I Didn't Know Trump reached out to Mitch McConnell .... DID YOU?

It's no wonder Trump went after Cruz for calling McConnell a liar.

I guess Trump who likes to brag about self funding also met with Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson

You can read the full article HERE. Below is the part of the article that I've referred to:

... Much of the mainstream Republican reckoning with Trump is rooted in deep disdain for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the businessman's closest rival. Cruz is seen as more likely to try to upend the web of lobbyists, donors and other powerbrokers who have long wielded enormous influence in the Republican Party.
Liz Mair, a communications operative who is running one of the GOP's few anti-Trump efforts, said donors affiliated with other candidates would rather let Trump beat Cruz in the early voting states than let their least-favorite senator gain momentum.
"They'd rather that he kills Cruz by winning in Iowa and New Hampshire and then try to take him down," Mair said.
Even as he's taken up the anti-establishment mantle, Trump has made some quiet overtures to GOP powerbrokers. He met with Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson last year and has also reached out to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, though he hasn't spoken directly with House Speaker Paul Ryan. ...
I wonder what Donnie and his pal Mitch talked about? I can only guess.

Trump is similar to Reagan. He also buttered up the Congress before he attained power, because he needed cooperation and votes. I don't know what these Cruz supporters are expecting, maybe another aloof senator as president. That's not what we need.

What we need is a little honesty from Trump supporters when they say Trump's anti-establishment and will shake things up. He's falling right into place with the establishment. EVERYTHING WE DON'T WANT in our nest president.

I see a presidential contender who has defeated the PC establishment but signals he is capable of governing the country, rather than spreading anarchy, damaging our credit rating, etc.
