SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Utah) – While Mitt Romney was in town throwing punches at the GOP front-runner Donald Trump, Trump was in Portland, Maine with a few jabs of his own.
Donald Trump feels like he is getting hit from all sides. The latest attacks from one-time friend Mitt Romney.
“He totally had a right to turn,” said Trump. “Cause nobody could have been nastier than me in getting him not to run by saying he is a choke artist.”
Trump said he aided to Romney’s decision not to run for president in 2016.
“I love our country too much. If he would have run and even if he would have won, it would have been bad. He doesn’t have what it takes to be president,” the presidential candidate added.
Trump recalls Romney’s 2012 presidential run when he endorsed him and threw fundraisers for the two-time candidate.
“You can see how loyal he is, he was begging for my endorsement,” said Trump. “I could have said Mitt drop to you knees, he would have dropped to his knees.”
Trump said the attacks on his water company, magazine are unwarranted. When it comes to Trump University he says, he won’t settle.
“Any business man or business woman has lawsuits. People sue to get their money back. They sue for this they sue for that, they sue for a million different reasons,” said Trump.
Trump said his success comes from business.
“They don’t want to talk about 92-story buildings all over the place. They don’t want to talk about the Bank of America building in San Francisco, 1290 Avenue of the Americas,” he said. “They don’t want to talk about the west side railroad yards where I built the city on the west side of Manhattan.”
Trump said he is ready to lead America and make it great again just like he has done all over the world.
