CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— SEPTEMBER 28, 2016 FLASHBACK: “Todd Ricketts, a co-owner of the Cubs who is CEO of the conservative Ending Spending super PAC, was in attendance. In a shoutout to Ricketts, Trump yelled: “I want to commend the Ricketts family on their business plan and how they rebuilt the Chicago Cubs in a few short years!”  Ricketts shouted back:” It’s gonna be a great year because YOU are going to win the presidency AND THE CUBS ARE GOING TO WIN THE WORLD SERIES!”  The room erupted with applause. Trump was now on a roll.”
