RICE: I think it was personal.

"We have a different kind of president, alright?"

"I never thought I'd hear you say that, so thank you very, very much", Rice replied. And when you haven't been in government before, sometimes it looks kind of easy in there, until you get in there.

"And so I do think that when we were finally able to deliver the promise of the Constitution to people like me, little girls growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, when finally my father was able to vote without difficulty, yes, it's the second founding of America", she added. Now, I can tell you that I was with him on many occasions and one particular occasion we went into a room to discuss and his people are sitting on one sofa.

Trump's daughter Tiffany to attend Georgetown Law School

Let's be clear: "he obviously knows what he's doing", she said.
