Real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump appeared on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday night, and revealed to host Bill O’Reilly exactly who he’d like to see as the next President of the United States.
Real Clear Politics captured the exchange and, to possibly no one’s surprise, The Donald only needs to look in the mirror to see his favorite candidate:
BILL O’REILLY: Now, who do you like so far in the Republican sweepstakes? You’re not in there yet?
DONALD TRUMP: I think Donald Trump. I think Donald Trump is the best by far.
O’REILLY: You are not in there.
TRUMP: No. I haven’t announced. I haven’t done that yet, no. I feel very strongly about a guy named Donald Trump.
O’REILLY: So if you get in there, are you going to attack the other Republicans? Are you going to call them…?
TRUMP: I don’t know. I’m going to say that look I built a great empire in a very short period of time. I have done a lot of great things. I guarantee you one thing when you look at what’s happening in this country that wouldn’t be happening anymore.
China would not be ripping us off. You look at what’s going on where a friend of mine, a big contractor just ordered Komatsu tractors because Japan is back in the game. They just devalued the hell out of their currency. So instead of buying Caterpillar he is buying Komatsu tractors.
That stuff wouldn’t be happening if I were there. I will guarantee you that.
Trump has flirted with the idea of running for President for several years now, and always backs out when discussions of suspending his television show and disclosing his financial history crop up.
