‘You only want to talk about negative. Why don’t you bring up the positive polls, Anderson?’ Trump asked.
‘You start off the interview with a poll I didn’t even know existed,’ Trump continued.
Cooper, starting to laugh, replied: ‘I started off the interview with a Washington Post poll because I knew you would accuse me of that!’
‘Sure, sure, sure,’ Trump said. ‘All I know is every poll I’m leading in and you give me those two polls where it’s different states – they’re not even a national poll.’
