Trump Adviser on Trump Losing: ‘Says Who?’
A Donald Trump adviser, Michael Cohen, refused to discuss a question about Donald Trump losing during an interview with CNN on Wednesday.
The Hill reports:
“Says who,” Cohen asked CNN anchor Brianna Keilar after she said that the Trump campaign was “down.”
“Polls. Most of them. All of them,” Keilar responded.
“Says who,” Cohen asked again.
“Polls, I just told you. I answered your question,” she responded.
Cohen then asked which polls show the GOP nominee behind.
“All of them,” she answered, before Cohen stopped questioning.
Trump trails Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by 6 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Several recent polls, both nationwide and in battleground states, have shown Clinton with the upper hand.
Earlier in the interview, Cohen slammed the way CNN covered Trump’s staff changes on Wednesday.
“There’s no shake-up. Look at the words that you use and you blast at the bottom of your banner. Shake-up, overhaul, dramatic, desperate measures. There are no desperate measures,” Cohen said on CNN.
“These terms are not indicative of what’s going on at the campaign. All that Mr. Trump has done is he has added to the existing group of winners that he has hired for the campaign.”
