Trump Tells Crowd: ‘My Whole Life I’ve Been Greedy’

Donald Trump admitted Thursday night that he has always been “greedy,” Opposing Views reported.

The Republican presidential front-runner made the remark during a speech at a fundraising rally he organized for injured military veterans. The event took place at the same time as a GOP candidates’ debate, which Trump boycotted because of his dispute with Fox News.

“My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy,” he told the crowd. “I’ve grabbed all the money I can get. I’m so greedy. Now I want to be greedy for the United States; I want to grab all that money.”

Opposing Views, citing The Hill as a source, pointed out that it was not the first time the billionaire real-estate developer had talked about his voracious appetite for money. At an earlier campaign event, he referred to himself as a “greedy person,” adding: “I want to be so greedy for our country. I want to take back money.”

Thursday night, Trump talked about having reported his personal financial information to the Federal Election Commission, a requirement for presidential candidates. “I filed my papers with the federal elections. Everyone said, ‘Well maybe he’s not as rich as we think, so maybe he’ll never file,’ but I filed. In fact, I would have filed if I didn’t run, because I want to brag. I love to brag, all right?” he said.
