Trump political pal Roger Stone on how Team Trump is waging war. Interesting interview on what is likely to happen and the Trump campaign’s view, by Jason Zengerle in GQ.
Well, I can tell you, having worked for Trump for almost forty years, on and off, no one puts words in his mouth. Nobody suggests what he should or should not say. He doesn’t work that way. He asks a lot of questions, he gets a lot of opinions, he mulls it. But he’s a master of his own fate. He is his own strategist.
And his strategy has been brilliant. If you had told me a year ago that he could combat all of this incredibly heavy negative advertising in every medium—television, radio, cable, mail, so on—with a free-media-based strategy, I would never have believed it. I mean, Trump is better than his campaign.
Trump has been outspent every place, both on the ground and in the air wars, and he’s still won, in most cases, going away. So only Trump can tell you why Trump does the things Trump does.
