New York real estate mogul Donald Trump cautioned Republicans against nominating either former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney or former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for president in 2016 — sparking a hearty applause and rounds of laughter from the conservatives gathered here for the Iowa Freedom Summit.
Mr. Trump said he is “seriosuly considering” running for president, and said that Mr. Romney had his chance, but “choked,” and that Mr. Bush is on the wrong side of the debates over immigration and the K-12 educations standards known as Common Core.
“You just can’t have those two,” Mr. Trump said.
