"My personal opinion is Donald Trump has a lot of work to do," said Williams. 

"There are a lot of us that are upset of not just what he did to Ted, what he did to many people. He needs to come in and promise us he’s going to be the president we were hoping for. That he will stand by the Constitution. That he will preserve our values. That he will do the right thing and shut up his ugly mouth and quit saying nasty things about people."
"That hurts our country. The one you’re talking about. That hurts all of us. He’s got to grow up and be presidential. And prove to us that he’s the man we need to get out and yell for and support and that he will present himself well," she added.
