Two words you rarely see in the same sentence: Trump and humility.
Donald Trump said he possesses more humility than many would believe during an interview on “Face the Nation” with John Dickerson on Sunday. Dickerson asked Trump about a recent church service he attended in Iowa, during which the sermon focused on humility.
“[There’s] more humility than you would think, believe me,” Trump said. “We’re all the same. I mean, we’re all going to the same place, probably one of two places, you know. But we’re all the same. And I do have, actually, much more humility than a lot of people would think.”
Dickerson then asked Trump if prefers to hide that aspect of his personality. “I’d rather not play my cards,” Trump said. “I want to be unpredictable.”
Trump also addressed decision to skip the most recent GOP Presidential debate, which was hosted by Fox News.
“[Fox News] issued a statement that was an inappropriate statement,” he said. “Now, what happened is, since then, they’ve been very nice. And they tried very much to get me to do the debate. By that time, the event, my counter-event had taken off. And you know, you saw thousands and thousands of people standing outside the building.”
Also during the interview, Trump continued his attacks on GOP rival Sen. Ted Cruz, whom Trump says is not eligible to run for President because he was born in Canada.
“[There] are many lawyers coming out, top constitutional lawyers, that Ted Cruz cannot run for president, Trump said. “He can’t be president, because of the fact he was born in Canada. I think that has a huge effect.”
Trump also hammered away at the Texas Senator for failing to disclose loans from Goldman Sachs and CitiBank to help finance his 2012 campaign.
“But you know, two loans, give me a break, okay?” Trump said. “And he’s supposed to be Robin Hood for everybody. He didn’t disclose them, because he didn’t want to say that he’s dealing with the bankers. Don’t forget, he said he sold his assets.”
