A top adviser to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said a concession speech by the losing candidate in November should focus on bringing the nation back together.
“I think whoever loses, I think the concession speech is extremely important. You know right now as a country we’re very fractured,” Michael Cohen, Trump adviser and special counsel, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room” on Tuesday. “I truly hope that whoever loses, that the concession speech is something that will help to bring America back together as a people.”

His comments came after defending Trump’s claims that the election system is rigged, fraught with media bias and voter fraud.
Cohen pointed to reports of supporters of both the Republican and Democratic nominees being assaulted, even referring to the statue of a naked Hillary Clinton in New York that caused a commotion Tuesday.
“It’s not right. It’s disrespectful,” he said. “Just because you have the right to do it, doesn’t make it right.”
Cohen believes the concession speech by the losing candidate on Election Day, even if it is Trump, should have a greater goal in mind.
“You know, we’re much better than that as a country,” he said, “and we’re much better than that as a people.”
