Donald Trump wants to be this election's 'Comeback Kid’
At USA TODAY by David Jackson,
Donald Trump now seems to be casting himself as the underdog, poised to come back in the presidential race the way some of his struggling companies once did in the business world.
"America needs a turnaround and needs a turnaround fast," Trump told backers Tuesday in a hockey arena at the Prescott Valley Event Center. "America needs a comeback."
In addition to pitching the idea of a national revival, Trump has begun describing himself as an odds-defying underdog in the days since a New York Times story suggested he may not have paid federal taxes for nearly two decades, as polls show him sliding further behind Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
