Is Donald Trump searching for an exit strategy?

Donald Trump is a narcissist and if he feels he won’t get the nomination, I have no doubt he will employ an exit strategy. We would do well to remember what Stephanie Cegielski, communications director for the now defunct pro-Trump Make America Great Again PAC had to say. She wrote an open letter in which she labeled the Trump campaign a con, a publicity stunt. I have provided it in the quote section here so you can see what she said. I don’t believe that Trump meant to win when he started. But once he got a taste of possible victory, he was all in. Now, he’ll do literally anything to win. But if he doesn’t, look for him to blame Ted Cruz, the GOP or anyone else that got in his way.

Donald Trump

From RedState:

Almost a year ago, recruited for my public relations and public policy expertise, I sat in Trump Tower being told that the goal was to get The Donald to poll in double digits and come in second in delegate count. That was it.

The Trump camp would have been satisfied to see him polling at 12% and taking second place to a candidate who might hold 50%. His candidacy was a protest candidacy.

But something surprising and absolutely unexpected happened. Every other candidate misestimated the anger and outrage of the “silent majority” of Americans who are not a part of the liberal elite. So with each statement came a jump in the polls. Just when I thought we were finished, The Donald gained more popularity.

I don’t think even Trump thought he would get this far. And I don’t even know that he wanted to, which is perhaps the scariest prospect of all.

He certainly was never prepared or equipped to go all the way to the White House, but his ego has now taken over the driver’s seat, and nothing else matters. The Donald does not fail. The Donald does not have any weakness. The Donald is his own biggest enemy.

RedState has made some excellent points on all this: ‘Donald Trump hired a low-end wannabe operative, Corey Lewandowski, to run his campaign. He hired a crew of similar zeroes to help him out. He built no field infrastructure — the man just appointed a state chair for California last week. He relies on public polling. His campaign strategy is nothing more that a bunch of high school pep rallies. He doesn’t bother to learn about anything and, in all seriousness, there is really no evidence that Trump is actually mentally curious or even mentally awake rather than being very clever in a hunted animal kind of way. This is why his Virginia campaign chair doesn’t know that the delegates have already been picked. This is why he can’t fill delegate slots on ballots. This is why he was routed in Colorado and Wyoming.’ Trump’s whole campaign is fueled by anger and vengeance. It is also powered by a myriad of shifting promises he will never keep. The man has helped the GOP finish itself off. He has also fractured the conservative movement in two… constitutional conservatives and those that follow Trump. He would finish America off divisively as well if he were ever elected. All of his followers are being conned. This is why I finally went #NeverTrump.
