BILL O'REILLY (HOST): After the debate, Charles Krauthammer and I had our own back and forth over Trump. Charles believes the man is unqualified to be president, and says some of Trump's statements are quote “nonsensical”. I see things a bit differently. Donald Trump understands the anger sweeping America today, and is tapping into that anger. He's not really concerned that much much with policy right now, he is running on emotion. His campaign strategy has been brilliant, but if you take what he says literally he can be a frightening guy. I see many of his statements as over the top rhetoric, designed to get him votes, not necessarily in stone policy pronouncements.
