    TRANSCRIPT:

    Look, when I speak, I make the question into an answer. Meaning, not to distinguish suffering for one people over the other. All people who need help, we should be there to give it. In other words, political considerations are important to any government, but every person who is in government is also a human being, an individual human being. A human being for himself or herself, and that human being should act out of moral consideration. And they should be, let's say, somebody always in the government, whatever the situation, should say, "Mr. President, or my dear fellow cabinet members, got to put morality in all that."
