Donald Trump Talks About the GOP, His Political Future, and Our Standing in the World
Earlier tonight on my radio program I interviewed Donald Trump. It was his first interview since announcing he would cancel the GOP debate in which he intended to moderate the candidates. Only two candidates had agreed to participate and Mr. Trump recognized that there was a real concern about him running as a third party.
So I asked him if he might and he said he just may run. He’s really concerned about the GOP picking a weak candidate. He would not name any names, but he particularly did not like Jon Huntsman. He took issue with Huntsman’s views on China, which Trump thinks are weak and dangerous.
We actually spent a good bit of time on China. Trump thinks we hold a strong hand against China, but political leaders on all sides are too scared to take on China. He criticized the existing debate structure for not going deep into discussions on China, OPEC, and American manufacturing.
