I really have nothing to add to this, from the Washington Post:
“It has not been easy for me. It has not been easy for me,” Donald Trump said Monday morning during a televised town hall on the “Today” show. What hadn’t been easy? His career. “I started off in Brooklyn,” he explained. “My father gave me a small loan … I came into Manhattan and I had to pay him back, and I had to pay him back with interest.” The small loan? We took the number out of that quote for effect. It was a small loan of $1 million.
Wait. I do have one small thing to add (small as in “not large,” not small as in “$1 million”). It’s this: comments like this are really off-brand for Trump but may actually reveal his true nature. He’s sort of a whiny, thin-skinned, over-sensitive pampered rich boy, isn’t he?
And in that respect, he resembles another Republican candidate:
