Trump: Hatred Between Dems, GOP at Benghazi Hearing ‘Unbelievable’
Donald Trump discussed the recent Benghazi hearing on Sunday, calling it a “very partisan” experience and pointing out that the “hatred” was evident and “unbelievable.”
“It was very partisan, and it looked quite partisan,” Trump said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The level of hatred between Republicans and Democrats was unbelievable.”
“You’ve never seen anything like this.”
Trump made it clear that the partisan tactics is harmful to the United States and prevents our country from accomplishing anything of substance.
“I’m going to unify. This country is totally divided,” Trump said. “Barack Obama has divided this country unbelievably, and it’s all hatred, what can I tell you, I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m going to unify the country.”
The Hill reports:
He said his past support of Democrats shows that he’s above partisan politics.
“One of the big knocks on me was that over the years I’ve gotten along with Democrats and I’ve gotten along with Republicans, and I said that’s a good thing,” Trump said. “As a businessman, I had an obligation to do that, to myself, to my family, to my company, to my employees. I get along with everybody. I will be a great unifier for our country.”
Trump also said he does not consider Clinton an “enemy.”
“I don’t consider her any enemy. Right now she’s an opponent. I don’t consider her an enemy.”
