GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump says he thinks a negative ad that features clip after bleeped-out clip of him swearing publically is actually going to help him with voters.
Trump said he “can be more presidential than anybody” but that right now he’s focused on beating his rivals.
He adds that, “people are sick and tired of being politically correct.”
Trump says that in some of the instances shows in the ad he was joking. In others, he says he was demonstrating “a certain toughness that we need in our country.”
He adds that if he had a choice between taking the ad down and letting it run, he’d say, “let it run.”
