For Donald Trump, the art of the deal includes trumpeting your intentions on Twitter while deriding your competition. In a recent tweet, the real estate mogul and prospective Buffalo Bills owner claimed that of all the parties interested in bidding on the Bills, he’s the only one who would keep the team in Western New York.
Other possible Bills bidders include Jon Bon Jovi, Sabres owner Terry Pagula and former Sabres owner Tom Golisano. Apparently, Donald Trump has looked into the minds of each of these men, and seen that they intend to move the Bills.
New York governor and Donald Trump arch-enemy Andrew Cuomo isn’t buying Trump’s claim. Cuomo said via the Democrat & Chronicle:
It must be true if he tweeted it. I mean, who could argue with that.
Cuomo also expressed doubt about Trump’s sincerity in wanting to buy the Bills. He said:
I don’t want to characterize what I think of him, but I didn’t see his tweet, let’s put it that way.
I don’t get the governor’s suspicious attitude toward Trump. Why would Trump say he wants to buy the Bills if he doesn’t want to buy them? Is he doing it just for publicity? When has Trump done anything just for publicity?
Why would Trump play to the public by saying he’s the only one who would keep the Bills in Buffalo? That’s how a politician behaves. When has Trump ever behaved like a politician?
I don’t know what Cuomo’s problem is. Trump would never lie or pander, as far as I can tell.
