Trump Makes Fellow GOP Candidates Nervous With Talk of Campaign Ads
He has the money to spend, that’s for sure. That is also the sentiment relayed by “I am very, very rich” Donald Trump. No one can deny that Trump has worked the platform like nobody’s business. He is constantly in the news and that is right where he wants to be. He is loud, proud, and he has a winning attitude. So far he has not had to seek donations for a campaign war chest, because he is his own war chest, courtesy of his wealth. Now, however, he is just about ready to start his campaign war-ad assault. His budget? It appears to be limitless. The man plans to spend “whatever it takes to win.”
Let the mud-slinging begin! Except it started a long time ago. Other candidates, GOP or not, have become well-educated to the verbal wares Trump has at his disposal. They’ve figured out not to attack unless they are prepared to endure a fiery blast furnace of humiliation. The man has a gift for the slap-down.
His deep pockets for his soon-to-launch ad campaign have the competition running scared. Why? He might be preparing to go on the offense? That is certainly scary. Unlike Trump, they fear the skeletons in their closet.
Having hired an advertising firm in Florida he is well on his way, but don’t expect him to hand off the reins in this regard. “..Trump said he has proposed several concepts for ads in the works, according to his campaign, as reported by the post. Trump is very hands-on, even in his own business. His thought process with the ad campaign is simple;
“If you don’t win, what have I done? I’ve wasted time.”
Not to mention money, which we know the man loves.
“I want to make America great again and you can’t do that if you come in a close second.”
On that note he is right, and the rest of the GOP field is right to be having anxiety attacks. Everyone knows that second is just first among the losers.
