D'Amato Slams 'Unscrupulous' Media, Says Trump Will Devote Self to Making US Better - Updated

"Donald Trump is going to devote himself to making America a better place," said former New York Sen. Al D'Amato, who praised the president-elect for his tenacity.

"I never thought [Trump] was serious, but he worked and worked and never gave up, notwithstanding the pounding that he took from the media, the unfair characterization of him, the media which worked day and night against him … They were just totally unscrupulous in the way they campaigned openly," D'Amato told "The Cats Roundtable" Sunday radio show hosted by John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York.

"I think the American public is angry, and they have every right to be at Washington," D'Amato said, praising many of Trump's ideas to fix the country, including actively fighting against illegal immigration, explaining that he could never understand why the United States shouldn't protect its borders.

Regarding Trump's economic plans, D'Amato said that "Small businesses are being killed by overregulation and over-taxation, and when you reduce the tax rate on corporations and small businesses, guess what, they make more profits, they hire more people, they become more competitive. If we want to stop jobs from moving abroad, companies from moving abroad, you got to lower the tax rate, it's not so you can make the rich richer."

When asked about cabinet appointments, the former senator cited former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as great candidates, saying, "Rudy will put his country first and would be a great attorney general," while Gingrich "could be an absolutely stalwart in just about any position you name, [including] secretary of state."

D’Amato also slammed the attitudes of those unwilling to accept the outcome of the elections, saying that the dean of St. John’s Law School told students, “‘If you voted for Donald Trump, you don’t belong here.”

But Michael A. Simons, dean of the St. John’s School of Law, said in a statement to Newsmax that he never made any such statement.

"The purported 'quote' from Mr. D’Amato, who cited an unnamed student, is simply not true and never happened," Simons said. "Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, it was apparent that our nation was deeply divided. I moderated a student forum on November 9, 2016 to talk about what those divisions mean for us—as citizens, as future lawyers, and as members of the St. John’s Law community — and what we can do to help heal those divisions going forward. St. John’s School of Law has a 90-year history as one of the most inclusive law schools in New York and the country."
