Trump: The People Of South Carolina Are Strong On Illegal Immigration, Nikki Haley Is "Weak"


Donald Trump responds to criticism from South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.

THOMAS ROBERTS, MSNBC: are you worried you made an enemy of her

DONALD TRUMP: No. I don't worry about that. The people in South Carolina, I know them very well. I've been there all the time. I'm going there. I'm leading in the polls by tremendous numbers. It's one of my strongest states. I love the people there. They're strong. They're tough. They're very strong on illegal immigration and she's weak. So, you know, if you look at that I think i'll do well...

ROBERTS: What do you think [South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's] motives are for going after you so publicly and so strongly?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, she probably figures maybe it's good for her, maybe it's not good for her. Maybe it will be bad for her.

Because people know where I stand. And, you know, you see the numbers. Wven in Iowa if you look at the CNN poll, I'm 33-20 up. We'll see what happens in Iowa.

I have a great relationship with the people of Iowa and I think we'll do well with evangelicals, I'm leading nationwide there. I'm leading with the Tea Party. We're doing well. Look, I'm only doing this to make America great again... We're a country that is doing poorly. Wou can't believe what you heard last night because it was just -- the fact is our economy is terrible.
