Trump says he'd get OPEC to cut oil prices
Donald Trump says that the "right messenger" could tell OPEC to lower crude oil prices, insisting that prices "will go down if you say it properly."
Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul who is considering a 2012 GOP presidential run, added that he would have gone into Libya and "I would take the oil.
"We don't use our brainpower," Trump said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "We need one thing: brainpower."
Asked on by CNN host Candy Crowley what his idea would be to get OPEC to lower crude oil prices, Trump said: "It's the messenger."
"I can send two executives into a room. They can say the same things; one guy comes home with the bacon and the other guy doesn't," Trump said. "I've seen it a thousand times. ... We don't have the right messenger. [President Barack] Obama is not the right messenger. We are not a respected nation anymore and the world is laughing at us."
