Businessman Donald Trump has endorsed John McCain for president — and says his opponent, Barack Obama, should have chosen Hillary Clinton as his running mate.

“I know John McCain, and John McCain's a great guy, a tremendous guy,” Trump said on CNN’s “Larry King Live” Wednesday night.

“I've known him for a long time. And I'm with him, and I'm with him based on the fact that I have great knowledge of John McCain. Also, this is not the right time for tax increases. And Obama wants to increase your taxes drastically.”

Trump made a donation to Clinton's campaign during the primaries, and also contributed to McCain’s effort in May, Politico reports.

“I don't understand why Hillary wasn't chosen,” Trump told King. “She was really winning. I have a friend that came to this country and was here for the last four weeks of that whole election. He said: ‘How did she lose? She won every primary?’ He didn't understand it.

“The fact is that Obama went limping across the finish line. He should have chosen Hillary. It would have been a much different race, I believe. Right now, it looks to me like McCain is probably winning.”

Trump also said he thinks McCain is “going to be a great president,” and added that he’s “very pessimistic” about the current financial situation.
