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.

Share it...widely.....

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).

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
