In crowded presidential field, Rush Limbaugh highlights Donald Trump 

Rush Limbaugh had Donald Trump on his show yesterday to talk about his thoughts on the country's direction and a potential run for president.

"This is not a respected country anymore." Trump stated, "I love this country.  It's got potential to be great again.  But, really, Rush, it's not great right now."

As in his CPAC speech earlier this  year, Trump angrily denounced China and the OPEC nations, saying as president he would fight against their influence on the American economy.

Trump also responded to critics who pointed out that he donated to Rahm Emanual's mayoral campaign, reminding the audience that he was a businessman first and that Rahm's brother Ari was a personal friend of his.

After the call, Rush had this to say about the American billionaire:

Say whatever you will about Donald Trump, there's one thing nobody can deny, and that is he has a can-do spirit -- good old American can-do spirit -- and Trump's can-do spirit is backed up with Trump's can-do action.  It really is.  I would love to see a debate on economics between Trump and Obama.
