Donald Trump Tells A Fascinating Inside Story About His Dealings With The Obama Administration
Donald Trump gave a sober, hard hitting speech about the state of the country and the Republican Party at CPAC 2013. He also offered up a fascinating inside story about his dealings with the Obama Administration that he said summed up the problem with America today.
John Hawkins's book 101 Things All Young Adults Should Know is filled with lessons that newly minted adults need in order to get the most out of life. Gleaned from a lifetime of trial, error, and writing it down, Hawkins provides advice everyone can benefit from in short, digestible chapters.
“I’ll give you something that’s small, but it’s emblematic. A couple of years ago, I saw a major, major state dinner — and it was in tent on the White House lawn. A bad tent. Probably a tent that the guy who owns the tent made a fortune. (He) probably rented it for one night for more than it cost him. I said to myself, ‘Here’s china in a tent.’
I called up the White House, someone I know very well, very high position, and I said, ‘I will offer to build, free of charge, the most beautiful ball room in the country, anywhere. I will do it. It’ll cost anywhere from 50-100 million dollars. You can get the greatest architects. We’ll make it perfectly sympathetic with the White House and the architecture. It’ll be fabulous.’ They said, ‘Thank you very much! What an offer!’ We never heard from them. …That’s a small thing, but that’s the problem with the country. That’s what happens. You don’t hear from people.”
That is the story of Obama administration in a nutshell: Republicans making good faith offers to help the country and simply being shrugged off due to partisanship or simple incompetence.
