A former runner-up on Donald Trump’s show “The Apprentice” and resident of Iowa, the state that holds the country’s earliest GOP caucus, said Wednesday that she wasn’t surprised by his decision not seek the presidency. Still, Tana Goertz thought he would have made a good president, the Des Moines Register reported Thursday.

Goertz noticed how Trump was the butt of many jokes by President Barack Obama and others during the White House Correspondents’ dinner last month. She said that Trump has thick skin and could take it. But that experience may have shown the strong opposition to his candidacy.

Trump vowed Monday to continue to speak out on key issues, such as the nation’s debt and its ability to compete with China in the global marketplace.

The Iowa Republican Party is waiting to hear if Trump will still headline their annual fundraiser dinner next month.
