Donald Trump (Quote)

“I don’t do it for the money.

I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need.

I do it to do it. Deals are my art form.

Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry.

I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.”

(Donald J. Trump The Art of the Deal)

    • Reminds me of Gordon Gecko too. Of course, some people would make that comparison in a disparaging way, but in my case, well, I liked Gecko. He was a great character, clear-headed, effective, and good at what he did. Not so honest, but just because there’s parallels doesn’t mean they’re exactly the same in every way (which, with some of the people I’ve had conversations with recently, would be the immediate comeback I’d get). But yeah, I thought this was a great opening for his 1st book.

    • Probably. The nice thing about that though is, his personal history (and, if I’m remembering right, his own words) mean that after he makes it to the top he’ll be bored with the prize and anxious to see what mountains he can climb from his new position. That’s one of the reasons I think he’s likely to deliver on most of his campaign promises. If he wins, it won’t be long before he’s over the big win and wondering “alright, what’s next?” He’s good about coming up with new goals after the previous ones have been met.

      • 1st the Presidency, then *acting* as President. Building a wall, making our allies pay their fair share into our collective efforts around the world, reforming our tax and healthcare systems, and so on. That’s kind of what I meant 🙂 .
