The “I am not a robot” speech Donald Trump delivered to a cheering crowd in Florida on Tuesday night was not the only time he has publicly defied public opinion.
In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Trump said that his “I don’t know” is not a defense mechanism.
“I really don’t, Chris.
I don’t think so.
I just do, you know, believe what I believe,” Trump said.
“And believe it when I say it.
That’s what I’m doing, I just don’t do it, because I don�t think I need to, because it�s not that big of a deal.”
Trump said he does not want to be a “bully,” a term that describes someone who is more assertive and forceful in his speech.
“It doesn’t mean that I don.
I want to say, ‘I am a champion, and I will say no more, and no more.’
That�s what I want,” Trump told Cuomo.
“You know, it’s not that I would say, �Hey, you want to see me, come up to the podium, and you can say, `Donald Trump.
Let�s see me.
Let me tell you what I am about.
Let it be known that I will do anything, anytime.
And I am not afraid to be the bully, Chris, because we are in a dangerous world.
We have to be brave.
We are in an unstable world.
And we have to keep doing what we are doing.
That�d be a good way to end my presidency.
That would be a very good way.”
Trump did not explain why he was being a “bullying” politician.
In the same interview, Trump added that he has spoken about “bullies” in the past.
“But I’m not going to say what it is.
I�m not going in there and say, I want you to say it, Chris,” Trump continued.
“What I’m going to do is say it when people want to hear it.
When people want a voice.
I am going to speak it.
And then I am gonna tell it.
I will be a bull.
And people are going to understand what that means.
I’m gonna speak it.”
The real estate mogul did not respond to a request for comment from ABC News about why he would not say the word “bull,” but said it was an “important point.”
“I think you know what?
If I’m being aggressive and aggressive and saying that, and that�s how I’m talking, that�d get the point across, Chris Cuomo said.
“That was a great speech, Chris.””
We had a good time,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
“That was a great speech, Chris.”
