Trump Defends His Attacks Against Other Candidates

During an interview on ABC's "This Week," Donald Trump argued that Republicans have not given him a warm welcome since he first entered their 2016 nominating process. He said, “I’m not looking to attack them. I didn’t start the attacks. But I have been attacked and I counter punch. I mean, they attacked me first and I hit them back and maybe even harder than they hit me. But the fact is that I’ve been attacked pretty viciously by some of these guys.”

Trump also said he no longer has to be diplomatic with other public figures now that he's entered politics. He told host Jonathan Karl “I was a businessman all my life. I had to deal with politicians, and I would contribute to them and I would deal with them and certainly I’m not going to say bad things about people because I needed their support to get projects done. Now I’m no longer a businessman. Now I’m somebody who wants to make our country great.” He then discussed Obama by saying “I think he has done a very poor job as president. We don’t have victories anymore. I think that he has set a very low standard.”
