Trump says he'd consider investing in Detroit


NOVI, Mich.  — Donald Trump says Detroit is “on the right path” and he’d consider investing there.

The billionaire real estate magnate’s comments came Tuesday. He was in the suburb of Novi to speak to Oakland County Republicans.

Trump told Republicans at the Lincoln Day Dinner they have a difficult road to win back the White House. He also highlighted efforts of Republican Gov. Rick Snyder to help the state’s economy, saying Snyder is “doing a fantastic job” and should win a second term.

Other speakers included Snyder, who encouraged attendees to get excited about the GOP.

Trump is an outspoken critic of President Obama who flirted with a presidential run in 2012, and he recently told The Associated Press his decision against running was a “mistake” because he “would have won.”
