A new Reuters/Ipsos Poll shows business magnate and Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has the support of one-quarter of GOP voters.
Trump told Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy that ABC News had run a “totally false” story that he was rethinking his statement at the debate that he would not rule out a third party candidacy. Reporter: His campaign says that beginning later this week, trump, who has been very light on specifics in this campaign, will begin rolling out detailed policy proposals beginning, David, with immigration, the issue that got this all started. He clarified that he was not pertaining to menstruation.
Trump again insulted women by inferring Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle was the motivating factor in asking him tough questions about his lengthy record of offensive comments toward women. One of the questions thrown to him was about Trump insulting women as “fat pigs and dogs”.
Trump’s appeal is also based on his appearance as an anti-establishment candidate who is not beholden to any large donors and willing to take on those is power, even FOX News as reflected in his dispute with Kelly.
“Only Rosie O’Donnell“, Trump interrupted to cheers, reigniting his public feud with the comic.
He’s denied that the comment was about her period, saying only a “deviant” mind would make that connection, and that he was actually referencing that time-honoured phrase: “blood pouring out of their eyes”.
“If it weren’t for me, the world illegal immigrant wouldn’t be spoken right now”, said Trump. “I’m a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win“, Trump declared Tuesday.
“Border patrol people that I deal with, that I talk to, they say this is what’s happening’ because our leaders are stupid”.
“Sure. You saw my income, my income is $400M a year”, Trump responded, according to highlights released by the network.
“Why should I spend my time on the negative side of the street?” “But I don’t think that will happen quickly, because everybody has enough money to stay on their feet awhile”. “He’s better on pay quality for women than Hillary Clinton….”
With the national media focused on Donald Trump, though, other Republican candidates seem eager to turn the attention across the aisle.
