Quote of the Day: Donald Trump Can’t Make a Deal

Donald Trump has been continually claiming that he would be a great president because he can make the best deals. He says it over and over again: he’s the dealmaker. He should be president because he is uniquely qualified to make all of these awesome deals with people like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un that no one has ever been able to make before. However, considering that Ted Cruz has been able to make better deals than Trump has right here in the United States, it calls into question Trump’s whole narrative. Where was the genius dealmaking in Colorado, Donald? Cruz out-organized him there, scooping up tons of delegates, which has — surprise! — left Donald Trump throwing yet another tantrum.

“I’ve gotten millions … of more votes than [Sen. Ted] Cruz, and I’ve gotten hundreds of delegates more, and we keep fighting, fighting, fighting, and then you have a Colorado where they just get all of these delegates, and it’s not [even] a system,” Trump said, during the Fox News broadcast. “There was no voting. I didn’t go out there to make a speech or anything. There’s no voting.”

… “They offer them trips — they offer them all sorts of things, and you’re allowed to do that,” Trump said, of the method by which some woo delegates. “I mean, you’re allowed to offer trips, and you can buy all these votes. What kind of a system is this? Now, I’m an outsider, and I came into the system and I’m winning the votes by millions of votes. But the system is rigged. It’s crooked.”

Trump knew months and months ago that Colorado had changed its system. And as Allah points out, it was to prevent an outsider candidate like Ted Cruz from winning after they were embarrassed by Santorum’s upset over Mitt Romney in 2012. The difference is that Trump continued to be lazy with his campaign, relying on his free advertising courtesy of the mainstream media, while Cruz got to work, wooing delegates at each individual district. Trump… distributed error-ridden fliers. Multiple times.

Trump continued his whining on Twitter:

Except the rules were clear and publicly available. Donald the Dealmaster couldn’t make a good deal, simply because he wasn’t willing to put in the effort to actually make the deal. He expects everyone in America to just bow down and kiss his ring, without him having to do anything to earn it. His arrogance is disturbing enough, but when you couple it with his apathy, it’s shocking. It’s not that he didn’t know what his team needed to do; he did and just chose not to do it, and then cried foul when things played out exactly the way everyone told him it would.

What makes it painfully funny is that Trump complains about Cruz wooing delegates too well. The guy who wrote The Art of the Deal is complaining that Cruz wooed people too well! What happened, Donald? Did you lose the book? Forget how to gain power and influence people? He’s known about these rules since August. He’s had plenty of time to prepare. If he’s so great at making deals and winning people over, coupled with his talent for hiring the best people ever, then how did he get outdealed?

Quite frankly, Trump’s inability to handle simple campaign rules that have been available to him for nine months now should call into question his ability to govern. If he can’t handle running a competent campaign, then how on earth can he handle the actual presidency? But of course, we all know that his supporters won’t care. Who needs facts when you’ve got bluster?

    Poor Donald. He’s hit a bad patch and isn’t handling it well at all which is even more evidence of his unsuitability to hold the most powerful political position in the world. We’ve already got a pres who sulks and pouts and has temper tantrums when thwarted and he’s managed to lose the US the respect and trust of our friends and show our enemies they’ve nothing to fear from us. What will Donald add? Outright hostilities?

    I don’t think he knew the rules of the various state conventions. I don’t think he cared because he doesn’t think rules apply to HIM. He calculated he could just storm the bastions with his mob of group-think robots and the RNC would surrender to him (as they have to Obama). His corp. is “lending” his campaign money, leasing the jet and other amenities to his campaign. But he’s running it on a relative shoestring making me wonder just how much he’s exaggerated his worth (in dollars). Seems he’s counting on the RNC to reimburse his campaign, too at (I’ve no doubt overinflated charges) then open the coffers to finance his actual run. How disappointed he must be to discover that the “establishment” still isn’t trying to ‘kiss his ring’ and prepare to anoint him their king. What a blow to his yuge pathologically narcissistic ego.

    “make a deal”? He can’t even make a deal with the RNC, supposedly his own Party, which as nominee, he would be the head.
