WASHINGTON (AP) — Potential presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Sunday he’s a better businessman than a leading Republican hopeful in 2012, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Mr. Trump told CNN’s “State of the Union” that he has a “much, much bigger net worth. I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney.”

Mr. Trump described Mr. Romney as a “small-business guy.” Mr. Trump said he’s created thousands of jobs and built a “great company.”

Mr. Romney is a former venture capitalist with a record of turning around failing companies. While heading Bain Capital, he helped launch the Staples office supply chain, as well as buy Domino’s Pizza. Mr. Romney invested more than $40 million of his own money in the 2008 presidential race.
