Longtime Donald Trump advisor and political consultant Roger Stone has been formally banned (for now) from appearing on cable networks CNN and MSBNC after a series of offensive tweets about other political experts who regularly appear on air. He addressed those tweets, and his belief that Trump will be victorious in the November presidential election, in an interview with On Point host Tom Ashbrook.

"I would have to admit that calling Roland Martin a 'fat negro' was a two-martini tweet, and I regret that," Stone said. "As for my criticism of Ana Narvarro not being qualified...I don't understand why she's there, given her lack of qualifications."

But Stone was certain his longtime friend — and former employer —  presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would come out on top in the quickly approaching November presidential election.

"Trump is going to be the next president of the United States in one of the most bruising and brutal campaigns in American history," Stone said.

Listen to the full interview with Stone above.

This segment aired on June 6, 2016.
