Plain talks to Tapper on CNN’s State of The Union about Alaska, Trump, and being the parent of a Down’s Syndrome child. Referring to Trump’s interview with Hugh Hewitt:
I think I’d rather have a president who is tough and puts America first than can win a game of Trivial Pursuit. But I don’t think the public gives a flying flip if somebody knows who, today, is a specific leader of a specific region or a religion or anything.
She also says she’d be interested in the position of Energy Secretary
I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations…I’d get rid of (the Energy Department). And I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.
Trump is interviewed by Tapper on CNN’s State Of The Union. Tapper asks about the “Muslim question” controversy:
Tapper: [Y]ou are running to be president of United States of America. That includes millions of peaceful, law-abiding Muslims who love this country. This man said, quote, we have a problem in this country called Muslims. You’re not responsible for what he says, but this is unvarnished ignorant bigotry. You are a leader. You are the frontrunner in the Republican race. Do you not have a responsibility to call out the hatred?
Trump: We could be politically correct, if you want, but are you trying to say we don’t have a problem. I think everybody would agree. I have friends that are Muslims. They’re great people, amazing people. And most Muslims like most everyone these are fabulous people, but we certainly do have a problem. I mean, you have a problem throughout the world.
Tapper: What’s the problem?
Tump: Well, you have radicals that are doing things. It wasn’t people from Sweden that blow up the World Trade Center, Jake.
Clinton is interviewed by Tapper on State of The Union. Tapper:
With all your experience, why wouldn’t you anticipate that over the course of four years, handling very sensitive diplomatic negotiations, overseeing military interventions and surveillance, why wouldn’t you anticipate that something classified, whether about North Korea or Iran or drones or an informant for the CIA, that it wouldn’t be emailed to you? And why wouldn’t you consider that having it on your personal account with some server in Colorado might be a personal risk
It was allowed under the rules of the State Department…No, no, it was allowed. You know, one of my predecessors did the same thing
