(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The history-making week in Washington after tweets from President Trump condemning four Democratic minority Congresswomen introduced. [TRUMP - says it is unfair how this president is being treated.] Live discussion held with historian David Naftali & CNN's David Gergen about Trump. [NAFTALI - offers views on the political tactic of tapping into fears of others with the parallel being Millard Fillmore, who ran on an "anti" party, how there is still a group that responds to Trump's appeal in a time of political cowardice.] [GERGEN - offers views on how this is very discouraging, how Woodrow Wilson brought racism into the White House, but it has become unacceptable for a president to say racism out loud, how the Republican future is bleak in the long term in a new politics down the road.]
- Cooper, Anderson
