Trump Insists He Could ‘Get Along With’ Democrats

Despite the divisiveness of his campaign, Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that as president he could cooperate with his political opponents to make deals and pass legislation.

Breitbart News reported that journalist Mike Barnicle asked the front-running contender for this year’s Republican presidential nomination: “So Donald, instinctively, and you are a person of instinct, the candidate of instinct, what is your instinct about who right now on the Democratic side of the aisle, who would you be able to deal with to cut a deal, any kind of a deal? What’s your instinct on that?”

Trump, referring to Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, predicted that he would “be able to get along with” her. “I’ve always had a great relationship with Nancy Pelosi; I’ve never had a problem,” he said. The real-estate tycoon noted that the top Democrat in the Senate, Harry Reid of Nevada, “is going to be gone” because he is not seeking re-election this year.

Trump argued that “it’s important to get along,” adding: “It’s wonderful to say you’re a maverick and you’re going to stand up and close up the country, and all other things, but you have to get somebody to go along with you.”
