“My father is a guy who speaks his mind, not a PC candidate… That’s why people love him... He’s not the typical politician… She [Hillary Clinton] does have a horrific track record,” he said.
Trump says his dad has made a “real difference” in the country.
“I think he’s done more for politics literally than anybody in a decade and maybe much… longer. The guy has literally taken my generation, a younger generation -- he’s gotten them interested… He’s got 30 million people watching the debates.” He added, “I actually told him he’s already won this. I think he’s going to win it. I think he’s going to win the nomination. I think he is going to go all the way.”
When asked whether his dad would choose Ted Cruz as a running mate he said: “He’s out to win this thing and I think he’ll chose the best running mate in the world and I think he’ll actually build a cabinet comprised of the best people in the world.”
He also discussed billionaire T. Boone Pickens’ call for a bipartisan panel to vet candidates for president.
“There is no better vetting process than being up on stage 24/7 with a microphone pointed at your face in front of 30,000 people day in and day out -- That is your vetting process and I have tremendous respect for any candidate who can get through that,” he said.
