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.

THOSE THAT CAN DO, DO! THOSE THAT CAN’T, RUN FOR ELECTION TO CONGRESS!

We now have a can do candidate, and those can’t do elite political class establishment self serving cartel members of government are busy saying he can’t because they can’t and have not done it when they promised to do it in the last election. They say it because they can’t and don’t want to honor their commitments for many untold reasons.

Just because they can’t do it does not mean Trump cannot do it. There are many ways to skin a snake and many good intelligent men and women in this country that have a can do attitude can do it.

Just because they are not smart enough to determine an effective/efficient method to complete a task or because it is not in their best financial interest does not mean the intelligent people of the United States cannot get it done!

We the people of the United States have done many things they were told could not be done. Many can remember when John F. Kennedy said we would put a man on the Moon. There were those that said it could not be done. Like Trump said the Great Wall of China was built in the days when the equipment we have today did not exist and they build a much longer/larger wall that is a beautiful marvel of the world and it protected the Chinese for many years.

We need a can do person in the White House we can no longer afford a silly liar that is a can’t do person in charge of our military, economy, problems, immigration, budget, debt, jobs, health care, defense and a person that is not protecting the country from Iran but is allowing them to build a weapon that will eventually destroy major cities in the United States.

Everyone must get out the vote for Trump….. A Can Do President that can Fix the mess Obama has gotten us in to! Email your friends and neighbors and tell them we must elect a can do President before it is too late to save the nation!

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.
