Donald Trump on DNC Speakers: “I Was Going to Hit Them”

HeadlineJul 29, 2016

Donald Trump hasn’t appreciated all the jabs and jokes at his expense during this week’s DNC. At a rally in Davenport, Iowa, Thursday, Trump talked about attacking multiple DNC speakers.

Donald Trump: “I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard. I would have hit them—no, no. I was going to hit them. I was all set. And then I got a call from a highly respected governor: ’How’s it going, Donald?’ I said, 'Well, it's going good, but they’re really saying bad things about me. I’m going to hit them so hard.’ I was going to hit one guy in particular, a very little guy. I was going to hit this guy so hard, his head would spin, he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”
