Extending Apologies: “I think the responsible thing to say for leadership is how I feel.  I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what happened to the Clintons, and the Obamas, and Mr. Soros, and CNN, and now apparently Vice President Biden.  I’m sorry for America.  We shouldn’t have to go through this.”

Heated Political Rhetoric: “It’s too early to assess blame.  I know that the political rhetoric in this country has been hot on both sides.  Has that contributed to it? I don’t think it’s helped.  We should probably all dial it down a notch.  When you’re civil, it doesn’t mean that you agree with your colleagues; it means that you respect them.  I’m just sorry this happened.  There’s not much else you can say.”

“The rhetoric in our country is hot, and all sides are responsible for it.”

Trust in Our Law Enforcement:  “The FBI is best law enforcement agency in all of human history.  We’ll find this person, but until then it’s all speculation.”
