ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump calleed a woman up during a press conference, Monday (March 21) and asks her to speak about her job experience "in front the world." "Well I design, I do wreaths- I do all types of decorations..." said the woman, during a news conference at the luxury hotel Trump is building in place of Washington, DC's Old Post Office. Trump replied, "If we can make a good deal in the salary, she's going to probably have a job." Later asked why he offered the woman a potential job, Trump replied, "She just seemed like a good person to me. Now maybe she won't qualify because you have to quality for- but I think she will. I think she, to me, looked like a good person. I have instincts about people." The former reality TV star, who has struggled to win Republican establishment support, held private talks with a group of Republican lawmakers. In a separate session with the Washington Post editorial board, Trump named some members of his foreign policy team. The team included Walid Phares, who Trump called a counterterrorism expert, George Papadopoulos, an oil and energy consultant, and Joe Schmitz, a former inspector general at the Department of Defense.
