Donald Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani said if the GOP nominee becomes the nation's president, it would be akin to Andrew Jackson's victory – and represent "the people beating the establishment."
In an interview on MSNBC, a jubilant Giuliani said he was "very happy for the country" even as Trump racked up wins in crucial states across the country.
"If it does happen… this is a real victory for the people," the former mayor declared. "This is like Andrew Jackson's victory. This is the people beating the establishment. And that's how he positioned it from the beginning: The people are rising up against a government they find to be dysfunctional. And yes, it's a defeat for the Democrats, but this is a defeat for some Republicans too."
Asked by MSNBC host Chris Matthews how Trump would unify the country, and ethnic groups that have "felt abused" by Trump, Giuliani said Trump has already begun the process.
"I do think if you listen to his speeches over the last few months, I don't think a speech went by where he doesn't talk about his dedication to truly improving conditions for African Americans, for Hispanics, and for poor people – and for returning the ladder of success that you and I had when we were young, which means a good education and a good job, rather than dependency."
Asked if he would be part of a Trump administration, Giuliani deferred, saying: "I like what I'm doing right now… It's too early for me to think about anything like that. "
