Donald Trump Says in Iowa: GOP Frontrunners Mitt Romney & Jeb Bush are Doomed to Lose … Regrets Not Having Run in 2012, ‘I Would’ve Won the Race Against Obama’
TRUMP HAS NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT MITT ROMNEY AND JEB BUSH …
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, Donald Trump said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose. The Donald also went on to say that he regretted that he hadn’t run himself in 2012. Although it is easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, Trump is
47% 100% correct on a couple of issues. One, Romney had his chance against a weak, unpopular president in 2012 and failed. Romney failed because he tried to back into the victory, rather than play offense and win the game. Two, “we’re Bushed out,” especially when Jeb Bush is for “common core” and is pro ‘illegal” amnesty. Much like what Se. Ted Cruz had stated, Romney and Bush represent the “mushy middle” and have no chance of winning.
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.
Trump said he should be in the White House right now.
Trump said he’s not sure which of the potential GOP 2016ers he’d prefer right now, but he’s certain it would be a mistake for Romney to seek a third term.
“He failed. He choked. He’s like a deal-maker that didn’t close the deal. He shouldn’t be running again. He had a great opportunity to win against a president that was absolutely lame, and he didn’t do it. … The 47 percent statement, which was a disaster, is not going away. Romneycare is not going away. All of his problems are not going away. He should get out and get out quickly.”
As for Bush, a former governor of Florida whose family has sent two men to the White House, Trump said: “Frankly we’ve had enough of the Bushes. We’re bushed out.”
At Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend, Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush saying they are just not the answer for Republicans. Trump said as to the Presidential election in 2016 and who should be running for the GOP, “It can’t be Mitt because Mitt ran and failed.” Trump further went on to say, “the last thing we need is another Bush. Truer words have ever been spoken and imagine that, they come from The Donald. The last thing the GOP needs in 2016 is an establishment candidate that is more Democrat-like than that who would be in favor of Republican principles and the platform. Donald Trump stated in Iowa that he would “build a beauty of a fence along the southern border.” Whether Trump would or not, or whether he would even give up the perks of his private life to run for president, is irrelevant. What is relevant is that we cannot have another loser, establishment, mushy middle candidate in the form of John McCain or Mitt Romney as the standard bearer.
CBS News: Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush:
“It can’t be Mitt, because Mitt ran and failed,” Trump said.
Trump said he liked Romney, formerly a governor of Massachusetts, but he suggested Romney’s infamous “47 percent” comments and his affiliation with a Massachusetts health care reform plan akin to Obamacare should disqualify him.
Plus, Romney “choked” in 2012, failing to unseat Obama in an election that Republicans could have won, Trump argued.
“You can’t have Bush,” Trump added. “The last thing we need is another Bush.”
Trump criticized Bush’s support of common core federal education standards, and he panned Bush’s comment that many illegal immigrants come to the United States as an “act of love” to help their families.
“Half of these people are criminals,” Trump said. “They’re coming for a lot of other reasons, and it’s not love.”
Trump also suggested the unpopularity Jeb Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, helped usher President Obama into office: “His brother really gave us Obama.”
Trump offered an ambitious preview of his prospective presidential agenda. ” If I run for president, and if I win, I would totally succeed in creating jobs, defeating ISIS, and stopping the Islamic terrorists… reducing the budget deficit… securing our southern border… stopping nuclear weapons in Iran and elsewhere… saving Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid without cutting it down to the bone… repealing Obamacare and replacing it with something far better.”
Donald Trump Warns GOP at Family Leadership Summit in Iowa … Immigration Bill (Amnesty) “Could Be a Death Wish’ for Republican Party”
Does it really take Donald Trump to state the obvious for Republicans to get a clue? Obviously, it does.
Donald Trump spoke at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa on Saturday and warned the GOP of the dangers of passing immigration reform. The event was organized by The Family Leader, a Christian conservative organization. Donald Trump warned the GOP that the proposed immigration bill will be a “death wish” for the Republican Party. Trump went on to say that border security is a must. The Donald is correct. For anyone, especially Republicans, who thinks that the 11 to 15 million illegals in the United States are going to vote for the GOP, you are delusional. For any one who thinks at the illegals will be tax payers are delusional as well. We already have a bout 50% of Americans who do not pay federal income taxes, what category do you think illegals will fall? Let alone the additional subsidies, welfare, food stamps and other entitlement programs. We cannot afford the current welfare state, how are we going to be able to afford the one with 11+ million more illegals and the rest that pour over the border that a government refuses to protect?
Donald Trump on Saturday made his first-ever political visit to Iowa, speaking to conservative Christians, stoking speculation about his political plans and labeling the United States a “laughingstock” during an interview with NBC News.
He warned the Family Leadership Summit in an evening speech that Republicans will have a “really tough” time in the 2016 presidential race if Hillary Clinton runs. He said the Senate’s immigration bill “could be a death wish” for the Republican Party but insisted the GOP has to do “the right thing.” And he bragged about buying the old Post Office building in Washington: “You have the White House, you have Congress and I’m building right in the middle!”
Hat Tip Video – The Gateway Pundit
“People come in illegal. You need border security. It all starts. Either you have a country or you don’t. It’s very simple. You either have a country or you don’t. And having a country starts with security at your borders … Now, when it comes to immigration you have to do the right thing. You have to. In your own heart you’re dealing with lives, you’re dealing with human beings. You have to do the right thing. But it’s gotta be done in a very smart and methodical method. The Republicans, let’s say, I hear 11 million illegals. Well, I hear the number could be much higher than that. If you do something where they get a vote just remember, and I think I was the first one to say it. I don’t know if you remember, I said this a long time ago when it first came up. Every one of those people, virtually, will be voting Democratic. Do what’s right but be careful. It could be a death wish for the Republican Party.”
Amnesty for illegals will not only be the death of the Republican party, it will be the death of the United States as we know it. Imagine this, we already have an unsustainable welfare states, now we are going to add another 11 million to it and make matters worse? The point of a responsible immigration policy is to let the right people in to sustain the country, not add 90% low income workers just because the entered our country illegally and broke our laws.
Imagine allowing 11 million new Democrat voters into America who become part of the “what can the government give me” class. How could the GOP ever win another election?
The Trump Card … Donald Trump to Endorse Newt Gingrich? Third Party Run? Who Knows (UPDATE: Trump Endorses Romney}
THE TRUMP CARD GETS HIMSELF MEDIA ATTENTION, AGAIN.
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 Malkin.com 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.
Donald Trump, the Apprentice, Opportunist, Shameless Self Promoter …
According to ABC News, Donald Trumps minions are exploring a potential third party run for The Donald for the Presidency in 2012. Trump did not want to go through the process of a primary and have his past, finances, tax returns, multiple bankruptcies, marriages and past positions and comments fodder to be dissected by other candidates or the media in debates, but he wants the pass and run as a third party. Nice.
Third Party Candidate … Don’t for get to watch the Apprentice
ABC News’ Huma Khan and Jennifer Wlach report:
Donald Trump’s top political adviser told ABC News he’s speaking to “high-level political operatives” to explore a third-party presidential bid on behalf of the real estate mogul, in a sign that Trump may not quite be done with the 2012 presidential race just yet.
“I can confirm that over the past two weeks I have spoken with many high-level political operatives, campaign managers, finance directors — some of whom I have spoken to in the past. Most are new people from all over the country,” said Michael Cohen, executive vice president at the Trump Organization and special counsel to the reality-TV star.
The Donald continues to shamelessly self-promote himself and his TV show at the expense of a Presidential primary. How pathetically sad. This egotists knows damn well that if he ran as a third party candidate that it would mean sure victory and reelection for Barack Obama. If Donald Trump actually does run in 2012, we will then know what his true politics really are. Honestly, I think its more to keep his name in the news and free PR for his TV show, The Apprentice.
