TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “You know, the nice part about running for President this time, as opposed to last time… This time, I’ve done it far greater than I said I was going to do it. So it’s going to be really easy on the debate stage when they hit me with nonsense and I say, ‘Really? But African American unemployment — the best it’s ever been.’ Hispanic, Asian, women, everybody — it’s all the best it’s ever been.
How do you top that in a debate? What are they going to say? ‘Uh, well, it could be better’? No, the easy part — and I say this to all of your political leaders here — if you do a good job, it’s a lot easier that second time. But nobody has done the job that we’ve done.”
