In a phone interview with Matt Lauer, “It’s a great honor. It means a lot. I have grown up reading Time magazine, it’s a very important magazine. It is a tremendous honor, I am lucky to be on the cover of Time in the past,” Trump said.

 “When you say divided states of America, I didn’t divide them. They’re divided now. I mean there’s a lot of division, and we’re going to put it back together and we’re going to have a country that’s very well healed,” he added.
