ABERDEEN, Scotland - The Donald to W: "You stink."
Donald Trump trashed President Bush Tuesday as a "terrible" President who has destroyed the world economy - but insisted the global crunch wouldn't stall his planned $2 billion golf resort.
"We have a President in the United States who's terrible. He stinks," Trump said.
Trump said he can't wait to see Bush head back to Texas after the November election is done.
"Hopefully, we'll have a good, new President, whoever he is," Trump said.
He praised both major party candidates - Barack Obama, the presumptive Democratic nominee and John McCain, his Republican counterpart.
"[Obama] has done an amazing job," Trump said. "He came from nowhere."
The tycoon called McCain "a friend of mine" who made a stunning political comeback.
Either will be better than Bush, said Trump.
Trump, who was in Scotland on personal business and not for U.S. politics, told a hearing on his planned megaresort that the economic climate has dramatically worsened since he first started buying land north of Aberdeen for the project.
Trump openly admits his harsh criticism of Bush, he has never tried to duck this.
Trump is a sideshow freak on the political spectrum. This is all being done to enrich himself. Stop covering this 2 time bankruptcy, no credit BS artist. He rips people off and blows so much hot air the ice caps will actually melt. Forget him, his hair, his TV show and his ridiculous proclamations. He is not serious, except for enriching himself.
Trump’s right. The Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama administration has destroyed 200 years of American exceptionalism and prosperity. It is literally all gone, flushed down a toilet to create and sustain two distinct looter classes—the welfare poor and the socialist rich. This nation was created by and for the free individual citizen and they’ve created a system where a self-sufficient person who earns everything he has is just a sucker. If you’re rich, there’s a gravy train to ride and if you are lazy, there’s another gravy train.
The rest of us are just gravy.
You should see some of the Trump threads on Free Republic. I am stunned at how people want this guy as President. It is scary and I can’t believe it. We are in trouble if people find Trump conservative.
He should have had enough information by June 2008. In February, when McCain won the Republican nomination, I was saying McCain should have been telling Democrats pick either candidate, theres no difference.I could tell the difference in February(and probably long before that), why couldnt Trump?
Well, seems O’Reilly is giving him 3 weeks to get back to him on the abortion issue, does a conservative really has to ponder that one? Or is it fiscal/conservative and social/liberal?
Also, if you look at Trump's praise for Obama ("He came from nowhere") it's not like he supported his policies. Just that he became popular so fast from "nowhere".
If this is true, is there any logic for this Trump donation?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has received the fourth-largest amount of Trump’s contributions, including $4,800 in the successful 2010 campaign against Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle.
I think all were equally bad in their own way.
Glad you are so tuned into the inner workings of the Trump’s mind and motivations—I assume you feel he has no authentic interest in getting to the bottom of the con man Obama’s manufactured persona (by the way,good morning, Obot).
Donald Trump gives opinionated blowhards everywhere a bad name . . . . .
I tend to agree. He’s like Morton Downey Jr. right now.
I remember that ‘miss me yet’ of Bush going around long before they put up the billboard, yes, Bush deserved criticism, but was he going to be worse than the democrat candidate?
How about the praise for Obama and McCain? He is a blowhard...and certainly not a conservative.
More evidence that he’s simply trying to split the conservative vote in the primary.
GW Bush was a disappointment. He was strong out of the gates, but finished a distant third or fourth.
“Donald Trump bashes President Bush”
I’m no huge fan of Trump, but there was a lot about Bush to bash in my opinion.
“Flying Monkey Alert”
So amazing, this orchestrated push to discredit Trump by “freepers” using sensitive conservative hot buttons JUST as Trump is pulling back the veil on Obama.
You know, it stinks to high heaven ol ‘Son”.
Methinks you are waging a counter-intuitive ops to throw folks off Obama’s stinkin’ scent by going after Trump.
Guess you guys have once again been dispatched (here we go, so predictable) web-wide to disguise yourselves and attack any Obama detractors that pose real threats to the con man.
You won’t get ahead of it this time.
