Donald Trump, “No point in changing my ‘winning’ temperament”
Donald Trump said Tuesday in a TV interview he will change his temperament because he has “been winning” and it is what has gotten him to the point he is now.
“Let me ask you about changes you’ve made to the campaign, Mr. Trump. Are we looking at a different mentality going into these final three months headed up to the election?” the interviewer asked the GOP residential nominee. “Are you changing your own temperament, changing your speeches in any way to make sure to get back where you are in the polls?”
Donald Trump cited his Republican primary victories as reasons he has no plans to change.
“I think my temperament has gotten me here. I’ve always had a good temperament, and it’s gotten me here,” Donald Trump, adding his campaign has “very good polling information.”
“I certainly don’t think it’s appropriate to start changing all of a sudden when I have been winning,” he said. “I mean, I’ve beaten many people, and now we are down to one, and we’ll see how it all works out, but I think it’s going to work out well.”
During a speech Monday before the Detroit Economic Club, Donald Trump exercised restraint when interrupted by hecklers, showing he may be softening his approach.
His campaign celebrated the event in a fundraising e-Mail Tuesday, saying “we stayed on message and delivered our positive platform to America,”
While Hillary Clinton and her allies have spent almost $100-M on TV advertising, Donald Trump has yet to spend a “red cent”
Despite raising $82-M in July, according to The New York Times, Donald Trump is not buying air time.
“First of all, I don’t even know why I need so much money,” Trump said about his fundraising at a campaign rally last month. “You know, I go around, I make speeches. I talk to reporters. I don’t even need commercials, if you want to know the truth. Why do I need these commercials?”
