Donald Trump:’ I’m not going anywhere, I’m leading every poll and I’m going to make our country great again!’
ashington (CNN)Donald Trump forcefully rejected the idea Tuesday that he might be considering getting out of the race as his lead in the polls has contracted in recent weeks. "I'm not going anywhere, I'm leading every poll and I'm going to make our country great again," Trump told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day" on Tuesday morning.
Trump supports right to own assault weapons.
Trump remains the leading contender for the GOP nomination in all the major polls, but that lead has slipped in recent weeks as contenders like retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and businesswoman Carly Fiorina gain on the billionaire candidate.
Later on Tuesday, the Republican also defended his support for eminent domain, which allows government to seize private land and pays the owners in return. Some conservatives, such as the influential Club for Growth, which is attacking Trump for his position, oppose the power in order to protect property rights.
"Eminent domain — when it comes to jobs, roads, the public good — I think it's a wonderful thing," Trump told Fox News' Bret Baier. "I fully understand the conservative approach, but I don't think it was explained to most conservatives."
