Contestant: Trump Would Have Made Good Prez

Thursday, 19 May 2011 10:46 AM

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.

apprentice contestent trump, good, president“Trump’s a smart man, and he’s putting the pieces together,” said Goertz, who appeared on Trump’s show in 2005. “He probably just said, ‘Hey, there’s no way in hell I’m probably going to win this. I’m not going to put myself out there and not win.'"

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.
