Race for the White House: Donald Trump showed how weak Rebuplican candidates were, claims political expert

American talk show host Charlie Wolf claims Donald Trump’s nomination for the White House merely demonstrated how weak the other Republican Party candidates were.

Trump ran a controversial campaign race but emerged victorious when his final rival, Ted Cruz, pulled out of the contest earlier this month.

The billionaire businessman admitted he 'has regrets' about his election campaign in an interview with Fox News presenter Megyn Kelly. He has an ongoing feud with her after making offensive comments towards the presenter.

He also revealed he 'had to fight his campaign this way' otherwise he wouldn't have been successful and, while Wolf agrees with that viewpoint, he believes it really showed up the other candidates for what they were.

The political commentator told Julia Hartley-Brewer: “I think he did [have to fight the campaign this way]. One of the things I thank him for is he showed just how weak the other candidates are.

"If these guys couldn't stand up to Donald Trump, how were they going to stand up to Putin?"

He also believes Trump's comments on banning Muslims from entering the USA were misinterpreted.

"People didn't really listen to what he said, he was talking about a temporary ban," he added. "I've not seen anything from people I know that know him, which says he's a racist."

And Wolf predicts Trump stands a good chance of winning the election because voters are able to put aside his private life aside and focus on his political agenda, which is not necessarily the case with White House rival, Hilary Clinton.

"I think he has a good chance of winning, they both have high negatives,” he said.

"The Evangelicals were more interested in our economy, they're able to put certain things aside, but with Hilary, people just don't like her."
