Trump Slams GOP Field: 'I Don't Have a Lot of Respect for Many of Them'
Donald Trump spoke for 45 minutes this morning, officially declaring himself a candidate for President of the United States and stating that he wants to make America great again.
Trump sat down with Bill O'Reilly for his first post-announcement interview and discussed a variety of topics, including how he would defeat ISIS.
"I would find our proper general. I would find the Patton or the MacArthur," Trump said. "I would hit them so hard your head would spin."
Trump also weighed in on the Iran nuclear talks and asserted that the biggest problem the world faces right now is maniacs controlling nuclear weapons.
"Obama wants to play golf instead of deal with people," Trump said. "Part of being a leader is to get everybody in line."
What would you do about Vladimir Putin? O'Reilly asked.
"I would be willing to bet I would have a great relationship with Putin," Trump said, adding that the Russian president has no respect for Obama. "You can't have everybody hating you. The whole world hates us."
O'Reilly noted that during his announcement, Trump promised to build a wall along the southern border and make Mexico pay for it. "The Factor" host stated that there's no way that they will pay for it.
"You have to let me handle that," Trump said. "They will pay for the wall, and the wall will go up. And Mexico will start behaving. Mexico is not our friend."
As for his fellow GOP presidential candidates, Trump said, "I don't have a lot of respect for many of them."
"They're all talk. They're no action. And they're totally controlled by their donors and by the lobbyists ... If we have another politician, this country's going down."
