Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday defended his comments about being able to shoot someone and retain support from GOP voters.
Asked during an appearance on CBS’s “Face The Nation” about his declaration that “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said the comments were intended to demonstrate the durability of his polling advantage ahead of early voting in states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
“Well, I have a very great group of people … I have people that are so loyal and it’s been so reported and even in your poll, but in a lot of the polls they do that, the loyalty factor,” he said.
“And my factor’s up – when you add it all up, it’s pretty much close to 90 percent,” Trump continued. “These are people that just won’t leave, they will not leave. I love my people. And it’s a great thing. I mean, it’s a great thing. Far greater loyalty than any other candidate by double, triple, quadruple and I love my people.”
