(CNSNews.com) – When pressed on what his specific plans will be to replace Obamacare, fix China, and create jobs, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told reporters at his press conference in Birch Run, Mich., Tuesday that voters should “trust” him.

“I think there has to be a trust,” Trump said in response to a reporter’s line of questioning on what his specific plans will be to achieve the goals of his campaign. “There actually has to be a trust. If you don’t trust, you’re not going to do very well.”

“You have said you’re gonna be great on women, you’re gonna be great on China, you’re gonna be great on ISIS, you’re gonna be great on jobs,” one reporter asked. “We haven’t heard of a lot of specifics, and I talked to people outside the venue today, and they say, ‘Where’s the meat on the bone?’ When are you gonna tell us what you’ll replace Obamacare with, how you will fix China, how you will bring jobs?

“Where’s the plan?” the reporter asked.

“I think you’re gonna see lots of plans, and you’re gonna see also— and you have to understand, when you’re coming up with a plan in business, you have to be flexible,” Trump said. “There’s gotta be flexibility.”

Trump talked about when he purchased the Trump National Doral in Miami.

“Everybody wanted. If I would have sat down and said, ‘Here’s a 12-point plan in order to get Doral.’ I didn’t do that. I went in and punched and punched and beat the hell out of people, and I ended up getting it. Everybody wanted it. All of the smart money wanted,” he said.

Trump also bought the Old Post Office Pavilion on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., a deal he said was “pretty shocking,” because he bought it during President Barack Obama’s tenure.

“I got it, because I know how to get things done. You can’t sit down and say, ‘Well, I’m gonna come up with a 19-point plan to get the Old Post Office and create it into a great hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, the most sought after property, I think in the history of the general services administration,” he said. “Trump got it. I’m not an Obama person. You probably heard that. You have to be able to have flexibility. You have to be able to do certain things.”

“Now you’re just asking people to trust you,” the reporter said.

“Well I think there has to be a trust. There actually has to be a trust. If you don’t trust, you’re not going to do very well,” Trump replied.
