Had Donald J. Trump chosen a woman or a minority as his vice-presidential candidate, Mrs. Clinton would have faced pressure from liberals to make her own bold choice. If Mr. Trump had picked a fiery raconteur like Newt Gingrich or Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, two of his finalists, the decision would have given Mrs. Clinton pause about putting a young fresh face on the debate stage this fall — rather than an attack dog, according to several Clinton campaign advisers. And if the Republican No. 2 was from a critical swing state, the electoral map might have loomed larger in her considerations.
Instead, Mr. Trump picked Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana — a button-down, deeply conservative white man from a Republican-leaning state whose record appeals strongly to his party’s base.
Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush on Monday intensified his attacks on front-runner Donald Trump, warning that the billionaire businessman’s bullying and insults were sabotaging the chances for a conservative to win the White House.
“The simple fact is Donald Trump would help Hillary Clinton get elected,” Mr. Bush, a former Florida governor, said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program.
“He can’t insult his way to the presidency. I’m the only cant who really takes him on on this stuff,” he said.
I see a great comedy film being made in the future about how Trump tried to throw the election at every turn. I know Trump supporters won't want to hear that, but the facts look awfully damning sometimes.
