During his interview with Chuck Todd on Meet The Press, Donald Trump once again gave his doubts that Hillary Clinton‘s presidential run will survive her email scandal. The former Secretary of State continues to be hounded by controversy after the IG found emails labeled ‘top-secret’ on her server, and Trump said today that it would be a “miracle” for her to recover from the backlash.
“I think she may not be able to run, to be honest, because this whole email thing is a horrible thing,” Trump said. He continued with his signature line about how Clinton’s scandal is comparable to the disgrace of David Petraeus, who stepped down as CIA Director after he was found having shared sensitive information with a mistress.
“His life has been destroyed. and he did 5% of what she did,” Trump said. “So assuming she’s able to run, which would be absolutely, to me, a miracle at this point, I will beat her.”
When Todd asked Trump about recurring questions about whether his phone call from Bill Clinton was part of a conspiracy between the two, Trump denied them, saying he already knew he was running before it happened. “I think he’s very disappointed that I’m running,” Trump said, “because I’m the one person that’s going to beat her.”
