Donald Trump is calling on fellow GOP candidates who are polling poorly to drop out of the 2016 presidential race.
“There are too many people… If a person’s been campaigning for four or five months and they’re at zero or one or two percent, they should get out,” Trump said at a news conference on Tuesday promoting his new book, “Crippled America.”
The real estate developer initially declined to name which candidates he believes should throw in the towel, but told ABC on Tuesday morning that Jeb Bush should drop out of the race because he had “no chance” to win the nomination.
Other candidates who fall into that category, according to latest polls, are South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former New York Gov. George Pataki and former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.
“I would like to personally have more time to talk about the problems of the United States and more importantly how to solve the problems because we can solve the problems,” Trump said.
