Billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump says he likes what Sen. Ted Cruz and other members of the tea party are doing as they try to rein in the debt ceiling and work out a budget deal.

In an interview Thursday night, CNN's Piers Morgan asked Trump what he would do if he were in House Speaker John Boehner's shoes, with "40 people in his party effectively holding the entire country to ransom."

"I'm a believer in the tea party because what they want is what's really right for this country," Trump responded. Members of the GOP tea party caucus want something done about the debt and other issues, he said.

"Our country is in a freefall," Trump said. "These are great American people. Sometimes severe, sometimes not so severe, but they do want what's good for the country."

Urgent: Do You Support Sen. Ted Cruz's Efforts to Defund Obamacare? Vote Here.

Trump said that Boehner, Obama, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid all have the country's best interests at heart, but have different beliefs on how to achieve it. And one of Obama's problems is that he's not a natural deal-maker.

America must have better leadership, he said, to ever improve.

"If we don't have the right leadership we will never have a great economy again," Trump said. "And we frankly will not be a great country again."
