“Donald Trump suggested that the reason he wanted to be president was because ‘nobody knows’ his ‘rich friends,’ according to an adapted excerpt from Maggie Haberman’s new book.
‘The question I get asked more than any other question: ‘If you had it to do again, would you have done it?’ Mr. Trump told her about running.
‘The answer is, yeah, I think so. Because here’s the way I look at it. I have so many rich friends and nobody knows who they are.’”
Donald Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama sought the presidency because he wanted to be a transformational leader, who would usher America into a post-racial era, make affordable healthcare available to all Americans, and unite red states and blue states into one America: red, white and blue.
Most candidates cite lofty goals like ending world hunger, fighting for human rights or seeking world peace, when they are asked why they are running for president.
Not Trump, he implied that he ran for president to become even more famous. It wasn’t enough that he was already famous for being a reality TV host, tabloid star, and real estate developer, he lusted for the world fame that comes with being the President of the United States and Leader of the Free World.
Trump admires wealth and fame, most of his friends were New York business magnates, but nobody outside of the business world knew who they were. Trump wanted to be filthy rich and insanely wealthy, so he ran for president.
Trump’s strongest backers, Republicans an evangelicals should never forget that he doesn’t care about Republican policies or evangelical doctrines, he cares only about wealth and fame.
