Donald Trump's decision to endorse Mitt Romney for president ultimately came down to the primary target of the real estate magnate's wrath: China.
While many had expected former House Speaker Newt Gingrich when Trump made his endorsementannouncement last week, he said Romney's views on China won the day.
In particular, Trump said he is impressed that the former Massachusetts governor would declare China a currency manipulator "if they don't change their ways very quickly."
"What they're doing with their currency is unbelievable," he said in a CNBC interview. "They are currency manipulators totally beyond anything that anybody's ever seen before and it makes it impossible or very, very hard for other countries to compete with their companies."
