Donald Trump Woos WI With Jobs-and-Economy Pitch

EAU CLAIRE, Wisc. — If Donald Trump wins Wisconsin, it'south all over. At least, that'south the way he told it to a packed auditorium on his third and final campaign stop on Saturday.

If he doesn't win, on the other hand, "I don't think it'south over because we're way up in NY and NJ and Pennsylvania." Regardless, Trump thinks he'll win the nomination before the GOP convention.

But that doesn't imply he thinks he'll win it because the process is fair. Rehashing a prior win in Louisiana, Trump accused a corrupt party structure for a loss of delegates to Ted Cruz. "It'south not fair, folks. This isn't fair," Trump said. "Cause I'm the outsider, and what they do is they wish to knock out the outsider because they wish to hold their small party going."

Not that Trump wasn't once portion of the "little party" himself. Frequently casting himself as a member of the establishment before joining the race for the White House, Trump on Saturday declared he was "like the King of the Establishment, in a certain way," citing past donations to the Republican Gov'south Organization as an example. Now, he'south cast those elderly ways aside. He told the crowd: Trump is here to work for you.

Trump trails Cruz by double digits ahead of the WI primary on Tuesday. The candidate plugged a jobs-and-economy message for most of the day, deviating from his pro-jobs, pro-middle-class talking points only to speak about foreign policy, the "obsolete" and outdated notion of NATO, and the absurdity of the Iran Deal.

In light of WI Gov. Scott Walker'south endorsement of rival Cruz, Trump took a few minutes at each rally to read aloud some statistics about Wisconsin'south lagging work creation statistics and to knock Walker for how he fared in the early phases of the campaign. "Turmoil" was how Trump termed Walker'south WI as he closed out his final rally, adding that the sitting governor "hasn't done a great job."

Trump also had words for President Obama, who earlier in the week called out Trump for know-nothing foreign and nuclear policy. "The man is incompetent," Trump said. Then, responding to the president'south Friday comments, Trump retorted: "I know more about nuclear than he'll ever know. I know what'south right and wrong."

The GOP frontrunner then pivoted to discussing Japan and S Korea — who he says we defend for nothing — and their relationship with N Korea. At his rally just a few hours earlier in Wausau, Trump said that Japan should defend themselves against N Korea. "And if they fight, you know what, that'd be a terrible thing, terrible. Excellent luck folks, appreciate yourself. If they fight, that'd be terrible, right? But if they do, they do."
