Donald Trump wants Americans to know he is not to blame for his attacks on other Republicans.
The 2016 Republican presidential front-runner appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and told host Jonathan Karl his shots on his opponents are merely self-defense.
“Every attack I made was a counter punch,” Trump told Karl. “They attacked me first and I hit them back, and maybe harder than they hit me, but the fact is I’ve been attacked pretty viciously by some of these guys.”
Trump was quick to assert that he has a “tremendous amount of respect” for many of his Republican opponents, but he is not going to back down.
“I have been attacked and I counter punch,” Trump told Karl. “I didn’t start the attacks.”
