Trump Already Surrounding Himself With Establishment Men

The constant refrain is that Donald Trump is taking on "the establishment". Well, Trump has started to name several individuals that he'll be surrounding himself with, and they're about as establishment as it gets!

More at the link provided.

Trump is establishment, the media is just trying to act like he's not to get him the nomination. They know people are sick of "the establishment", so why not play a little bit of reverse psychology on the masses?

And why does the media need to do this?

Foreign diplomats voicing alarm to U.S. officials about Trump

Foreign diplomats are expressing alarm to U.S. government officials about what they say are inflammatory and insulting public statements by Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, according to senior U.S. officials.

Officials from Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia have complained in recent private conversations, mostly about the xenophobic nature of Trump's statements, said three U.S. officials, who all declined to be identified.

"As the (Trump) rhetoric has continued, and in some cases amped up, so, too, have concerns by certain leaders around the world," said one of the officials.

The three officials declined to disclose a full list of countries whose diplomats have complained, but two said they included at least India, South Korea, Japan and Mexico.

U.S. officials said it was highly unusual for foreign diplomats to express concern, even privately, about candidates in the midst of a presidential campaign. U.S. allies in particular usually don't want to be seen as meddling in domestic politics, mindful that they will have to work with whoever wins.

Senior leaders in several countries -- including Britain, Mexico, France, and Canada -- have already made public comments criticizing Trump's positions. German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel branded him a threat to peace and prosperity in an interview published on Sunday.

OH! How they all loved Obama.

The media LOVES Trump, it increases their ratings. As individuals the reporters might not like him, but the executives at the top sure do...Trump has people glued to their TVs in a way we haven't seen since reality TV first started.


When most of the mass media loves to 'get into' the Trump 'happenings', you know somethings pulling the tails of both the donkey and the elephant, you know there's something new afoot.

Free publicity

With the media glued to each new outrage and embarrassment, his business opponents complain that he gets millions of dollars in free publicity, attracting the kind of crazed fandom more common to pop stars than sober presidential candidates.

Prominent business leaders who have contributed to the anti-Trump super PAC, called the Our Principles PAC, include HP CEO Meg Whitman and billionaires Todd Ricketts and Paul Singer. Also associated with the PAC is Tim Miller, communications director for Jeb Bush, before he dropped out of the race.

Look at Chris Christie looking at Trump. He was the Bilderberg's choice and now he was just pushed out of the way by Trump. Maybe Trump double crossed them. Maybe like another poster suggested Trump was just Clown-shoes to make Cruz(Goldman,Koch,CFR),Christie(Bilderberg's choice) or Rubio(Cruz's backup) look good.

Because people are sick of the establishment and they see the media as an arm of the establishment.

I don't know about that...they aren't sick of the media, they're still consuming it like sick drug addicts. No one is going after CNN, Fox or MSNBC for continued, 24/7 coverage on the latest thing Trump said. No one is saying, "look, we get it -- we're tired of hearing about him. Unless he does something actually newsworthy, we don't care!"

No one's doing that though. People are addicted to seeing the spectacle, and the media are the folks that give it to them by the shovel full.

I would just say some of the establishment hates Trump.

Only the ones in the establishment who would stand to lose if he became President.

How Trump could have been a Great candidate

…IF he was legit

He could have kept his anti-establishment rhetoric

He didn’t have to accuse the whole nation of Mexicans of being rapists and murderers.

He didn’t have to threaten all Muslims in the world (just under 2 billion people) with banishment from the US because a small Islamic sect called Wahhabis (ALL THE TERRORISTS ARE WAHHABIS) has plagued Islam and the world.

He doesn’t have to throw out protestors from his rallies like a brown shirt Nazi rally

He didn’t have to say to Megan Kelly, to paraphrase “you’re on your period you crazy bitch so back off

He didn’t have to mock a disabled reporter

He didn’t have to hesitate to condemn David Duke

And the many other things Trump did…

He could have kept the attitude, and the condemnation of crony capatilism, and all the other tough guy, kick ass stuff.

IF Trump would have done that he might have swept this race.

Also, with his own money, IF Trump would have truly hired a qualified campaign staff rather than depending on the media this would have also guaranteed success, I believe.
Trump could have won Maine, Iowa, and many other states he lost to Cruz if he would have truly had a qualified staff.

As it stands now Trump may have blown winning Florida

As it stands now my earlier theory that Trump is a bogus candidate seems to be true.

He doesn’t seem want to win.

I'm a Trump fan, simply because I'm fed up with the current weak knee wimps posing as GOP "leaders". After seeing so many promises turn into lies, it's time to take a radical chance with radical change.

That being said, I viewed the latest polls at Real Clear Politics (, and am honestly and truly BLOWN AWAY by how Donald Trumps numbers keep going up. Over the past week, he's been crucified in the media, like Jesus was on The Cross, but apparently Americans are becoming more savvy. I think the public is realizing that those who are in power now (in Govt, Media, etc..) are doing whatever they can to hang on..including making Trump's negatives bigger than they actually are.

Then who is not establishment? Your argument only makes sense if they are "promoting" Trump in order to keep an actual anti establishment candidate from winning.

Maybe like another poster suggested Trump was just Clown-shoes to make Cruz(Goldman,Koch,CFR),Christie(Bilderberg's choice) or Rubio(Cruz's backup) look good.

Oh, I think that's why the GOP originally allowed him in the running.... (and I think their original pick for golden boy was Jeb, but then he just choked)....

But, it backfired on them. I'm sure they just can't believe how soundbite after soundbite, his numbers only go up....

So, now they are scrambling. After he wins Ohio and Florida though, they will really be in a bind. They'll either have to rally behind him (unlikely), or pull some crap to put forth another nominee (which would only end in alienating voters, and Trump running independently). But, they still may do it! Why?

Simple. They feel they are doomed on the Oval Office, so they are trying to save the other GOP candidates on the Congressional level of the ticket, by not having Trump's name there.

But, they'd be wrong. Because many Trump supporters would unleash an anti-GOP backlash if this happens. Sticking it to the party for underhandedness.... Simply put, the ONLY viable option for the GOP is to firmly align behind Trump. Unfortunately for the GOP, they are going to realize this WAY too late in the campaign....and Hillary is going to win the Oval Office.
