Trump was for Hillary Clinton before he was against her.
During the 2007 Democratic presidential primary, Donald Trump spoke favorably of Hillary Clinton, telling Wolf Blitzer that he thought she would win the nomination “rather easily.”
“I know her very well,” Trump said. “She’s very talented. And she has a husband that I also like very much. I think she’s going to get the nomination rather easily.”
Trump added later in the interview that he thinks Hillary Clinton is “very, very capable.”
