Monday night at the Republican National Convention there was a little scrum and I went to investigate who was there. I ran into famous boxing promoter Don King, who was absolutely furious.

King explained that Donald Trump asked him to speak during the convention. However, the Party said no way.

According to King, it was because of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.

I asked King how he feels about being a Trump supporter when there are white supremacists supporting the Republican candidate as well. Now, I don’t accuse Trump of seeking their support, but it’s somewhat of a phenomenon that these organizations are supporting him.
