Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday predicted that “huge problems” will derail Hillary Clinton’s campaign, preventing her from emerging as the Democratic candidate for president. Trump, noting strong support in post-debate polling over the past week, also said he fully expects to win the GOP contest.
“It just looks like Hillary is going to not be able to run. It looks to me like that’s what’s going to happen,” Trump told Breitbart News. “I think it’s unlikely if you look at what she’s done. What she’s done is ten times worse than what General Petraeus did—far more sensitive documents, top-of-the-line sensitive documents, far more of them. What she did is ten times worse. It destroyed him, so I don’t see how she’s going to possibly be able to run. It’s pretty conclusive right now, too.”
Trump predicted Vice President Joe Biden will emerge as the Democratic nominee. Biden has so far said nothing about any 2016 plans. However, recent polling placed him third in New Hampshire behind Bernie Sanders and Clinton.

Trump, currently leading the race for the GOP’s presidential nomination next year in multiple national polls despite a controversial post-debate spat with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, said that voters see him as the antidote to what he called “incompetent politicians.”
“People in this country are really smart,” Trump said. “They’re tired of watching incompetent politicians. They get it. They get it. They’re tired of watching our country withering away under the leadership of incompetent people. They know I won’t let that happen. I’m not going to let China continue to destroy us. I’m not going to let Japan and Mexico and all of these countries continue to destroy us. They get it.”
