Donald Trump Admits His Supporters Are Psychotic — 'I Could Shoot Somebody And They'd Still Vote For Me'
By Steve Holland and Ginger Gibson
U.S. Republican front-runner Donald Trump expressed confidence on Saturday that he could push back attempts by his rivals to knock him off his top perch, saying he could stand on New York's Fifth Avenue "and shoot somebody," and still not lose voters.
Trump, the New York billionaire and former reality TV star who has been virtually impervious to attacks from his opponents, pushed the limits of his political rhetoric again in Sioux Center, Iowa.
"I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose any voters," he said.
Trump has been a difficult target for criticism from his rivals because not all of his supporters are conservatives and many are most interested in his projection of strength, not where he stands on a particular issue.
