With This One On-the-Spot Act, Trump Shows Exactly How He’s Different (and certainly NOT racist)
Trump has a gift.
He loves the stage and the public platform.
He knows how to use it to his full advantage.
Unlike programmed career politicians, Trump does it from natural instinct.
He doesn’t need handlers and a telepromter.
And that’s why he’s winning such a strong following.
He’s the unconventional natural politician.
Just when you think the 2016 presidential race can’t get more surreal, Donald Trump reprised his role from the hit realty TV show “The Apprentice” at Washington press conference Monday and plucked an unemployed veteran out of the audience for an impromptu job interview.
It was yet another unexpected twist in Mr. Trump’s unconventional run that has defied the pundits, confounded the GOP establishment and made him the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.
Mr. Trump summoned the Washington press corps to the under-construction Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, just blocks from the White House. He said the one way or another he’s coming to the nation’s capital.
Ms. Watkins, 38, a former Air Force staff sergeant who survived the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon and served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was at the press conference as a freelance writer working on an article about jobs for veterans.
She briefly described her situation and complimented Mr. Trump’s stance of expanding employment opportunities for veterans, and then asked if the hotel would be part of a jobs program.
“We are doing some of that. What are you looking for, what kind of position,” Mr. Trump asked, and then invited her to come to the podium.
Pleased with her response, Mr. Trump directed her to one of his company’s executives to work out a employment deal.
“If we can make a good deal on the salary, she’s going to probably have this job,” said the real estate tycoon.
Even if this whole thing was prearranged, you gotta hand it to Trump.
His actions speak so much louder than his words.
Or the words of his opponents who attempt to label him as a racist.
