Bill Clinton ‘Encouraged’ Trump to Run [VIDEO]

Bill Clinton called Donald Trump this spring and “encouraged Trump’s efforts to play a larger role in the Republican Party,” The Washington Post reported Wednesday, citing five people familiar with the exchange. Clinton’s personal office confirmed the call occurred. Trump aides claim their boss was “candid about his political ambitions and his potential interest in seeking the White House during the talk….” Clinton “analyzed Trump’s prospects and his desire to rouse the GOP base,” according to Trump allies.
