EXCERPT:

LEWIS: "If you’re an average working class Trump voter and you’re paying taxes, you’re paying more taxes than Donald Trump, in a sane world, you would be mad about that. And if Donald Trump wants to cast himself as this populist, you would laugh at him. And the other point, of course, the one that may be doesn’t have the same cache with the Trump populist voter, but is still super important is the possibility that Trump, because of his financial situation, could be, you know, compromised. Certainly, there’s a lot of conflicts of interest. So this should be a serious — both a serious story and a political problem for Trump. I think it’s the former. Actually, I don’t think it really is the latter, but probably should be."
