Trump Reveals Foreign Policy Strategy: I’ll Whine Until I Win

CNN reports:

Donald Trump’s plans to make America great again are going to include a lot of whining. Trump on Tuesday morning in an interview on CNN’s “New Day” proclaimed that he is “the most fabulous whiner” when confronted with an opinion piece that criticized him using the same label. “I do whine because I want to win and I’m not happy about not winning and I am a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win,” Trump told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Tuesday. Trump was pressed for specifics on the issues he’s raised on the campaign trail and touched on every issue from abortion to equal pay for women to foreign policy during the half-hourlong interview on Tuesday. And Trump also refuted a report that he was considering ruling out a third-party run. “I’m running as a Republican, I’m leading in every poll…I’m leading all over the place and I want to run as a Republican,” Trump said. “If I am treated fairly that’s the way it’s going to be but I want to keep that door open. I have to keep that door open because if something happens where I’m not treated fairly I may very well use that door.”

    ISIS will be impressed. Oh yes.

    “If they don’t give me what I want, I’ll whine about it. And if they still don’t relent I’m taking my ball and going home.” This is the new American Exceptional, now with more outright childishness.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      And the entire planet breathes one giant “Bye, Felicia!”

      • MattM

        I wish the American public would do that. But we’re all so painfully dumb. Or at least the majority of us (or so it seems).

  • Judas Peckerwood

    Is it wrong to be enjoying every second of this?

    • TampaDink

      Nope…and you are not alone. It must be very fattening….or perhaps causes serious long term health problems…it is so addictive & enjoyable.

    • bkmn

      The only part of it being wrong is that there are a good number of people that want to vote for him. Not enough to get him elected but quite a few.

      • That Other Jean

        And I profoundly hope they do, especially if he forms a third party and splits the Republican vote so that Hillary wins.

        • clay

          Or, as with Bill and Perot, splits the GOP, but Clinton would have won, anyway.

  • bkmn

    Sure that will work.

    • Sk3ptic

      Gasp! Truly inspired.

    • PLAINTOM

      That is brilliant !!!

      • clay

        almost as brilliant as the Oompa-Loompa cheetoes-dust makeup the Donald is sporting.

        • Brian in Valdosta

          Hahahahahahaha ….

          Now I have rice milk AND pop tarts coming out my nose, thanks to you!

        • OrliJoe in Fla

          I was wondering what the hell that was on his face!

        • ZhyKitty

          I should have read the thread before commenting.
          That was exactly what it made me think of, too.

    • People4Humanity

      *stealing!*

    • goofy_joe

      This wins the internet today. 🙂

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Dear Donald: That doesn’t work at places you don’t own. HTH.

    • lymis

      Which is precisely why he’s running for President. He wants to buy the country.

  • TampaDink

    Has he done ANY face to face interviews since the debate? I know that all 4 of his Sunday morning shows were like this one, phone interviews.

    • Larry Larson

      It’s easier to listen to him, when you don’t have to look at him.

      • TampaDink

        Yes….but only slightly.

    ““I do whine because I want to win and I’m not happy about not winning
    and I am a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win,””

    Spoken like a true, er, 2 year old.

    • barracks9

      His inner Veruca Salt is there, just below the surface.

      • Mark_in_MN

        Below the surface?

      • clay

        Veruca Salt, oompa-loompa fake tan, I bet he also ends up like the kid who wants to be the first on Wonka-vision.

    • That Other Jean

      I’ll bet he holds his breath until he turns blue, too.

      • OrliJoe in Fla

        I think it’s orange… just sayin…

  • DesertSun59

    I notice that the media is focused on his bluster, his war with Ms. Kelley and on how he ‘represents a frustration with voters’.

    I note that the media doesn’t care one whit about anything he says, doesn’t care that he offers exactly NOTHING of substance, and that he represents the Oligarch Class only and no one else.

    Republicans are so easily distracted and duped. No wonder they’re ‘frustrated’. They keep voting against their own interests.

    • GC

      That mass of Republican voters aren’t really working- and middle-class people. They’re latent millionaires who’d all be filthy rich too, if it weren’t for the goddamn pinko atheist librul gubmint regulating everything in sight.

    • kanehau

      Someone on CNN said it well (paraphrasing)… Trump is entertaining now… probably not so much so in the fall.

  • Sk3ptic

    How very presidential.
    When I hear whining from an adult, my initial response is repulsion, not respect.

  • Patrick Thomas

    He’s the best friend we have. He’s thrown the Republicans into complete chaos. They have NO idea what to do about him. And, in actuality, there IS nothing they can do about him.

  • thevofl

    I thought this was an article from The Onion. OMG.

    • David Walker

      No. The world has been officially warned.

    • Suzy

      The Onion has been Trumped.

      • People4Humanity

        … or Trumpeted.

  • Sam_Handwich

    he could call Nancy Reagan a mangy diseased cünt and he’d still be polling around 25%

    but that’s about his peak, i suspect. Jeb’s a used condom. I still think Kasich has a chance at the top spot.

    • TommyTune

      You are too funny. But if Kasich does make it to the top he might actually threaten Hillary, which isn’t funny.

      • Octavio

        Hillary . . . threatened by a Swiss breakfast cereal? Not bloody likely. 🙂

      • Todd20036

        Aside from the fact that he’s at about 3%, Hillary will have lots of ammo to choose from. Keep in mind though, Kasich is only a point better than Huntsman was at this point, and he dropped out.

        I suspect that the field will narrow soon as megadonors decide to stop funding the losing horses.

        • Craig Howell

          Which will be no time soon, let us hope! This is all much too entertaining!

        • lymis

          Don’t kid yourself. Whoever gets the nomination will become the Second Coming of Jesus. Look at Romney – at this point in the last cycle he was a godless heathen non-christian threat to the Fabric of the Universe, until it became obvious he was the Anointed One. Then he was suddenly wonderful.

          • clay

            and he lost.

  • Nic Peterson

    Use the door! Please, use the door!

    • bkmn

      I imagine Rinse called Murdoch begging him to be nice to Rump.

  • oikos

    Run with it.

    • Sam_Handwich

      LOL!

      • TommyTune

        Apropos of nothing, I just read the other day that if you still use “LOL” Google has decided that you’re old. Apparently the new lingo for younger folk is either “ha ha” or “he he,” depending on your region of the country. For its sheer brevity I’m going to risk being labeled old and continue using LOL.

        • Stev84

          Yeah. That’s just way too long to type.

        • Todd20036

          screw it. I’ll be 48 next April. Call me old.

          • Craig Howell

            Bah! A mere chicken!

        • lymis

          I’m so old I still resist text speak in the first place. I’ll use “that was funny!”
          It was inevitable that the generation wars would eventually hit texting. I’m surprised it took this long.

        • cleos_mom

          One of the rare but priceless perks of actually getting old is not giving a day-old fart what younger folk think, as long as they get your order right.

    • Cuberly

      Awesome!

  • gaymex

    Chris Cuomo should be ashamed of himself for not stopping that bag of wind. Trump controlled it. Their mothers’ hairstyles…WTF

  • bambinoitaliano

    I think China should be shaking in their boots. Thinking this guy is going to default it’s loan. Quick! Must funnel money into Hillary campaign!

    • People4Humanity

      I never thought how 🇨🇳 China would react. ✨Brilliant!⚡️

  • JCF

    He left out the part where his whining is accompanied by lawyers* : that’s why it’s worked.

    *Lawyers and/or, of course, money. Poor people’s whining, no matter HOW justified, gets precisely bupkus.

    • clay

      It’s that $400million headstart of his showing up, again.

  • SockMikey

    Trump “Whining & Dining” foreign dignitaries till their heads explode like in Mars Attacks!

      We need to play some Gene Pitney songs and see if it works on Trump.

    I keep on expecting this story to be from The Onion.

  • Dealt

    This is what Trump said about his own daughter once in March 2006 when questioned on The View about Ivanka possibly posing for playboy :

    “although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

    Presidential?

    • kaydenpat

      Creepy as hell.

    • bkmn

      Republican.

    • Todd20036

      Sure. He could take her dancing at a purity ball

    • Eebadee-eebadee-thatsallfolks

      Preemptively you g after the Duggar vote?

    • lymis

      All the other ick factors aside, note the entitlement. “If I wanted her, I’d have her.” She wouldn’t even have a say in the matter in his mind.

    • People4Humanity

      None of them.

  • Blake J Butler

    hmm “wined” help me past college algebra very recently as a stress reliever in downtime study time. But for Trump “whine” until he wins ? the only question i have is, when did he stop whining ? i though he was doing that since he ran for president. Trash talk Obama for being a failure to fail, and instead mock his successful policies, attack a minority group and press them as rapists, etc. I hope he gets treated worse MUCH later in the Primaries, so he gets pissed off and runs as an independent, that will be an instant Fuck you to whomever the republican nominee is

  • kaydenpat

    Please use that Independent door.
    What an ego!

  • madknits

    And this monument to muck wants to be our president.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    so if he’s elected President, he become the “Whiner in Chief”?

  • anne marie in philly

    what is he, 3 years old? what’s next, “if you don’t give me what I want, I’ll hold my breath until I turn blue?” “I’ll run away from home?”

    somebody bitchslap this little fucker!

  • Cuberly

    Trumpy Love sure distracts from things like this, Ted Cruz appearing on the AFA radio show advocating for a theocracy.

    http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/44928_Ted_Cruz_Appears_With_Anti-Gay_Hate_Group_American_Family_Association_Openly_Advocates_Theocracy/comments/#ctop

    Should we be savoring this? I assume yes, oh the fantasy of diminished and powerless talibanjelicals. Sadly, this is most likely temporary. Who am I kidding, it could change in a minute.

    • lymis

      Good point, if Trump doesn’t flame out soon, every other Republican contender essentially becomes a stealth candidate that nobody is paying attention to at all, and could conceivably win on “Well, he’s better than Trump!”

  • JT

    Whining until you win? Yeah, that will go over well with Putin and people like him.

  • DaveMiller135

    “I’m gonna whine until I get my way” is a decent description of Republican lawmakers actions, going back at least to Clinton.

  • Happy Dance

    He is like the spoiled teenager who doesn’t get their way and makes everyone else suffer along with him.

    • JustSayin

      You are giving him a few years….I would say four year old

  • zhera

    Look Mommie, a clown!

  • Bj Lincoln

    This is the ONE quality our next President really needs there Don. It has to be easier than…say….holding your breath or….stomping your feet.

    I did manage to stop my son when he went thru that stage where everything was whined. I just whined back until he stopped. One of those lessons in life he must have missed.

  • Javier Smith

    Well stick with what’s been working for you, I suppose.

  • LonelyLiberal

    Except that people here in the US can be threatened by lawyers. Most countries don’t care, and I’m pretty sure even the army will tell you to piss off.

    Plus other countries can show you the door and bar your entry, which would be a first for an American President, I think.

  • William

    Could we have the US Air Force drop him on Syria?

    • lymis

      There are international treaties preventing the use of weapons of ass for destruction.

    • Jay

      Actually, this guy could drive ISIS
      nuts. Why? Trump’s whining drives everybody crazy.

  • e jerry powell

    “I do whine because I want to win and I’m not happy about not winning
    and I am a whiner and I keep whining and whining until I win,”

    Who among us can say that this is not the truest most obvious statement ever made?

  • Bob Black

    For Trump “treated fairly” means win. If he doesn’t win, in his mind at least, it MUST be because he “wasn’t treated fairly”.

  • TexasBoy

    They may as well elect my friend’s 6 yo child. She has the whining down to an art form.

  • TexasBoy

    I’m want him to release his idea for US policy. I can’t wait to hear him explain how he’ll personally profit from the US declaring bankruptcy, a subject with which he actually has experience.
