Donald Trump: You have to be wealthy in order to be great

From The Hill

Donald Trump declared Thursday that "you have to be wealthy in order to be great," while promising to add wealth to the country.

The comment from the billionaire businessman and presumptive GOP presidential nominee came during a speech in North Dakota while touting his economic ideas and decrying the "stealth tax" of crime in a speech on energy.

"There's one more thing that we must do to make America wealthy again, and you have to be wealthy in order to be great, I'm sorry to say," Trump said during his speech in Bismarck.

Donald I beg to differ.  There are a lot of people that were great and didn't have much money:

Harry Truman

Abraham Lincoln

Audie Murphy

Harriet Tubman  
Jesus Susan B Anthony

If you measure wealth by greatness there is something wrong with you.
