Trump Haiku: 3

Third GOP Debate Extravaganza!

[Each of these haiku is composed solely of the Donald’s own words.]
We will have a big
fat beautiful door in the
middle of the wall.

decisions right now.

So John got lucky
with fracking and he hit oil
and he got nasty.

We lose. We have a
trade imbalance. Believe me,
the world is peanuts.

I feel that gun-free
zones are a feeding frenzy
for the real sickos.

I have a permit
to carry. I like to be

Caesar’s, the Rolls-Royce,
is in bankruptcy. I used
the law. Came out great.

My greatest weakness
is I trust people too much
then they let me down.
