Trump: ‘I’m So Stable You Wouldn’t Believe It’

Donald Trump dismissed his critics on Thursday when he called himself stable.

“I’m a very stable person,” he said in an interview with Time published Thursday. “I’m so stable you wouldn’t believe it.

“We need a strong tone and a compassionate tone, and I can do both, plus what’s up here,” Trump added, pointing at his temple. “I think temperament is my strength, my greatest strength.

“I’m not a fast trigger. I’m the exact opposite of a fast trigger, but nobody’s going to push us around. I think my ideas are really good.”

The Hill reports:

Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, said he also disagrees with the idea that he is a political novice.

“It’s not like I’ve not been in politics, but just not on this side of the ledger,” he said. “I’ve always rated experience far less than capability. When people ask me, ‘Would you rather have experience or talent?’ I’ll take talent every time. That’s not to knock experience, and I think I have both.”

Trump, who defeated 16 rivals in the Republican presidential primary, also said he cannot explain his political success so far.

“Why is it? Because — I don’t know. It’s just different,” he said. “It’s like, why is it that Jack Nicklaus won so many golf tournaments? Right?

“Why is it that Babe Ruth could hit more home runs than all the teams in the American League?” Trump continued.
