Donald Trump addressed the concerns raised by Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton on Friday about his potentially harmful approach to foreign policy. On Thursday, Clinton accused the Republican candidate of having "thin skin" and suggested that he should not be entrusted with the U.S. military arsenal.
"I don't have thin skin. I have very strong, very thick skin," Trump told CNN's Jake Tapper in an interview on "State of the Union" that aired Sunday.
"I have a strong temperament," Trump continued. "It's a very good temperament and it's a very in-control temperament, or I wouldn't have built this unbelievable company. I wouldn't have built all of the things I've been able to do in life."
The presumptive GOP nominee told Tapper that the United States has "been taken advantage of by everybody" precisely because "we have people with weak temperaments" in charge of making critical foreign policy decisions.
