Buffett made those remarks during a rally for Hillary Clinton on his home turf in Omaha Monday.
Today, for the first time, Trump responded to Buffettâs comments.
âI donât care much about Warren Buffett, you know I had a public company, it was based in Atlantic City, the numbers, and if you look at Atlantic City, Atlantic City was run down the tubes and you look at everything that happened in Atlantic City, theyâre all bad,â Trump told the FOX Business Networkâs Stuart Varney.
While acknowledging Buffettâs longtime support of Hillary, he also took a swipe at her.
âLook, Warren Buffett, heâs a Democrat, heâs been a Hillary fan for a long time and I think thatâs fine. Hillaryâs a disaster, she lied over the weekend to Fox,â Trump continued, âyou just heard the FBI Director say she lied and she said âno, she didnât, he didnât say that,â and it was a total lie.â
Along with raising concerns about her character, Trump also criticized her tax plan.
âHillaryâs going to raise taxes very, very substantially, sheâs going to have one of the biggest tax increases ever. And Iâm doing the biggest tax decrease, so of all of the people running, including Republicans and Democrats, mine is the biggest. Weâre bringing rates down to 15%, weâre bringing them even lower for individuals and of everybody running we have the biggest. Weâre going to spur growth, tremendous growth.â
Trump is promising to boost U.S. GDP to the 4% level.
