Trump denies that anyone has been violent at his rallies and refuses to dial down the rhetoric

CNN host Jake Tapper pleaded with Donald Trump on Sunday to turn down the temperature by calling for his supporters to stop reacting violently to protesters.

During an interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Tapper noted that every presidential candidate had accused Trump of “inciting violence.”

“Do you ever consider whether you should be trying to lower the temperature?” Tapper asked.

The billionaire candidate, however, defended comments he made about wanting to “punch” protesters, saying that many of them were “crazed.”

“People are getting hurt and people are actually concerned that somebody might get seriously, seriously injured,” Tapper pleaded. “You are not taking down the temperature. You are, in the views of many of your fellow Republicans, making things worse, inciting, encouraging violence. And you’re a leader, sir. You’re the front-runner in the Republican Party.”

“Excuse me, excuse me,” Trump interrupted. “My fellow Republicans are running against me, they are losing big league.”

Trump insisted that “zero” people had been injured at his rallies, ignoring that officersand protesters had reported injuries.

Tapper eventually ran out of time and made one final pitch for Trump to stop fomenting violence.

“I would just ask as a fellow American if you could consider whether or not dialing down the temperature, might be a healthier thing, both for your campaign and for the nation the nation at large,” Tapper said. “But that’s all the time we have.”

“Well, you should report it right because we’ve had no injuries at my events,” Trump shot back. “So, you know, do what you have to do.”

Trump is a liar. This is just more evidence.

I don't understand why he doesn't believe fact when it is presented to him. Rhetoric aside, a reporter tells him about injuries that have been researched and confirmed and he denies it. How would he behave as president? Would he ignore everything he doesn't personally believe without giving a damn about actual fact?

And if his followers will do whatever he wants, like he says, why not ask them to stop being violent? It's not like anyone actually believes Bernie himself is to blame.

He reminds me of a lying child.  "Did you break that glass".  Child looks at broken class on the floor and answers no even though they were caught breaking the glass.  

I don't think he has ever been held to any kind of responsibility for his actions.

Yet according to local news in NC he is considering paying the legal bills for the old man who suckerpunched one of the protesters being removed. Source

It's not that he doesn't believe it. It's that he lies all the time.

He's been getting attacked by both sides of the same dirty coin. It could be worse.

But he said Bernie is to blame therefore that's what his followers will believe. 

This is getting out of hand and I don't see how it can be stopped.
