Before Donald Trump hated Hillary Clinton, he loved her. He really loved her.
As Mother Jones notes, Trump once celebrated Clinton when she was First Lady, including a photo of her with his sons Don Jr. and Eric, which he included in his book The Art of the Comeback.
Trump was even saddened that the Clintons didn’t consult with him when they began house hunting in New York in 1999. The Clinton’s ultimately ended up in Chappaqua, New York, about 30 miles north of former President Clinton’s office in Harlem.
“I just wish I could have maybe represented him in buying the house, and her,” Trump told Larry King in an interview. “Because I think I could save them about $600,000 or $700,000.”
At the time, Trump was thinking about running for president on the Reform Party ticket. But he made sure to tell King, “I like her very much.”
Trump seemed disappointed when Clinton lost the 2008 Democratic primary to then-Senator Barack Obama. But the loss didn’t quiet his support of her.
“I think she’s going to go down, at a minimum, as a great senator,” Trump explained to local cable station NY1. “I think she is a great wife to a president, and I think Bill Clinton was a great president.”

Japan wants to dump Fukushima radioactive water into ocean
Japan's top government spokesman slapped down the environment minister on Tuesday after he said there was "no other option" but to release radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean.
"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates
President Donald Trump has a personal conflict-of-interest that may be impacting his decisions in his public feud with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.
"President Trump stands to save millions of dollars annually in interest on outstanding loans on his hotels and resorts if the Federal Reserve lowers rates as he has been demanding, according to public filings and financial experts," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.
