Donald Trump has an ace in the hole for dealing with attacks from his Republican rivals

donald trump jeb bushAfter Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) released a video criticizing real-estate magnate Donald Trump for h..., Trump had a familiar response at the ready.

"Recently, Rand Paul called me and asked me to play golf," Trump said in a statement. "I easily beat him on the golf course and will even more easily beat him now, in the world in the politics."

Then he added: "Senator Paul does not mention that after trouncing him in golf I made a significant donation to the eye center with which he is affiliated."

Republican candidates are learning the hard way that Donald Trump has an ace in the hole when they come after him.

For one thing, they have probably dealt with him in the past — and there's a good chance they have asked him for money.

Since announcing his presidential campaign earlier this summer, Trump has traded barbs with many of his GOP rivals over immigration, foreign policy, and his conservative credentials.

But rather than engaging with them in detailed policy debates, the real-estate magnate has instead revealed embarrassing anecdotes about his personal relationships with the candidates, providing a somewhat unprecedented level of transparency into the interactions between politicians and the superrich.

Trump has the GOP right by the short hairs and I love it, they have lied to us for the last time. Next lets dump the Three Stooges, Obama, Bohner and McConnell

and the rest of the cartels.  With the exception of Mike Lee and Ted Cruz they betrayed us.

Let's dump them ALL...and institute a "no politician/no-lawyer Citizen Congress.

Someone commented that is exactly what our Founding Fathers meant.

Here, here! I AGREE!!!! This whole damn country has been turned into a filth slough BY LAWYERS!! And activist judges, who were attorneys first!! They brought us tyrannically FORCED gay marriage acceptance, and struck down the voter ID necessary to keep our elections sane, to name just two examples !

In other words - trump is one of the elitist Washington insiders. He's not the outsider he pretends to be.

I never saw the attacks on Obama on the part of the cartels, as vicious as they are attacking Trump.

What Trump is trying to tell us is .....that politicians can be bought and that he has bought them. He has said the system is broken....he is not a Washington insider....far from it. If he was an insider....he would not be taking a stand against them. Wise up.

Yes
He is well versed in buying and selling
Do you think for a minute that he will stop doing both as Pres?
THAT IS WHAT HE DOES.
You ain't seen nothing yet.
Just wait till he gets control of your tax $$$$

Triptolemus,

I think you are unaware that Donald Trump is and was a business man. He donated to anyone that he felt could help him, if he needed it.  That is smart business!! He also has had the nerve to tell that to all of us. I am a business man and totally understand why he would do that. It's called Capitalism. 

The best part now is, he has the money to run his own show and has stated many times that he don't need money from anyone to run for President. When was the last time you heard that from a politician??? NEVER!! He is right, those that take money from someone are beholding to them no matter how little. TRUMP CANNOT BE BOUGHT!!!

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

If he were an insider he would not be saying the system is broken.

Correct.

Donald Trump is far more intelligent and qualified to win the presidency of the United States than many believe.  Those (as in the GOP) who are trying to bash him will pay the price because he will reveal all the times they have come to him asking for money which they received from him, proof positive many in the GOP like most of the liberal left are more than intimate with the "rich and famous".  He is holding the ace and they'd better allow WE THE PEOPLE of the United States to decide who our next President will be.  They have done a miserable job trying to make that decision and they need to sit back and allow the laws of this land to be executed and the right person elected.  Donald Trump may not be elected but it should be the closest thing to him if not and that would be Ted Cruz.   Agree with Pahrumper, the next toy go and sooner than later are Boehner, McConnell and Obama (via impeachment).

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
