Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Saturday lashed out at the idea that he should act more “presidential,” saying he’s done so well because he’s not acting like other politicians.

During a rally in Waterbury, Conn., Trump said he has been trying to follow the advice of family members and aides who told him to be more presidential, but now, “people are starting to say, ‘wait a minute, look what got you here.’ ”

{mosads}Trump compared his situation to a baseball player of golfer who succeeds with an unorthodox approach, and then is suddenly told to “change your swing.”

“And you never hear from them again, that’s the last time, right?”

Trump drew attention in recent weeks for softened rhetoric, with some attributing his change of tone to newly-arrived campaign leader Paul Manafort.
