Takes credit for McCarthy drop

8 Oct, 2015

At a campaign event in Las Vegas, Trump says he is partly responsible for McCarthy’s decision to drop his bid to become speaker.

They’re giving me a lot of credit for that because I said you really need someone very, very, tough and very smart. You know, smart goes with tough. I know tough people that aren’t smart. That’s the worst. We need smart, we need tough, we need the whole package.
