GOP nominee Donald Trump's debate performance Sunday night proves him to be a fighter not just for his campaign, but for the United States, his deputy campaign manager David Bossie, said Monday.
"Hillary Clinton showed America a lot about herself last night," Bossie, also the president and chairman of the conservative advocacy group Citizens United, told Fox News' Martha MacCallum on the "America's Newsroom" program. "She was meandering in her answers. She didn't have clear, concise answers on her policy objectives. When Donald Trump brought forward these litany of her assaults on women, she really could not answer them. So she had to pivot away to things far afield from the question."
And Trump went into the debate "single handedly" and won the debate," said Bossie.
"It was David vs. Goliath, taking on the media," said Bossie. "It was a tremendous night for Donald Trump."
In addition, Bossie said, Trump apologized for the words caught on a hot mic tape released on Friday, and he was a "contrite man last night."
"I think he is now going to look forward into the future of this campaign," said Bossie. "I think that is one of the reasons that he is the nominee and one of the reasons he has resonated with the American people. Why the American people are — have created this army of Trump. Really, this massive groundswell of folks, I think much like what happened in Europe with the "Brexit" vote, there will be underlying issue here under the polls."
There will likely be even more tapes released, said MacCallum, but Bossie said Trump has pointed out that the person being heard in the past is not who he is now.
"Over the last 16 months, 18 months he has been a changed man," said Bossie. "As he has gone around the country and met people, traveled and campaigned across this great country of ours. He is just looking forward to talking about the issues. And I think that is really, if he is able to keep it on the issues."
Trump, meanwhile, will have tens of thousands of people attending "enormous rallies" in Pennsylvania on Monday, the campaign is not worried about the "low level" fight Clinton has brought in, said Bossie.
"We'll handle it and kick these things away one at a time," said Bossie. "It is not a problem for us. We'll talk about the issues today."
