I understand that there are other people in the country besides me, and if I’m a president, I’ve got to be the president of everybody – not just the people who think just like me. My goal is going to be to win them over to my point of view on a lot of things, but there still has to be a sense in which we respect each other and we work to solve problems. That’s where we’ve failed. Our government is dysfunctional.”
