Trump: Taxi Drivers Get It, ‘Impotent’ Politicians Don’t

Donald J. Trump, real estate mogul and presidential candidate, gave this interview in 1988, a year after he published his best selling The Art of the Deal.

Ever since he announced his run for president, Trump has been giving a voice to the silent majority of Americans that are fed up with politicians going to Washington and becoming “impotent.” Trump used that word in a rally speech in Iowa on Tuesday, and it’s spot on.

Looking back to 1988, we can see Trump sees the common joe and appreciates him; unlike most of the politicians sitting in DC and statehouses across the country.

Here’s a partial transcript where he shows that ‘what you see is what you get.’

Trump: The people that I do the best with are people who drive taxis, you know wealthy people don’t like me because I’m competing against them all the time. They don’t like me, I like to win.

The fact is I go down the streets of New York and the people that really like me are the taxi drivers and the workers, etcetera, etcetera…

I believe in Republican principles.
