From the David Rubenstein show on Bloomberg TV.
In the video below, Rubenstein pops the question at the 21:44 minute mark:
Rubenstein: You’re obviously a pretty public figure, you weren’t before. Have you ever thought that maybe you could run for President of the United States? Because… [applause] You’ve seen the President up close. And I think you probably realize you have a lot of skills that maybe he doesn’t have. So have you ever thought…
Cook: I’m not political. Right? I love focusing on the policy stuff. But in the dysfunction in Washington between the legislative branch and so forth, I think that I can make a bigger difference in the world doing what I’m doing. And I appreciate the comment, but… I think… Yeah. You know, President is something [where] you’d love to be President, but not ever run. That should never happen in our country. And so that kind of eliminates me. [Transcribed from Bloomberg’s version.]
Below: The YouTube edit.
My take: Neither the interviewer not the subject mentions Donald Trump by name. Cook can’t even bring himself to say “executive branch.”
