Van Jones: Trump Became A President When He Honored Navy SEAL's Widow


CNN analyst Van Jones comments on President Trump's address to Congress. Jones said that Trump "became president" in the moment where he praised the widow of a recently deceased Navy SEAL.

VAN JONES: He became President of the United States in that moment. Period. There are a lot of people who have a lot of reason fearful of him, mad at him. But that was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics period. And he did something extraordinary, and for people who have been hoping that he would become unifying, hoping that he might find some way to become presidential, they should be happy with that moment.

For people hoping that he would remain a divisive cartoon which he often does, they should be a little worried tonight. That thing you just saw him do, if he finds way to do that over and over again, he'll be there eight years. There was a lot he said in that speech that was counter-factual, not true, not right and I oppose... but he did something you can't take away from him, he became president of the United States.
