Donald Trump: Terry Pegula overpaid for Bills because of me
Donald Trump says Terry Pegula overpaid for the Bills because of Donald Trump.
You may have noticed that when Donald Trump is involved with something, Donald Trump tries to make that thing all about Donald Trump. Take the sale and subsequent purchase of the Buffalo Bills, for instance.
Instead of congratulating Pegula -- something even Bon Jovi did -- Trump decided to send out this tweet:
The Wilson family should thank me. Pegula overpaid for the @buffalobills because of me!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 19, 2014
Trump is believed to have bid $1 billion for the team. Bon Jovi's group reportedly bid more than Trump ($1.05 billion), so it's not clear how Trump drove up the price. But if Donald Trump says he did, then Donald Trump did because Donald Trump said so.
Anyway, not everyone is like Trump.
Here was the statement released by the Bon Jovi group after Pegula's bid won: "On behalf of Myself, Larry Tanenbaum and Edward Rogers, we wish Terry and Kim Pegula all the best as they continue the legacy and tradition of the Buffalo Bills and the Wilson family."
