Trump: ‘I Was the Establishment’ Two Months Ago

Tuesday at the Birch Run Expo Center in Michigan, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump said, “I was the establishment. Two months ago, I was like the fair-haired boy. I was a giver. I was a big giver,” explaining, “once I decided to run, all of a sudden I’m sort of semi anti-establishment.”

Trump said, “I mean, I want to run as a Republican. That is what I’m doing. I’m leading in every poll. The local and the national polls leading and by substantial margins. I hope that I will be the Republican nominee because that is the best way. I’m going to keep the door open on the other. If I’m not treated fairly and the word is fairly, doesn’t mean well. If I’m not treated fairly, we’ll see what happens. Fairly means fairly. I want to be treated fairly. I want the establishment — look, I was part of the establishment. Let me explain. I was the establishment. Two months ago, I was like the fair-haired boy. I was a giver. I was a big giver. Once I decided to run, all of a sudden I’m sort of semi anti-establishment. Now leading in all the polls, they’re treating me very well.”

“I mean, I’m being treated very well. Reince Priebus is very terrific. His people are very terrific. They’re dealing with my people, with Corey well. I want to run as a Republican, not a third-party independent. I want to run as a Republican. As long as I’m treated fairly that is going to be a case. And fairly is an instinct. It’s an instinct. I know what fair is, you know what fair is. I know what it is, yeah, and I think that is happening. And by the way, win, lose or draw, I’m not just saying I have to win. Now I guarantee you this if I win the Republican nomination, I guarantee you all sitting there, I will not run the third party candidate, do you agree?”
