Trump Advises Paul to Drop Out of Presidential Race

Donald Trump thinks Sen. Rand Paul should “just go home” because his White House bid is “hopeless,” Newsmax reported.

Paul is running a television ad in New Hampshire and Iowa that shows Trump saying: “I've been around for a long time, and it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than Republicans … I identify more as a Democrat.”

The real-estate mogul responded by blasting the senator with a statement for The Washington Post. He wrote: “Rand Paul is doing so poorly in the polls he has to revert to old footage of me discussing positions I no longer hold. As a world-class businessman who built one of the great companies with some of the most iconic real estate assets in the world, it was my obligation … to maintain a strong relationship with all politicians.”

Trump continued: “I feel sorry for the great people of Kentucky who are being used as a backup to Senator Paul's hopeless attempt to become president of the United States. … (He) has no chance of winning the nomination, and the people of Kentucky should not allow him the privilege of remaining their senator. Rand should save his lobbyists’ and special-interest money and just go quietly home.”
