Trump: Rove is worse than Bush

On Greta Van Susteren's show last night, Donald Trump suggested that Barack Obama's election wasn't entirely George W. Bush's fault.

"Karl Rove is the man that ran Bush into the ground.

Bush finished so weak that we ended up getting Obama. [Rove] ran the man into the ground.

And the more I see about Karl Rove, the more I realize: maybe it wasn't completely Bush's fault.... so I don't want to listen to Karl Rove."

Earlier this week, Karl Rove slammed Trump over his accusations that George W. Bush's unpopular presidency turned the country toward a Democrat in 2008.

"Donald Trump can run his campaign any way he wants.

If he wants to run down George Bush and ask for the Republican nomination, I don't think that's a winning strategy.

And if he wants to base his entire campaign upon whether or not Barack Obama was really born in the United States, that's his privilege. I just think that's a losing strategy."

The feud started when Rove called Trump a "joke candidate" last week.
