Disgraced New York Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner asked Donald Trump for money “just before he pressed the wrong button on his computer,” the real estate tycoon and reality TV star tells The New York Post

“I have known Anthony over the years, but I have never liked him,” Trump told the Post. “What he did was ridiculous, suicidal, and as for him running for mayor, I think New York has bigger problems.”
About two weeks before Weiner was involved in a sex scandal, in which he admitted to sending lewd photos of himself to women over the Internet, he asked Trump for help in fundraising, Trump said.
“I was noncommittal. He called me on numerous occasions for money. But it was unlikely I would ever do it.”
Trump said he is friendly with several of the candidates running for mayor of New York, and will weigh his options over the next few months as to who he will support.
