After being mocked by President Barack Obama and comedian Seth Meyers at the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night, Donald Trump bounced back with an interview expressing his opposition to cuts in Medicare and Social Security.

Donald Trump, Correspondents DinnerCalling senior citizens the “lifeblood of this country,” Trump told The New York Times on Sunday that as president, he would do nothing to curtail benefits for seniors.

While not criticizing the deficit spending plan proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan, Trump did find fault with its timing, saying Ryan “shouldn’t have put forth such an early plan. Anybody who touches Medicare is in tremendous trouble politically. We, the Republicans, have an election to win.”

Trump told The Times that, if he does decide to run for president, he would turn over control of his company to three of his children.

As for the Saturday night roast, Trump declared: “Seth Meyers has no talent. He fell totally flat.”
