For someone who has spent the last several months calling Hillary Clinton “crooked” (one of the more polite things he’s said about her), Donald Trump seems like a guy who used to really like Hillary Clinton.
In an exchange from 2008 just recently uncovered, Donald Trump seemed to throw his support behind then-Senator Hillary Clinton’s bid for the Democratic nomination, calling her “fantastic.”
In the span of a few minutes, within in the same interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Trump also lauded 2008 Presidential Primary candidates Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney. ““Well, I support Hillary,” said Trump. “I think she’s fantastic. I supported Rudy. I think Romney is doing a very good job. I mean, there’s — every one of them, they are very…” Seems like Trump was just as confused in 2008 as he is now.

Trump of course has a long history of calling Hillary Clinton a friend and even said in a 2008 blog post that he thought Clinton would make a “great president.”
Trump and his campaign have written this past praise off as Trump’s business acumen, stating that he needed to maintain a good relationship with politicians of both parties. The candidate Donald Trump clearly doesn’t seem to care as much about those relationships as the businessman Donald Trump did.
