New Trump Sayings

Donald Trump came up with a new expression the other day: “prime the pump.” He was discussing the U.S. economy with a magazine at the time. It’s another example of his tremendous ability to see and grasp complex situations and reduce them to something that can be tweeted and remembered.

Here’s a few other expressions he’s originated since becoming president.

  • A snowball’s chance in hell.
  • Between a rock and a hard place.
  • Once in a blue moon.

In each of those four instances above, the Tangelos mascot said,Have you heard that expression used before? Because I haven’t heard it. I mean, I just…I came up with it a couple of days ago and I thought it was good. It’s what you have to do.”

He also claimed that he came up with the famous statement, “Ich bin ein Berliner,” while discussing the Berlin Wall with President Kennedy. Although only seventeen at the time, Trump said, “Walls always fascinated me, always. I had a gut feeling, you know, just a hunch, just a hunch, but I trust my hunches, I trust my instinct, that walls, like the one in Berlin that we built to protect us from communisms, were going to be important in my life, someday, and I was right. I was right.”


Well, almost fake news.

  1. *sigh* Now I can’t use “Snowball’s Chance” as the title for one of my Alandra Kade mysteries, because SCROTUS invented the expression just recently, so I couldn’t have thought of using it in a short story title more than a decade and a half ago… I hate it when that happens.

    1. Yes, and he’s such a visionary, there are multiple other sayings that he came up with for which he’s just now gaining recognition. Did you know that he was the first one to say, “My kingdom for a nail?”

      1. (Necessary Monty Python reference): How’d he become king? I didn’t vote for him.

        (For want of a nail, a shoe was lost; for want of a shoe, a horse was lost; for want of a horse, a rider was lost; for want of a rider, a vote was lost…)
