Van Jones: The Left Is "Still Mad... At Every Single Person" Who Voted For Trump


CNN host Van Jones appeared on ABC's 'The View' on Wednesday to discuss Sen. Bob Corker's criticism of the Trump administration, the crisis in Puerto Rico, the Harvey Weinstein scandal, and the animosity liberals still hold for the people who voted for President Trump.

VAN JONES: Right now I don't see Democrats looking at the situation and saying, you know what, maybe we drew our circle too small.

I love that we're hugging LGBT and Muslims and all the people who usually don't get a hug. We're hugging them, but maybe we need a bigger hug, and include some of those folks in Appalachia...

There may be some leaders how are, unfortunately... When I listen to liberals, when they're not on TV trying to make it sound good, we're still in grief; we're still mad.

And we're not just mad at Trump, who we should be mad at. We're mad at every single person who voted for Trump, even people who have no jobs, even coal miners who have black lung disease and who are dying and Democrats don't have anything to say about it for years.

In my conversations with liberals, it's like ‘they,' ‘those' Trump voters, ‘them.' ‘I don't understand how those people could ever do that.' In America, we don't have to agree. We have to try to understand.
