Trump: I’m not ‘a big fan’ of ‘big sunbathes’

“I like to go out in the sun.

I think it’s a great thing, and I’m a big fan of it,” Trump said during a Monday interview on “Fox & Friends.”

“But it’s something that I do because I think the country needs it.”

Trump has repeatedly criticized the practice of wearing swimsuits, even calling for a ban on wearing them.

In 2013, Trump and then-candidate Mitt Romney were photographed in an off-camera tanning session, which featured a shirtless Trump and Romney wearing shorts and a swimsuit.

“I think we need to get back to basics,” Trump told ABC News in 2013.

“And, I think we’re going to get it back to what it was.

The fact is, the sun is beautiful.

And, I like to be in the shade, and be with the people.”
