Mr. Trump, reading at times from prepared notes, unfurled a series of attributes and vignettes to evoke the city, drawing applause and encouragement from a boisterous group of Republicans at a fund-raising dinner in Manhattan, called the New York State Republican Gala, which drew the party’s three remaining presidential candidates.You could have heard a pin drop.
After an extended recollection of some of his local real estate acquisitions, Mr. Trump hailed the “straight talk” and “big energy” of New Yorkers, and “the families playing in Central Park.” But as he has done repeatedly in attempting to make Mr. Cruz pay a political price for deriding his “New York values,” the Queens-bred developer saved his most impassioned definition of the phrase to associate it with the victims and heroes of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
“In our darkest moment as a city, we showed the world the very, very best in terms of braveness and heart and soul,” he said.
This was one of Donald Trump’s most impressive events of the year.
No wonder Trump is leading in New York by 30 points.
