Trump: ‘We Don’t Have to Be Nice to President Obama’
GRIFF JENKINS, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: What’s the takeaway Romney needs to leave here to the 30 million-plus maybe taking a first look at Romney?
DONALD TRUMP: I think we have to be not be so politically correct. We’re a country in tremendous trouble. We have to say it like it is. We don’t have to be nice to President Obama. We don’t have to say he’s a wonderful person, because he’s probably not a wonderful person. And, frankly, they cannot be politically correct. They have to say it like it is. This country is in trouble. Our president has done a poor job. We have to put this country back to work.
We have to stop other countries from destroying us, whether it’s China, OPEC nations, or any other — virtually any other country we deal with. You look at the country of Colombia, relatively small trading partner. They use the word “partner.” It’s not a partner. We have a $4 billion deficit with Colombia. That’s a small one. China’s going to be probably close to $400 billion in deficits. We can’t do it. We can’t afford it. Then we go, how do we pay for the deficits? We borrow money from China.
So Mitt Romney gets it. He’s a great businessman. He’ll change things. He’s also got heart. He’s a wonderful person. His wife is a fantastic person. I think it’s going to be an amazing combination.
