AN OPEN LETTER TO DONALD J. TRUMP
You announced your presidential bid on June 16, 2015. Since then I have made multiple respectful attempts to connect with you directly, with Roger Stone, Cory Lewandowski and with your campaign staff. I wrote and published CounterCoup: How Trump Can Win, on 14 August 2015 in CounterPunch. I was unsuccessful in the months that followed. Worried about you, last week I turned to a retired hedge fund manager, now a philanthropist, and asked him who he talked to when he did his standard high dollar donation. Here’s what he told me:
Robert, it would surprise you how many people are attempting to reach Donald Trump right now. There is no campaign as we know it, no structure, no national coordination, no desire to connect with state/local GOP leadership—chaos is reigning supreme. The only people I know that were able to reach him (past tense) are the REDACTED folks, and that was through REDACTED.
Now I understand from Neil Keenan that, with the dynamism of the entrepreneur, you prefer to carry most of the load yourself, are very uncomfortable bringing in new direct reports, and may be confident you easily can beat Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren, who will be aided by massive electoral fraud – one reason I want an Electoral Reform Act in time to assure your legitimate win cannot be stolen. [I expect Hillary Clinton to be indicted before the convention and to watch Election Day from a courtroom if not from Martha Stewart’s former cellblock in West Virginia.]
