Amateur Hour Campaigning

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, a group made up largely of white men with disposable income, submitted a list of questions to both presidential campaigns concerning the importance of general aviation.

Clinton's campaign responded.

Trump's campaign didn't.
AOPA 2016 U.S. Presidential Candidate Questionnaire
Donald J. Trump, Republican Candidate for President

After multiple attempts via many communication channels, no response was received from the candidate as of press time (candidates were given six weeks to respond).
Clinton's campaign responded.

You're running for office. You get a free shot to speak to about 400,000 people who probably will largely turn out to vote. A hell of a lot of them are able to write decent checks to support a candidate. And it may be a reasonable bet that the majority of them are sympathetic to your party.

So why the fuck would you blow off a chance to get your message across to them?

Amateurs.

The only airplane Trumple Thinskin likes is his B757. The asshole buys a place off the end of a runway and bitches about airplanes. He wouldn't take the time to realize most AOPA members aren't the ones buzzing his place. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/5009abe401e04263abde7ef290b0b949/president-trump-could-trump-his-clubs-fight-over-planes

Remember how everyone said that the grassroots of the GOP would sit this one out ?

With support scares on the ground Things just don't get done .

Sucks when you throw a party and no one shows up .

Because the short fingered vulgarian is so short sightedly arrogant, he doesn't see the need to listen to anyone.

Or maybe the Trumperor thinks that white men with disposable income are already going to vote for him, so he doesn't need tor each out to them?
