Would you support Donald Trump for President?

(CNN)Donald Trump has a new reality show: the 2016 presidential election.

 

Boastful, ranting, unfiltered and breaking every single rule of politics, The Donald announced his bid for the presidency on Tuesday with the indignation of someone who is mad and not going to take it anymore.

The bombastic billionaire, who hosts the NBC reality show "The Apprentice," provided his audience with the self-parody that many have come to expect along with flashes of substance that could have an unexpected impact on the race. He vowed to take on China and ISIS but also said he would build a great wall to stop Mexico from dumping "rapists" on U.S. soil, questioned the intellect of Jeb Bush, branded U.S. leaders as "stupid" and lamented that "the American dream is dead."  "We need somebody that literally will take this country and make it great again," Trump said. "I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created."

Trump's rationale for a White House race is that, at least in his own mind, he is wealthier and more successful than anyone else. "I'm really rich -- that's the kind of mindset, that's the kind of thinking you need for this country," he said. "Somebody said, 'Oh, that's crass.' It's not crass.'" Read the rest here at CNN

He has filed bankruptcy four times and had a show called "you're fired" and you think he'd make a good president? Jeez! What a way to show your ignorance.

You woud vote for the same idiots who have run our debt up to 18 TRILLION! Can you even grasp what ignorance actually is? We need a real change in Government. We need a business man who can cut waste and fire inept Government programs and people such as those in the IRS!

We know all about the politicians who go to Washington and for you to keep electing them makes you what? Time to try something else and give it a try. He could never do any worse!

WAKE UP!

Everyone is talking about bringing jobs back. He's the only one not talking about a plan to do so. He's all empty, superlative rhetoric, with the exception of immigration, where he's just off the map.

He seems better than many on the right, I'll give you that, I would rather Donald Trump be President than Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, and a few others... But I really think Marco Rubio or Rand Paul would make a better fit for the oval office.

Not only Obama but the entire Democrat party are the great dividers.

Tell me what it does to race relations in this nation when the Left race bates every white on black killing but hardly ever mentions Black on white or Black on Black killings. This race bating of cops aganst Blacks is pure politics making sure the Democrat party keeps the stranglehold on te Black vote. It divides the nation!

Obama and the Democrat party CONSTANTLY play the class warfare game pitting Americans against Americans based on your income.

Whether it be gun control, Gay marriage, transgender, abortion, welfare, etc. the Democrat party pits Conservatives and the GOP against women, Gays, Blacks, poor people, illegal immigrants, old people, etc. which is purely designed to divide people into classes so they will vote for Democrats.

For you to not understand the great dividers is smply amazing. The Liberal media is doing a bang up job on people's thinking.

I would vote for Trump over any Democrat. There are plenty of good Republicn candidates who I would vote for if they get the nomination. The entire GOP field makes the Democrats running look like total fools.

"First things first: Donald Trump has filed for corporate bankruptcy four times, in 1991, 1992, 2004 and 2009. All of these bankruptcies were connected to over-leveraged casino and hotel properties in Atlantic City, all of which are now operated under the banner of Trump Entertainment Resorts.Apr 29, 2011

Can the USA survive Trump's bankruptcy record without the aid of federal assistance? By the way, Who bails out the Federal Government?

The Federal Reserve and the banks bail out the government. The Fed(Private bank) is the one who prints the money, this should be common knowledge. They are not effected by the freedom of information act because it is a private establishment. Hints why no audits and crazy printing of money.

Federal Reserve is not actually a private bank. It has both private and public departments. Also, most private banks aren't run by "governors" appointed by the government. It also does not print money. The Fed controls the market. The Treasury makes the cheddar.

For a conspiracy theorist who distrusts the government, you sure don't know much about it.

Others have covered the other parts of your argument, but there is no "crazy printing of money".

The printing of money is really just to replace damaged bills, if you're referring to inflation, that's mostly the result of interest rates. Physical money is being produced at a fairly modest rate

While I like Trump's perspective and enjoy his novel approach to some vexing problems, I have one overriding concern. Like many other super successful businessmen, he is accustomed to giving orders and expecting them to be carried out. He is not used to working through a body of lawmakers, to accomplish his objectives. Wielding ultimate authority successfully is Trump's greatest talent. Vision and planning is his second talent. He is completely untested and inexperienced in dealing with a Washington style bureaucracy to get things done. For this reason, I believe there is huge potential for frustration and failure.

-

I recall a meeting between Obama and Steve Jobs at the WH. After the meeting, Jobs commented that Obama had spent much of the time explaining why he could not get things done. Steve could not see why Obama was making excuses rather than just taking action.

The fake hair on Trump's head stands up whenever someone mentions his birth certificate. His fake hair only does that when people are lying ... or windy days.

Or when he thinks about the sign he was going to put up on "Trump Tower" here in Chicago.

But I do not support Hillary either. I hate Hillary. Most people don't agree with me, but I am 100% genuinely convinced she is a criminal. She pardoned terrorists from the 1970s who had been in jail for over thirty years, (probably about 40). She harassed Bill's rape victims into staying silent. Her policies are not that much different from Obama's. When she gets elected, if she gets elected (I think its quite likely unless she is somehow disqualified), we are in big trouble. She did very little as a Senator for the US and she is a screw up when it comes to being Secretary of State. That said, I don't like Trump either.

Side: Sure would!

Donald Trump has no real political views.

In fact, the only thing on his presidential support website is that he thinks Sanctuary Cities should be defunded and mexico should pay for a wall. Why should we trust someone who isn't transparent with us and will just increase government?

Side: No way!

Seems to offend people, had anger issues in the past, been part of a ERB in Season 1 as a angry version of him... yeah he's getting lowered and Hillary is getting above him a bit more. I won't allow him to become president for his issues and image of what he is. Despite the famous "mexicans..."

I agree with you. I am hoping there's a chance that Hillary will be disqualified soon because Julian Assange claims he can release something that would force the FBI to indict and Preed Bharara is on the case with the current Hillary investigation, which combined makes me think that there is a chance they might be able to give the nomination back to Bernie Sanders. I know its too late for him as of right now, but I think its possible if she was disqualified somehow and I believe its very possible she will be. The most recent FBI email leak shows she has alzheimers or something. I mean she can't remember the basic rules of handling classified info nor can she remember a lot of basic stuff needed to be Secretary of State and the job she's been doing proves it.

Side: Sure would!

The dude is stupid and racist. Hes a rich white man that thinks hes above everyone else. "Small loan of a million dollars." This quote shows how selfish he is. He claims that hes had a chard life because the "small" loan. The dude is rich! However, in a bad way.

Side: No way!

However, if Donald Trump found his way onto the ballot for president, even Bernie Sanders would look more attractive than a bigoted, pathologically narcissistic, politically schizophrenic, misogynistic, ethically bankrupt, draft-dodging charlatan. QUOTED FROM LINK... ANYWAY, I AM NOT LIVING IN THE U.S OR AMERICA... SO..

Politically schizophrenic. That does not even remotely make sense as a statement. With respect to being bigoted, self-absorbed, and unethical... those are unfortunately not particularly distinctive attributes among the candidates.
