Willie Geist: Trump ‘Gave a Good Speech off a Teleprompter’

‘Let’s see what he does today and tomorrow and let’s remember what he’s done over the last couple of years’

GEIST: “If you took that speech last night in a vacuum, having known nothing previously about Donald Trump, it would have been a pretty conventional Republican president speech. It had a lot of conservative notes, he touched on the base, he hit immigration hard, which he knows his voters are worried about. But we can’t take it in a vacuum. It’s totally divorced from the presidency he’s had for the last year. When he talks about a message of unity, there’s been no unity in this country for the last year and that’s been driven by him. So again this is rhetoric. He gave a good speech off a teleprompter. But let’s see what he does today and tomorrow and let’s remember what he’s done over the last couple of years.”
