Mike Warren, staff writer at The Weekly Standard, talks Trump’s statements about the judge ruling on his Trump University case, the differences between 2012 and 2016, and the weaknesses of the Trump campaign that we might see emerge when it comes to the general election.
Donald Trump has said a lot of crazy and racist statements over the course of his campaign, but this time it seems different. “The fact that Trump seems to be exploiting his position as the presumptive nominee for his own business ends I think does put all of that into focus and make folks wonder, ‘What is it we are really signing up for here?'” Warren said.
As one who has followed both the 2012 and the 2016 campaigns on the trial, Warren explained how what happens on the ground at rallies and events now matters less than what happens on TV. “We political journalists should always keep in mind that so much of what we do doesn’t matter in which the access that most Americans have to our publications… pales in comparison to cable news,” Warren said.
