Trump Goes After Republican Negotiation Tactics

That's one area where Donald Trump without a doubt knows what he is talking about. In a video blog today, he called Republicans "El Foldo."

“Its hard to believe, but the Republicans look like they’re about to fold again. They talk tough, but they don’t act tough. Its incredible. Look at what’s going on. It’s called ‘el foldo’."

"They are going to do something with the debt ceiling. They could negotiate so strong. They could negotiate so powerfully. Right now they’re losing all their chips just like they did in December. They call it the ‘lame duck’ session, where they gave Obama everything he wanted and frankly they had all the cards. Right now they have all the cards and they’re going to give up their hand. I don’t believe what’s going on. And that’s one of the reasons I’m so disgusted with them."

And on Greta's show just now, Trump added, "The fact is, the Republicans are terrible negotiators. . . . They are horrible." I hear ya, brother. For one thing, leadership needs to get out in front of these negotiations and prep the battlefield. Like the Democrats have. One example: All this hysteria over the August 2nd date? And not making our interest payments? Democrats--especially through Bush employee Geithner--planted that fear weeks ago. They've been making it grow ever since.

Added: Video of Greta interviewing Trump this evening.

Added: Audio of Cantor describing Obama's walkout. Thanks to "'80sBaby."
