Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared on Sunday news yet again, sitting down for an interview with NBC‘s Chuck Todd, the host of Meet the Press. Here are six takeaways from Trump’s interview.
1. Trump doesn’t know if he’s given money to Planned Parenthood.
“I don’t know… But it’s possible. I give to so many, Chuck. I give to so many organizations over the years. Hundreds of millions of dollars. And so I don’t know. I don’t think so. But it’s possible somewhere…”
2. Trump doesn’t want to talk about Obama’s birth certificate anymore.
“Well, I don’t like talking about it anymore. Because honestly I have my own feelings. I think he should have taken the $5 million. I don’t know why he spent $4 million in legal fees to keep his records, you know, away. Nobody’s seen his records. I don’t know. Maybe the hackers. Maybe the hackers have his records. No, I mean, his college records. I mean, he spent $4 million in legal fees to make sure that nobody ever saw [them].”
3. Trump thinks Jeb Bush’s campaign funding is suspect.
“Look, when Jeb Bush raises $114 million, I know those people that gave him the money. I used to be one of them. I mean, I gave to everybody, okay? I know those people. He’s like a puppet for those people. He’s a puppet. Those people, they’ll take negative ads on me and on other people because they want him in there because they’re going to control Jeb Bush.”
4. Trump believes Democrats thinks he’s a “super genius.”
“Look, if I were a liberal Democrat, people would say I’m the super genius of all time. The super genius of all time. If you’re a conservative Republican, you’ve got to fight for your life. It’s really an amazing thing.”
5. Trump thinks Saudi Arabia wouldn’t exist without us.
“Saudi Arabia makes a billion dollars a day, okay? They make a billion dollars a day. Saudi Arabia, if it weren’t for us, they wouldn’t be there. They wouldn’t exist. They should pay us. It’s like Kuwait. When Kuwait had the problem with Saddam Hussein, like, the ultimate problem, they were taken over, we go in. We fight.”
6. Trump thinks Obama’s Iran deal will give the country nuclear weapons (spoiler: Its not).
“They are going to have nuclear weapons. They are going to take over parts of the world that you wouldn’t believe. And I think it’s going to lead to nuclear holocaust. And I will say this. The people that negotiated that deal, namely Kerry and his friends, are incompetent.”
