CAVUTO: Do you think that we can afford to do without one of the Big Three?

TRUMP: No. I think you should have the Big Three. I think, frankly, they should do dip financing. I think the government should stand behind them 100 percent. You cannot lose the auto companies. They’re great. They make wonderful products. Maybe they’re making too much. Maybe they’re not making too much. I mean, I just bought a Dodge Ram truck from Arrigo Dodge, who’s a member of one of my clubs and great guy. (Fox News, 12/17/08)
