Donald Trump, currently a frontrunner for the GOP 2012 nomination though he has not yet announced whether he will run, called former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney a “small business guy” and said if elected, Romney would get rid of jobs. Trump insisted on CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley Sunday that one he’d be a better president than Romney is because Trump is richer.

“I’m a much bigger business man,” he said. “And I have a much, much bigger net worth. I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney. And I don’t know Mitt Romney. I really don’t know him. So I’m not saying good or bad. I know some of the other candidates. I don’t know Mitt Romney.”
