Description

In the interview, Trump, the billionaire business mogul, author and star of the dreadful but highly rated television show “Celebrity Apprentice,” said he’d called the White House a while back to offer to build an enormous ballroom there to replace the tent that’s used for state dinners and other major events. “I will build you, free of charge, one of the great ballrooms of the world,” Trump said he told Axelrod, one that will “cost maybe $100 million” and be “attached to the White House.” (No determination on the size of the gold plaque thanking “The Donald” or where it would be affixed.) But Axelrod told Balz that the conversation occurred after he had called Trump, not the other way around. Trump, now at the top of some polls on nominees for the GOP presidential candidate, “contacted me originally asking to be put in charge of the operation in the gulf to seal the oil leak.” That would have been in late June or so. “I know how to run big projects,” Trump told Axelrod. “Why don’t you put me in charge?”
