Trump’s Path Forward

Well-wishers are offering him some advice.

Newt Gingrich:

Either these are the weeks we discovered he had weaknesses he couldn’t overcome, or these are the weeks when he and his team realized they had to get better. If he makes the transition to being a really professional presidential candidate, he will be really formidable. And if he does not, he will not be the nominee.

Bill Bennett: “I’m pounding my desk saying, ‘Get up on the issues! …have offered to help [Trump] but doesn’t seem to make any difference.”

Once Trump becomes Mitch Daniels, he’ll have this thing clinched.
