    ABC News' Z. Byron Wolf (@zbyronwolf) reports:

    He’s not running for president, but Donald Trump still has opinions.

    He’s been tweeting quotes from his book “The Art of the Deal” to House Speaker John Boehner as the top Republican squares off with the White House on debt talks.

    “@johnboehner "Much as it pays to emphasize the positive, there are times when the only choice is confrontation." The Art of the Deal,” he wrote Tuesday.

    “@johnboehner Message for House GOP "The worst thing you can possibly do in a deal is seem desperate to make it." - The Art of the Deal,” he wrote last Friday.

    But while he wants Republicans to stand strong on spending cuts, he doesn’t want anything cut from Medicare.

    “House GOP wants to cut Medicare, Obama took $500 billion from Medicare for Obamacare. Both Wrong!” he tweeted Friday.

    But in a new video blog the real estate tycoon and reality tv star says he’s disgusted with Republicans who he suspects are getting ready to fold on the debt ceiling.

    “Its hard to believe, but the Republicans look like they’re about to fold again. They talk tough, but they don’t act tough. Its incredible. Look at what’s going on. It’s called ‘el foldo’."

    "They are going to do something with the debt ceiling. They could negotiate so strong. They could negotiate so powerfully. Right now they’re losing all their chips just like they did in December. They call it the ‘lame duck’ session, where they gave Obama everything he wanted and frankly they had all the cards. Right now they have all the cards and they’re going to give up their hand. I don’t believe what’s going on. And that’s one of the reasons I’m so disgusted with them."
