Jun 7, 2024   •   47 MIN
Does former President Trump mean what he says when he keeps suggesting he'll use the justice system for payback if he's elected again? We're Keeping Them Honest. Speaking in Phoenix, at an event put on by conservative activist Charlie Kirk, Trump confined the bulk of his remarks to immigration and the economy, but also railed against his criminal prosecutions saying "We're in more danger from the enemy from within.

Biden-Harris national campaign co-chair and former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu speaks to Anderson about Trump's comments.
