It’s not the done thing to cheat at golf – but it is The Donald thing
Donald Trump has no shame when it comes to flaunting rules and etiquette. It’s how he emerged victorious, at golf, and in commerce – and it’s how he became president
When Donald Trump announced he was running for president, I wrote that his chances merited taking seriously. I can’t claim I was alone, but there were plenty who said the idea of the brash property developer becoming Potus was ludicrous.
I’d followed his career, though, and saw a shameless ability to self-promote coupled with a knack of bouncing back from failure. Those, plus a large but lacklustre field of Republican candidates coupled with popular disillusion towards the political Establishment (and nobody typified that class more than Hillary Clinton), augured well for The Donald.
If I’d read Rick Reilly’s new book Commander in Cheat (Headline), I would have been more certain that Trump could reach the White House.
