'There Is Something Known as Video Tape': Krauthammer Responds to Trump's Vow to Be More 'Presidential'
Charles Krauthammer responded to Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo tonight, which broke down Donald Trump’s appeal with frustrated, primarily white voters.
The Factor host had explained that the GOP front-runner’s ascent is largely being fueled by working-class white men who “are furious” with the direction the country is going.
But the division is not about race, Krauthammer argued.
“When you’re talking about the Republican electorate, you’re starting from the premise that you’re talking about whites,” said the syndicated columnist.
“To me, the issue is not race, but class,” he added, in particular with “people making less than $50,000 a year, people with less education.”
“To me, the central problem is a really deep, historical one that neither party knows how to solve – that we have entered an information age, leaving behind the industrial age. And it is littered with people who don’t fit.”
But there won’t be enough of these supporters to win Trump the general election, Krauthammer predicted.
O’Reilly pointed out that Trump has promised to become more “presidential” once he clinches the nomination.

“There is something known as video tape,” Krauthammer replied. “All the Democrats have to do is to play everything he has said up until now.”
