Trump Doesn’t Really Answer Chris Wallace’s Questions ‘To Show Unpredictability’
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump sat down with Chris Wallace on Fox New Sunday for a “huuuuuuuge” two-part interview. Not too long after, Wallace discussed the New York real estate mogul’s talking points (or lack thereof) with Washington Post opinion writer Charles Lane. His thoughts? “None of it made sense.”
That’s one of the larger conclusions you can draw about the interview, especially since Trump didn’t adequately answer most of Wallace’s questions. Instead, he refused to give specific answers and emphasized his desire to remain “unpredictable” during the campaign.
“Let’s do a lightening round. Quick questions, quick answers,” said Wallace. “Would you be willing to use the debt limit and risk the possibility of the country going into default to get more spending cuts?”
“I would use the debt limit… I don’t want to say… I want to be unpredictable because we need unpredictability,” Trump rambled. “Everything is so predictable with our county.”
Such is how informative (or not) Trump was throughout the interview. Aside from stressing his unpredictability as a candidate, the Donald gave Wallace mostly non-answers, repeatedly claimed that there was “tremendous discontent” in the country, and throughout insults left and right.
As for his current media-based argument with fellow Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, Wallace asked Trump whether or not he “blamed” former President George W. Bush for 9/11.
“Jeb said, ‘We were safe with my brother,'” said Trump. “Well the World Trade Center just fell down! Am I trying to blame him? I’m not blaming anybody, but the World Trade Center came down. So when he said we were safe, that’s not safe.”
When Wallace asked Trump how thing would have been different then were he president, he immediately started talking about how “tough” he is on illegal immigration.
Jeb also discussed the matter on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning during a live interview.
