It was hard to miss the presumptive republican nominee landing at Sky Harbor this afternoon.
Donald Trump's private Boeing 757, labeled with the famous moniker, touched down as he prepared to speak to a crowd at the Veteran's Memorial Coliseum.
But before Donald Trump spoke publicly to his supporters, he spoke one-on-one with our very own John Hook for an exclusive interview.
“Are you going to name your VP there? I will be naming my VP there. Is it Newt Gingrich…uh I don’t want to say, but I love Newt. He’s a wonderful guy.
Trump amassed 14 million votes in the primaries; the most ever for a republican nominee.
“Yet you have these groups trying to thwart your nomination in Cleveland, what gives? Well its actually groups I’ve already beaten, but I think probably if you look at it I think it’s more of a press thing. Number one, it’s not legal, number two, we went through a process of one year and I broke the all-time record and got 14 million voters and I really think it’s more of a press fabrication than a real story to be honest with you.”
“You know in this state we have a million Hispanic voters, 5th most in the country. What would you like to say to those folks about the question of border and that that in your mind doesn’t mean you hate brown people? That’s absolutely true. We need security to have a country we need border security, and I will say for all the illegals here, they’re on my side because they don’t want their job taken away. They don’t want their house taken away. They want to see jobs in so they’re going to get even better jobs, so I’ve been doing really well the Hispanics.
“Does it worry you today that the top 3 republicans in the state, the Governor, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Jeff Flake, they’re not here? Normally they would be around the republican nominee like a moth to the flame. They’re not here today. What does that say about… does it spell trouble for you?
“No I just left the governor, he’s a wonderful guy. So you did see Doug Ducey today? I did, a wonderful guy.
“I think they’re going to end up probably wanting to come with us because I’m polling very well in Arizona.”
“You know endorsements don’t mean very much to me, they really don’t. They don’t mean a lot other than Bobby Knight in Indiana. That helped. That’s a difference maker and Tom Brady likes me a lot and I’ve won every state in a landslide.
