“Orrin — I love listening to him speak. He said once that I am the single greatest president in his lifetime — now he’s a young man, so it’s not that much. And he actually once said I’m the greatest president in the history of our country, and I said, ‘Does that include Lincoln and Washington?’ And he said, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘I love this guy.’ I love him. He’s a special guy.” – Trump, speaking today at the GOP retreat in West Virginia.
Per Hatch spox, he has said that Trump “can be” the greatest president ever but has never said “is”
