Donald Trump responds to Mitt Romney, who today called him a "phony" and a "fraud."
"Let me put it very plainly: If we Republicans choose Donald Trump, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished," Romney said on Thursday in a speech solely set up to attack Donald Trump.
TRUMP: So with Mitt, I just wanted to say, it was very nasty. I did help him. I thought he was a better person than that. I actually had two fundraisers for him...
I did a great job, they couldn't have cared less about him. In fact, a lot of people came up to me and said they were worried about him being a stiff. I said, no, he'll be fine. He's a stiff, I should have listened to the guy. But we had a fundraiser, and it was so big, and it was raining out. I won't forget this one.
It was really raining, it was a miserable miserable day, and the people came in... hundreds of people... And because everybody's shoes were wet, I ruined my carpet, this carpet was wiped out. And nobody thanked me for the carpet. Maybe I can send Mitt a bill for carpet ruined.
But when you help somebody... I made six robocalls, he asked me to make robocalls for him. Every single place I made the robocall, he won... six different places.
So you help somebody, and then they turn...
If he would have run [in 2016], and even if he would have won, it would have been bad, it would have been bad. He doesn't have what it takes to be president.
