Republican front-runner Donald Trump took a shot at fellow presidential candidate Gov. Scott Walker for not raising taxes to shrink Wisconsin’s deficit while being interviewed by George Stephanopoulus on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday.
TRUMP: I’m not worried because the state is really in trouble. I mean it’s a fantastic place, and I love the people of Wisconsin, but if you look at what’s going to happen, there’s a $2.2 billion deficit. They were supposed to have a surplus of a billion… He’s stopped a lot of work because he doesn’t want to raise taxes, so instead of raising taxes he’s borrowing… and the state is thirty eight, number thirty eight out of the states, ranked number 38. That’s not very good. I’m honored that he wants to copy me, he’s a nice man. I gave him campaign contributions when he was running for governor. I like him very much, but his state has not performed well.
