Does Trump know the differnce between sacrifice and accomplishment?

Let's, for a moment, believe that Trump's answer to the sacrifice question was accurate (you and I know about his business practices, but humor me, for the sake of argument).

What Trump was describing in hiring people and erecting buildings is not the definition of sacrifice, it's the definition of privileged accomplishments. Sacrifice is losing something, not gaining something.

Mr. Khan is right. Trump does not even know the meaning of sacrifice.

1. Trump doesn't know the difference between an issue which favors him and an issue which

harms him. He is like a dog that just cannot quit chewing on meat that is poisonous.

2. I think he's thinking "I have to pay these people I hire out of my accounts... and that's horrible"

10. Absolutely. It's a "sacrifice" to him to have to pay people to work for him.

Life was so much better for Trump and his ilk when all they had to pay for was chains, whips, and the occasional bowl of gruel.

3. Hah!

 

My wife was making the exact same point during the interview. Trump would say he did this and she'd say "that's not a sacrifice, that's an accomplishment." Over and over.

4. Not sure

He knows the difference between his piehole hole and any other hole.

5. What has Trump ever accomplished?

His rich Daddy had 27,000 homes in New York alone. Do the math. Trump's business has been nothing but a vanity project.

6. The Khans' son is minuscule to Trump....

just a MORON's way of thinking. He would have the guts to sacrifice is own life.

8. Sacrifice is giving up something valuable or important to you

while not receiving anything in return. Hiring employees is a business transaction - you pay the employees but you get the value of their labor. Erecting a building is also a business transaction - you bear the expense of the construction but you gain the value of the building derived from rents and appreciation. In other words, what Trump describes is simply business. He received value and gave up nothing.
