Trump 2016 - What could go wrong?


Reporter: How Creepy Donald Trump ĎHit Oní Me Today

Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for the presidential nomination, met with The Washington Postís editorial board Monday to answer questions ranging from his views on NATO and the American criminal justice system to the violence that has been plaguing his rallies. We hoped that we would get to peel back some of the layers of Trump. In our meeting, when asked whether he thought there were racial disparities in how laws are enforced, Trump said he had ďno opinion.Ē As time was running out, I wanted to press him a little more on if he plans to run on and/or govern on a message of racial inclusion.

TRUMP: Well, first of all, if you look at some polls that have come out, Iím doing very well with African Americans. Iím doing, actually if you look at the polls, a lot of the polls that came out, in the, um, what do they call it? Exit polls, like from Nevada and other places, Iím doing very well with Hispanics.

ATTIAH: I think the some of the polls are saying youíre doing([in the] negatives.

TRUMP: We do, if itís illegals, in other words, if itís everybody, but people that are legally living here, Iím doing very well. In other words, people that are here, like Hispanics that are in the country, Iím doing very well. People that vote. Like people leaving voting booths and all, Iím doing very well with them. I want to be inclusive, but at the same time, people should come here legally, they should be here legally. And I think the reason Iím doing, that I will do well, especially once I get started, donít forget I havenít even focused on Hillary yet. And, and as you know, you know Iíve had polls that are against me, but Iíve had many polls that say Iíd beat Hillary, but theyíre not that, that, they donít mean anything now because itís too early. Because I havenít hit her. Iíve only hit her once, and that was eight weeks ago, but, I havenít started on Hillary yet, and when I do I think Iíll be able to make my points. I mean, you know, but, but I think that just to try and answer your question: Uh, I am the least racist person that you will ever meet. Okay. That I can tell you.

ATTIAH: But do you feel that your messages, your rhetoric, are dangerous and divisive for this country? How do you feel theyíre . . .

TRUMP: I donít think so. No, I donít think so. With the Muslim thing I think itís a serious problem. Iíve had Muslims call and tell me youíre right with the Muslim thing, I think itís a serious problem. And itís a problem that has to be addressed. I mean, thereís tremendous hatred. Even the, even the guy they caught in Paris. He was being hid out by other Muslims, and everybody is after him, and heís living right next to where he grew up. Thereís a serious, serious problem with the Muslims and itís got to be addressed. Itís temporary, and itís got to be addressed. And you know you may think of it as negative, many people think itís very positive.

As the meeting ended and we were walking out of the room, I thanked Trump for taking my question. He turned to me and said, ďI really hope I answered your question,Ē and added casually with a smile, ďBeautiful.Ē I was stunned. I didnít say thank you, and I donít think I smiled. He then walked out to meet with my Post colleagues briefly before heading to the elevator. I stayed in the conference room for a few minutes as it sunk in that the potential GOP nominee for president thought it was okay to comment on my appearance. Did he just say that?

Planning out how to question Trump in a way that was illuminating was like planning for asymmetrical warfare against an opponent who doesnít follow the same rules as you do. Who doesnít believe in rules. Who thinks that rules wonít help make America great again. In Trumpís world, commenting on a womanís appearance in a professional setting is fair game, as is predicting riots if he doesnít get the nomination, threatening the speaker of the House, vowing to ďopen upĒ libel laws to go after ďunfairĒ media, and helping to stoke the flames of violence at his rallies.
