'Apprentice' star Donald Trump says he would fire Condoleezza Rice
UPI News Service, 01/14/2007
Real estate tycoon Donald Trump says he'd like to fire U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice because of what he sees as poor negotiating skills.
Trump -- who has lately been engaged in a public feud with "The View" co-host Rosie O'Donnell -- offered his critique in an interview on Fox News, the New York Daily News reported.
Trump said Rice seems like a nice person, but doesn't cut it as a negotiator.
"I see Condoleezza Rice -- she goes on a plane, she gets off a plane, she waves, she goes there to meet some dictator," Trump said. "They talk, she leaves, she waves, the plane takes off. Nothing happens, it's a joke, nothing ever happens. I think she's a very nice woman, but I don't want a nice woman. I want someone that's not necessarily nice."
