O’Sullivan recalled Trump’s words, saying, “He even said it to me, he said when he decided to go back up to Bristol, I said ‘Why are you doing that?’ And he went ‘I learned all I needed to learn off of you, the job was done. I knew there was nothing left for me to learn, so it’s time for me to go back to my family in Bristol.'”
