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.”

‘Meanest and most disrespectful’ senator: Trump lashes out at Kamala Harris in latest presser
At Tuesday's White House press conference, President Donald Trump spent a considerable portion of the time attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was just announced to be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.
Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.
Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
