Former GE CEO Jack Welch says on AC360: "I've got a tweet out there that I stand by."
CNN's Chief Business Correspondent Ali Velshi joins the conversation and says to Welch.."You gotta take this opportunity, while everyone is listening to you, to actually say 'Yes Anderson I'm taking that tweet back'..."
Velshi pushes Welch to send out a new tweet that would explain he "was exaggerating." Welch replies.."I should have had a question mark Ali at the back of it, let's face it ok?"
When Velshi asks about the conspiracy part of the tweet which stated 'these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers'
Welch says.. "...these numbers are implausible" and later adds.."I'm not a Romney surrogate, I'm not in the campaign, I've never talked to the campaign... I just believe this number should not determine the outcome of the Presidential election."
