Trump to supporters involved in threatening behavior: 'Stop it'

In a 60 Minutes segment that aired Sunday night, Donald Trump told supporters who may be engaged in harassment against minorities to knock it off.

The interview was filmed Friday in New York City. Trump told Lesley Stahl he had not heard of any acts of violence in his name by or against supporters or any cases of his backers using racial slurs against blacks, Latinos, or gays. "I am very surprised to hear that — I hate to hear that," he said.

Asked if he wanted to tell his supporters anything, Trump responded, "I would say don't do it, that's terrible. I'm going to bring this country together." Stahl told him Muslims and Latinos are being harassed, and he interrupted her to say, "I am so saddened to hear that, and I say, stop it. If it, if it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it."
