Posted by | April 19, 2011 13:23 | Filed under: Top Stories

Reborn conservative Donald Trump is praising Ronald Reagan these days, but that wasn’t the case in  his book The Art of the Deal. (via Think Progress). Trump told Sean Hannity how much he admired Reagan, and how smart he was.

HANNITY: Who are our past presidents that you admire most?

TRUMP: Well, I really like and knew a little bit Ronald Reagan, and I really liked him. You know, not only his policies, smart guy and so much smarter, you know, I always sort of have to laugh to myself when people try and criticize that level of intelligence. And I loved his style. I loved what he represented. … I thought he represented something very special for this county.

However, in The Art of the Deal Trump compared Reagan to Jimmy Carter who he called a “con” who couldn’t “deliver the goods.”

Can Donald Trump relate to being a “con”?
