ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: At his Turnberry golf resort in western Scotland for the first day of the Women's Open, Donald Trump says on Thursday (July 30) "I think I'd get along very well with Vladimir Putin." "We would have such a great relationship with this part of the world and I think many parts of the world. I think I'd get along very well with Vladimir Putin. I just think so. People would say 'what do you mean?' I think I'd get along well with him," said Trump. A new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released shows nearly a quarter of Republicans surveyed said he would be their choice as the party's presidential nominee in 2016. He has opened up a double-digit lead over his closest rival, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who trails at 12 percent. And the presidential candidate says he'd make some necessary changes in Washington. "Certainly you want to be diplomatic. I mean, we're diplomatic in our country and everybody hates us all over the world... The world takes advantage of the United States on trade, on just about everything," Trump said.
