Trump met on Tuesday with the CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Javier Palomarez, and will be made to appear to the chamber on October 8th for a question and answer forum.
CNN "It's kind of interesting, the dichotomy between the private Donald Trump and the public Donald Trump. He listened a lot more than he spoke," Palomarez said. "He never once interrupted me."
Trump boasted that his biggest ace in the hole was his money, and that may have been so... until now.
He boasted time and again that he is above his competitors, because he is super rich and does not need anyone elses money for support. He boasted that while the other Republican candidates had to get their support from other rich persons, and as a result they will be indebted and open to paying the piper when the time comes, he will not bow or be indebted to anyone.
He thought that he was powerful enough to do what he wanted, powerful enough to say what he wanted, and was powerful enough to insult the Latino population and walk away unscathed. He was wrong.
He is as green a wanna be politician, as they come. He is a beginner, he kept his eye on the ball, but he took his eye off the field that he had to run on, to get the win. That field of voters being... the Latinos.
He is now being seen as nothing more than a regular man with foot in mouth disease, a regular candidate, a regular politician... in that he does not need to be bought, he can be made to beg for free.
He just woke up to the fact that his money can't help him now, to win votes... he needs to be respectful... bow... and beg.
Trump learned that he does not need to be bribed or donated to, for him to be humbled and made to know his place in an election.
The sleeping giant that he insulted, causing it to show its hand, is a coalition of over 300,000 Latino businesses. This coalition, by itself, generates some 4 billion dollars annually.
He realizes that not only do you need money to win an election, but you also need votes. He realizes now that he need the votes from the fastest growing voting block in America... the Latinos.
Trump realizes that he does not need to take someones donations to be indebted to them, to be made to bow, grovel and beg to them... he realizes that he is asking something of them, he needs them, not because they can give him money, but he needs their votes.
Funny enough, Trump has run into another wall of his building... the Latino wall... of voters.
