Donald Trump and Mike Pence were interviewed on 60 Minutes. The interviewer, Lesley Stahl, had an obvious agenda. Her “gotcha” questions centered around attempts to highlight disagreements between the two candidates on the Republican ticket. One of the questions was about Trump’s plan to ban Muslims, which Pence had said was unconstitutional. Trump’s response, in part:
“The Constitution … there’s nothing like it. But it doesn’t necessarily give us the right to commit suicide as a country – OK?”
What does this mean? It could certainly be interpreted as it is OK to disregard the constitution when it is convenient, or deemed necessary by the President!
But, we’ll never know. Stahl was so obsessed with her agenda and she failed to follow up. Trump’s attitude toward the constitution is far more important that the fact that the two candidates disagreed, or even currently disagree, on some of the issues.
