Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said it’s been a little hard to say no to people who want to contribute to his presidential campaign since his whole life has been about money coming in.

“I look at the kind of money being given, and by the way, people are calling me wanting to put up big, big numbers for me — I don’t want it,” Mr. Trump said during an interview that aired during Wednesday’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News.

“Which is a little hard for me always, because my whole life has been taking money — that’s what I do, I make money,” he said. “I’m telling people no. I have no interest. People want to put up 5 million, they want to put up 7 million, they want to put up 1 million — I have no interest in it.”

Mr. Trump has touted his ability to self-fund his campaign as a reason that he can’t be bought by donors and special interests.

“I owe nothing to anybody,” he said. “The only one I owe is to the American people. I’m going to do a great job for them.”
