Jones responded that it wasn’t in the president’s character to admit to wrongdoing.

He then pivoted to praise Trump for doing ‘good things’ for the black community.

‘I think it’s really unfortunate because Donald Trump, and I get beat up by liberals every time I say it but I keep saying it, he has done good stuff for the black community,’ Jones said.

‘Black college stuff, I worked with him on criminal stuff, I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formerly incarcerated, in the White House – embraced them, treated them well.

‘There is a side to Donald Trump that I think he does not get enough credit for.’
