Trump digs deep to defy Clinton momentum

1

WASHINGTON: Donald Trump pledged to pour millions of his own dollars into his presidential bid on Wednesday, in defiance of the seemingly unstoppable momentum building behind Hillary Clinton. With less than two weeks before polling day, and with early voting under way in several states, the Democratic nominee remains comfortably on course to become America’s first female president. And Wednesday’s headlines were a telling tale of two buildings: Clinton revealed she will hold her likely victory party under a vast glass ceiling while Trump unveiled an alternative Washington address — just in case the White House eludes him. Trump took heart from a new survey that shows him with a two-point lead in early-voting Florida, a state where races are often won and lost. A Bloomberg poll put Trump 45 to 43 percent among likely voters in Florida. Florida is the country’s third most populous state and one with a wide mix of voting groups, including retirees, Hispanics and Bible Belt whites. “We are going to have, I think, a tremendous victory,” Trump told CNN. Pressed on whether he’ll open his own wallet to match an onslaught of Clinton ads, Trump said he will have spent $100 million of his own money by election day, a sum which would imply him digging much deeper than he has so far. But first he set aside precious time Wednesday for the grand opening of his new hotel in Washington, the Trump International. At a speech later, he said he had wanted to cut the ribbon on his hotel with his children “who had worked very hard.” “If we win on November 8 we are going to Washington DC to drain the swamp,” Trump told cheering supporters in North Carolina, promising to also impose term limits on lawmakers.

  1. The momentum of Clinton’s achievements that creates pride and pleasure for her and keeps her feelings under snug is a substance that sharply bites Trump. Feeling zealous to dismantle the structure of her fame and popularity; Trump is spending his economic and intellectual resources slavishly. This is evident from his activities where he looks involved less in national issues and more in character assassination of Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton has grumbled that in RNC the speakers attacked her personal affairs more vigorously than discussing national issues.
    Most Americans and the world know that the current status of Clinton is a compound of various elements:
    • Her unwavering struggle. Wisely conducted campaign. Regard for supporters and their loyal reaction in return
    • Sparkling performance at DNC and all three presidential debates .Rich inflow of endorsements. Enviable
    Popularity among women .Respectable recognition with International political community.

    The compound made of such priceless ingredients becomes invincible and all efforts of Trump to break it would go waste.
