Republican presidential candidate and business mogul Donald Trump voiced his displeasure with Boston Mayor Martin Walsh’s decision to end the city’s Olympic bid Monday. He tweeted a short time after Walsh’s press conference explaining the failure in not pursuing the bid further.
Walsh had this one-liner locked and loaded in response to Trump’s statement when asked about the tweet on Dennis & Callahan.
“As I said earlier, that’s going to sound like his presidential campaign in about two months,” Walsh said.
Furthermore, after citing Trump’s rise in the polls following a name-drop by President Barack Obama, Dennis & Callahan teased Walsh, suggesting that he might consider running for national office after Trump’s public ridicule. Walsh didn’t rule out a future campaign.
“I might throw my hat in the ring for getting in on the democratic side,” he said.
When asked if he might endorse Bernie Sanders, Walsh stated that he had not considered it yet, but that he would stand behind a candidate in the near future.
“We’re going to see what happens in this race for a little while,” Walsh said. “I’m sure I’ll endorse somebody at some point.”
