No one says “no” to “The Donald.”
GOP presidential contender Donald Trump has insisted all along he’s going to offer free helicopter rides for youngsters attending the Iowa State Fair.
Fairground officials have been just as adamant that he will not. The situation looked touch-and-go for Trump, and while en route to the fairgrounds, he tweeted:
In the plane heading to Iowa State Fair. Will be great fun. Hopefully giving helicopter rides to some of the kids.

When fairground officials nixed Trump’s plans to offer helicopter rides to fairgoers, the billionaire businessman simply played an end run and rented a nearby parking lot, according to The Daily Mail.
And it was a success.
Trump political adviser Michael Cohen tweeted:
So many happy kids in Iowa, who will remember this day for the rest of their lives – thanks to @realDonaldTrump. pic.twitter.com/jdqFxMFPvv

Trump seemed to win over not just youngsters, but also some not-so-friendly names in journalism, including MSNBC’s Mark Halperin and ABC’s Martha Raddatz, who took a few selfies with the candidate.
Halperin had only one complaint of Trump: “I was hoping you’d wear jeans,” he said.
You can’t have everything.
