Hmmm, short view.

Massive Tarriffs.

Keep the minimum wage ... but not increase it.

For a 'wealth tax' ... but also big tax cuts.

Repeal Obamacare.

Also seems to be useful concerning his policies.

Thank you for correcting me. At the very least however, I'd still trust a businessman to run things better than a congressman. He knows his popularity base and is tapping into their anger at how ridiculous things are. I'd still vote for him.

No, I think he's dumb as a bag of hammers. Saying he's dumb as a politician is a compliment.

Call me when you make your first billion and have a serious chance of becoming the president.

Of which Steve Forbes only managed one.

(Gotta admit, though, as looney as the Big Don is, at least he's more...imaginative than those other billionaires-turned-Republican-candidates who run for no other earthly political reason than getting rid of all those nasty taxes everywhere.
I mean, even when Lex Luthor ran for president in the comics, he at least had a more internationally-minded Ban Superman platform.)

Trump is a nationalist but not a fascist he is looking out for the working class. The elite hate that so they call him a nazi or a fascist. Trumps policies of stopping illegal immigration and focusing on rebuilding our manufacturing help the working class and cut into the elites pockets hence why the media is trying to destroy him.


So, never got to around to asking this, but he's into supply side economic like Reagan or something?


Yes except Regan was very weak on immigration and likely in the pocket of big interests that profit by illegals streaming in. With less workers wages have to rise which lowers big businesses profits. I would rather have a strong working class than have the elites take us for everything we have got.

He speaks very generally about his ideas and plans, but never gets into specifics. I don't think he understands the logistics of what he wants to do and how much authority a president has. It seems like he assumes he can run the country like a CEO, but it's not that simple, there are checks and balances for a reason. So yeah, I think his political knowledge is not on par with his business acumen.

Most of his business ventures have ended in bankrupcty. He's neither a good politician or a "knowledgeable and clever" businessman. He's just a racist, biased, asshole

He has gone bankrupt a handful of times and always managed to come back stronger many businesses fail before they succeed. Frankly his record is quite impressive actually research it instead of listening to liberal talking points.

Running 4 businesses into bankruptcy is never a good thing. It shows he's incapable of running a successful business. The only reason those bankruptcies didn't hurt him is because he abandoned them before he could feel the impact. It was good for him, but that only means someone else had to suffer for his mistakes. He says he wants to run America like his business. I would not want a president who throws his own citizens under the bus to save himself.

At last night's debate, he publicly stated that he's willing to commit war crimes (invading foreign land with the goal of murdering innocent civilians). There's no way anyone who says stuff like that can ever win an election for any public office... Except maybe in Nazi Germany.

When he suggested we should go after the families of known terrorists, to draw them out.

A video would be nice. I'd like to judge for myself, although I don't think poorly of your second hand account.
