Not Bush? Not Romney? Who does Donald Trump like for president in 2016?.

DES MOINES, Iowa – Donald Trump slammed potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, telling a sold-out crowd Saturday at the Iowa Freedom Summit there is “no way” they would win. “The last thing we need is another Bush,” the real estate mogul and sometimes-conservative pundit told the crowd, which erupted in applause. “He’s very, very weak on immigration. His brother gave us Obama – because Abraham Lincoln coming back from the dead could not have beaten Obama.” The Des Moines summit is packed with potential 2016 GOP candidates, who are set to speak throughout the day. Romney and Bush, though, did not attend, making them an even bigger target for event organizers and speakers who deem them too moderate, particularly for the first-in-the-nation caucus state. Trump, in his signature style, laid out a laundry list of reasons why conservatives should not vote for Romney or Bush and said if he were president, the first thing he’d do is build a fence to keep out illegal immigrants. “I’m looking at it very seriously … I want to make this country great again,” Trump said. “I am seriously thinking of running for president.”

He also pledged to save Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid “without cutting it to the bone” by “making the country rich again.” He vowed to repeal Obama’s Affordable Care Act and replace it with something better, although he didn’t provide any details. Nor did Trump stop at criticizing the competition; he slammed Republicans in Congress as well, saying, “I’m very disappointed by our Republican politicians, because they let the president get away with absolute murder.” Trump, a multimillion-dollar magnate known for his real estate investments and his role in the reality television show “The Apprentice,” has toyed with running for president six times since 1988.

And from every standpoint I’m in a great position.” Trump adds that that if elected, he would build a US-Mexico border fence and would not cut Social Security. “I was leading in every poll… He had many Republican activists nodding in agreement and cheering as he ripped Democrats and showed no sympathy for GOP political leaders who don’t fight harder for conservative causes.
