Transcript for Donald Trump Speaks Out on the KKK, Super Tuesday
Right to Mr. Donald Trump. He joins us by phone and, Mr. Trump, it looks like you're poised for some big wins here on super Tuesday. But that CNN interview continuing to make waves. You've seen that tweet from Mitt Romney. He called your response disqualifying and disgusting and says your coddling of repugnant bigotry is not in the character of America. Your response. First of all, Mitt Romney is a failed candidate, should have won the race and he failed miserably. He was a terrible candidate for the republicans. Secondly, David duke was disavowed. I disavowed him on Friday. I disavowed right after that because I thought if there was any question and you take a look at Twitter, almost immediately after on Twitter and Facebook, they were disavowed again. I disavowed him every time I speak to somebody virtually and they just keep it going. They keep it going and they said, oh, we never looked at your Twitter account. We never looked at Facebook. I said take a look at Facebook. It was totally disavowed. Are you prepared right now to make a clear and unequivocal statement renouncing the support of all white supremacists. I of course, I am. There's nobody that's done so much for equality as I can. In palm beach Florida, I built a club, totally open to everybody that frankly set a new standard in clubs and a new standard in palm beach and I've gotten great credit for it. That is totally open to everybody. So, of course, I am. How worried are you may split the party as you're doing better and better in the primaries, more republican voices say they won't support you and # nevertrump right now prominent republicans like J.C. Watts, Mel Martinez, the senator Ben sass. Are you worried you may make it harder to defeat the democrats in November. No, I think it's just the opposite. I've had tremendous calls from tremendous establishment people and nonestablishment people and the party is going to get bigger. If you look at any one of the primaries that I won, whether you go to New Hampshire or south Carolina or Nevada, you take a look. Look at how many people have come out. We're just absolutely the Numbers that double and triple in some cases what they had four years ago, we're getting democrats coming in. We're getting independents coming in. We're getting a lot of people coming in and I will tell you as you know, I know the democrats very well also. They are very worried about it. We have tremendous Numbers of people coming in and the republican party is growing larger and if it didn't it has no chance. It'll be like Mitt Romney four years ago, it has no chance of winning. We're getting people into the party that never had before. Let me interrupt you. That brand-new CNN poll shows Hillary Clinton defeating you relatively handily by eight points but losing to Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Well, they're not going to get the nomination. I haven't even focused on Hillary Clinton yet and I can tell you the one person that Hillary Clinton doesn't want to run against is me and I have that on good knowledge. We have not focused -- I had one little skirmish with Hillary three weeks ago and you saw what happened with that. I will defeat Hillary and we're going to take a lot of democrats and a lot of independents away and we're going to possibly win places like Michigan, New York, states that are not even in consideration and by the way, these aren't things that have been taken advantage of in the poll. I will beat Hillary Clinton much more easily than anybody else. "The New York times" had a look inside the democrats' playbook this morning. It says the plan they're going to run against you has three major fronts. Portray you as a heartless businessman, broadcast the degrading comments you made against women and highlight your brash and explosive temper. How will you respond. The way we have to respond. Look, we'll make America great again. Our country has gotten soft and weak. We're being taken advantage of by everybody, George, if you look at China, if you look at Japan, if you look at Mexico, if you look at virtually any country we do business with, we lose. We've become -- we've become a debtor nation. We owe $19 trillion. We are going to make America great again. That's what my whole campaign is. We'll make great deals and strengthen the military and take care of our vets. We'll do it right, George. Mr. Trump, thanks for joining us this morning. Thank you very much.
