But if you still have any illusions (or delusions) about Donald Trump's huge talents as a successful businessman, all you have to do is look carefully at his prominent role as an owner of the New Jersey Generals of the USFL. Founded in the early 1980s, the USFL, a professional football league, was new and it was experiencing growing pains.
At that time, a young Trump was certainly a brash, confident promoter and salesman. Here he is in an interview during a New Jersey Generals game. Also, forebodingly, listen to the owner of the Birmingham Stallions throw the media under the bus for their coverage of the league.
So, let's fast forward to the story about the demise of the USFL. Here is a video clip highlighting Mr. Trump abilities as a leader of a league that backed his strategy and, then quickly, failed miserably. No success to be found here.
Now, let's look at a interview with Mr. Trump as he shows his impatience, arrogance, and short attention span, paranoia, lack of a sense of humor and inability to learn from his mistakes as he sits for a moment with the media to reflect on his USFL experience. Pay careful attention to his attitude toward the media.
