Trump: Not toning it down

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — A confident Donald Trump says he's "not toning it down," a day after his chief adviser assured Republican officials the GOP front-runner will show more restraint.

Trump received huge cheers from a crowd of 3,000 in Waterbury, Connecticut Saturday, when he asked, "Isn't it nice that I'm not one of these teleprompter guys?"

Trump said it's "very easy to be presidential," before making a series of faux serious faces.

The New York businessman is leading his GOP rivals in Tuesday's primary in Connecticut, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll. He said he likes his chances in Connecticut and the other four primary states.

Known for his over-the-top persona, Trump assured the crowd he can be serious but said that he's got to be different "talking to you people."
