Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 8, 2013
"I think we're probably in that position where we'll let Obamacare fail...We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it. I can tell you, the Republicans are not going to own it."Not that it was ever in doubt -- but he never was and never will be a leader.
