President Trump has grown on Condoleezza Rice, and she wasn’t shy about telling Hannity why

Last October, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice withdrew her support of then-candidate Donald Trump in the wake of the Access Hollywood scandal, but it appears she is slowly coming around.

“Enough! Donald Trump should not be President,” Rice said then on her Facebook account. “He should withdraw. As a Republican, I hope to support someone who has the dignity and stature to run for the highest office in the greatest democracy on earth.”

Relations between the two reportedly warmed when they met in March and Trump took Rice’s advice on picking Rex Tillerson for her former post, but it took a wide-ranging interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night for the former Secretary of State to dish on how she feels about the president now that he’s been in office for several months.

Hannity began the segment by asking Rice about some “nice things” she had been saying about President Trump.

“He is the president of the United States and every American should respect the decision of our democracy,” Rice said. “And the presidency is more than one person and I will do whatever I can to help the occupant of that office succeed.”

When asked if she personally liked the president, Rice said: “I did like him. We had a chance to spend some time together about five weeks ago or so. I found him engaged. He was asking very important questions, getting ready for his meeting with the Chinese. And he also, and I respect this, he saw something in the American public that I just didn’t see. A friend of mine called it the ‘do you hear me now?’ election.”

Trump saw it, Rice contended, and “I respect that.”
