2016 GOP Presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s campaign manager says Team Trump is going all the way to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention.
En route to Cleveland, the real estate mogul is preparing for the long haul, laying the groundwork to shake up his campaign this fall as Iowa and New Hampshire rapidly approach.
According to USA Today:
“GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump and campaign manager Corey Lewandowski say they are preparing for the long haul with television ads, appearances by Trump’s wife and daughter and a new Trump tome that will serve as a campaign manifesto of sorts.
“We’re going to the convention — that’s it,” Lewandowski said during a wide-ranging interview he and Trump granted to The Washington Post. “One delegate or 2,000 and change, we’re going to the convention, and there’s nobody who can get him out of the race.”
Trump, who is largely self-funding his campaign, is plotting out his first TV ads of the 2016 campaign and is planning to deploy wife, Melania, and daughter, Ivanka, to make public appearances to highlight women’s health issues. His new book will be called “Crippled America.”
The Post reports that the next phase of the billionaire’s campaign also will include a new focus on appealing to blue-collar workers and fleshing out his argument that China’s trade and currency policies have “emasculated” the United States.
“If you don’t win, what have I done? I’ve wasted time,” Trump told the Post. “I want to make America great again and you can’t do that if you come in a close second.”
