Robbins Also Says He'd Love To Coach The President Because 'He Needs It'

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Best-selling author, life coach, philanthropist and entrepreneur Tony Robbins spent 22 Minutes with 1010 WINS’ anchor Brigitte Quinn on Wednesday to discuss his new book, Unshakeable.

When asked if he could spend 22 minutes with anybody or coach somebody, Tony told Brigitte it would be President Trump.

“In terms of coaching, if he was open to it, I’d grab the president because he needs it. Not from my perspective just anybody could coach him right now on these things,” Tony said. “Whether you like him or not I think we all know his style … style is getting in way of substance.”

Brigitte also asked Tony what advice he would hypothetically give to President Trump.

“I’d say shut up … shut up with the Twitter. You know he actually has a lot of ideas that I think many Americans who are against what he does would support if he communicated them differently. If he said, ‘Listen. You know in Syria and places like this, we cannot vet some of these people because there is no government and let me show you what’s happened in France, let me show you what’s happened there.'”

“So instead of  talking about it being Muslims,  saying we’ve just to put in more screening devices or we’re going to do this for them, but when he talks about Muslims  or he talks about Hispanics or he talks about people or he calls somebody an idiot, that … those language patterns get in the way of the substance.”

In terms of interviewing somebody, Tony said, “I’d love to interview Jesus. That’d be a cool thing for 22 minutes.”

Unshakeable is available online and in bookstores. Tony is donating all profits from the book to Feeding America.
