New York Magazine released an article called “Donald Trump Didn’t Want to Be President. One year ago: the plan to lose, and the administration’s shocked first days. By MICHAEL WOLFF” This was taken from the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which will be released on January 9th.
Obviously, the premise is ridiculous. Why would he campaign so hard, or even run at all, if he didn’t want to win? Former Trump campaign advisor Sam Nunberg was quoted in the book. The news network HLN brought in Nunberg to see if the quotes were accurate. Nunberg explained how they were twisted and taken out of context.
Basically, Nunberg mentioned to Trump in 2014 that there is a small chance of him winning, and Trump said “We won’t come out of this badly,” and, “no matter what, we’re going to have fun.” The author took that to mean that Trump didn’t want to win.
“No it’s not, well what I was telling Michael was a story, that in 2014 I was flying down with then-Mr. Trump to New Orleans for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, and we were discussing his run, and he had already told me he was planning on running. And what I said to him was, a hundred a years from now nobody is going to remember if you don’t win the primary or the presidency, who ran. Frankly, nobody is gonna remember who was the president,” he explained.
