JULIE ROGINSKY (CO-HOST): Let's be clear. He is not speaking to a black audience. He is going to a back room with a pastor. He has gotten the questions pre-submitted to him --
ROGINSKY: Listen, let me finish my point. Let me finish my point. He has designed the answer. He has no problem going to a town in Wisconsin that is vastly white and discussing the plight of the black community in front of a huge white audience but he has no ability to do that in front of a black audience, to look them in the face and repeat those same points.
TUCKER CARLSON: What is wrong with speaking to white audience?
ROGINSKY: Nothing is wrong speaking to a white audience, but --
CARLSON: Then why did you note it twice?
ROGINSKY: I noted it twice because he was talking to white audience about the issues that plagued the black community.
CARLSON: What’s wrong with that?
ROGINSKY: Why doesn’t he do that to the black community?
CARLSON: Well I guess he’s going to do it.
ROGINSKY: No he’s not, actually, Tucker. He’s actually not --
CARLSON: But everyone has television, you can see what he says by turning it on.
ROGINSKY: No, it is not television. I’m sorry, it’s behind closed doors, no press allowed.
DAGEN MCDOWELL (CO-HOST): No, it’s being broadcast after the fact.
ROGINSKY: After the fact, after it’s been edited. They have editing rights.
CARLSON: Whatever, we know what Trump thinks, he’s going to tell you on Twitter. I mean, he’s not hiding what he thinks.
ROGINSKY: No, excuse me, excuse me, no. It’s a huge difference. He has editing power over this tape. You know what this is, this is a campaign commercial.
MCDOWELL: There are questions and then he will also make remarks after the fact and it will be seen.
