Larry King interviewed many but some interviews were with people most of us knew by name, reputation or both. Donald Trump would fall into that category and certainly Larry King would keep his audience interested by asking direct questions. Trump clearly pointed out that he was a known Democrat ..... Duhh!!!
but the other guy got in, makes you think doesn't it?
He likes to win and says he'll make America great again
But what do you really know about him ??
How soon we forget, Trump on Larry King - Trump in 2009
Here’s the transcript from the April 2009 Larry King appearance:
KING: There are a lot of great topics. One of them is Barack Obama. In fact, the list at the back of the book on the topics, the number one is, “Barack Obama’s election ushers in a different world.”
How do you assess him?
TRUMP: Well, I really like him. I think that he’s working very hard. He’s trying to rebuild our reputation throughout the world. I mean, we really have lost a lot of reputation in the world. The previous administration was a total disaster, a total catastrophe.
And, you know, the world looks at us differently than they used to. And I think he’s trying to restore our reputation within the world. And he was handed a pretty bad deck of cards. I mean, he was given a pretty tough situation.
And I’m not saying I agree with everything he’s doing. I do agree with what they’re doing with the banks. Whether they fund them or nationalize them, it doesn’t matter, but you have to keep the banks going.
Beyond that, I’m not so sure I agree with it, because I…I am worried, ultimately, about inflation. If you take this much money and keep pouring it into the economy, I worry about what’s going to happen in two years with respect to not only interest rates, but inflation.
KING: Do you have any regrets about endorsing McCain?
TRUMP: No. I’ve known John for a long time. And I’ve never met our current president. And I look forward to doing it. But I’ve known John, really, for a long time. He’s a good man. He’s a quality man. So certainly I have no regrets about that.
KING: Any advice — it may be presumptuous to say this — but any advice you’d give the president — something you think he should do he’s not doing?
TRUMP: Well, I think what he is doing and what he wasn’t doing initially is talking up the economy, talking up the country. I think he’s really gone from maybe not doing it so much at the beginning — and, in fact, he was being criticized for it — to really doing it in spades. And I think that’s good.
I think he’s talking up the country. I think he’s talking up — starting to talk up the economy.
And, you know, economy is largely a psychological thing. If people think the banks are weak, the country is going to be weak. Now, the problem is, the banks are weak. We know they’re weak. They’re not loaning money.
Now he has to get the banks to go in and start loaning the money.
KING: Why does he retain this incredible popularity?
TRUMP: Well, I think he’s sort of a guy that just has a wonderful personality, a good speaker, somebody that people trust. And I also think that the comparison with his predecessor is so different — it’s so huge that it really has made a great impact on people.
I think that he’s really doing a nice job in terms of representation of this country. And he represents such a large part of the country.
I mean, to think that a black man was going to be elected president — I watched television for years where the great political analysts were saying maybe in 50, maybe in 100 years.
Here’s a man that not only got elected, I think he’s doing a really good job.
Now, the sad part is that he can’t just do a good job. He’s got to do a great job. Because if he does a good job, that’s not good enough for this country. That’s how bad the country has become.
KING: Do you assess him as a champion?
TRUMP: Oh, yes, he’s a champion. I mean, he won against all odds. If you would have looked — when he first announced, people were giving him virtually no chance. And he’s just done something that’s amazing.

John Sununu Lashes Out at Donald Trump: ‘He’s Been a Loser All His Life’Feb. 5, 2016 4:27pm Chris Enloe
Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu has some tough words for Republican front-runner Donald Trump, just days before the New Hampshire primary.
“He’s been a loser all his life,” Sununu said in an interview with ABC News published Friday.

Sununu was responding to an attack from Trump himself, who said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” earlier in the week that Sununu was a “main loser” after GMA host George Stephanopoulos reminded Trump that Sununu was critical of his runner-up finish in the Iowa Republican caucuses.
“He’s had four big bankruptcies. Trump Airlines went bankrupt, Trump Magazines shut down, Trump Steaks went out of business, and when he was the owner of New Jersey Generals, they also went out business,” Sununu went on to say in his interview with ABC.
“This guy has a history of failure and losing,” he added. “He’s a perpetual loser.”
However, Sununu, who was once the chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush, acknowledged the Manhattan mogul’s appeal, citing angry voters nationwide.
Ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, which is the first in the nation, Trump leads his fellow Republican candidates by a wide margin, 16 points, according to the RealClearPolitics average.
