Trump: Obama Must Be Defeated to Fix Economy

Voters must deny President Barack Obama a second term or the U.S. economy won’t recover, business mogul Donald Trump insists.

Donald Trump, GOP, Obama, nominee“It takes one candidate — one good candidate — and whoever that person is, he or she has to beat Obama, because we can’t go on with this character much longer,” Trump said on Sean Hannity’s radio show today.

Obama has devolved from the hope-and-change image he advanced during the 2008 campaign into a negative force, said Trump, who once had high hopes for Obama.

“The one thing I was really pretty sure he’d be great at would be a cheerleader for the country,” he said. “And he’s not. He’s the opposite. Nobody understands what’s happened with this guy.

“Let’s take a look at the economy,” he said. “I think it’s only going to get worse. We have…incompetent leaders in Washington I’ve never seen — they’re all like children — and our president is terrible.”

Trump, who considered running for the Republican nomination himself before opting not to in May, repeated his promise that he will run as an independent if he isn’t satisfied that the GOP nominee can win.

“I’m going to see who they ultimately put in as the Republican candidate, and if the candidate’s great, I’ll be the happiest man in the world, and if the candidate cannot beat Obama, I would not be happy,” he said.

He would not endorse anyone, nor would he indicate whom he favors. He said he likes the two front-runners, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.

“He’s come from nowhere,” Trump said of former House Speaker Gingrich. “He was gone.”

Romney’s campaign numbers have stayed fairly steady, despite the wacky polls, he said.

“I’ve never seen candidates rise and fall like they do,” he said. “They’re like yo-yos.”
