Dan Quayle: Trump Has Wanted to Be in Office for a Long Time

On Sunday, New York City’s AM 970 host John Catsimatidis spoke with former Vice President Dan Quayle his “The Cats Roundtable” program and the two discussed GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“If you look at it today, Donald Trump’s the man to beat,” Quayle said of Trump.

“He’s been interested in office for a long time,” he continued. “Way back in 1988 he let my boss, George H.W. Bush, know that he would be interested in being vice president. I’m glad he didn’t select Donald Trump and I’m glad he selected me, but that goes back many years when Donald Trump was thinking about serving in public office. This is not something that he’s recently come up with. He’s been thinking of this for a long time. And I think Republicans and others got to realize that he is going to be there for a long time and he could possibly be the nominee. I don’t know.”
