Donald Trump has no place telling businesses what they ought to do
Donald Trump is a businessman. He’s also an entertainer and now he wants to be a politician. Despite all of this, this mammoth ego feels he is entitled to tell others what they ought to do with the profits of their businesses. He has no place to do such and in sending a bossy letter to the president of CNN, he proves himself as nothing other than a mega-mouth and a man without logic.
In a letter to CNN’s Jeff Zucker that Trump shared on Facebook, the self-publicity loving sort stated:
“Over the weekend it was announced by numerous entertainment channels and magazines that your ad rates had gone from $5,000 to $200,000, or a 4,000% increase. Since then I’ve heard that your rates will go even higher. While I refuse to brag, and as you know very well, this tremendous increase in viewer interest and advertising is due 100% to “Donald J. Trump”. You saw it on The Apprentice where it was virtually the easiest show to sell to advertisers on television, and at extraordinary rates. In fact, NBC renewed The Apprentice, even though I told them not to because I was running for President (something which did not exactly endear them to me)”.
“As you are aware, for the first debate, FOX unexpectedly (but not those who know), had one of the largest audiences in the history of cable television, 24 million people plus, and word is that your audience will be even larger”.
“I am self-funding my campaign – I do not want money from lobbyists, donors or special interest groups. Likewise, you should view the second debate broadcast as a public service and not accept the massive profits that this airing will generate. I believe that all profits from this broadcast should go to various VETERANS groups, a list of which I will send to you in the near future. The veterans of our country, our finest people, have been treated horribly by our government and its “all talk and no action” politicians. In fact, some would say they are treated like third class citizens – even worse, in many cases, than illegal immigrants. It is about time that someome comes to their aid. Let’s start now!”
“Years ago, when I built the Vietnam Memorial in Downtown Manhattan with a small group of others, I had always felt that we have to be helping our veterans for more than we do. This is why my campaign is so focused on these great people who have done so much for us. This large contribution of many millions of dollars would be a truly wonderful thing for CNN to do”.
“Please let me know what your decision is as soon as possible. Thank you!”
Patronising to his core, Trump again shows himself as nothing other than a nuisance in this letter. CNN have as much right to make a profit as he does and if The Donald really wants to help veterans, he’d do well to put his hand in his own pocket. This is a publicity stunt too far and with this nonsensical, badly composed letter comes indication yet again that this moron of a man should stick to what he does best: Lowbrow television.
