Bill Clinton urged Donald Trump to run for president.

Food delivery service Eat 24 promised to give out free treats every time the property mogul said the word ‘Mexico’, turning his negative comments on illegal immigrants into a positive. Real estate mogul Donald Trump on Thursday commented on a phone call that took place between himself and former President Bill Clinton earlier this year. “Yeah, he called me,” Trump told reporters after the first GOP presidential debate in Cleveland. “He’s not happy that I’m running, I can tell you right now, because he thinks I’m the worst nightmare for Hillary.” The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that the two spoke over the phone in a private conversation, but that the election had not come up.Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump raised eyebrows Thursday when he revealed that Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton attended his wedding, claiming it was because he had donated significantly to the Clinton Foundation.Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina knocked him for reportedly getting a call from Bill Clinton before he jumped into the race, while Kentucky Sen.Bill Clinton encouraged Donald Trump to follow his political dreams and run against Hillary for the White House, it was revealed yesterday, stirring intrigue hours before the critical first primary debate between the billionaire and his leading rivals for the Republican nomination.

Clinton reportedly “encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party.” “I would say this, nobody has spoken up this strongly of Hillary as I have,” he said. “She should literally — this is a criminal act that she has done, and all you have to do is ask General [David] Petraeus because you look at what happened to him, and that’s peanuts compared to what Hillary did. The business mogul was asked about donations he had made to a number of Democratic candidates including Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., which he justified by saying that he did it to get people to do what he wanted. The disclosure that Mr Trump had sought counsel from the former president in May added a layer of mischief to what is already one of the most remarkable presidential campaigns in decades.

Fox News host Bret Baier questioned Trump at the Fox News-Facebook Republican presidential primary debate about what Hillary Clinton did for him in return for his donations. “I gave to a foundation that frankly, that foundation is supposed to do good,” Trump said. “I didn’t know her money would be used for private jets going all over the world — it was.” Speaking to a room of reporters in Brooklyn, Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri said, “That hurt our feelings.” The exchange centers on the fact that Clinton went to Trump’s 2005 wedding to his current wife, Melania Knauss in Palm Beach, Florida.

And here’s a happy photo to prove it: Clinton spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri responded: “He invited her; they’re acquaintances; this is long established. In that statement, he also referenced the donations he’s made to Clinton’s past campaigns as well as the Clinton Foundation. “As a contributor,” Trump said in the statement. “I demanded that they be there — they had no choice and that’s what’s wrong with our country. Facebook, which was co-sponsoring the event, issued polling before the debate indicating that the most discussed political topics on its site were race, Mexico, immigration and the economy. The challenge for Mr Bush, a strategist for a rival candidate said, was to convince enough Republicans that he had “the fire in the belly” to lead. In the run-up to the debate he was touting a record of cutting taxes and limiting access to abortions, but polls suggested that more than 40 per cent of Republicans still did not know who he was.

For the host of other candidates, including Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and Chris Christie, the debate offered an opportunity to rejuvenate their flagging campaigns.
