Van Jones said that liberals are privately mad at “every single person who voted” for President Trump during his appearance on “The View” Wednesday.

“Right now I don’t see Democrats looking at the situation and saying, ‘you know what maybe we drew our circle too small.’ I love that we’re hugging LGBT and Muslims and all the people who usually don’t get a hug,” the CNN commentator shared. “Maybe we need to have a bigger hug and include some of those folks in Appalachia.” (RELATED: ‘The View’’ Slams ‘Unstable’’Trump For Threat To ‘Totally Destroy North Korea’)

The ladies disagreed with statement. Joy Behar claimed that the Democrats weren’t mad at those people and asked him to name those who were.

“Listen, there may be some leaders who are,” he added. “Unfortunately…and I have to be honest. I get in trouble because I’m honest. When I listen to liberals when they’re not on TV trying to make it sound good, we’re still in grief. We’re still mad. And we’re not just mad at Trump, who we should be mad at. We’re mad at every single person who voted for Trump, even people who have no jobs….even coal miners who have black lung disease and who are dying.”

“The reason I wrote this book is because I think we don’t understand each other,” he continued. “We talk past each other. We talk about each other more than we talk to each other. So I have wanted to put in my book my best observations, arguments, and resources for how we can find each other again. Because in my conversations with liberals…. it’s almost like, ‘they, those Trump voters, them.’ It’s almost like, ‘I can’t understand how those people could ever do that.’ And I said, in America we don’t have to agree, but we have to try to understand.”
