Donald Trump ABC Interview With George Stephanopoulos…

abc_always_blame_conservatives_george_stephanopoulos

It would appear Bill Clinton’s former White House Communications Director, George Stephanopoulos, is up to his old tricks again.

Perhaps most have forgotten a Jan ’12 New Hampshire debate when Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney a very carefully worded and scripted question, seeming to come out of left field, about whether states have the right to ban contraception.   Exactly two weeks later the DNC 2012 campaign attack narrative “Romney’s War On Women” began.

This interview has all the same characteristics:

Trump Campaign Releases Full Transcript of Khizr Khan Answer Ahead of Mr. Trump’s ABC This Week Sunday Interview With George Stephanopoulos;

Trump Calls Captain Humayun Khan A “Hero,” Urges Vigilance In Defeating Radical Islamic Terrorism And Criticizes Hillary Clinton’s Central Role In Destabilizing The Middle East:  Press Release:


(New York, NY) July 30th, 2016– The Trump for President campaign today released the full transcript of Donald J. Trump’s response to a pre-taped ABC This Week question from George Stephanopoulos referencing criticism from Khizr Khan.

As shown in the full transcript, Mr. Trump doesn’t compare his sacrifices to anybody else’s, and in fact praises Mr. Khan and wishes him well.

Mr. Trump also released a statement Saturday praising Mr. Khan’s son, Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed serving in Iraq:

“Captain Humayun Khan was a hero to our country and we should honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country safe. The real problem here are the radical Islamic terrorists who killed him, and the efforts of these radicals to enter our country to do us further harm. Given the state of the world today, we have to know everything about those looking to enter our country, and given the state of chaos in some of these countries, that is impossible. While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution, (which is false) and say many other inaccurate things. If I become President, I will make America safe again.

“Further, Hillary Clinton should be held accountable for her central role in destabilizing the Middle East. She voted to send the United States to war against Iraq, helped lead the disastrous withdrawal of American troops years later that created the vacuum allowing the rise of ISIS, and has never met a regime change she didn’t like (which have all been disasters) – not to mention her invasion of Libya and her abandonment of American personnel in Benghazi. The loss of these lives in Libya is directly traceable to Clinton, but their families’ testimonials were rejected by the media.

Clinton’s actions have been reckless and have directly led to the loss of American lives. And her extreme immigration policies, as also laid out by American victims in Cleveland, will cause the preventable deaths of countless more — while putting all residents, from all places, at greater risk of terrorism.

As Bernie Sanders said on numerous occasions, Hillary Clinton suffers from “bad judgement.” She is not qualified to serve as Commander in Chief.”Donald J. Trump


FULL ANSWER TRANSCRIPT:

STEPHANOPOULOS:

I don’t know if you saw this speech, but there was a man named Khizr Khan speaking at the Democratic Convention last night. His son, Captain Humayun Khan, was killed serving in Iraq. And he had some very tough questions for you. He said you wouldn’t have even let his son in America.

TRUMP:

He doesn’t know. He doesn’t know that. I saw him. He was, you know, very emotional and probably looked like a nice guy to me. His wife, if you look at his wife, she was standing there. She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn’t allowed to have anything to say. You tell me. But plenty of people have written that. She was extremely quiet. And it looked like she had nothing to say. A lot of people have said that. And personally, I watched him. I wish him the best of luck.

STEPHANOPOULOS:

What would you say to that father?

TRUMP:

Well, I’d say we’ve had a lot of problems with radical Islamic terrorism. That’s what I’d say. We have a lot of problems, where you look at San Bernardino. You look at Orlando. You look at the World Trade Center. You look at so many different things.

You look at what happened to the priest over the weekend in Paris, where his throat was cut, 85-year-old, beloved Catholic priest. You look at what happened in Nice, France, a couple of weeks ago. I’d say you’ve got to take a look at that, because something is going on. And it’s not good.

STEPHANOPOULOS:

He said you have sacrificed nothing and no one.

TRUMP:

Well, that sounds – who wrote that? Did Hillary’s scriptwriters write it? Because everybody that went out there, we also had John Allen who failed with ISIS. I mean, he was a general, Allen, General Allen. He went out. And he was ranting and raving. And then I read a report. He was in there for a number of months. And he failed with ISIS.

STEPHANOPOULOS:

You saw Hillary say last night, you don’t know more than the generals.

TRUMP:

Well, I’ll tell you, the generals aren’t doing so well right now. Now, I have a feeling it may be Obama’s fault. But if you look at ISIS…General McArthur and General Patton, they’re spinning in their graves. The generals certainly aren’t doing very well right now. And General Allen, after I saw he was on ranting and raving about me, who he never met, I checked up. Guess what. They weren’t so happy with him. He didn’t beat ISIS. He didn’t beat ISIS. He didn’t do even well with ISIS.

STEPHANOPOULOS:

How would you answer that father? What sacrifice have you made for your country?

TRUMP:

I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve done, I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.

STEPHANOPOULOS:

Those are sacrifices?

TRUMP:

Oh, sure. I think they’re sacrifices. I think when I can employ thousands and thousands of people, take care of their education, take care of so many things, even in military. I mean, I was very responsible, along with a group of people, for getting the Vietnam Memorial built in downtown Manhattan, which to this day people thank me for.

I raised, and I have raised, millions of dollars for the vets. I’m helping the vets a lot. I think my popularity with the vets is through the roof, far greater than hers. She’s done nothing. All she’s done is tell everybody that the vets are in good shape. They’re fine. And they’re not fine. People are waiting on line for seven days to see a doctor. She thinks it’s fine.

    From husband:
    THE HARVARD “LAW” SCHOOL SCAM
    Don’f for a minute buy the “Harvard Educated” line about the father of the Muslim soldier. Khan is educated in India, his undergraduate degree in law is from Punjab University. He is a lawyer in the same way that a Pakistani-educated chiropractor is a doctor. Mr. Khan is a computer geek who works in computer-related electronic discovery and technical compliance with HIPPA (medical privacy) laws. His “LL.M.” is from Harvard. Here are the requirements from the Harvard website:
    “International LL.M. students are required to take at least one of the following courses in American Law: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Corporations, Criminal Law, Family Law, Legislation and Regulation, Property, Taxation, and Torts. International students also must write a paper of 25 or more pages that involves independent reflection, formulation of a sustained argument and, in many cases, outside research. Papers may be written either independently or in conjunction with a seminar. Finally, we strongly encourage students to take at least one course focusing on legal history, legal theory, policy analysis or legal process.”
    “All students must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 23 credit and a maximum of 27 credit in one academic year; most students complete between 23 and 25 credits. The forgoing minimum and maximum include the one credit assigned for completion of the portion of the Legal Research, Writing and Analysis course that takes place during Orientation. Students also must satisfy some specific course and written work requirements.”
    The only requirement for admission is a degree from a foreign university — not competitive and no standardized testing or minimum GPA. This program is specially-created for foreigners like Khan to allow them lawyer status in a mega-firm like the one he used to work for. As a US-educated JD, I look upon him the same way a surgeon looks upon a foreign-educated anesthetist: put the needle in, give the meds, don’t screw it up, if you do don’t do anything and call me. Here, Khan has taken first-year law school courses under the Harvard name without any regard to his qualifications to be there. Now, in the NY bubble, he can say the he is “Harvard-educated” and get a license to call himself a lawyer. He is now a “consultant” in technical matters and used to be a technical guy in a big firm. He has never had a real client, given legal as opposed to technical advice or negotiated a legally binding contract.
    Mr. Khan didn’t need an LL.M. to do what he does. He needed an LL.M. to get hired in NY and D.C. it’s like a driving test. Anyone can pass it and you don’t really need it to drive. In reality, they just want the fees – the DMV and Harvard.
    Now, why is this relevant to the discussion? After all, his kid is a fallen hero. I’ll leave that alone for the moment (although I suggest that you consult posts on Conservative Treehouse for pointed comments about that).

    I might like to see a Trump reply in the manner of, “Hillary has sacrificed a lot for this country. She sacrificed 4 lives in Benghazi.”
