With less than two weeks until voters from Iowa select the GOP nominee, Donald Trump still remains overly confident that he will emerge victorious. So confident, in fact, the GOP frontrunner says his supporters would remain loyal even if he committed a capital offense.
“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” Trump remarked at a campaign stop at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. “It’s, like, incredible.”
The businessman, whose Trump Tower stands on the major Manhattan thoroughfare, cracked the joke Saturday to a receptive audience at the Christian college.
Reached by CNN immediately after the event, Trump declined to clarify the statement.
Just left Sioux Center, Iowa. My speech was very well received. Truly great people! Packed house- overflow!
