In an appearance at the Land Investment Expo on Friday, Jan. 23, 2015, real estate magnate and entrepreneur Donald Trump threw shots at potential contenders in the GOP field for president.
Donald Trump is aggressively pushing himself back onto the Iowa stage as presidential material.
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.
Trump said he should be in the White House right now.
“I was leading in every poll. … I regret that I didn’t stay in,” he said in an interview before a private dinner at the Stine Barn in West Des Moines. “I would’ve won the race against (President Barack) Obama. He would’ve been easy. Hillary (Clinton) is tougher to beat than Obama, but Hillary is very beatable.”
Trump said he heard Bush is trying to raise $15 million before he makes up his mind about running.
“If I do it, I’ll be self-funding so that solves that problem. Which is nice,” he said. More at Source
