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.

Hillary Clinton says she is “deluged” with requests to try another run for president and has still not completely ruled out joining the crowded field of 2020 Democrat candidates.

The former U.S. Secretary of State has repeatedly avoided categorically stepping out of the race for the White House – or directly into it, for that matter.

During media appearances in the UK last month, Clinton twice hinted she may make a belated push on the basis she claims so many people want to see her on the national stage once more.

Speaking on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show in London last Friday, Clinton confirmed she would “have to make up my mind really quickly” if she was going to join the race.

When pushed to respond if she would make a run for the White House for a third time, she prevaricated and avoided a direct reply, instead responding with: “As I say, never, never, never say never.”

She did concede she would need to make up her mind “really quickly” about whether or not to jump into the presidential race.

Clinton has already missed the filing deadline for the first primary in New Hampshire but there is no deadline for the next caucuses in Iowa in early February.

Responding to Norton, Clinton said she had been “deluged” over the last few weeks thinking about running again, but added that, “right now, I’m not, at all, planning that.”

Norton asked: “The rumour mill is flying that you could step back into the ring.”

Clinton replied: “I hear that. I have been deluged the last few weeks with thinking about doing that, but right now I’m not at all planning that.”

Last month Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live she was under “enormous pressure” to consider a 2020 White House run.

When asked about her future in politics, Clinton said, “I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”

When asked if she is absolutely ruling it out, Clinton said, “ I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, are currently in London promoting their new co-authored book – The Book Of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories Of Courage And Resilience.
