Trump being in White House would be very uncomfortable: Richard Branson
Republican nominee Donald Trump becoming president of the United States would be very uncomfortable, billionaire Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson on Tuesday said an interview on MSNBC.
“I know what a vindictive person he is, if gets into the White House I’m clearly for the chop. I’ve got an island I’ll go and hide away on that and hope he can’t find it,” Sir Richard said.
The billionaire also said that the supporters of the republican Presidential hopeful have a “false image” of Trump. “
Taking on the ‘entrepreneur Trump’, Branson added: “The businesses that he has run have gone bankrupt. He is not a safe pair of hands to be running the most important country, arguable, in the world.”
The most recognisable British entrepreneur also revealed his support to Hillary during the interview saying, “she is very able, she has so many years of experience and she would be a very safe pair of hands.”
In a blog post published on Friday titled, Meeting Donald Trump, the British tycoon had described about a one-on-one lunch meeting at Trump’s apartment in Manhattan.
Branson wrote: They were meeting for the first time and he recalled how “even before the starters arrived, he began telling me about how he had asked a number of people for help after his latest bankruptcy and how five of them were unwilling to help. He told me he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying these five people.”
Many reports have earlier suggested Clinton is leading against Donald Trump with a double-digit advantage after number of sexual allegations damaged the Republican’s chances of winning the election.
However, the preliminary numbers appear to reveal that Clinton face a tough competition from her rival in several of the roughly 10 battleground states.
