As the national debate between privacy and security continues to rage, and while Edward Snowden draws both ire and admiration from the American public, this evening Piers Morgan invites renowned television personality and business magnate Donald Trump to share his candid perspective:
"Well, let's start off with Snowden, I think he's bad news," says Trump, of the 29-year-old man recently revealed to be the man who leaked details of the NSA's data-mining program. "I've watched him, and I think he's having a good time. And of all places he goes to Hong Kong for protection. That in itself is a little bit interesting, because that's not a place where actually he should get that kind of protection, but it looks like they're going to protect him. So, I don't know what information he's given them, but it could be very serious. He's a bad guy. I have no doubt that he's a bad guy."
Joining the program on the eve of his 67 birthday, Trump admitted that the line between protecting the country, and digging too deeply into American's personal files, data, and interactions brings about conflict and confusion:
"There's no question about it that this is a mess, no matter how you look at it, it is a mess. Where do they stop? How far do they go? What kind of power do they have?" pondered the man often referred to as simply "The Donald." "A lot of people are very concerned about how far are they going to go, and that's what they're talking about."
Tune in this evening at 9 for the rest of Morgan's interview with the man who once chose not to fire him, instead choosing to crown him the first-ever winner of "The Celebrity Apprentice."
