Trump is “angry”
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION).
STORY: Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in Iowa said he is hopeful about winning the Iowa caucuses — but told a rally at the Living History Farms visiting Center in Urbandale that he is “angry.”
“We are winning in Iowa,” he said. “And I really want to win Iowa, People say,”oh just say you want to do well in Iowa, that way in the end if you come in second or third, or fourth– I want to win Iowa.”
He also took aim at the Obama Administration after Iran freed 10 U.S. sailors on Wednesday, a day after detaining them aboard two U.S. Navy patrol boats in the Gulf.
“Does everyone agree? I mean some people said ‘well they let them out, I thought that was humiliating fir the United States to have these people on their knees with their hands up and guns at their head and then we have Kerry saying ‘wasn’t it wonderful that they let them go. I think it was disgraceful,” Trump said.
He also said he was angry. “I am angry. I am angry at stupidity, I’, angry at at incompetence, I’m angry when China’s making 500 billion dollars a year and sucking our jobs and sucking our money out of our country….I am angry about a lot of things, and I won’t be angry for long because once we straighten it out I am a very happy person.”
Following the Thursday night Republican debate a Google snap poll showed viewers believed Trump, who in the most recent debates was at times less engaged, won the night with 37.3 percent to Cruz’s 26.6 percent and Rubio’s 12.1 percent.
