‘God Bless America’ star Angelino Silva says he’s grateful for Donald Trump’s victory

ANGELINO SANTOS, host: Donald Trump is the President of the United States and we all need to go to bed.

He is a great leader, a great person.

But I’m also very grateful to the people of America for the opportunity to be here today and to be part of something that’s going to be amazing.

This is our last chance to elect a President who can bring people together, and to make America great again.

And if you’re feeling left out, you should be.

I’m sorry, but I’m here.

You know, we’re all left out here.

I know I’m left out.

We’re left out on a mission.

But the truth is, I feel like a part of a family.

I feel loved.

I have the love and support of my husband and kids.

We all have the same dream.

I want America to be great again, but not because I’m a Republican, but because I know that this is something that I’ve got to do.

And I feel a part to make it happen.

(APPLAUSE) But I am very proud to be a Democrat, because the Democrats are the only party that will stand up to the big corporations, the big banks and the big special interests that are destroying this country.

They want to see America go back to the way it was when we were growing up in the 1960s, the way the Democrats stood up to Wall Street.

The only thing that can make this country great again is to elect the President who will bring people to the polls, who will lead this country to greatness.

But if you don’t want to hear about Donald Trump, we have a little bit of news for you.

It’s true.

I mean, we got to get our hands on Donald Trump.

We got to elect him.

We have to stop him.

But we have to be very careful because if we let him get into the White House, I’m going to have to have my hand in the cookie jar, I’ll have to give it away, I will have to get the cookie.

(LAUGHTER) And I’m not going to stand by and watch it get away from me.

And Donald Trump has proven to be someone who has never run for office before.

He’s not an entertainer.

He doesn’t have the charisma.

He never has the ability to win.

And so, we just got to keep electing him and keep electing the people that we’re going to elect.

And that’s what’s going on right now in this country, and that’s why I’m proud to say that I’m voting for Donald J. Trump for President of America.

Thank you very much.

(AUDIENCE MEMBER: Thank you, Angelinos.)

SANTES: That’s the first question.

Thank the audience for coming out to support our new president.

And we’re proud of it.

We appreciate your support.

We’ll have more to say after this.

I look forward to seeing you at the convention in Cleveland.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK) SANTIS: The next day, our panel of experts will review the election results.

In addition to Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans, there’s an array of Democratic candidates and activists who say they will run.

We will be joined by a woman named Emily Zaccaria.

She’s running as an independent in Virginia.

Emily ZACCARIA: I’m running as a progressive in the Virginia General Assembly, because it’s important to me to take on the entrenched establishment and fight for a fairer future for the Virginians.

And the Virginia Democrats have failed the Virginias working families for far too long.

So I am running to be the next Lieutenant Governor.

(INAUDIBLE) I’m asking for your vote to get me in there.

Thank your for coming.

(APPLIE) I just got off the phone with Emily Zacaras campaign manager.

We hope you’re having a great day, Emily.

And thank you for being with us.

(END VIDEOTAPE) SANDERS: We’ll be back in a moment.

You can watch the entire debate here.

We want to thank our audience here in Cleveland for coming to Cleveland and giving us a chance to discuss the election.

And thanks to our wonderful panelists for their questions.


It was a pleasure to see you tonight.

I hope to see some of you soon.
