Donald Trump says President Barack Obama is polling better among women than Mitt Romney because they don't know the facts about how “nasty” the president can be.
 
“He’s somebody who will say some very nasty things,” the real estate billionaire told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren Wednesday. “He is a person that is not the nice person that some people think, and his popularity rating — while high — I think if people knew the facts, the rating would actually be extremely low.
 
“Maybe [women] don’t know him,” Trump said. “Maybe they don’t get what is going on.”
 
Trump, who toyed with running for president himself but is now backing Romney, said he was surprised at how rough the campaign has gotten and suggested that it was even worse than the negative campaign Obama ran against Hillary Clinton in 2008 to claim the Democratic nomination.
 
“This is a very vicious campaign that is being waged against Mitt Romney and the Republicans — vicious,” he said, adding that the Republicans will have to get “very tough” and “fight fire with fire” if they expect to win.
 
“If they don't have to be politically correct, they shouldn't be politically correct," he said, pointing to Vice President Joe Biden's remark Tuesday to a predominantly black Virginia audience that Republican policies would put them “back in chains” of how low the campaign has sunk.
 
“What he said about chains and what other people have said about other things are vicious,” Trump continued. “Have you ever heard language like this?”
 
He called Biden's statement “worse than anything” ever thrown at Clinton in 2008, which he characterized as the "worst, meanest campaign . . . in the annals of our country.”
 
“And this," he said of Biden's comment, “is making it look like baby talk.”
 
Trump said African-Americans should be angry as well, not because of what Biden said but because Obama has failed them in his four years as president.
 
Referring to the high unemployment rate among blacks, which he suggested was actually double the government figure of nearly 14.1 percent, Trump said: “How can somebody, if you are African-American, how you can vote for the man? He's let you down. He has really let you down.”
 
Despite the campaign's negative tone, Trump said he believes it will still be a close race with Romney coming out on top.
 
“I really think that the president has a problem if the [employment and economic] numbers don't improve, and you don't have much time to improve them,” he said.
 
Asked about whether he might consider a position in a Romney administration, Trump said, “I am not looking for a job.”
 
But when pushed by Van Susteren, he said he would make a "great" secretary of commerce.
 
“I really love what I am doing. I run a big business. It is doing great. . . . But if you asked me that question, secretary of commerce. I would do such a great job,” he said.
