Donald Trump: Comparisons of pledge to Nazi salute ‘ridiculous’


Speaking live to TODAY by phone ahead of the Michigan primary Tuesday, Republican front-runner Donald Trump says “I’m the only one who can beat Hillary Clinton” and once again dismisses critic Mitt Romney as “a failed candidate” and Marco Rubio as “a failed senator.” Regarding comparisons of his request for a pledge of support from crowds to a Nazi salute, he says “I think it’s ridiculous” and that he was unaware of the criticism until asked about it in this TODAY interview. “If there’s anything wrong with it I wouldn’t do it,” he says. Asked if he will cease calling for the pledge he says “I will certainly look into it.”
