Former President Donald Trump tells New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman in her upcoming book that running for president was good for him.
"The question I get asked more than any other question: 'If you had it to do again, would you have done it?' The answer is, yeah, I think so. Because here's the way I look at it. I have so many rich friends and nobody knows who they are," Trump stated, according to an excerpt from the book in a Sunday edition of The Atlantic.
The excerpt comes as a collection of three interviews Haberman had with Trump following his leave from the White House.
According to the excerpt, Trump mentions how easy life would be had he not run but notes that he enjoyed "getting things done" as president.
While Haberman's book "Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America" is expected to be published next month, the book is anticipated to contain interviews on such matters as to why, according to Trump, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., "kisses my ass" or how Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is a "piece of s***."
Despite the title, Trump said that he "loved" being interviewed by Haberman. "She's like my psychiatrist."
