Former Trump Organization VP On Donald Trump’s Awful Dealmaking Skills

But that’s not how former longtime Trump Organization executive Barbara Res or Trump’s The Art of the Deal co-author Tony Schwartz see it. They told MSNBC’s Ari Melber on Thursday that Trump’s dealmaking skills aren’t what the president brags them to be.

“I never thought he was a great dealmaker, to be honest with you,” said Res, who was the organization’s vice president in charge of construction. “In terms of taking the responsibility for the buck, he just would never do it. It’s not in his DNA. He’s never responsible. It is always someone else’s fault.”

Schwartz, meanwhile, said he recently looked back on Trump’s business deals that he “unfortunately described 30 years ago” and realized that “most of the deals in that book were failures.”

“And the number of deals he’s made over the years since then have overwhelmingly been failures,” Schwartz added. He said Trump was “really one of the worst” dealmakers he’s ever come across.

Yeah, that is why he has more money than you, and me too.

Just read that on my news feed. It really does slam The Donald on two counts: he never takes responsibility for his mistakes, and he's a lousy deal maker.

Classic con-man.


Yeah, that is why we have the lowest unemployment rate in decades, good economy, better trade relations, stronger military and respect in the world again.

Good Lord, Q. You're jumping from the 1980's Donald to the 2015 "Mr. Trump". Res made up her mind about him long before the '16 election. What changed? Donald, that's who. It was after he burnt his credit bridges with American bankers in a series of bankruptcies that left them holding the bags.


No, I'm not jumping from the 1980s Donald to the 2015 "Mr. Trump."

Yes, Res made up her mind about him long before the '16 election.  That was my point.  Long before the '16 election he was a straight shooter who was great to work for and who treated her exactly as he treated men he worked with.  I directly quoted her above in her own recollection of her time working with him.

But NOW ... she is claiming that her time working with Trump is something else entirely than what she said as recently as right after the 2016 election ... and what she said in this Frontline interview. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/article/the-frontline-interview-barbara-res/

When I ask "What's changed?" I'm expecting you to be smart enough to realize I'm not asking what's changed since 1980.  I'm literally asking what's changed from the time she said this in November of 2016 til now.  Her harshest criticism in the frontline interview is about a period where she says

"He just was doing things that were unusual for him. He was not really making great deals as he’s known to do."

Now TWO years later (not 30 as you're trying to claim) ... she says

"I never thought he was a great dealmaker, to be honest with you,”

What changed Ulyssese?

It's obvious.  You don't really have to answer.

Well, knowing history the way that I do, other countries, not our allies killing each other, let them be. If the winner looks twice at us or an allies, then destroy every one of them, make their kind extinct. We should not be the world’s police department, and having our soldiers killed for other than the USA or true allies that would die to help us.
Men ought either to be indulged or utterly destroyed, for if you merely offend them they take vengeance, but if you injure them greatly they are unable to retaliate, so that the injury done to a man ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared. Niccolo Machiavelli

You know, the more I read of what you think, I am starting to believe you are a socialist or Marxist son of a bitch. I hope we never meet socially. I am thinking I would have a hard time controlling my anger.

And you are not alone here either. What the hell is going on in my country today. You good people out there, take note. There are many of these so called liberals that are more than that. They are you enemy.

Yes. Just like the rats or termites in your home. Get rid of, and enjoy life. ISIS are people? Are you kidding me? Kill them, their wife’s, parents, children and religion, and it will be a better world.

Like Trump. I speak the truth. Hard and not easy for some to understand.

Yaaaaa - Trump's worth billions of dollars but he doesn't know how to make deals.  Like saying a quarterback who threw ten touchdown passes in a game doesn't know how to play football.  Grin

If he's such a horrible deal maker, then why is there a new trade agreement between Canada, Mexica and US? Why did NK stop launching missiles over Japan? Why did NATO start paying more of their share? I'm confused. If Trump is a bad deal maker, then who is doing all this great deal making?

Trump's trade deal was a small refinement of NAFTA, by any honest assessment.  Kim is building new launch capabilities and has returned to threatening the US.  And NATO members were already expanding their military spending on a schedule agreed to with Obama.  Trump did nothing to speed that up.

And now I'll flip your question around.  If Trump is the gifted negotiator he claims to be, why didn't he get the wall done in his first two years?
