Trump doesn’t regret McCain comments because ‘my poll numbers went up’
All that matters is polls and applause, not integrity, or so indicated Donald Trump when interviewed by Don Imus.
Appearing on the Imus in the Morning, Trump was asked if he would apologize to veterans, as McCain has recently requested.
“Well I’ve actually done that, Don,” Trump replied. “You know frankly, I like John McCain, and John McCain is a hero. Also, heroes are people that are, you know, whether they get caught or don’t get caught — they’re all heroes as far as I’m concerned. And that’s the way it should be.”
“So do you regret saying that?” asked Imus.
“I don’t, you know — I like not to regret anything,” Trump said. “You do things and you say things. And what I said, frankly, is what I said. And some people like what I said, if you want to know the truth. There are many people that like what I said. You know after I said that, my poll numbers went up seven points.”
