True sportsmen and good presidents know that coming in 1st without principles and character is no triumph.
"I can only say this: My whole life has been about winning. My whole life," Donald Trump toldThe Washington Post's Bob Woodward and Robert Costa in a free-ranging interview over the weekend. "My life has been about victories. I've won a lot. I win a lot. I win - when I do something, I win. And even in sports, I always won. I was always a good athlete. And I always won. In golf, I've won many club championships. Many, many club championships. And I have people that can play golf great, but they can't win under pressure. So I've always won."
Let's put aside Trump’s myriad failures in life: Trump steaks, Trump University, Trump casinos, a Trump magazine, Trump airlines, etc. It's no surprise Trump talked a lot about winning because he has never stopped talking about winning. On the stump, he says things such as, "We will have so much winning if I get elected that you may get bored with winning. Believe me." He even defends his constant whining as a kind of brilliant strategy for winning: "I keep whining and whining until I win."
