“DC will never be a state. You mean District of Columbia, a state? Why? So we can have two more Democratic — Democrat senators and five more congressmen? No thank you. That’ll never happen.
“They want to do that so they pick up two automatic Democrat — you know it’s a 100 percent Democrat, basically — so why would the Republicans ever do that?
“That’ll never happen unless we have some very, very stupid Republicans around that I don’t think you do. You understand that, right?
“Why don’t you just take two senators and put them in there? No, it’s not gonna happen. And it how many House seats is it? Like four, three or four? Whatever it is.
“You’d have three or four more congressmen and two more senators, every single day of every single year. And it would never change. No, the Republicans would never do that.” – Donald Trump, speaking to the New York Post.
