MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Donald Trump says watching his Republican rivals drop out of the GOP presidential race is a “beautiful thing.”
Speaking to a breakfast audience in New Hampshire, Trump says he expects more presidential contenders to start dropping out as they fail to rise in the polls. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker dropped out this fall.
Trump told the crowd he slept for just an hour and a half between Tuesday night’s GOP debate and arriving in New Hampshire, home of the first primary. He spoke at the typically business-focused Politics & Eggs event, a staple for presidential candidates coming through New Hampshire.
His crowd is the largest in the program’s 20-year history.
