"So while we're there, you probably read it, it was at Drudge, who's great by the way," The Donald stated. "Drudge is amazing. But the story on Drudge – and big story, it's all over the place now – guys swimming across, and big bags of stuff, it's drugs, swimming across the river, swimming right across, and they put the drug,"

"I refuse to be comped in Vegas, attend a White House Dinner, or live in any property owned by Donald Trump," Drudge wrote.
