CNN Recalls Trump ‘Pledge’ from the Campaign Trail After His Comey ’Loyalty Pledge’ Denial

Earlier today, President Trump denied that he asked FBI Director James Comey to pledge his loyalty. CNN tonight played that clip right before showing a clip of Trump asking his supporters at a rally to make a pledge.

Back in March 2016, Trump asked for his supporters to raise their hands and pledge that they would vote for him in the primary.

Now, asking your own campaign supporters to pledge to vote for you is, well, very different from asking the head of the FBI to pledge his loyalty to you, but Wolf Blitzer said, “He says he would never ask anyone for a pledge, he clearly asked those folks for a pledge.”

Brianna Keilar said, more seriously, this does raise the question of whether Trump will be able to recall what he said when presented with an account written by Comey right afterwards.
