(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Rick Santorum & Bakari Sellers about Trump tweets. [SANTORUM - offers views on how Trump tweets get in the way of him doing a good job as president: all is personal: he just attacks people he disagrees with.] [SELLERS - offers views on how the country is being desensitized by all the tweets when he can set policy by his tweets, how he will not rebuke white supremacy, how he will not offend his base & uses racism as political currency.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with "New York Times" writer Wahahati Ali about Trump. [ALI - offers views on why Trump is a racist because he gives cover to white nationalists as in Charlottesville, how he is tough on Muslims but not on the New Zealand killer, who lauded Trump in his manifesto, how he spoke about the immigration "invasion"so he is the "reigning symbol of white identity," how he mainstreams white supremacy theories whether he is a racist or not: a conspiracy theory,]
