Trump: Jeff Flake’s ‘Poll Numbers in Arizona Are So Low, that He Couldn’t Win’

‘I don’t blame him for leaving, I think he did the right thing for himself’


TRUMP: “Look, he was against me from before he ever knew me. He wrote a book about me before I ever met him, before I ever heard his name. His poll numbers in Arizona are so low that he couldn’t win. And I don’t blame the guy. I think he did the right thing for himself. But if you know, long before he ever knew me, during the campaign, even before the campaign, I mean, he came out with his horrible book. And I said, ‘Who is this guy?’ In fact, I remember the first time I saw him on television, I had not really been — nobody knew me in terms of politics. But the first time I saw him on television, I said, ‘I assume he’s a Democrat. Is he a Democrat?’ They said he’s a Republican. I said, ‘That’s impossible.’ So look, his poll numbers are terrible. He’s done terribly for the great people of Arizona, a state that likes Donald Trump very much, as even you will admit. And he would have never won. In fact, even in the primary, he’s way down in the primary."
