Former reality television star and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told Breibart News on Thursday that he doesn’t expect Hillary Clinton to make it to the general election.
Instead, the GOP frontrunner answered Breitbart’s question about whether he expects to face Vice President Joe Biden, who has not announced a run for the Democratic nomination, despite reports he is considering it.
“I think so,” Trump responded, according to Breitbart.
Trump told the conservative news site that Clinton’s private email server use was worse than Gen. David Paetreus sharing classified information with the woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair.
“It just looks like Hillary is going to not be able to run. It looks to me like that’s what’s going to happen,” Trump told Breitbart. “I think it’s unlikely if you look at what she’s done. What she’s done is ten times worse than what General Petraeus did—far more sensitive documents, top-of-the-line sensitive documents, far more of them.”
A report from BuzzFeed News on Monday accused Breitbart of taking money from the billionaire for more favorable coverage.
Breitbart has denied a “pay for play” arrangement. But for the post, the website flaunted its access to the candidate, describing the interview as a “wide-ranging interview with Breitbart News in his office on the 26th floor of Trump Tower.”
During the course of the 30-minute interview, the real estate mogul called his rival and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush a “puppet,” but didn’t comment on any of the other Republicans vying for the nomination.
