NEW YORK CITY, New York — GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said he’s “a job machine” and predicts he will “win the Hispanic vote” and ultimately the White House in 2016.
“I’m a job machine,” Trump stated while talking about his relationship with women and Hispanics during a press conference on Tuesday at Trump Tower. “I predict I am going to win the Hispanic vote.”
I have been amazing with respect to the hiring of women. This building was built as the head person – who was fantastic – was a woman. And that was at a time when you didn’t see that in the construction trades. It was totally unique. I have many, many executives upstairs and in different buildings that I have that are women.
“They get paid a lot of money in many cases, more than men doing the same job,” Trump said when he was asked by a reporter about references in his book to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and fellow GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. “Women have always appreciated that about me. I’ve been – in terms of employment – really a stand out, and I’ve been honored for doing so well with women.”
A reporter from Telemundo then questioned Trump about protests against him from the Hispanic community.
“I have a great relationship…with the Hispanics,” he responded. “I have working for me thousands right now, thousands of Hispanics. I’ve had tens of thousands of people over the years working for me. I’m a job machine.”
“I’ve had a great relationship with the workers. I’ve had a great relationship with jobs, and I’ve had an amazing relationship with the Hispanics. And I predict that I’m going to win the Hispanic vote,” Trump touted.
“I think I’m going to get the nomination and I will win the White House,” he declared. “I think beating Hillary Clinton is going to be easy because her record is so bad.”
