Jersey City - Donald Trump says he made "a lot of money" in a deal years ago with Moammar Gadhafi, despite suggesting at the time he had no idea the former Libyan dictator was involved in renting his suburban New York estate.
In an appearance on CBS's "Face the Nation" that aired on Sunday, Trump says: "Don't forget, I'm the only one. I made a lot of money with Gaddafi, if you remember."
Trump said Gadhafi "had to make a deal with me because he needed a place to stay."
He says Gadhafi "never got to stay there. And it became sort of a big joke."
He was discussing a bizarre 2009 incident when Gadhafi was desperately seeking a place to pitch his Bedouin-style tent during a visit to the UN General Assembly.
