Donald Trump's amusing interview
Guthrie: The, umm, debt ceiling vote, the Republicans are saying they don’t think the debt ceiling should be raised (Trump nods head); businesses have warned there could be dire consequences.
Trump: I don’t care, I wouldn’t raise it.
Guthrie: And you know most economists say that would send the US economy back into a recession?
Trump: What do economists know? Most of them are not very smart.
Guthrie: Is there a right to privacy in the constitution?
Trump: I guess there is…I guess there is….
Trump: Why do you— why just out of curiosity, why do you ask that question?
Guthrie: Well, I’m just wondering how that squares with your pro-life views?
Trump: Well, umm, it’s a pretty strange way of getting to pro-life…I mean; it’s a very unique way of asking about pro-life…. Why are you, what does that have to do with privacy? How you are…how are you equating pro-life with privacy?
Guthrie: Well, you know about the Roe V. Wade decision?
Trump: Yes, sure—Look, I’m for pro-life—I’m pro-life. I’ve said it. I’m very strong there and I’m strong on pro-life….
