Trump thinks Michelle Obama's speech was 'pretty good'

CBS4's Jim DeFede interviewed Donald Trump today in advance of his Wednesday speech at Trump National Doral golf resort.

The full interview will air at 11 p.m. Here is a snippet that posted so far: 

DeFede: Give me your impressions of the democratic convention so far and whole Debbie Wasserman Schultz scandal?

Trump: I think she was disastrous.  It turned out she was a disaster. I've been saying that for a long time. Not a good person and got caught and said a lot of bad things and it was very sad. And I think as far as the convention it's not played out yet. We are going to have to see what happens with Bernie Sanders. I think Bernie got very tired. He wants to go home. He wants to go to sleep. He wants to go to bed. He wants to get out. So it looks like he got tired and probably the people will sort of go home. I think we are going to get a lot of the Sanders people because of my views on trade because we are being so ripped off on trade and jobs. I think we are going to do very well with the Bernie Sanders people.

DeFede: Michelle Obama went after you on the first night without ever invoking your name. What did you think about a First Lady making a political speech like that?

Trump: I'm not that surprised. Look she did her thing and I thought it was fine. I thought her speech was ok. I thought it was pretty good. I really didn't pay much attention to it.

Here is some background about what Trump has said about trade from PolitiFact.
