DONALD TRUMP: But Greg is smart, and by the way, never wrestle him. You understand that, never. 

Any guy that can do a body slam, he's my kind of guy. He's my guy. I shouldn't say that -- there's nothing to be embarrassed about.

So I was in Rome with a lot of the leaders from other countries, talking about all sort of things and we heard about it. And we endorsed Greg very early but I had heard that he body slammed a reporter. And he was way up, and he was way up, and I said this was like the day of the election, or just before, and I said oh, this is terrible he's going to lose the election, then I said well wait a minute, I know Montana pretty well, I think it might help him, and it did. No, he's a great guy. Tough cookie.
