“It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans," Donald Trump said in 2004.

Before Donald Trump aligned himself with the Republican Party and ran for president, he said during an interview that the U.S. economy appears to do better under Democrats than it does under GOP leadership.

The 2004 clip was shared by columnist Mehdi Hasan on Twitter, RawStory noted, along with a link to a recent CNN article also featuring the quote.

“It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans,” Trump says in the clip. “Now it shouldn’t be that way, but if you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats.”
