Trump Suggests Only Those Who Give Him Money Will Have White House Access

Trump Suggests Only Those Who Give Him Money Will Have White House Access

….Trump suggested during a Sunday morning interview that only those Republicans who donate to his presidential campaign will have access to his White House…..

“…….What Trump said to the mega-donors on Fox News was a shakedown. Trump told the big money Republicans to pay up or get shut out if he wins the White House. Contrary to his boasts, Donald Trump doesn’t have an extra billion dollars lying around. Trump can’t afford to fund his own general election campaign……………

Trump is making it very clear to Republicans that only his friends are going to have White House access, and the best way to become a Trump friend is to write a check.”

Trump Suggests Only Those Who Give Him Money Will Have White House Access

Donald Trump has no blueprint for raising the estimated $1 billion he'd need to take on the Democrats and now must go to the big money doors who he railed against hat in hand and on bended knee asking for money to run a national campaign to be president……….and it is not going too well……..
So Trump must resort to threatening them to get the money he needs
But now the question now is:
What will Trump now have to promise those “special interest” folks to get their money?

Self-funding and unfettered from the pressure of the special interests and lobbyists…….. …………What a joke….
Trump is selling his soul to the devil as we speak

Every candidate is required to help raise money for the party. It has been that way for decades. Just because Trump is up front and honest about it is not selling his soul to the devil.

And he did not say only his friends would have access to the White House. He in essence was saying those who are openly opposing him now won't have the access that others who are helping in the effort will have--those who oppose him now are not going to have much opportunity to tell him what to do later on, i.e. they won't have his ear. That is vintage Trump. Criticize it at will, but there isn't a politician or ordinary citizen anywhere who would honestly disagree with it.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here………..

There is no sense of honesty here that one can attribute to Trump. The negotiations of how the money raised by Trump would be distributed was reported and a matter of public knowledge.

But let’s not get lost here and return to the thrust of my post……..That of Trump saying he would not be influenced by lobbyist, special interests
Just two months after launching his campaign last year, Trump boasted on CBS’ "Face the Nation": "I don't want lobbyists.
“I don't want special interests,” adding that he "turned down $5 million last week from a very important lobbyist, because there are total strings attached to a thing like that. He's going to come to me in a year or two years and he's going to want something for a country that he represents or for a company that he represents.”

He has recently hired Paul Manafort, is bringing on some close associates for key spots on Trump's presidential campaign, including several – with checkered pasts - whose lobbying histories seem to epitomize the special-interest influence against which the candidate rails.

You are correct when you say Trump “only his friends would have access to the White House” but included only those Republicans who donate to his presidential campaign will have access to his White House. And those who oppose him will not have access at all.

Is Mr. Trump planning to be President of some of the people?

Now Mr. Trump is knee-deep with lobbyists and special interests and is doing what he said he would never do…………..To beholding……..or as he called it “bought and owned” by those who make those “big buck” contributions expecting something in return………

Add this to the long list of lies, distortions and flip flops which seems have become SOP for a Trump campaign; but not new for a life-time pattern of behavior.

If Trump said otherwise..........

Wrong TV program..........and a flip-flop from the position he emphatically stated a few months back...........

Did you forget that?

In other words, Trump won't even listen to anyone who didn't give him money. There have been other "leaders" who ruled that way, one of them was the famous George III who Americans kicked out.

You've come full circle

Oh for heaven's sake. Listen to the full context of his comments. He wasn't saying that at all. All he said is that those who oppose him now wont' have easy access to have his ear--literally tell him what to do--later on. He tends to be honest about his opinion in things like that. Completely politically incorrect for sure. But his willingness to say things people aren't supposed to say in the politically correct world has gained him a great many followers.

Follow your own link and watch the same video at that link.

Hilariously wrong. There is no flip-flop there.
Stop with the delusional bs.

What Trump actually said was:

When asked about a list of Republican mega donors who are refusing to give him money, Trump said, “These are people that won’t have access to the White House, and they understand that like they do every other candidate. They endorse people like Jeb Bush. They would have had total control over Jeb. They would have had total control over many of the other people.”

Meaning that those who were banking on their 130 million tossed at failed candidacies with the intent of buying back door access to the WH have just screwed themselves out of 130 million and will have nothing to show for it.

Hopefully come November the same will apply to one of the other professional access sellers as well.

SO WHAT.............the "news" is almost 30 years old............plus it is a big SO WHAT and has nothing to do with the exposure of Trumps character flaws and fitness to be president

I used to wonder if you ever bothered to think before you started a thread

Know I know, you dont.

Obama also said that elections have consequences and he played the stubborn role to the hilt by using Pelosi and Reid as his proxies.

Nothing new here.

That's an incredibly stupid way to justify anything. FYI, it is the same lame **** with which Obama's robots justified all his mis-deeds. What you're condoning is a race to the gutter. By your own admission then, Trump is no better than Obama who was no better than Bush....

When are Americans going to get a backbone and send some of these rodents packing
