message was resonating with voters saying, quote, "i think that most official republicans have no idea how betrayed white people feel by their country being turned into something else. ordinary white folks are sick of having to press one for spanish." ne for spanish this whole time? because it's almost always press one for english and press two for spanish.tainly would explain why you're so angry.

12:44 am
[ laughter ]nd applause ] despite this, trump and his supporters continue to insist ampaign has done nothing to inspire white supremacists. i mean, seriously, where could this group possibly be getting the idea that there is such a nts and good immigrants and that we should only accept the good ones? >> the firstthe bad ones out. >> we have a lot of bad dudes as i said, you have a lot of really bad people here. i think you should let them come back.good people, you let them come back legally. >> seth: and if anyone should be the judge of who is a really good person, it's donald trump.trump reacted last week when a protester at his rally in vermont was being ejected into the freezing cold weather outside. >> get him out of here.oat. don't give him his coat. keep his coat. confiscate his coat. you know, it's about 10 deutside.
