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.

The Republican 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!!

BREAKING: White House Makes ANOTHER Move
Supporting Roy Moore … Liberals In PANIC !!

(TeaParty.org) – While the lamestream media has criticized President Donald Trump for his silence on the accusations surrounding Republican candidate Roy Moore, and also claimed that his silence is proof of his disapproval of the senatorial hopeful, insiders in the White House issued a second statement confirming their support.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney on Monday affirmed that the Trump administration’s stance on the issue is that Alabama voters should cast their vote for Judge Moore despite the allegations that he performed sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old in his 30s, the Hill reports.

“I don’t think it’s making any news to think that a Republican administration is going to want someone in the Senate who is going to vote for a Republican agenda and if they elect a Democrat to that office that’s not going to happen,” Mulvaney said during a segment of Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”

Previous support for Moore came from the White House when aide Kellyanne Conway told Alabama voters not to vote for the fake “conservative” Democrat Doug Jones, claiming a vote for him “will be a vote against tax cuts” on “Fox & Friends.” She added that the Democrat, despite his self-styled label, is “weak on crime, weak on borders,” all but implying that they should choose Moore instead.

Even the Crooked News Network is waking up and realizing that Trump did not, in fact, fall for their smear campaign against Moore:

“By refusing to intervene ahead of Alabama’s December 12 special election, Trump is rejecting Senate Republican leaders’ view that a Moore victory would bring disastrous consequences for the GOP’s brand and needs to be stopped at all costs.”

Initially when asked, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement that said the administration was holding back any judgement or endorsement, and trusted the people of Alabama to decide on the allegations facing Moore. But it’s become clear – and a relief to Trump-supporters in the state – that the president is going to welcome and support one of the only senators who will actually back his agenda.

Marc Short, legislative director, caving in to the pressure of badgering liberal reporters, suggested that Trump wasn’t campaigning for Moore because of doubts surrounding the candidate’s innocence.

“If he did not believe that the women’s accusations were credible he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore. He has not done that,” Short said. Clearly, Short had no idea what he was talking about at the time.

While the president has yet to officially endorse Moore, during a briefing with reporters on Monday, Sanders issued a new statement that resonated with tones of approval for the Alabama Republican, reports CNBC.

“The president wants people in the House and Senate who support his agenda,” Sanders said. Since there are absolutely no other candidates in the race who support the president’s agenda, this is obviously an endorsement for Moore. Trump wants people in his government who are true Republicans, not Democrats or RINOs, no matter what nasty rumors liberal slimeballs spread about them.
