Just look at all of what was said. He talks about his famous wall, about people having to come into the country legally, all about border security and illegal immigration immediately before and after those questions and specifically in response to some of them without missing a beat. Yet you and plenty of others seriously want to believe that right in the middle, he broke stride and talked about something completely unrelated to those subjects for two sentences.
That's pretty damn foolish if you ask me. The media is known for taking comments out of context and trolling with them. Hell, it's an inbred part of politics it seems. And yes, I'm refering to brother and sister becoming mom and dad because it always seems to be the same ones trying to smear the same people or types of people who are not part of their family. It appears you are caught up in it hook, line, and sinker too.
Either Trump's not smart enough to figure out that he is answering a totally different set of policy questions then the reporter is asking, in which case he should be pilloried in the media for not understanding the requirements of the job he is trying to get.
This is most likely it. It is completely supported by his answers. Look at his answers to the MSNBC reporter. When asking about the database it goes like this
MSNBC Reporter: What do you think the effect of that â" how would that work?
Trump: It would stop people from coming in illegally. We have to stop people from coming in to our country illegally.
SO how would a database of legal residents and citizens stop people from coming in to our country illegally? The answer to that is it wouldn't, but one that registers refugees and travelers destined to the US could track them leaving the US and track that they are actually here illegally. But in the same interview, another question was asked and answered in relation to illegal immigrants.
MSNBC Reporter: Would they have to legally be in this database, would they beâ"
Trump: They have to â" they have to be. Let me just tell you: People can come to the country, but they have to come legally. Thank you very much.
So here again, he is talking about people coming into the county and the reporter is talking about a database still.
