Donald Trump says he'll "try" not to trash-talk fellow Republicans, and stick to the late President Ronald Reagan's so-called 11th Commandment.
In an interview with Pat Robertson aired Tuesday on the "The 700 Club,"
the GOP presumptive GOP nominee, however, didn't make any promises.
The remarks start at about the 17:45-minute mark of the video in the link.
"When I ran in '88 I was under … the 11th Commandment put out by Ronald Reagan, 'thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican,'" the veteran televangelist tells Trump. "These are all going to be your troops."
"Well, I’m going to try. I’m going to try," Trump responded, as Robertson laughed, remarking it was "tough for you."
"With you, I cannot tell a lie, right? I cannot tell a lie. I'd feel very guilty," Trump added.
"But I will say this — look, you know, I’ve gotten more votes than anybody in the history of the Republican primaries, and I had 17 people," Trump said. "You know, others had two or three people, so it is much easier to get. Got almost 14 million votes in the primary system, which is a record. Won 37 states. We’ve had tremendous support, but every once in a while you have somebody who doesn't want to support."
"I can't promise you that I’ll be treating that person really, really well, but I will try," Trump added. "I’ll think about you every time, OK?"
