Michael Cohen: I Hope History Remembers Me As Someone Who Tried To Bring Country Together


Michael Cohen said he hoped historians would remember him as someone who helped "bring this country back together" in his interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos.

Stephanopoulos: You worked for him a long time. I was around you many, many years ago where you seemed to be having fun.

Cohen: Correct -- there was a lot of fun going on at the Trump organization.

Stephanopoulos: ... working with Donald Trump ...

Cohen: I enjoyed working with my colleagues there as well.

Stephanopoulos: When did it change?

Cohen: You know, I can't give you a specific time that it went from point A to point B. It was just a change. I will tell you that the gentleman that is sitting now in the Oval Office, 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, is not the Donald trump that I remember from Trump Tower.

Stephanopoulos: ... how so?

Cohen: He's a very different individual.

Stephanopoulos: What's happened to him?

Cohen: I think the pressure of the job is much more than what he thought it was going to be. It's not like the Trump organization where he would bark out orders and people would blindly follow what he wanted done. There's a system here, he doesn't understand the system, and it's sad because the country has never been more divisive. And one of the hopes that I have out of the punishment that I've received, as well as the cooperation that I have given, I will be remembered in history as helping to bring this country back together.
