Thousands come to Downtown Erie, many to see the President hold a rally here, some to protest the appearance. Scott Bremner had an exclusive interview with the president…

It was a presidential party both inside and outside Erie Insurance Arena as supporters of the President came to hear familiar themes of a booming economy, patriotism and what the president sees as failed democratic ideas. Outside the arena hundreds of people, inside the arena, thousands of people but floors below that in a quiet room three people… me, my photographer and the President of the United States. We were only granted a few questions. We decided to tackle one of the toughest how to unite a clearly divided country and what role the president should play, not only to the faithful but to all Americans, the President saying the best start is jobs.

“Unity is so important and I think it’s going to happen you see it happening right here as an example in PA is jobs, the steel industry the people who weren’t working are starting to work again,” said President Trump.

While the president admits to ongoing divides racially and economically he also says he finds a silver lining on unity in one of the most unlikely and bitter of places…The confirmation of judge Kavanaugh..

“That sets it back. That sets it back but that battle has been won very rightly won but that battle’s been won I really see a lot of people coming together and say, we don’t want to see that happen again,” added the President.

We’ll have more on our exclusive interview with the President tomorrow right here on
