Reporting from Las Vegas — Donald Trump, speaking to reporters after he endorsed Mitt Romney on Thursday, said he was impressed by Romney’s recent debate performances and his position on China.
“I watched the last two debates; I thought he was terrific,” Trump said. “And I really thought in terms of creating jobs and creating wealth, I thought he really had a much different attitude and I loved it. I thought his attitude was great -- in those last two debates.”
He declined to say whether he considered endorsing Newt Gingrich.
“He’s a friend of mine, I like him a lot, I respect him a lot, but this is the way I went,” Trump said.
Asked whether he would change his mind about running for president, he said if Romney is the nominee, “I wouldn’t do anything.”
