JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): Donald Trump's family has done more for this country than any Democratic elected official. He has provided more jobs in the real estate industry, in the fashion industry, in the hotel and casino industry, he has created more wealth for anybody in this entire country. So to smear them as mafia or unpatriotic is absolutely shameful and I think everybody needs to wake up and realize this family is a patriotic family and what's happening right now is a coup against the will of the American people.

* Correction: The headline and transcript on this post originally quoted Watters as saying, “What’s happening right now is a coup against the wealthy American people.” Watters actually said, “What’s happening right now is a coup against the will of the American people.” Media Matters regrets the error.
