Trump Slams Karl Rove

Monday, 18 Apr 2011 01:05 PM

President George W. Bush and his key political adviser Karl Rove are responsible for the election of President Barack Obama, potential GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump contended during an appearance on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. Trump was responding to comments Rove made about his own allegations questioning the legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate.

Rove, in an appearance on another Fox show, Greta Van Susteren’s “On The Record,” said Trump’s embrace of the issue has made him a “joke candidate.”

“Let him go ahead and announce for election on the ‘The Apprentice,’” Rove said. “The American people are not going to be hiring him and certainly the Republicans are not going to be hiring him in the Republican primary.”

Shooting back, the real estate mogul maintained there were real questions about Obama’s birth and added that he was “very upset with Bush because Bush had a really a bad period of time and he gave us Obama and Karl Rove was Bush.”

“I don’t expect that he’s going to love me, but Bush gave us Obama,” Trump said. “In all fairness to John McCain and Sarah Palin, nobody could have won. You could have brought back Abraham Lincoln, he couldn’t have beaten Obama at that time, because of what Karl and Bush had done.”
