morning." >> welcome. >> thank you. >> are you going to do what a campaign manager does in terms of what's happening in each state? or managing the candidate? >> a little bit of both. i think it's important to make sure internally our structure is sound, that people have the equipment, tools they need and that includes our data folks, our ground game. i'm a big believer of retail politics and donald trump is a fantastic retail candidates. >> when he doesn't get in front of his own message. >> we started monday with a very muscular speech about radical islamic terrorism, why it matters, how to fight it. many feel we've been at war for 15 years against an enemy we can't name and hardly see but a majority of americans feel

2:47 am
rally where he's able to interact with the individuals and you don't see the local media inert views. so, yes, i am confident he can stay on message but also the message has to be one of substance, it has to be about issues. i'd rather lose a campaign where we put it all in the field substntively, where people saw the difference in the major issues of the day. this is about style, he can go fun and successful and lucrative for him. they want it to be about tone and temperament. it needs to be about facts and figures. >> he has received an intelligence report. did he believe it? >> i can't disclose it. i can tell you he took it very seriously. >> you can't disclose whether he believed it or not? >> not the details.
2:48 am
