Trump tells Boca Raton crowd he can oust Obama in 2012

April 17, 2011

By CHARLES ELMORE, The Palm Beach Post

BOCA RATON, FL — Not yet officially a candidate, Donald Trump sounded a lot like a man on the stump at an outdoor gathering of tea party enthusiasts Saturday.

Trump cast himself as a pro-life, pro-guns dealmaker who will negotiate better trade terms with rivals such as China.

Wearing a blue blazer and tie, part-time Palm Beacher Trump also declared himself the man best suited to ousting President Obama in 2012.

Just mentioning the words “our current president” brought boos and catcalls from the crowd. At least three older attendees were treated by paramedics for fainting on a warm afternoon.

“They all want me to say, ‘You’re fired,’ ” Trump said, referring the catchphrase of his TV show Celebrity Apprentice. There’s a long way to go before that happens, he said, but “I’ve got it in the back of my mind.”

Trump pledged to “fight to get rid of Obamacare, which is a total disaster.”

The real estate mogul and TV personality renewed “birther” questions about where President Obama was born, though Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly among others have found allegations he was not born in Hawaii lacking in merit and officials in Hawaii have affirmed his birth there.

His trademark hair barely moving in an afternoon breeze, Trump went on to pronounce Obama as the worst president in U.S. history. In 2007 Trump said then-president George W. Bush, a Republican, was possibly the worst.

Trump presented himself as the man to get the job done where Washington has failed.

“Considering the shape the United States is in right now, we need a competitor and a highly competent person to deal with what’s going on,” Trump said.

He added, “If I run and win, our country will be respected again.”

South Florida Tea Party chairman Everett Wilkinson estimated a throng of at least 2,000 filled Sanborn Square in Boca Raton.

    He’s good buddy with vehemently anti-gun Mayor Bloomberg of NYC. Trump HATES so called “assault” weapons, he hates your AR-15, AK-47 and anything in civilian hands that LOOKS like a military firearm. He believes the police and military should be the ONLY ones to have particular types of firearms and citizens should be banned from owning those firearms. Sounds like a Liberal Democat (aka Progressive Marxist Socialist). Hope he doesn’t make it to the Primary.
