Donald Trump said he is a very good “lieutenant” who can tell the truth “and a very honest man.”
He continued to deny his accusers allegations of sexual misconduct and said he will not step down from the presidency.
Trump said he wants to get back to work on the economy and make America great again.
“I’m not running for the White House,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.
“I’m running for reelection.
I’m running as a Republican.
I mean, I’m very, I have to say that, but I’m going to be very, highly effective.””
I have no intention of stepping down,” Trump added.
“There are so many people who love me.
I just don’t want to run for the presidency again.”
Trump, who said he hopes to get reelected in 2020, said he doesn’t want “political correctness” to interfere with his presidency.
“There’s nothing I’m more proud of than my reputation,” Trump told O’Fox.
“It’s my reputation and it’s a very great reputation.
I have no plans to step down.
I will be 100 percent.””
We have a country that is totally divided,” he added.
