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.

Democratic party got taken over by the slime machine that now exists in Washington.

Dempublicans masquerading as normal people.

They all have a 'mental disorder' it's called greed and wonton.

Yeah . . . . Rand lost me a couple of years ago

After trump promised Gingrich his support for president, and Gingrich announced he had trumps support, trump called a news conference and announced his support for Romney. The next day the Washington politicians gave trump the development rights on the Old Post Office building in Washington. trump looks like a liberal toady who was bought and paid for. That's what he is. He's been supporting liberals and their causes for years, buying and collecting favors with the best lobbyists and cronies from K st. Wake up is good advice; but you people won't follow it.

You KEEP saying Trump promised Gingrich support, you won't provide ANY resources for that statement, and I haven't found ANY, except that Gingrich CLAIMS he did.  HOW DO YOU KNOW TRUMP PROMISED HIM THAT?

Gingrich was fighting for conservative principles before Reagan was elected. He's been around long enough to know better than to announce he had support when it wasn't promised. Obviously trump conned Gingrich like he's conning people now.

Trump's involvement in a pyramid scheme and his Clinton like blame shifting and denial of responsibility for fleecing thousands of people on a bogus business deal proves trump is a typical Washington politician. I've supplies plenty of information on this. Research Trump, pyramid scheme, and ACN - you'll find it too.

Listening to your kind of theories....wouldn't surprise me if you believe in the magic bullet too.

Marilyn - you promised not to read my posts because they upset you too much; stick to your promise.

That's not EXACTLY what I said...  If you can't take the heat---

Trump received millions for promoting this scam. Thousands of poor naïve people were scammed out of their savings. Trump's philosophy: If god did not want them sheared, he would not have made them sheep. We don't want this clown as president.

I know it the same way I know you are an ignorant fool - it's obvious.

I just love Judge Judy... However, as a member of the male race I would not want to have her as my judge.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
