Sam Clovis, senior campaign advisor to Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, appeared on CNN’s New Day on Friday morning, and what he had to say left many stunned.
According to Mediaite, when host Alisyn Camerota asked Clovis about the riots against Trump, he refused to admit that they are “violence.” Here’s an excerpt of their exchange:
Camerota: What do you think about the idea that he was suggesting that there would be violence? Threatening that there would be violence?
Clovis: I don’t think he said violence, he said riots…
Camerota: Riots are violence, by definition.
Clovis: I don’t accept that.
