Trump: ‘If You’re Running for President, You Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Use Teleprompters’

Before a Dubuque, IA rally on Tuesday night, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump spoke with reporters telling them that he “doesn’t believe in teleprompters” and that is why he has gotten large crowds, such as the 30,000 people that showed up at his Mobile, AL rally over the weekend.

“I’m always on live television and if you’re on live television every three or four days you got to say things different. You can’t give the same stories, right? I think about my speeches and I don’t believe in teleprompters, although it’s easy to stand up and read a speech for half an hour and leave. You wouldn’t have sold out crowds like I have. You wouldn’t have 30,000 people like we had in Alabama and the crowd we had the other night in New Hampshire.”

“It’s not the same,” Trump added. “In fact, I jokingly say if you’re running for president, you shouldn’t be allowed to use teleprompters. So I think about my speeches a lot. I think about what I’m going to say, but I essentially don’t use notes, and I definitely don’t read the speeches because I think it’s much easier.”

Trump later jokingly told reporters that people “are shocked” at how smart he is because he does things on his own.
