Trump Blasts Yeltsin




WASHINGTON -- Billionaire developer Donald Trump, who is considering a run for the U.S. presidency, called President Boris Yeltsin "a disaster'' and "one tough hombre'' who suffers from "a major alcohol problem.''


In a wide-ranging interview Sunday on CNN, Trump said he will decide by February whether to run for president. He said his Reform Party colleague, Pat Buchanan, has "no hope'' of winning.


As president, Trump said he would probably stop U.S. aid to Russia. He contended Russia is using the aid "on developing more nuclear'' weapons.
