Live from New York…Donald Trump makes it official; he is running for President in 2016.
The Donald made his presidential announcement from Trump Towers in New York and was in rare form. Although there were a multitude of outrageous Trumpisms, I managed to whittle my favorite moments down to three:
On the Trade Deal:
I’m going to tell you a couple of stories about trade because I’m totally against the trade bill for a number of reasons.
Number one, the people negotiating don’t have a clue. Our president doesn’t have a clue. He’s a bad negotiator.
He’s the one that did Bergdahl…We get a traitor. We get a no-good traitor, and they get the five people that they wanted for years, and those people are now back on the battlefield trying to kill us. That’s the negotiator we have.
Hey, I’m not saying they’re stupid. I like China. I sell apartments for— I just sold an apartment for $15 million to somebody from China. Am I supposed to dislike them? I own a big chunk of the Bank of America Building at 1290 Avenue of the Americas that I got from China in a war. Very valuable
On the Border:
I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.
Personally I find Trump’s perspective a refreshing change from politicians who rarely say what they mean, or mean what they say, but doubt his crass style will translate across the nation. I may be wrong, it happens…occasionally.
During Trump’s announcement, GOP presidential hopeful and businesswoman, Carly Fiorina entered the lion’s den to make her case for being the GOP nominee with the liberal ladies on The View.
While the ladies did their very best to trip up Fiorina by suggesting she is unqualified to run for president for never having held office, and against women because she is pro-life, Fiorina was not only unflappable, she was persuasive.
Fiorina is running a first rate campaign and continues to gain national attention, as well as momentum.
In last week’s Fox New’s 2016 GOP Power Index, Fiorina moved up to fourth place behind Bush, Rubio and Walker.
In my humble opinion, Carly Fiorina is THE one to watch in #2016.
