After Trump received a letter of endorsement from 88 retired military figures, Hall pointed out to Delgado that it was impossible to verify that Trump had donated to veterans charities because he refused to release his tax returns.
“We don’t know where he’s invested his money,” Hall remarked, getting the interview back on track. “There was a New York Times report about ties to Chinese banks, potential investments in Russia. We need to know more about this presidential candidate. Why not release that information?”
“He would say that there’s no way Hillary Clinton had this conversation and that this lawsuit did not come up,” Hall countered. “Remember all the suspicions regarding [Attorney General Loretta Lynch] and Bill Clinton on the plane? Donald Trump would not accept that as answer.”
“We’re going to talk about his immigration comments,” Hall shot back. “I fully realize that you’ve come locked and loaded but what we’re going to do is we’re going to talk about what your candidate is now saying on the campaign trail 62 days out.”
MSNBC host Tamron Hall refused on Monday to let A.J. Delgado, a senior Trump adviser, change the subject away from the GOP candidate’s illegal campaign donations, shifting immigration policy and reluctance to release his tax returns.
