Marco Rubio is regarded as politically unclean because he was the lone conservative to participate in Chuck Schumer’s infamous Gang of Eight. Yet no doubt Trump’s supporters will give him a pass even on this:
“I think I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi — I’ve always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi,” Trump said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” referring to the House minority leader.
“Reid’s going to be gone. I’ve always had a decent relationship with Reid,” Trump said, referring to Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the Senate minority leader. “I always had a great relationship with Harry Reid.”
Trump said he thought he’d get along with “just about everybody,” including Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), likely to be the next Senate Democratic leader, who Trump said he was “close to … in many in ways [sic].”
The real estate mogul is targeting GOP rival Ted Cruz, against whom Trump is running neck and neck in Iowa a week out from the state’s caucuses. Trump argues that the Texas senator won’t work with others in Congress…
But Trump sure will. After all, he is the guy who makes deals. Also, he is unencumbered by conservative principles.
Those who believe Trump will stem the tide of immigration rather than cut an amnesty deal with Pelosi, Schumer, et al. have been hypnotized. If he is elected, the heartbreak of his supporters when they belatedly admit they were conned will be a sad sight to behold.
