The Trump Card … Donald Trump to Endorse Newt Gingrich? Third Party Run? Who Knows (UPDATE: Trump Endorses Romney}



The Donald has once again grabbed the media spot light and has announced that he has a a major announcement in Las Vegas today. It is being reported byKLAS-TV8 that Donald Trump is going to endorse Newt Gingrich. The announcement is slated to “pertain to the presidential race, according to a statement from Trump’s office. Gingrich claims he has no idea what Trump is going to say. Man he has a way of continually bring attention to himself doesn’t he.  Just curious, when did Donald trump become politically relevant?

An advisor to Donald Trump says he will make a major announcement in Las Vegas tomorrow. Sources tell the 8 News NOW I-Team Trump will endorse Newt Gingrich.

According to Trump advisor Michael Cohen, “Donald J. Trump will be making a major announcement tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. at Trump International Hotel & Tower, Las Vegas, Nevada… The announcement will pertain to the Presidential race.”

One might ask themselves why would Donald Trump get involved at this point in the GOP Presidential primary and endorse Newt, especially after Gingrich was just hammered in the Florida primary? Doug Powers at Michelle has come up with some plausible reasons why The Donald wants the media attention. Maybe there will be a subliminal message flashing in the back ground that says, “YOU MUST WATCH THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE”.  What are the chances that Trump will make a reference during his announcement that the new Apprentice show begins in two weeks? It is free advertizing after all.

… Trump might also pitch the next season of Celebrity Apprentice while announcing an endorsement for Rick Santorum or Ron Paul. Another possibility is that Trump will announce plans for a new show called “The GOP Candidate Apprentice”…

My take is if Trump does endorse Newt Gingrich, who because of not being on so many primary ballots has more than an up hill climb for the required delegates, The Donald is doing it to set up a potential third party run. Its a win-win for Trump. This was he can say either at the end of the GOP primary, my candidate won, look at me, I am so relevant, I am a king makers. Or if Romney wins, he can then say, I am running as a third party as I do not think that Mitt is right for America and still put himself out there is the MSM limelight. Of course, any third party run by Trump is a victory for Obama.

UPDATE I: Looks like all the so-called pundit politicos in the know got it wrong … TRUMP endorses Mitt Romney. That is correct, The Donald picks Romney. As the Daily Caller opines, there are some with quite a bit of egg on their face.

In the end, The Donald went with what he is perceiving as the sure thing.

      A third party run by Trump or Gingrich could be a win.If Gingrich stays in the GOP, he has little chance of becoming the nominee, if he were to luck out, he would never win a general election and get the majority vote in the USA. A third party backed by Sheldon Aledson’s/Trumps money, Trumps flamboyant ways and business contacts, Newts oratory powers they would be hard to stop. The candidate would only have to get 37 to 39 % of the vote. A third party would draw Dem’s that don’t like Obama, most Independents, a lot of Ron Paul Republicans, some Republicans who don’t like the fact the GOP has been hijacked by the self righteous bible thumping religious fanatics and the tea bagging lunatics, Libertarians and all people voting all other parties to help a third party, some Republicans who are politically savvy enough to know that a vote for a Republican is a wasted vote therefore they vote third party so their vote counts against Obama, and those rebels and anarchists who just want to shake up this outdated corporate controlled two party system. The country is right for a third party but it has to be backed by very wealthy individuals. The GOP is split, some Dem’s don’t like Obama and the economy is in the tank. A third party need to be populist built on the idea of rebuilding America, bring back manufacturing, rebuilding the crumbling infrastructure, revisiting all failed free trade agreements and renegotiating them into fair trade agreements. No planks in the platform on social issues, let those stay with the reactionary political ideology of Republican party. Americans, shed the chains of corporate control of the corrupt two party system. Our representatives are owned by corporate through lobbyists, We can turn the government back over to the people by limiting all political office terms to 6yr.No more lobbyist, pensions, seniority, the politicians have to go back and face the people after 6yr. All would be on a 6yr term 2yr rotation with a third coming up for election every two years.There would be no big deal because the reps could devote all their time on their work not trying to raise money and get re-elected.We need to have public financing of all elections so we take it out of the wealthy, corporations, labor unions, PAC’s, etc. GO THIRD PARTY

      Trump worships the golden calf. Born into a wealthy family.

      I think Trump made a very wise move on endorsing Romney. Trump is a very intelligent, overwhelming successful man. He’s expressed himself numerous times on the fears of what’s going to become of our country and the economy. I think he will be of great assistance to Romney to help us get back on track and in the right direction.

      I don’t know why some people are all bent out of shape over the comment on the poor people. He is right, they do have a safety net, food stamps, medicaid, housing vouchers, welfare, ADC, much more than the middle class receives. The middle class have lost their jobs, their homes, worked hard all their life and have lost everything.

      People need to knock off their s***! We have a country to put back together.
