Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson joins Raymond Arroyo with insight on 'The Ingraham Angle.'
Hoover Institution senior fellow and author Victor Davis Hanson told the "Ingraham Angle" Friday that President Trump must respond to America's current unrest with a firm statement along the lines of Abraham Lincoln's message to Congress on July 4, 1861.
"In 1861, Lincoln gave a Fourth of July address to Congress, and it [the situation in America] was divisive, much more divisive than it is now," Hanson explained. "He wanted unity but it's very hard to have unity when a small proportion of the states don't want unity. So what Lincoln did was he said, basically, 'I have bent over backwards, I'm going to protect federal property.'
"'I don't want you to do what you're doing,' [Lincoln said] when he addressed the people who were against unity in the Union, but he reassured the others that he was going to be firm."
