Trump: I'm the Only One Who Can Beat Hillary
Donald Trump called in to "Fox and Friends" this morning to react to last week's CPAC, where his speech was very well-received.
Trump said he was pleased to see Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) win the CPAC straw poll for the third year in a row and Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) take second place, although he said he's somewhat dubious about the results since so many people were bussed into the event.
"I think the poll isn't so important. I think what was important was the enthusiasm," Trump said. "I think that's much more important than the polls, because the numbers of the polls, I'm not sure that they mean very much."
At CPAC, Trump revealed he is 75 to 80 percent likely to run for president in 2016 and that he believes he's the only possible Republican candidate who can beat Hillary Clinton.
"I'm very, very strongly considering it," Trump said. "As you know, I've retained some tremendous people from New Hampshire, from Iowa, etc., and we have a great team and I'm going to make a decision fairly soon."
"If I run, I think I'll win. I think I'll beat Hillary. I understand Hillary, I know Hillary. I know the weaknesses and the strengths. And I think that I would beat Hillary, and it would be more likely that I would win than somebody else."
Trump added that he doesn't think Clinton has such a clear road to the presidency as many believe.
"I think the election is going to be a very, very tough one, depending on who the Republicans pick ... We have to pick a very conservative, strong, intelligent person that knows what to do and how to make this country great again, because our country is in serious trouble."
