Date Produced
Black and white outtakes of a press conference with Harry Truman in which he reads out a statement endorsing Senator Stuart Symington as the Democratic presidential nominee in 1960.
He also discusses an upcoming international summit and says he fears that recent government actions may have tarnished the world’s view of the United States as an honest country. This is possibly in reference to a summit held in Paris between the USA and USSR to discuss the Gary Powers U2 incident. He is asked about the USA resuming nuclear testing and says he believes this is important as it will be an important civilian tool in the future. In his statement about Symington he gives a brief overview of his relationship over the years. Future U.S. president John F. Kennedy is also discussed.
