Van Jones: Trump ‘Was Selling Sweet-Tasting Candy with Poison in It’

During CNN’s coverage of the State of the Union on Tuesday, CNN Political Commentator and former Obama adviser Van Jones stated President Trump’s State of the Union involved selling “candy with poison in it” and intentionally suggested “that DREAMers are gang members.”

Jones said, “Let me just say, master salesperson, he used all of those stories really well. He was selling sweet-tasting candy with poison in it. What he said…about those young people, he implied, and he did it deliberately, that DREAMers are gang members.”

He added, “Republicans cannot continue to smear these young DREAMers and associate them with gangs that they’re not a part of.”
