PARIS DENNARD: Look, all I know, Anderson, is that the president disavowed back in March. He made a very bold statement two days ago, and he clarified the statement and went further today. I am -- I have no issue with what the president said because I think what the president said was correct.
And when it comes to his associations with Steve Bannon and other people like that, there is no evidence, there are no facts and no proof that Steve Bannon is whispering in his ear, telling him not to disavow, not to say these things because what we know is, the president has disavowed.
