Trump’s message: ‘Nothing good is happening. I’m gonna make it great.’

Donald Trump is asked why he looks so angry on the cover of his new book.

Not to repeat the headline on this post verbatim, but Donald Trump’s message is literally — literally — nothing good is happening. I’m gonna make it great.

In a brief interview with something called extratv.com, Trump was asked why he looks so angry on the cover his new book, “CRIPPLED AMERICA: How to Make America Great Again.” This is verbatim from his reply:

Well I’m supposed to be angry because the book is a tough book. It’s a tough book about a lotta things. Frankly, we talk about the difficulties of the country. We owe $19 trillion dollars. We have $19 trillion dollars that we have to somehow pay back. We lose a fortune with every single country that we deal with. We’re losing to ISIS. We’re losing every way. Militarily. Trade. Nothing good is happening. I’m gonna turn it around. I’m gonna make it great. But right now I can’t put a smiley face on the book because there’s too many bad things happening.
