The Donald reacts to Barack Obama's election

The night after President Obama's election on November 4, 2008, Donald Trump went on the Greta Van Susteren show on Fox News.

From the transcript:
VAN SUSTEREN: You're building a golf course, a resort, hotel. But why not here in the United States? Why are you going all the way to Scotland for this?
TRUMP: The United States is my place. And I love it just like you love it. But the last eight years have been really down cycle for the United States in terms of respect by the world. I mean, we're no longer respected like we were. We're no longer thought of like we were. Investment coming into the United States, they have other choices now that before they would only even think of the United States.
So it's a little bit difficult. And I went to Scotland, and Scotland, and I have other many other places outside the United States. And I still invest heavily in the United States, Greta, just so you understand, but the United States is not thought of the way it once was.
And hopefully Obama, President Obama, will do a great job and he will bring that respect back. I hope so.
None of that not-my-president crap.

By the way, he opened that course and a couple of others.


"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.


  1. Wishful thinking gets you nowhere. Action is what counts, and The Donald is a man of action. - Elric

  2. Trump built more stuff over the last 8 years and obama spent his time dividing the country so he could advance elitist power over us. And the opposition party hid under their desks and let him. My summary of the last 8 years.

    1. Very pithy, and exactly true.

    2. You forgot that obama got in a lot of rounds of golf, too.

  3. Obama plowed the ground, broke up the clods, and let it be. The Donald came, saw it was good for him, and planted a bumper crop of voters.

  4. Was Trump attempting to lure Barry out of the U.S.A. for some reason? Like saving the nation?
