TRUMP SAYS IT WILL DEPEND ON HOW “REPUBLICANS” TREAT HIM

|| By FITSNEWS || One of the very first questions we posed to Donald Trump‘s political team (way back in January) involved the possibility of an independent bid for the presidency of the United States.

From our column …

Wouldn’t his wealth, celebrity and outspokenness be much better suited for an independent presidential bid? Especially seeing as such broad swaths of the GOP electorate dissatisfied with its leaders and ready to bolt?

Seriously … is he not looking at the same polls we are?  Ones that show surging support for independent voters?

At the time, Trump’s team said he was focused on the GOP primary …

Mr. Trump is a Republican. He is seriously considering a run for the presidency as a Republican,” Trump advisor Sam Nunberg told FITS. “Mr. Trump has broad and wide appeal across the GOP ideological spectrum. He believes in a strong economy through free market solutions, tax cuts, repealing Obamacare on day one, a strong and well-funded military, life, traditional marriage, protecting the Second Amendment and making sure that we keep our commitments toward taking care of veterans and their families.”

Fast forward six months to this week, when Trump gave an interview to The Hill saying the incessant GOP attacks against him could prompt him to run for president as an independent.

“The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy,” Trump told The Hill.  “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

According to Trump, his decision will be based on “how I’m being treated by the Republicans.”

So far, he’s being treated pretty poorly.  In fact just this week former Texas governor Rick Perry assailed Trump as “a toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense” and “a cancer on conservatism.”

Whoa …

“I’m not in the gang. I’m not in the group where the group does whatever it’s supposed to do,” Trump told The Hill. “I want to do what’s right for the country – not what’s good for special interest groups that contribute, not what’s good for the lobbyists and the donors.”

We’ve written a good deal about the forces propelling Trump’s candidacy … as well as the mass establishment freakout his campaign has spawned.  On a larger scale, it’s reminiscent of the GOP response to the insurgent 2012 campaign of Ron Paul.

Whatever one thinks of Trump or Paul, the bottom line is their anti-establishment campaigns threaten the sanitized, tightly controlled narrative our two-party system – and the corporate interests and legacy media propping it up – wish to perpetuate.

And that’s a good thing …

Personally we hope Trump runs as an independent.  Frankly, we remain shocked that he (or for that matter Paul’s son, U.S. Rep. Rand Paul) ever sought the “Republican” nomination in the first place.  As liberal “Republicans” John McCain and Mitt Romney have demonstrated, that nomination isn’t worth a damn.

Like the GOP itself.

True, part of this “threat” is that he may be wanting to force the RNC into being more “nice” to him. But remember, Trump’s measures are different than the rest of the field (in particular Jeb, Walker, Rubio, Cruz, Kasich, Christie, Graham, Perry). They are career politicians who measure their actions against the commodity of political capital (i.e. their polling margins or net positive/negative ratings and what a certain action will cost them in that margin). Trump on the other hand, measures his costs in “brand.” Regardless of what the RNC does or doesn’t do, if he believes that he’s spent “brand” capital in this venture, and sees that an independent bid will help him recapture any lost “brand” value, he’ll do it.

Fits – Trump is the King of Crony Capitalism, and given that that is the overarching there here, you should be leading the charge to repudiate Trump. He curries favors with Democrats with campaign contributions, as well as Republicans, and gives to the Clinton Foundation, for access to Clinton, Inc. In other words, he is a political whore so long as it puts money in his pocket, or feeds his megalomania.

The next President will either be Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Get on board or accept the consequences. Trump is unlikely to run as a third party, even if he does not win the nomination. But if he is not the winner, the winner will either be a Republican establishment candidate (Jeb) or a Koch Brothers sock puppet. Hillary will defeat either.

GOTRUMP July 23, 2015 at 10:11 am

Trump is under assault from both sides of the party. The Republican Establishment hate him because he threatens their power. The Koch Brothers hate him because he can’t be bought, and they have already paid for their candidates. So both sides are blasting away at him now. They have even brought Fox into the picture. For the past two days they have been doing nothing but anti-Trump commentary. So I guess old Rupert isn’t so happy about a change in the GOP power structure either.
The people who thought they were in control of the Republican party are scared. Trump won’t play their game. He wont do what he is told and say what he is told to say. He is his own man, and what he is saying the people like. He is going to win the nomination despite all their efforts.

If you REALLY think Trump would make a good prez then you are the one that has shit for brains and are proving McCain correct in his assertion that is the tin-foil hat wearing schlubs that are eating the peanuts out of Trump’s turds.
No doubt Christie probably ain’t going anywhere but I’d still like to see him smack the shit out of your cowardly boy Trump and watch him hold his mouth and run off the stage like the little girl he is. Christie wouldn’t have anything to lose and a lot to gain by knocking the shit out of that coward’s ass.
Putin would LOVE to see Trump as prez. He’d make a big move within 6 months of Trump being in office. That’s why Bin Laden made his move because Bush II had been in office for a little over 9 months so he really had not gotten settled in.

sparklecity July 23, 2015 at 4:11 pm

Didn’t say that. Just said Putin will make his move quicker IF that coward Trump is prez. Possibly Iran as well since Trump has said we needed to NEGOTIATE harder with Iran. They’ll come at him so fast he won’t know what hit him until its too fucking late. he don’t know jack shit about the military. All he is used to is having ass-kissers say “how high” when he wants them to jump. The
Cruz wouldn’t know which end is up because he would be too busy determining how many angels can dance on the edge of the paper the Constitution is printed on, Walker will need the nod of the Koch Brothers before he would do anything, Jeb just MIGHT stand up to Putin and Iran. Hillary is ruthless so she just might stand up to Putin as well (but that don’t mean I’m voting for her because I ain’t)
All you (and like other gullible minded right wingnuts who have nowhere else to go) are doing is blindly saying TRUMP-TRUMP-TRUMP-TRUMP with only blind loyalty to a coward because he tells you what you have so desperately been wanting to hear because things ain’t going your way.
This coward (like the coward Rush Limpballs) makes a living by running his loud mouth and being a bombastic dick for right wingnuts to lap up like so many kittens to a saucer of milk.
And that dear GOTRUMP is a fine example of blind loyalty to the right wingnut conservative dogma if there ever was one!

There is definitely something going on in the President race, both parties.
Trump sits is atop the Republican Party, while frustrating and embarrassing the other wannabes in his party. No one ever saw that coming. And he got there by saying and doing things the others thought to be politically lethal.
Hillary has become “the lady in waiting” for the democrats. Restricting her availability to the public and press, not addressing major issues, trying to shrug off the bad press from mail servers, Clinton foundation, Benghazi, a lackluster performance as Secretary of State, etc. She is playing a game that now has her fellow Democrats contemplating Bernie Sanders or Walter O’Malley and sometimes Jim Webb.
The Democrats are descending, while the Republicans are vectoring upward. A recent Quinnipac poll showed HRC trailing Rubio, Bush, and Walker in three swing states, Colorado, Iowa, and Virginia.
It may be a temporary situation or it could be a continuation of the electorate’s dissatisfaction with the Democrats of 2014, overdosed on the Clinton’s, perceive her as a continuation of the Obama disaster, etc. Time will tell, but as of now, the Republicans have to be elated, while the Democrats are looking for answers.(the dems my not even know what the question is at this point)

Reply
Rocky July 23, 2015 at 10:26 am

What’s hurting Hillary right now is the sequestration her campaign is adhering too. The GOP attacks her from time to time, and she doesn’t fire back, or make much of an appearance. But, remember, the Clinton’s are masters at this game. They likely are waiting until they get closer to October / November before she starts to make more public announcements and statements. She has room in the polls to do that, for now. So her poll numbers suffer a little now, but she’s counting on being able to reverse that with a PR blitz later, when the GOP is consumed with their own internal fights.

No that is not always the answer. But you wing nuts will not listen. You have been so bamboozled by the right wing echo chamber saying the same thing over and over that you no longer listen to anything else or anyone else’s opinion.

Government does not have to be bigger. It just needs to shift priorities, from one of making rich people richer to making the middle class richer. When the middle class prospers, everyone rich and poor are better off.

The rich will still be fabulously wealthy. Maybe not as wealthy as if they lived in a country dedicated solely to making them richer, but still wealthy beyond the dreams of 99% of people in the world.

If Trump runs as an independent he will split the conservative vote and guarantee Hillary’s election. Trump will need the hardcore republican vote as well as the moderate republican vote to go along with independent voters to get elected. Hillary will need the same from her party plus the independent vote on her side. If trump splits the vote Hillary wins. As much as I despise Graham he would be a little bit better than Hillary. Trump needs to realize this and support the republican nominee. They head of the GOP needs to bring the candidates together and focus them on the failed policies of Obama and the democrats as well as the numerous faults of Hillary. McCain, Graham, Perry, and others need to be chastised for going after Trump. Trump needs to be chastised for how he responded. I love the fact that Trump has a machine gun mouth that is set on full auto but he needs to aim it at Hillary and the democrats. That is hard for him to do when the other candidates are setting there like a sniper in the brush waiting to take potshots at him,

Obama is not running for president. The economy is better than it was when Bush left office. So why do you want to run a campaign centered around talking about someone else. Why waste time with the past. The people want to hear about the future. They are tired of negative politicians who just want to divide us into camps. Obama is evil vote for me. Hillary is evil vote for me. That just sounds like crap. We need a candidate that is not afraid to say what he wants to do, and how that will make the lives of Americans better. That is Trump!!!

Trump, is not going to run third party. He is a business man. He knows it would be impossible for him to win. But he has to keep the option out there. Otherwise the GOP power structure will force him out of the party. Establishment Republicans hate him, because he is a threat to their power. The Koch Brothers hate him because he cannot be bought by their money. Between the two of them they think the party belongs to them. But Trump is challenging that assumption.

Trump is the best hope for the Party, and the most likely to defeat Hillary. The people like what he has to say.

in the meantime, Jobless claims last month were the lowest since 1973. Man don’t you hate that.

When benefits run out and there’s nothing left to “claim”, there’s no point in filing a claim. A lot of people are still un or under employed, they’ve just given up. Haley and Obama both hide behind this factor.

Trump is beating them to death. Totally amazing! GOP is one fucked up party. Just as bad as the Dems. Voter anger is like nothing I have ever seen before.

You are getting the same feed back I am. People are sick and tired of Both Parties and the professional boliticians (intentional upside down p). I cannot think of anyone running I wish to support! Obama has been a disaster, Hillary would be as bad, or worse. The establshed, career boliticians in both parties need to be permanently retired! Trump is only saying what many, many Americans feel and like. We are tired of the way these jackanapes feel they are modern royalty and waste our money on their pork and frivolous bull shit, voting themselves special, golden retirements, the best medical care our money can buy, their exorbitant travel and living expenses, automatic pay raises, while we commoners toil to pay for it all!

Let them get on their pompous asses and leave town!
The Country will be better off! The State will be better off! The Counties will be better off! The Towns and Cities will be better off!

I have voted Repub for all of my life and I am ready to vote for Trump as I believe the career politicians in both parties are screwing over the middle class…I hope that since he isn’t a career politician he isn’t for sale like the rest of them…

This was always going to be the Perot gambit. I bet Trump will be getting some well laundered but serious pork barrel favors from President H. R. Clinton. His candidacy has stunk of the Clintons from day one.

Run third party to defeat Bush and go to the Court of St. James.

Tornado Trump. What a pleasure to watch him put a little democracy into the GOP’s normal Soviet-style nomination process (“you can vote for the prescreened party hacks of your choice).

As bad as Trump may be, we could do worse. Bush III has Bush II’s neocon advisers. I’d far rather have Trump than have Wolfowitz back officially plotting mideastern military/foreign policy.
