The Brody File: Faith, Freedom and Trump? - June 16, 2016

To Trump or not to Trump? That is the question. We're at the Road to Majority Conference with a one on one interview with Donald Trump. Plus, are evangelicals really ready to jump aboard the Trump train? We talk to voters and conservative ... Read Transcript


David: AND WELCOME

TO ANOTHER DONATIO EDITION OF "THE

BRODY FILE."

GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

WE'RE ON THE ROAD THIS

WEEK.

WE TRAVELLED A LONG

DISTANCE FOR THIS, ABOUT

1.2 MILES.

WE'RE HERE AT THE FAITH

AND FREEDOM COALITION

EVENT, THE ROAD TO THE

MAJORITY.

THE EVENT IS OVER, BUT,

BOY, OH, BOY, THE

HEADLINER, DONALD TRUMP.

AND HE WAS ACTUALLY

PLUGGED IN ON THIS

PROMPTER.

AND HE NEEDED TO BE,

BECAUSE, LOOK, FOLKS, IF

DONALD TRUMP IS GOING TO

WIN THE ELECTION, HE NEEDS

TO WIN OVER THE

EVANGELICALS, AND HE HAS

SOME WORK TO DO.

HAVE A LOOK.

WE WILL RESTORE RESPECT

FOR PEOPLE OF FAITH WHO

DUTIFULLY RAISE THEIR

CHILDREN, FOLLOW OUR LAWS

AND RULES, AND WE HAVE TO

REALLY TAKE CARE OF OUR

NEIGHBORS.

BECAUSE RIGHT NOW OUR

NEIGHBORS ARE NOT BEING

TAKEN CARE OF.

WE HAVE TO RESTORE THE

RULE OF LAW ON OUR BORDER,

IN OUR GOVERNMENT, NO

MATTER WHERE IT IS.

David: NOW, LOOK, WE

NEEDED TO GET HIM OFF

PROMPTER, AND WHAT BETTER

WAY TO DO THAT?

WE'RE "THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE EVERYWHERE, BACK

STAGE.

WE WENT BACK STAGE WITH

DONALD TRUMP, INTO THE

GREEN ROOM, TO INTERVIEW

THE DONALD TO TALK ABOUT

EVANGELICALS, TALK ABOUT

THE BIG EVANGELICAL

MEETING COMING UP WITH HIM

AND LEADERS LATER THIS

MONTH.

HERE IS SOME OF THAT

INTERVIEW.

WE'RE HERE WITH DONALD

TRUMP.

TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

THE SPEECH TODAY.

IT SEEMED TO BE, OBVIOUSLY

BEING ON PROMPTER, YOU

WANTED TO GET A FEW THINGS

ACROSS.

IT WAS A COMBINATION OF

TELEPROMPTER AND

OTHERWISE.

IT WAS SOMETHING I DID

WANT TO GET A LOT OF

THINGS ACROSS.

I WANTED TO SPELL OUT THE

GOOD AND THE BAD.

I WANTED TO SAY WHAT IS

GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY,

SOME OF THE GOOD THINGS

AND SOME OF THE BAD

THINGS.

BUT RIGHT NOW THERE AREN'T

TOO MANY GOOD THINGS.

David: THOSE THAT

VOTED FOR TED CRUZ AND DID

NOT VOTE FOR YOU -- DO YOU

THINK YOU HAVE SOME WORK

TO DO?

YOU ALWAYS HAVE WORK TO

DO.

I WILL SAY I WON WITH THE

EVANGELICALS, AND MANY OF

THE STATES WITH EF CULLS,

EVANGELICALS, AND THE

EVANGELICALS WERE

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE TO

ME AND I WILL NEVER FORGET

IT.

AND STATES I WASN'T

SUPPOSED TO WIN WITH

EVANGELICALS, AS YOU KNOW

VERY WELL, I ENDED UP

WINNING.

AND I HAD SOME VERY BIG

VICTORIES.

WE HAD SOME MASSIVE

VICTORIES, LANDSLIDES.

AND A LOT OF THOSE STATES

WERE EVANGELICAL STATES.

IT MUST BE BECAUSE I DO

YOUR SHOW WITH YOU SO

MUCH.

David: I CAN CONFIRM

THAT.

THAT MUST BE THE

ANSWER.

David: LATER THIS

MONTH, MEETING WITH

EVANGELICAL LEADERS, WHAT

DO YOU HOPE TO GET OUT OF

IT?

I LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

BEN CARSON WANTED TO DO

IT, AND YOU KNOW BEN LEFT

AND ENDORSED ME, AND HE IS

A TERRIFIC GUY, A

WONDERFUL MAN.

I'M DOING IT FOR THAT

REASON, AND I FOUND OUT IT

WILL BE QUITE AN IMPORTANT

MEETING.

I LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

David: THERE ARE A

LOT OF FOLKS WHO PUSH BACK

AGAINST THIS IDEA WE'RE

NOT A JUDEO-CHRISTIAN

NATION?

DO YOU PUSH BACK AS WELL?

DO YOU BELIEVE IT IS A

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN NATION?

THAT'S THE WAY IT IS.

WE WANT FREEDOM FOR

EVERYBODY AND GOOD THINGS

FOR EVERYBODY.

BUT EVERYBODY HAS TO BE

COGNIZANT OF THE FACT THAT

WE NEED A SAFE COUNTRY.

THAT'S WHY I TALK ABOUT

RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

IT IS A PROBLEM.

YOU LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING

ON IN FRANCE TODAY WHERE

THEY MAY CANCEL A MAJOR

SOCCER TOURNAMENT BECAUSE

THEY DON'T KNOW IF THEY

HAVE ENOUGH SECURITY TO

HANDLE THE POTENTIAL

THREAT.

I GUESS THREATS HAVE BEEN

MADE.

AND YOU LOOK AT WHETHER IT

IS SAN BERNARDINO OR PARIS

OR ALL OF THESE THINGS, OR

THE WORLD TRADE CENTER --

SO WE HAVE TO BE SMART, WE

HAVE TO BE VIGILANT.

David: THE WORD

AMONG THE STREET AMONG

EVANGELICALS, THEY WANT

YOU TO TONE DOWN THE

RHETORIC.

THEY WANT YOU, FROM THAT

MORAL PERSPECTIVE, TO KIND

OF TONE IT DOWN.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT

THAT?

WELL, YOU HAVE TO BE

WHO YOU ARE.

I'VE GOTTEN THE LARGEST

NUMBER OF VOTES IN THE

HISTORY OF REPUBLICAN

POLITICS BY FAR, SO I WANT

TO KEEP DOING WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

IF YOU ASK ME TO TONE IT

DOWN, I'LL TONE IT DOWN.

David: WE'RE GOING

TO SEE A LOT MORE FROM

DONALD TRUMP.

THEY'RE SAYING WE'RE GOING

TO GET ON HIS PLANE.

THAT WOULD BE NICE.

I WOULD LIKE TO USE THE

GOLD BATHROOM.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON WITH US.

IT IS MILLENNIAL TIME.

"WATTWHAT'S THE HAP."

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE," AT THE FAITH

AND FREEDOM COALITION.

WE LOOKED AROUND, AND

THERE ARE FOLKS WHO HAVE

BEEN AROUND 30, 40 YEARS,

BUT, COME ON O, WE NEED TO

TALK TO MILLENNIALS, WHICH

MAKES ME LOOK HIPPER --

ALTHOUGH I'VE GOT A BAD

HIP -- THAT'S ANOTHER

STORY.

"WHAT'S THE HAP?"

*

David: ALL RIGHT,

HOW DO MILLENNIALS FEEL

ABOUT DONALD TRUMP?

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON ON THE

CASE FROM SOMEWHERE HERE.

ABIGAIL?

Reporter: THANKS,

DAVID.

THIS WEEK WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT FAITH, FREEDOM, AND

DONALD TRUMP.

TRUMP IS OFFICIALLY THE

G.O.P. FEARLESS LEADER FOR

2016, BUT HAS IT CONVINCED

CONSERVATIVE MILLENNIALS

TO HOP ON THE TRUMP TRAIN

OR ARE THEY STILL CRUISING

FOR A BRUISING.

I HIT THE CROWDS TO FIND

OUTER.

I AM SURPRISED HE MADE

IT THIS FAR.

AS A MILLENNIAL, I DON'T

FULLY BACK HIM.

I WANT TO SEE WHERE HE

PLANS ON LEADING THIS

ELECTION NOW THAT HE IS

THE ONLY CANDIDATE.

PERSONALLY, I THINK IT

IS SOMETHING THAT IS A

LONG TIME COMING.

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ANGRY

ABOUT ELECTING REPUBLICANS

THAT DON'T REALLY COME TO

FRUITION WITH THEIR

PROMISES.

I FEEL LIKE DONALD TRUMP

IS A REPRESENTATION OF

PEOPLE WHO WANT THEIR

LEADER TO BE STRONG.

I THINK IT IS AN

OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO

HAVE A VOICE.

Reporter: WOULD YOU

FEEL COMFORTABLE VOTING

FOR HIM IN NOVEMBER?

I'M REGISTERED AS A

REPUBLICAN IN MY COUNTY,

SO I'M GOING TO VOTE AS A

REPUBLICAN.

I THINK AT THIS POINT,

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS

MAKE A JUDGMENT.

IF SOMEBODY WHO IS

CONSTITUTIONAL

CONSERVATIVE, IT LEAVES A

VERY BAD TASTE IN MY MOUTH

WHEN HE WAS NOMINATED IN

MY PARTY, BUT THE SAME

THING HIT'S THESAME THING WHEN MITT

ROMNEY WERE NOMINATED.

IT COMES DOWN TO ME, THE

UNITED STATES SUPREME

COURT, WITH JUSTICE

ANTONIN SCALIA NO LONGER

ON THE BENCH, WE HAVE TO

LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING TO

DEFINE THE NEXT GENERATION

FOR THIS COUNTRY.

SO IT WILL EFFECTIVELY

NULLIFY ANY IMPACT ME AND

MY GENERATION WILL BE ABLE

TO HAVE ON AMERICAN PUBLIC

POLICY.

WHILE MY IDEAL CANDIDATE

MAY NOT HAVE BEEN

NOMINATED, I HAVE TO COME

BACK WITH THE NOMINEE

BECAUSE WE CAN'T HAVE

HILLARY.

Reporter: HOW DO YOU

FEEL ABOUT TRUMP BEING THE

NOMINEE?

IT IS PRETTY

INTERESTING.

HE HAS A STRONG CHARACTER

AND A STRONG PERSONALITY.

SOME OF THE COMMENTS HE

HAS MADE IN PUBLIC KIND OF

WORRIES ME, BUT I DON'T

THINK HE REALLY MEANS

THEM.

I'M INTERESTED TO SEE WHAT

HE'LL DO.

Reporter: WOULD YOU

FEEL COMFORTABLE VOTING

FOR HIM IN NOVEMBER?

HONESTLY, I'VE GOT TO

SAY WITH SO MUCH THAT CAN

STILL HAPPEN IN THE

ELECTION, ESPECIALLY WITH

HILLARY'S INDICTMENT --

I'M KIND OF PUTTING OFF MY

VOTE UNTIL PROBABLY THE

LAST SECOND, REALLY.

A LOT OF STUFF CAN STILL

HAPPEN.

SO WHO KNOWS.

Reporter: IT SOUNDS

LIKE HE HAS A LITTLE MORE

CAMPAIGNING TO DO IF HE

WANTS TO WIN OVER THIS

CROWD.

GOOD THING THIS ELECTION

SEASON IS FAR FROM OVER.

David: ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON HERE ON "THE

BRODY FILE."

> ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE

COME BACK, PRO-LIFE,

DONALD TRUMP -- IT DOESN'T

MATCH UP.

BUT THERE IS A PRO-LIFE

GROUP SAYING, HEY, HILLARY

CLINTON IS A FAR WORSE

ALTERNATIVE.

TO "THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE AT THE FAITH AND

FREEDOM COALITION EVENT,

AND DONALD TRUMP SPOKE,

AND IT WAS FUN.

WE TALKED TO DONALD TRUMP

EARLIER.

AMBER C. STRONG, OUR

PRODUCER EXTRAORDINAIRE,

AND WE PUT HER ON THE

AIR -- HEY, THAT RHYMES.

SHE IS DOWN IN NORTH

CAROLINA, DOING THE STORY

ABOUT SUSAN B. ANTHONY,

THE PRO-LIFE ORGANIZATION

WHO SAID, TRUMP, WE MIGHT

HAVE A FEW ISSUES WITH

HIM, BUT, HEY, YOU'VE GOT

TO VOTE REPUBLICAN.

WHY?

BECAUSE HILLARY CLINTON IS

THE ALTERNATIVE.

Reporter: THESE

VOLUNTEERS ARE CONNECTING

TO VOTERS THE

OLD-FASHIONED WAY, GOING

DOOR TO DOOR, SHARING THE

IMPORTANCE OF ELECTING A

PRO-LIFE PRESIDENT.

WE HAVE THE LARGEST

GROUND GAME IN THE STATE

OF NORTH CAROLINA.

OUR EFFORTS ARE A DIRECT

COUNTER TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

Reporter: AND THAT

EFFORT IS FAR-REACHING, SO

FAR, IN FACT, THAT THEY'VE

KNOCKED ON MORE THAN

100,000 DOORS IN NORTH

CAROLINA ALONE.

THE SUSAN B. ANTHONY LIST

IS ON THE GROUND IN

BATTLEGROUND STATES ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

AND THE MISSION IS SIMPLE:

ELECT A PRO-LIFE

PRESIDENT.

BUT WHEN THE DECISION IS

BETWEEN HILLARY CLINTON

AND DONALD TRUMP, WELL

THEN THE ANSWER ISN'T

ALWAYS SO OBVIOUS.

IT IS NO SECRET THAT TRUMP

SHARES A SHAKY

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

PRO-LIFE COMMUNITY.

HE HAS STUMBLED WHEN ASKED

ABOUT THE ISSUE.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN

PUNISHMENT FOR ABORTION,

YES OR NO, AS A PRINCIPLE?

THE ANSWER IS THAT

THERE HAS TO BE SOME FORM

OF PUNISHMENT.

FOR THE WOMAN?

YEAH.

Reporter: BUT WHEN IT

IS A DECISION REGARDING

ABORTION, THIS GROUP

PREFERS A CANDIDATE

SEARCHING FOR AN ANSWER

THAN ONE WHO CLEARLY MADE

THEIR POINT.

HE IS -- ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL, HE HAS

BEEN ON RECORD NOW TO BE

PRO-LIFE AND TO SWING

PRO-LIFE.

AND WE WANT TO HOLD HIM TO

HIS COMMITMENTS ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

WE'VE GOT TWO CANDIDATES.

AND THE FACT OF THE MATTER

IS HILLARY CLINTON IS WAY

TOO RADICAL FOR THE

COUNTRY.

Reporter: SHE

BELIEVES THE KEY IS TO

TELL PEOPLE ABOUT

CLINTON'S SPECIFIC STANCES

ON ABORTION.

EXAMPLE, CLINTON

RENTLY PRAISED PLANNED

PARENTHOOD AND TOOK A

STAND AGAINST THE PAIN

CAPABLE BILL, A BILL

BANNING ABORTIONS AFTER 20

WEEKS.

I'VE BEEN ON RECORD IN

FAVOR OF A LATE PREGNANCY

REGULATION THAT WOULD HAVE

EXCEPTIONS FOR THE LIFE

AND HEALTH OF THE MOTHER.

I OBJECT TO THE RECENT

EFFORT IN CONGRESS TO PASS

A LAW SAYING AFTER 20

WEEKS, YOU KNOW, NO SUCH

EXCEPTIONS.

Reporter: ADVOCATES

FOR THE LAW SAY THE

EVIDENCE CLEARLY STATES

THAT THE BABY CAN FEEL

PAIN AFTER 20 WEEKS.

THEY SEE THIS INFORMATION

AS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT

TO WOMEN AND HISPANICS,

WHO MAY BE PRO-LIFE, BUT

HAVE DEEP RESERVATIONS

WHEN IT COMES TO A

PRESIDENT TRUMP.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE'RE

MOST EXCITED ABOUT THIS

CYCLE IS OUR OUTREACH TO

HISPANIC VOTERS AND

DEMOCRATS AND WOMEN.

BECAUSE THEY KNOW THESE

ARE TRADITIONAL DEMOCRATIC

VOTER GROUPS, BUT THEY

OFTEN DON'T KNOW JUST HOW

EXTREME THE DEMOCRATIC

POSITION ON ABORTION IS.

Reporter: FOR ANGIE

DOW, THE MISSION ISN'T

POLITICAL, IT IS PERSONAL.

I'M ONLY HERE BECAUSE

MY MOTHER SAID NO TO

ABORTION.

MY MOTHER ACCIDENTALLY GOT

PREGNANT WITH ME.

AND EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A

VERY HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY,

SHE CHOSE TO RISK HER OWN

LIFE TO HAVE ME.

Reporter: AND IT'S

THAT SORT OF MOTIVATION

THAT KINDS OF CANVASSERS

LIKE ANGIE GOING, ONE DOOR

AT A TIME.

AMBER C. STRONG REPORTING

FOR "THE BRODY FILE."

David: AMBER C.

STRONG DOWN THERE IN NORTH

CAROLINA.

SHE CLEARLY WANTED TO GET

OUT OF THE OFFICE, BUT IT

WAS A GOOD STORY.

THANKS, AMBER.

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

EVANGELICALS AND TRUMP.

WE TALK A LOT ABOUT THAT

BIG MEETING COMING UP IN

NEW YORK LATER THIS MONTH.

TWO FOLKS THAT ARE GOING

TO BE IN THAT ROOM, WE

TALK TO THEM NEXT.

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

TIME NOW, EVANGELICALS AND

TRUMP, IT GOES TO THE

OY-GEVALT LEVEL AT TIMES,

FOR SURE.

BUT THE EVANGELICALS

LEADERS, HUNDREDS OF THEM,

ARE GOING TO MEET WITH

DONALD TRUMP LATER THIS

MONTH, UP IN TRUMP TOWER.

I'M SURE THERE WILL BE AN

EXPENSIVE BUFFET -- WE

LIKE FOOD HERE AT "THE

BRODY FILE."

TWO FOLKS WE SPOKE TO THAT

ARE GOING TO BE INSIDE

THAT MEETING, PENNY MASS,

AND TONY PERKINS, FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL.

STALLWORTH CONSERVATIVES,

YOU BETTER NOT MESS WITH

THEM.

> TONY, I HEARD THERE IS

A MEETING IN NEW YORK WITH

TRUMP, AND I UNDERSTAND

YOU'RE GOING TO BE THERE.

EVANGELICAL LEADERS,

OBVIOUSLY, WITH DONALD

TRUMP IN LATE JUNE.

WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO

ACCOMPLISH IN THAT

MEETING, EXACTLY?

HERE IS HOW THIS KIND

OF EVOLVED.

THE RACE BEGAN TO NARROW

AND THE OPTIONS BEGAN TO

BE FEW.

I THINK MANY EVANGELICAL

LEADERS AND EVANGELICALS

ARE NOT SUPPORTIVE, AND

HAVE NOT BEEN SUPPORTIVE

OF DONALD TRUMP.

SOME HAVE, BUT MOST WERE

NOT.

THEY WERE LINED UP WITH

OTHER CANDIDATES.

SO THE IDEA WAS, HOW DO WE

HAVE A CONVERSATION SO

THAT FOR THOSE WHO WOULD

LIKE TO BE WITH DONALD

TRUMP CAN BE WITH HIM.

HOW DO WE CLOSE THAT GAP.

THERE IS A GAP, BUT GIVEN

WHAT THE OPTIONS ARE AND

THE CHALLENGES FACING OUR

NATION, CAN WE CLOSE THAT

GAP?

THIS IS AN HONEST ATTEMPT

TO SIMPLY HAVE A

CONVERSATION.

I'VE BEEN WORKING WITH BEN

BALLIS, AND CARSON IS THE

ONE WHO RAN POINT AND

BROUGHT THIS BEFORE DONALD

TRUMP AND HELPED GET IT

ALL SET UP.

SO I'M HOPEFUL THAT THIS

WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO

HAVE A CONVERSATION.

THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE

SPEECHES.

IT WILL BE QUESTIONS FROM

EVANGELICAL LEADERS AND

SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES FROM

ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

David: SO THEN, WHAT

DOES HE HAVE TO DO EXACTLY

IN THIS MEETING?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE

SPECIFICALLY?

ONE -- LOOK AT THIS: HE

DOES NOT HAVE A TRACK

RECORD ON PUBLIC POLICY.

HIS TRACK RECORD ON ISSUES

IS ACTUALLY KIND OF

COUNTER OF T GROUND HE

STAKED OUT RIGHT NOW.

THAT'S OKAY.

PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THEIR

MINDS.

WE'RE ALL ABOUT PEOPLE

CHANGING THEIR MINDS.

HOWEVER, WHAT DOES THIS

LOOK LIKE?

HOW CAN WE REALLY ANCHOR

OURSELVES TO HIS

COMMITMENTS ON THESE

ISSUES?

I THINK THERE ARE A COUPLE

OF THINGS HE IS GOING TO

HAVE TO DO.

ONE, I THINK THIS VICE

PRESIDENTIAL PICK NEEDS TO

BE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.

I THINK IT SHOULD BE

SOMEONE WHO HAS A

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY, AND

SOMEONE WHO HAS A TRACK

RECORD.

HE IS A PERSON WHO

ACTUALLY BELIEVES IN THESE

THINGS AND HAS ADVOCATED

FOR THEM, AND TAKEN PUBLIC

STANDS ON HIM.

HE WILL HAVE TO COMMIT

THAT THAT PERSON WILL BE

IN HIS INNER CIRCLE, IN

HIS ADMINISTRATION.

I THINK THAT IS CRITICAL.

I THINK HE HAS SPOKEN

SOMEWHAT TO THE ISSUE OF

JUDGES, THAT THAT IS

REALLY THE OVERRIDING

DISCUSSION.

THERE WILL BE VACANCIES.

WE KNOW WHAT HILLARY

CLINTON WILL DO.

WE KNOW WHAT DONALD TRUMP

HAS SAID.

HE GAVE A LIST OF 11.

I THINK HE HAS GOT TO

EXPLAIN THAT A LITTLE

MORE, WHO HE IS GOING TO

LOOK FOR FOR COUNSEL AND

GUIDANCE.

AND A GOOD FAITH GESTURE

WOULD BE HE IS NOT GOING

TO MANIPULATE THE

REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM

BECAUSE THAT IS RIGHT

AROUND THE CORNER.

SO I THINK THOSE ISSUES --

I DON'T THINK HE CAN

NECESSARILY TRANSCEND THE

THEOLOGICAL DIFFERENCES

FROM THE STANDPOINT OF

EVANGELICALS AND THE SEN

CENTRALITY OF THEIR FAITH.

BUT I THINK HE CAN SAY,

I'M GOING TO PROTECT YOUR

RIGHT TO BELIEVE.

I UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT

YOU ARE TO AMERICA AND TO

AMERICA'S MORAL FABRIC,

AND I'M GOING TO FIGHT FOR

YOU.

I THINK COMMUNICATING THAT

IS GOING TO GO A LONG WAY.

LET'S START WITH THIS

EVENT, CO-SPONSORING FOR

THE SECOND YEAR IN A

ROW --

THAT'S RIGHT.

David: TELL ME WHY

EVENTS LIKE THESE ARE

IMPORTANT?

I THINK IT IS REALLY

FANTASTIC TO BRING THE

GRASSROOTS TOGETHER.

"CONCERNED WOMEN FOR

AMERICA" BRINGS IN OUR

STATE DIRECTORS AND A

"YOUNG WOMEN FOR AMERICA"

COLLEGE PROFESSORS.

WE HAVE ABOUT 34 OF THOSE

YOUNG WOMEN HERE AND OUR

ADULT LEADERS.

WE'LL BE DOING TRAINING.

BUT THERE IS ALSO A

SYNERGY WHEN YOU BRING

ACTIVISTS TOGETHER.

AND I'M EXCITED TO TAKE

V.OF THAT.

ADVANTAGE OF THAT AND WE

HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO.

David: LET ME

TRANSITION TO DONALD

TRUMP.

I THINK THERE IS THIS KIND

OF PERIOD WHERE EVERYBODY

HAS TO GO, OKAY, NOW WHAT

DO I DO.

RIGHT.

David: AND WHAT IS

THE NET PROCESS LIKE?

LIKE YOU AND MANY

PEOPLE, I HAD CANDIDATES

THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS I

SUPPORTED, UNTIL FINALLY

AT THE END, I ENDED UP

ENDORSING TED CRUZ, AND HE

DROPPED OUT.

UNLESS YOU'RE A COMPLETE

POLITICAL HACK, YOU NEED

SOME TIME TO KIND OF

RECALIBRATE AND THINK

THROUGH WHAT IT MEANS FOR

YOU.

I'VE JUST BEEN THINKING IT

THROUGH.

I'VE SAID VERY CLEARLY,

DONALD TRUMP HAS MY VOTE.

I KNOW HILLARY CLINTON.

I REMEMBER THE UGLY

CLINTON YEARS.

I REMEMBER BILL CLINTON'S

ANANTICS, AND I REMEMBER THE

WAY THAT WOMEN SUFFERED AT

THEIR HANDS.

THE WAY THEY WERE TREATED

WHEN THEY DARED TO COME

FORWARD AND POINT OUT THE

WAY THEY WERE TREATED AND

MISTREATED BY BILL

CLINTON, AND HOW THAT

CLINTON TEAM, WITH HILLARY

CLINTON AS PART OF THAT,

DEMAINED AND DISPARAGED

THEM.

I WAS WALKING AROUND WITH

AN "I BELIEVE PAULA

BUTTON."

AND I'M NOT READY TO GO

BACK TO THAT.

AND THERE ARE THE KEY

ISSUES I CARE ABOUT,

FAITH, THE ISSUES OF

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, THE

ISSUES OF LIFE, AND THE

SUPREME COURT NOMINEES.

I WILL WORK VERY HARD TO

MAKE SURE SHE DOESN'T

BECOME PRESIDENT.

AS PART OF THAT

CALCULATION, WE UNDERSTAND

WE HAVE TWO CHOICES.

SO WE'RE THINKING THROUGH

WHAT THAT MEANS WITH

DONALD TRUMP.

David: TELL ME A

LITTLE THE STRATEGY FOR

C.W.A., FOR THE GENERAL

ELECTION, HOW DO YOU DEAL

WITH A CANDIDATE LIKE

DONALD TRUMP?

I KNOW SUSAN B. ANTHONY --

THEY'RE FOCUSING MORE ON

HILLARY.

HOW DO YOU CONVEY THE

MESSAGE YOU WANT IN THIS

GENERAL ELECTION?

SUSAN B. ANTHONY'S

LIST -- MARJORIE IS A

CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE.

THEY'RE A PACK.

WE'RE A 501C 3 AND A C-4.

AND WHAT WE DO IS SIMPLY

REGISTER PEOPLE TO VOTE

AND URGE WOMEN TO VOTE.

THERE ARE 60 MILLION

EVANGELICAL AND FAITHFUL

CATHOLIC WOMEN IN THIS

COUNTRY.

IF WE CAN TURN THEM OUT TO

VOTE, WE COULD VIN SWING AN

ELECTION ANY WAY WE WANT

TO.

ON ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, THOSE

PEOPLE SITTING NEXT TO

YOU, ONE WILL NOT BE

VOTING.

WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE

TALK TO OUR OWN PEOPLE.

WE DO A LOT OF THAT KIND

OF WORK.

WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN FOR

SUCCESS FOR DONALD TRUMP

IS HE NEEDS TO MAKE SURE

HE IS ABLE TO SPEAK TO

THOSE WOMEN.

THEY'RE THE SOLDIERS IN

ANY CAMPAIGN.

THEY'RE THE PEOPLE THAT

ARE WILLING TO GO DOOR TO

DOOR FOR A CANDIDATE, OR

WILLING TO PHONE BANK,

WILLING TO VOLUNTEER THEIR

TIME.

PUT THEIR BABY IN THEIR

STROLLER AND GO TO WORK

FOR A CANDIDATE.

THEY'RE THE HEARTBEAT OF

ANY CAMPAIGN.

YOU CAN'T REALLY BUY THAT

AFFECTION.

AND SO YOU'VE GOT TO EARN

IT.

YOU'VE GOT TO WIN IT.

I THINK HE TOOK SOME

POSITIVE STEPS FORWARD

TODAY, AND I LOOK FORWARD

TO SEEING WHAT HE DOES

NEXT.

David: BUT HE HAS

WORK TO DO?

OF COURSE.

David: ALL RIGHT.

UP NEXT, IT IS A DONALD

David: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE BRODY FILE."

GET READY, IT'S A DONALD

TRUMP OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE

WEEK.

*

[HA David: LOOK, HE

RECENTLY DID AN INTERVIEW

WITH CAL THOMAS, A

WELL-RESPECTED

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

WRITER, AND HERE IS WHAT

HE SAID ABOUT JESUS.

"JESUS TO ME IS SOMEBODY I

CAN THINK ABOUT FOR

SECURITY AND CONFIDENCE,

SOMEBODY I CAN REVERE IN

TERMS OF BRAVERY AND IN

TERMS OF COURAGE.

AND BECAUSE I CONSIDER THE

CHRISTIAN RELIGION SO

IMPORTANT, SOMEBODY I CAN

TOTALLY RELY ON IN MY OWN

MIND."

GOOD FOR YOU, DONALD.

FOR SURE, BRAVE, ALL OF

THAT STUFF, IT'S ALL TRUE.

BUT IF THERE IS A MESSIAH,

HE IS JESUS, AFTER ALL,

OUR LIVING SAVIOR.

MAYBE SOME OF THAT COULD

HAVE BEEN PUT IN.

WE'LL WORK WITH YOU, DON'T

WORRY.

IT'S A PROCESS.

I'M SURE WE'RE GOING TO

TALK TO DONALD TRUMP IN

THE NEAR FUTURE ABOUT ALL

OF THAT.

UNTIL NEXT TIME,

EVERYBODY, GOD BLESS YOU
