Trump, Inc.


It's not enough for a few days later. Trump appeared on the view wearing a dark suit and red tie the hosts ask him about his candidacy and some comments he made in a recent interview. Here's joy behar. You recently said about president obama. I'm going to quote you. He grew up and nobody knew him. Nobody knows who he is until later in his life. The whole thing is very strange.

Points out the racism. They run out of time and cut to commercial when they come back. Trump is still on the couch. Barbara walters says we very rarely do this and it may be setting a bad precedent but we love him so we've asked donald trump to stay for the second segment real fast. Could you beat obama. Suddenly he's everywhere the today show. Cnn the laura ingraham show and of course fox all right mr trump. Does it have anything to do with race.
