Donald Trump's Horrible Attempt To Connect With Voters On Today Show
Somehow, someway, Donald Trump's campaign still has legs.
One of the (many) flaws in his campaign is his inability to connect and relate with the everyday American. Citizens who start with very little and attempt to build an empire seem to shy away from Trump.
Yesterday, Trump appeared on the Today show and had a chance to make up lost ground with that voter base when posed a question from a member of the studio audience.
A registered Republican in attendance asked The Donald if, with the exception of his family, if he’s ever been told “no” in his life. Trump replied that he's been told no his entire life, and discussed the "pressure and struggle" during his rise to the top.
"It has not been easy for me, it has not been easy for me. And, you know, I started off in Brooklyn," said Trump."My father gave me a small loan of a million dollars. I came into Manhattan, and I had to pay him back, and I had to pay him back with interest."
Donald has a lot of nerve with this answer.
Now I know, many of you are thinking "well a million dollars isn't that much money." You have to remember that Donald got the million dollars in 1971. And, according to an inflation calculator, $1 million in 1971 is the equivalent to more than $5.8 million in 2015.
How can I relate to your struggle when your dad shelled out 6 million bucks for you to start your business with out of college?
