Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “There’s a great visual today of candidate Trump going to check in on his golf resorts in Scotland on the day of the Brexit vote. I don’t know if that’s coincidence or if it’s just smart campaigning to say: Donald hasn’t come out and said that he’s against the Brexit. Obama has and Mrs. Clinton has, but Trump hasn’t said anything about it. To me, there’s a visual there.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest….

Mike: Scott, it is a pleasure to have you, my friend. How are you? Welcome to the Crusade Channel, part of the Veritas Radio Network.
Scott McConnell: Good to be here, Mike. So why Trump wins, I made the argument about why he won the Republican primaries against the expectations of pretty much everyone. That’s because there was a real need for a nationalist candidate. Trump, odd politician that he is, very talented in some ways, very new to the game in some ways, taps into forces which have not been represented, and which need representation and are actually bubbling up in every other Western democracy. The Brexit vote, which you were just talking about, is one indication. There’s a sense in which the citizens of Western democracies feel they’re losing control over their national destiny.
And Trump has tapped into that by talking about immigration and trade, and by not being super hawk on foreign policy, by saying basically the United States doesn’t have a solution to a lot of these problems and we can only bankrupt ourselves and bleed ourselves by trying a lot of world military problems. I think on those three issues, he is actually closer to where a lot of the GOP electorate was. The party elites just didn’t know that. They run on we’re going to cut taxes on various hedge fund guys, cut an immigration deal and legalize the illegal immigrants and let in more. We’re going to make a big fuss about overthrowing Assad and this, that, and the other thing. Somehow the people just – most of the Republican electorate just said: No, that’s not working for us. In so many obvious ways, Republican policies are not working for average Republican voters.

Mike: There’s a great visual today of candidate Trump going to check in on his golf resorts in Scotland on the day of the Brexit vote. I don’t know if that’s coincidence or if it’s just smart campaigning to say: Donald hasn’t come out and said that he’s against the Brexit. Obama has and Mrs. Clinton has, but Trump hasn’t said anything about it. To me, there’s a visual there. There’s another visual there. There’s another object there. You’ve been covering politics for most of your career, I assume.

Mike: There’s another object here, though, and this is something that has been missing, I think, almost completely, although we have had businessmen that wanted to be in politics like Mitt Romney and Ariana Huffington’s husband, who was one of the most wealthy men on the planet. He crashed and burned. There’s something to be said for Donald Trump. His successes aren’t just on paper like Ross Perot’s. Nobody could actually see where Perot was successful. You can go to a Trump resort. I’ve actually been to Royal Turnberry. They wouldn’t let me in, Scott. I drove past it. I know where it is in Scotland. I’ve been to the Trump Tower in New York City. It’s beautiful. You can see Donald Trump’s successes. You can see his footprint there. That’s an object that no other candidate I think has ever had. Do you think that’s a factor?
McConnell: I think it’s a factor. I think it’s definitely a factor that helped him get this far. I don’t know if it’s going to be factor enough to put him over the top. Him visiting Turnberry, I haven’t seen any pictures yet. It just makes me laugh that he’s – he should be on the phone with fundraisers or something like that. Appreciating the importance of the Brexit vote. I think he has come out saying that he thinks Brexit would be a good idea. He, of course, is not a British citizen. He has other things in his life besides the naked pursuit of power. There’s kind of the implicit contrast with Madam Clinton.
