Should Donald Trump win the Republican nomination for president, he would most likely face Democrat Hillary Clinton in the general election. So which president of the last four presidents does he most admire? Hillary Clinton's husband, Bill Clinton.
In a pretaped interview set to air Thursday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe,"
Trump was asked whom he most admired of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush or Barack Obama.
"Well, I would say Clinton probably. I would have to say Clinton," Trump told co-host Mark Halperin.
"There was a little spirit," Trump explained of his choice. "Frankly, had he not met Monica — had he not met Paula — had he not met various and sundry semi-beautiful women, he would’ve had a much better deal going.
"He was destroyed by that," Trump said. "He was really hurt by that, but he’s Teflon."

Trump has called Hillary Clinton a formidable opponent, and on Tuesday told a crowd in Iowa, "If you don't have the right candidate, you're not going to beat Hillary," The Des Moines Register reported.
"You know, she's playing the woman card really big," he said. "I watched her the other day and all she would talk about was, 'Women! Women! I'm a woman! I'm going to be the youngest woman in the White House! I'm not going to have white hair, I'm going to dye my hair blonde!' … She could be beaten. She's got a lot of bad things happening."
