Donald Trump: Everyone Knows Ron Klain Is a ‘Political Hack’ and a ‘Spin-Master’

‘I don’t want to say that because I don’t know him, but he’s being called a political hack by many people in Washington’

"Well, he [Ron Klain] was the spin master. Everyone knows him as that. He was just a political guy -- some people say political hack. I don’t want to say that because I don’t know him, but he’s being called the political hack by many people in Washington, including, mostly Democrats. And certainly it doesn’t seem like the right thing.

Look, you could help our situation as far as Ebola, just stop the flights. We have 200 people a day coming in from hot spots, whether it's Liberia or different places, coming in from spots, really hot spots, which are -- really are infested and really have a problem. And why are we doing this? Why are we allowing this to happen?

And what’s going to happen when somebody comes in who has Ebola? Now we’re talking about the plane, and all the people on the plane, and where is it going to stop. That hasn’t happened yet, I guess -- maybe we’ll find out about that over the next two weeks. But it hasn’t happened. But you have to stop to fight. You have to stop the people from coming in when they are in the so-called hot spots, there's no question about it."
