(Studio: Anderson Cooper; New York: Jim Acosta) How this was a press conference from Hell with brief remarks expected until he responded to press questions & blamed both sides with Steve Bannon plugged into the alt-right & Trump does not want to irritate his base, how his statements yesterday were forced & how the Republican Party is losing patience discussed.
(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Van Jones, David Axelrod & David Gergen about Trump's remarks. [GERGEN, AXELROD, JONES - offer views on Trump's "shocking" performance with what he said about neo-Nazis, his "massive insecurities" making him dangerous to the country, how this is who Donald Trump is, not what he said yesterday, how he gave aid & comfort to white nationalists: the alt-right is his base, how a president should be pulling us together, but Trump is cheering for one side: the father of a Jewish daughter.]
