Trump Once Wrote Hillary Clinton Would Be ‘Great President’
Donald Trump may be hard on Hillary Clinton at the moment, but in 2008, he supported her and called her a potential “great president.”
BuzzFeed dug into comments made by the billionaire in 2008.
“Hillary Clinton said she’d consider naming Barack Obama as her vice-president when she gets the nomination, but she’s nowhere near a shoo-in,” the real estate mogul wrote about the tight 2008 Democratic primary between Clinton and then-Illinois Sen. Obama.
The Hill reports:
It’s far from the first time Trump, who is now lambasting Hillary and Bill Clinton as he seeks the GOP presidential nomination, has spoken positively of the former first couple.
Another blog post from 2008 has previously surfaced, where Trump praised Clinton for being “smart, tough and a very nice person.” He also lauded Bill Clinton, calling him a “great President.”
“Hillary was roughed up by the media, and it was a tough campaign for her, but she’s a great trouper,” Trump wrote in 2008. “Her history is far from being over.”
Trump has stepped up his attacks on Clinton, including criticism of Bill Clinton’s past infidelities.
She’s hit back that the real estate mogul has a “penchant for sexism” after he mocked Clinton for using the bathroom during the Democratic debate and said she “got schlonged” by Obama in the 2008 primary.
