I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what’s going on,” said Trump shortly after he stepped off his plane in Colorado Springs. Trump spoke 45 minutes after the blast that injured 29 people and he used the opportunity to say the country needs to get “tough.”
“But boy, we are living in a time—we better get very tough, folks. We better get very, very tough. We’ll find out. It’s a terrible thing that’s going on in our world, in our country and we are going to get tough and smart and vigilant. … We’ll see what it is. We’ll see what it is.”
He then proceeded to talk poll numbers. “A new poll … just came out, we’re up four points in Colorado,” Trump said.
