Trump: ‘I Will Gladly Accept The Mantle Of Anger’

January 14, 2016 9:53 p.m.

Donald Trump is mad and he is not afraid to talk about it even it it makes South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) uncomfortable.

Trump acknowledged during the Thursday night GOP debate that he was “very, very angry.”

“I am very angry because our country is being run horribly and I will gladly accept the mantle of anger,” Trump said. “Our country is being run by incompetent people.”

Trump said the anger in America was warranted as he rattled off problems with the U.S. border, the economy, health care and veterans affairs.

During the debate Thursday, Trump said that he still likes Haley and they are still “friends,” but he was not going to apologize after Haley criticized Trump and warned voters against following “the angriest voices” in her official GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
