Donald Trump has some very clear advice for Mitt Romney on how to handle Wednesday night’s debate against President Barack Obama: “I think he has to be very tough, very sharp, very smart — which he is.”
“I think he has really got to put a very strong foot forward, because they are playing a dirty game of pool,” the real estate billionaire told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night.
The Obama camp has been nasty toward Romney, launching unfair attacks, “so I think he has to be very, very tough — very forthright,” Trump said.
When it comes to the issues, Romney “has to talk about jobs and the economy,” he said. “He has to talk about what China is doing to us. He has to talk about what OPEC is doing to us, and gasoline prices, and other things. That should be the focus.”
And if Obama brings up the issue of Romney’s tax returns, the Republican nominee should ask for the president’s college records and applications, Trump said.
“He is supposed to be the transparent president — he is the least transparent president in the history this country,” Trump said, adding if Obama knew he was going to have to provide this information: “I think he would never mention the word tax return again.”
“But they have gone after Mitt Romney on tax returns. And if it were me, I would say: ‘I will give all the returns you want — let's see your passport records, your college records, and let's see your college applications,’” Trump said. “That would be one of the great trades ever.”
