Trump: ‘I Will Ask Whether or Not You Think I Will Someday Be on Mt. Rushmore’

‘The fake news media will say ... “Trump thinks he should be on Mount Rushmore”‘


TRUMP: "Every single president on mount Rushmore -- now, here's what I do. I would ask whether or not you think I will someday be on mount Rushmore but -- no."
[Cheers and applause]
TRUMP: "But here is the problem. If I did it joking, totally joking, having fun, the fake news media it will say, he believes he should be on mount Rushmore. So I won't say it, okay? But every president -- they'll say it anyway, you watch tomorrow. "Trump thinks he should be on mount Rushmore." Isn't that terrible? What a group. What a dishonest group of people, I'll tell you. And you know, the funny thing is, you would think they would want to see our country be great again. He would really think so. But they don't. Someday they'll explain it to me why. Every president on mount Rushmore believed in protecting American industry. We have to protect our industry."
