Trump and the Auto Bailout

The Club for Growth has unearthed another interview between Donald Trump and Fox News’s Neil Cavuto:

CAVUTO: Do you think that we can afford to do without one of the Big Three?

TRUMP: No. I think you should have the Big Three. I think, frankly, they should do dip financing. I think the government should stand behind them 100 percent. You cannot lose the auto companies.

Maybe they’re not making too much. I mean, I just bought a Dodge Ram truck from Arrigo Dodge, who’s a member of one of my clubs and great guy. (Fox News, 12/17/08)
