Donald Trump Calls the Benghazi Committee Hearings 'Very Partisan'

On Sunday, Donald Trump spoke with CNN's "State of the Union" about the controversial Benghazi committee's hearing featuring former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

He said, “It was very partisan, and it looked quite partisan. The level of hatred between Republicans and Democrats was unbelievable. You’ve never seen anything like this." Trump went on to say that the partisanship “hurts both parties” and “hurts the country” because it prevents the government from accomplishing anything.

He then said “I’m going to unify. This country is totally divided. Barack Obama has divided this country unbelievably, and it’s all hatred, what can I tell you, I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m going to unify the country.” Trump added that his previous support of Democrats shows his ability to get above partisan politics.

He explained “One of the big knocks on me was that over the years I’ve gotten along with Democrats and I’ve gotten along with Republicans, and I said that’s a good thing. As a businessman, I had an obligation to do that, to myself, to my family, to my company, to my employees. I get along with everybody. I will be a great unifier for our country.” Of Hillary Clinton, he added, “I don’t consider her any enemy. Right now she’s an opponent. I don’t consider her an enemy.”
