Washington - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump often says that he could act more presidential than any other candidate. But he said on Monday that wouldn't be nearly as much fun.

Trump told a rally crowd gathered in an open plane hangar in frigid northern Wisconsin that if he were to act too presidential, "only about 20 % of you would be here, because it would be boring as hell."

Trump said his wife, Melania, and daughter, Ivanka, had both urged him to be more presidential and tone down his attacks, especially on the debate stage.

But Trump said he still needed to take care of the "leftovers": his two remaining Republican rivals, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, before he shifts his tone.

He added: "Let me be un-presidential just for a little while longer."
