President Donald Trump just offered rare praises for Hillary Clinton, admitting he would rather go up against former Vice President Joe Biden than face Clinton again.
Trump said to NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that he is not ready to lose the 2020 election.
When asked by Chuck Todd if he was, he said: “Probably not. Probably not.”
He added: “It would be much better, it would be much better if I said, ‘Yeah.’ It would be much easier for me to say, ‘Oh yes.’ No I’m probably not too prepared to lose. I don’t like losing. I haven’t lost very much in my life.”
The US president also said he did not completely trust the results of the popular vote during the 2016 elections. “There were a lot of votes cast that I don’t believe,” he expressed.
He also praised Hillary Clinton, saying: “I actually think that Hillary Clinton was a great candidate. She was very smart. She was very tough. She was ruthless and vicious.”
Todd then asked: “You’d rather run against her again, wouldn’t you?”
“No,” Trump answered. “No. I would actually rather run against Biden. I think that would be my preference.”
He added: “Sleepy Joe. He’s sleepy. She was not sleepy.
“Let me just tell you something, the Electoral College is tougher for a Republican to win than the popular vote. At least me. I feel that I go to three places. I went to 19 or 21 states. I went to Maine four times because I wanted to get one. And I did get it. And that’s the beauty of the electoral college.”
Trump also insisted that his administration is doing a ‘fantastic’ job amid reports of children being separated from their families.
“President Obama built the cages. Remember when they said that I built them?” he said.
Todd told him: “But let’s not punish the kids more.”
“You’re right,” Trump replied. “And this has been happening long before I got there. What we’ve done is we’ve created, we’ve, we’ve ended separation. You know, under President Obama you had separation. I was the one that ended it.”
