Presidential candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich struggled to follow Donald Trump at the New York State Republican Gala on Thursday night.
“I love the Grand Hyatt,” said Trump about the event’s venue, the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. “I built it.” (He actually renovated it)
Trump refrained from giving a typical stump speech, instead postulating about his numerous improvements to New York’s skyline. Departing from his usual practice, he read fron notes, perhaps showcasing the “more presidential” Trump that his family has been urging him to present.
