LACONIA -- Donald Trump told hundreds of supporters squeezed into the Weirs Beach Community Center Thursday evening that he’s worth “ten billion” dollars.
And he told NH1 News that he’ll spend “whatever I have to do” to win the Republican presidential nomination.
Trump spoke with NH1 News as walked through a sea of supporters, security and media, as he departed his event, the third he’s held in the Granite State since launching his GOP presidential campaign on June 17.
Trump campaign officials told NH1 News that the candidate will return to New Hampshire during the first week of August.
Trump confirming what his campaign announced on Wednesday, telling the crowd that “the good news is, how much money do I have, ten billion.”
The Trump campaign also reporting that the real estate mogul and reality TV star loaned his campaign $1.8 million in its first two weeks.
Asked by NH1 News how much he’s willing to invest in his White House bid, Trump said “millions. You saw my numbers. Whatever I have to do. Whatever I have to do.”
Trump arrived in the first-in-the-nation primary state as he was first in new Fox News national poll of the GOP nomination race. It’s the second straight national survey of Republicans this week that Trump’s topped. Trump’s jump in polling’s come since his controversial comments regarding undocumented Mexican immigrants dominated national headlines.
“I have so many Hispanics and they love. They’re tremendous people. They work hard. I employ thousands. I have thousands. I love them,” Trump said, before vowing to win the Hispanic vote.
Trump aimed some of firepower at the national media for taking his comments out of context. He also saved some salvos for two of his campaign rivals, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.
‘What we can’t do is go another four years like this. And Hillary will be another four years. Think of it, she talks about tone. And Jeb Bush said essentially the same thing. He thought I was a little bit harsh. I don’t’ have time. We don’t have time. We have to get back to work,” Trump said.
