m going to be coming out over the next few weeks with a number of the places,” said Trump according to an excerpt of the interview.
“We have problems in Germany, and we have problems in France” — both countries rocked by fatal attacks claimed by the Isis group.
“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd asked specifically if the proposal would limit immigration from France, saying: “They have been compromised by terrorism.”
“They have totally been,” Trump responded. “And you know why? It’s their own fault. Because they allowed people to come into their territory.”
The candidate has repeatedly called for “extreme vetting” to be put in place for such nations to protect the United States from the risk of attack.
Trump denied the policy amounted to backing away from his previous call for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration.
“I actually don’t think it’s a rollback. In fact, you could say it’s an expansion. I’m looking now at territory,” he said.
