Trump: I Don’t Talk About Birtherism Anymore
SCARBOROUGH: “Donald, we got to let you go, but very quickly, before you go. You had an interview with Scott Pelley on '60 minutes'. He kept asking you about birthism. You kept brushing it off saying you won't going to talk about that anymore. Are you not going to talk about that anymore? If not --”[crosstalk]
TRUMP: “I don't talk about it anymore. You know what I talk about? I talk about the vets, I talk about what we're going to do to bring jobs back. I talk about the military. I don't talk about it anymore. The problem with talking about it, you talk about it, that's all people want to talk about. They don't want to get on to trade with China and how we're getting killed; they don't want to get on how badly treated the vets are; they don't want to talk about immigration. I don't talk about it anymore. I talk about jobs and other things.”
SCARBOROUGH: “So you're not going to talk about it at all the rest of the campaign?”
TRUMP: “I don't talk about it, Joe. I mean, people ask me a question and I say I want to talk about jobs, I want to talk about trade, I want to talk about other things. And you know what, they immediately go on to it.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Hopefully, we will have a campaign that does focus on jobs and trade and Syria and Russia.”
TRUMP: “I agree.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Issues that matter."
