Priebus: Small Policy Differences Between Trump, Top Republicans

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, who will become President-elect Donald Trump’s chief of staff, says on MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" that policy "conflicts" between Trump and establishment Republicans "are not as great" as have been portrayed.

  • Trump tax reform plan "80% or 90% in line" with plans in House; overlap on immigration: Priebus
    • "I wouldn’t say that you know this free trade obsession is something that can’t get looked at in regard to making things more fair"
  • Incoming chief strategist Steve Bannon "a generous, hospitable, wise person," accusations that he’s "a racist, anti-Semite" unwarranted, Priebus says
  • Says people have a right to protest Trump, but "let him govern, let him make you proud of our country"
  • Speech by Trump emphasizing he would be president for all is "good advice"
    • "No matter your race, your gender, your ethnic background, he wants to make you proud of our country"
