CPAC/DONALD ON DONALD: “A lot of people say, ‘How do you do it, sir?’ I had a man come up to me the other day, one of the toughest, strongest people that you can imagine. You all know his name, big businessman, a lot of money, a lot of success, tough as hell.
And he said, ‘Could I ask you a question, president?’ A friend of mine, used to call me Donald, now he calls me president. ‘Could I ask you a question, president?’ ‘What?’ ‘How do you do it? How do you do it every day? They sent you subpoenas every day. There’re after you. They’re looking to take you down at levels that nobody’s ever put up with before.’
Seven years I’ve gone through this. We beat them all, but it continues. And he said to me, ‘Seriously, how do you do it? I could never do it.’ This is one of the toughest guys. I said, ‘Maybe you could.’ He said, ‘Nope, I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning.’ But I do it for you, and that’s what I’m doing it for. I do it for you.”
