As you may have heard, Donald Trump has been mulling a run for president, which he says he’ll make a final decision on by June. For the last several months he's been putting his credentials out there (unlike our pussy diplomats who went to school to study "how to be nice," Trump is the "right messenger" to deliver news to people like the Chinese, who fear him and know he means business) and debating the issues (namely China, which we should stop treating to "beautiful five-star meals" and needs to be told “If you don’t stop manipulating your currency, we’re going to put a 25 percent tax on your products that come into the United States"). Over the weekend The Don took on one of his potential competitors for the boss of the US gig, Mitt Romney. Trump says he's more qualified than the former Governor of Massachusetts for a couple of reasons.
1. He's richer than Mitt. "I have a much, much bigger net worth. I mean my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney," Trump told CNN's Candy Crowley.
2. Whereas Romney was basically a plebe at Bain Capital, which he co-founded, concerned with performance reviews and whether or not he's get a big bonus, Trump is a real businessman."Well, Mitt Romney is a basically small-business guy, if you really think about it. He was a hedge fund.** He was a funds guy. He walked away with some money from a very good company that he didn't create. He worked there. He didn't create it," Trump said. Trump claimed that he had created "hundreds of thousands of jobs."
**Hedge fund, private equity firm, same diff, no diff.
