The One Video Donald Trump Hopes You’ll Never See

A newly discovered tape from an interview that aired days after the 2008 presidential election has surfaced online, where Trump praised Hillary Clinton for being “smart, tough and a very nice person.” He also lauded Bill Clinton, calling him a “great President.”

Clinton was reeling at the time, having lost the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama in a bruising contest months earlier. Her ambitions were in tatters, but Trump still thought she had a bright future in politics.

“I think her history is far from being over. I’d like to answer that question in another 15 years from now. She’s going to go down, at a minimum, as a great senator,” Trump told NY1 News.

“I think she’s a wonderful woman, I think that she’s a little bit misunderstood. You know, Hillary’s a very smart woman, a very tough woman, that’s fine. But she’s also a very nice person.”

“I know Hillary, and I know her husband very well, and they’re fine people. But I thought she was perhaps unnecessarily roughed up. She took some pretty hard hits.”

“I think you’ll be looking at the record of Hillary Clinton, and how did she do as secretary of state — probably above and beyond everybody else.”

Trump went on to say that he’s a big fan of Clinton and that she would make a “great president.”

But that’s not the only time Trump has praised Clinton. During and interview in 2013, Trump told ABC News:

“I think you’ll be looking at the record of Hillary Clinton, and how did she do as secretary of state — probably above and beyond everybody else.”

Here’s the interview:

Well, Donald Trump didn’t think of Hillary Clinton as a “nasty woman”. In fact, he used to be a big fan!
