Donald Trump for President????





deanhills
I'm totally horrified at the prospect of Donald Trump becoming President of the US! Shocked

Last night I was watching him basking in the glory of his latest win, and surrounded by a bevy of beauties. Looked more like a Mafia Boss to me than material for a President.

Anyone else feel the same about this?

Hillary Clinton is not much better, but at least there is more dignity on her side. I feel sorry for the Republicans. I thought they were going to get their run of the Presidency for the next two or so terms as it is their turn, but looks as though we may have another Democratic party President.

In a head to head Trump may just beat Clinton, she may get the "women's" vote, because people are stupid enough to vote for her just because she's a woman Rolling Eyes , but Trump for all his apparent flaws to the rest of the world, is very popular in America.

I am not liking any of our choices for president. Lesser of evils again.

I may be feeling unusually, uncharacteristically optimistic, but, I really don't think we'll see Trump as president. This may be entirely based upon hope, but, I do feel it Razz

As much support as Trump appears to have, and how terrible his competition was within the Republican primaries, I'm not sure he has as much support in the wider population. I think the wider population, outside of the polarized supporters of the two parties, isn't so in key with the policies, perspective and pageantry that Trump carries along... I think the general population is a little less into his sideshow style politics to risk him actually representing them domestically and on the world stage.

Now, I'm not sure Hilary is necessarily a great choice for president, and I think Bernie isn't likely to have enough support within Congress to actually accomplish any of the changes that he has planned (just look at how little support Obama had with more modest reforms)... but they are clearly better choices than Trump in pretty much every conceivable way. The choices aren't strong, but I think they're kinda clear, and I have confidence that the Americans who actually bother to vote will make it.

Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (born October 26, 1947).
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946).

Both are 69 years old.
Are there bo youger ones willing to be A President in U.S.?

When I see somebody like Trump could actually have a serious chance at being the US President, it is pretty scary and seems to verify my feelings that the current political system is not really working. Is there really that much support for racism in America? Is the majority of our country really ignorant? Do most people really believe whatever somebody on TV tells them? I certainly hope the answer to all of those questions is no, but I have my doubts.

Standready hit it on the nail when he said this election is going be another election where voters will have to vote for the lesser evil candidate, rather than their choice for a candidate as there are no good candidates available.

The current political system is a joke - the United States of America is not longer a government of the people, by the people, and for the people is is a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, and if Trump is elected this will worsen - he is a rich guy and like the rest of them has no morals and no obligation toward anything other than the almighty dollar, and the bottom line.

Sad but true there is huge support in the US for racism - given the accomplishments of Barrack Obama and how he is treated buy so many people and Congress and the Senate - how people think he is a disgrace - shows how much bigotry and hatred there is towards blacks to this day. Barracks tenure in office in my opinion has been a huge success - although when you talk to republicans and so many military and religious people they spew venom from their mouths as the rattle off their hatred for the man. Usually with a complete inability to listen to facts. So as much as I would like to think that the US has made great strides towards equality on all levels - the last 8 years and the emergence of Donald J. Trump - and his support - demonstrates that my belief is not true!

Last but not lease you asked do most people really believe whatever somebody on TV tells them? Hell YES - most people read nothing, pay more attention to what is happening to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt - pay more attention to American Idol and will believe anything Bill O'Rieley and any other hate speech specialist on Fox News spews out of their mouth.

Trump, and the republicans keep pointing the finger at Hispanics, Blacks, and poor people as the problem with our country - according to them these are the people that are bankrupting the government and destroying the economy - they claim that America is the land of take the money away from those that earn it and give it to those that don't. NONE of them ever speak about Corporate Subsidies - The Corporate Subsidies have grown to 27% of the Federal Budget - over a 1/4 of our Federal Expenditures are handed to the Corporations - in 2015 it amounted to 47 Billion Dollars - Hell we gave 27 Billion Dollars to Exon Mobile - a company with a net profit larger then the US Gross National Product. A company that claimed a loss for US Operations and paid NO Taxes. We handed 3 Billion to Pfizer a Pharmaceutical Company that claimed a loss in 2015 and also paid no taxes.

Republicans complain the that the corporate tax rate of the US is the highest in the world (which it is at 35%) - this is a red herring - 35% of nothing is nothing - Go down the list of the wealthiest Corporations in the US and look at what they paid in taxes - NOTHING - their right offs allow Multi-billion dollar corporations to pay nothing in taxes - here is a statistic for you, if you just had Pfizer and Exon Mobile pay 3% tax on their total income- off shore and domestically there would be no annual deficit - we would have a surplus!

America is not the land of take the money away from those that earn it and give it to those that don't it is the land of take the money away from those that earn it and give to the wealthy so they can hoard it and buy another Yacht!

These large corporations that pay no taxes and suck up over a quarter of are annual expenses are bankrupting our government - yet no one says anything about it - CRAZY HUH?

If you make 50K a year in the US - and have no write offs and have to take the standard deduction, you pay around 8K in total federal taxes - out of the 8K around 3K goes toward Corporate Subsidies - Less than 500 dollars goes toward welfare, food stamps, and the rest of the social programs. Seriously!!

This is never reported, no news channels, no politicians, NO ONE speaks about this!! But they all believe that Barrack is a disgrace to our country, and vote on American Idol - because whatever the news stations and TV says must be the truth!!!

I am afraid that there may be enough support for the Buffoon named Donald Trump to put him in the white house. And the rest of the world should be terrified that this can happen here in the US, he is a Narcissist - he will wage war and drop nuclear weapons at the drop of a hat to be right and to win. The way he has made is fortune is to borrow money to purchase large assets, and then declared bankruptcy and stiff his creditors - If he gets in office the way he will handle the National Debt is the way he handled his own, he will declare bankruptcy and stiff the federal reserve and turn the global economy upside down in the process Mad Evil or Very Mad

I am not a Christian - but Donald Trump may very well be the Anti-Christ Shocked And if your not afraid of his popularity - you should be Wink

Just read this article on Yahoo News!

https://www.yahoo.com/news/donald-trump-sanity-mental-health-000000384.html

They are questioning Trump's sanity! I had to laugh when I read this article - I have been saying all along that they guy is suffering from a personality disorder. He is either Bi-Polar, Borderline, or Narcissist. All three of these personality disorders have very similar things in common 1) they are unable so show any self restraint and will blurt out any insult or accusation no matter how outlandish or crazy. They will typically tell any lie to get what they want and are bullies when it comes to dealing with other people. The insults, crazy accusations, threats, and bullying are behaviors they have learned get them what they want. Probably how he gained his fortune.

Listening to this man after he has won the Republican nomination for president is doing nothing but reinforcing my belief that he is crazy - Having dealt with all three personality disorders in the past I can tell you - these personality disorders describe people that are partially insane - one of the reasons the Borderline personality is named - they are borderline insane!

The fact that this man can show no verbal restraint, his speeches are filled with lies according to the fact check articles, he insights fear and violence, and says publicly that he wants to punch people so hard their heads will spin demonstrates his lack of emotional restraint as well.

Maybe his insane personality earns him billions of dollar and makes him extremely wealthy - but in my opinion it makes him wholly unfit to hold the office of President of the United States - and recently here it has made him a national embarrassment.

Well said. I still can't believe he got as far as he did. I'm horrified this guy could turn out to be in charge of an atomic bomb. Like how on earth did the Republican Party allow this to happen, other than perhaps he bought most of everyone. Doesn't mean I support Hillary Clinton. She doesn't know how to play international games of politics - I didn't think she was good when she was Secretary of State. Surely the US has much MUCH better candidates to offer than that. Like the two candidates have to be the worst the Republicans and Democrats have to offer.

Going to be interesting to see how the third party nominees will affect the election, must be many American citizens who don't like the candidates, and may not want to vote for the party. Will be interesting to see what the voting percentage is going to be like. Like if I were a US citizen I'd either vote for a third party or not at all.
SpaceInvader75
I'm not going to vote for either candidate because I don't think either one represents me. Now recently I've seen some talk of a third party candidate that might be closer to my political views. It's disturbing to me that we basically only have 2 choices and this isn't the first time I didn't vote because I didn't like either of them. And people are going to say I should vote for the lesser of 2 evils. And in my opinion, those people are part of the problem. The system is clearly failing us, so we shouldn't pretend that it's working, or resign to voting for somebody that we really don't want.

Looking from the outside, I believe Trump is a PITA. However, he has come exactly at a time people need someone to do exactly what he's saying. No one ever had the courage to preach xenophobia. Until recently I though it was to be fit in the same bag as naziism, communism, racism, "genocism" and everything evil. Then I realised that blocking the entrance of some people could do the West a favour. The people he's talking about Muslims have only one problem: they immigrate to western countries and, once setting foot, they claim to be in a free, democratic and republican environment so that they can push their culture. On the other hand, go tell one of them to practice the very same behaviour in their countries of origin Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia to cite just a few examples. Go there and try exercising your Christianity or have a woman dress freely!

So they want multiculturalism on other people's countries. Not on theirs. Go figure!
BigGeek
Yeah Trump panders to the fears of the American people and speaks the words that the ultra conservatives want to hear. I know a few ultra conservatives and they are horrible racists and believe that the poor should be penalized for being poor.

My two biggest problems with Trump are 1) he is a pathological liar, just about everything he spews out of his mouth is based on a lie, and he lies about how horrible the conditions are in America - most of which is not true. 2) He is a horrible business man and his only claim to fame is he personal wealth which he gains by stealing from his creditor and contractors.

An example of how Trump gains wealth is Trump Tower, he buys the land and puts in the initial investment capital, borrows money for the rest of the project, takes his maximum allowed pay by law, 58%, and puts it in his personal accounts. He then contracts and has all the work done, and then declares bankruptcy and stiff his contractors and the banks, keeps the property and his hundreds of millions of dollars. Granted he says he is doing everything by law - which he probably is - but it is unethical and drives the contractors out of business.

In the interview I saw not to long ago when he was asked about his business practices and was read a very long list of contracting companies he drove out of business his response was - It was their fault, if they had been doing business with other companies than me they would have been able to absorb the loss and not go out of business.

Spoken like a true psychopath, no guilt or remorse at all - it is all their fault - not his!

Can you imagine that as President of the US?? I fired nuclear weapons at Iran, but it was their fault, they shouldn't have threatened us!!!

The guy is a pathological psychopath - scary and dangerous!

Yesterday has been the first TV duel between Clinton and Trump. I didn't watch it but heard in the radio today what Clinton said about Trump:

A person who can be provoked by a single tweet should not have his fingers close to the buttons to launch nuclear missiles.

I think that pretty much nails it.

Trump is such a bully. He has no idea what dignity means. Imagine this jackass being our country's representative. I don't know if the polls are reliable, but the fact that Trump is so popular scares me and scares me real bad. There is going to be so much chaos in the world if he becomes our president. His winning will mark the beginning of the end of our world as we know it.

Not unless they are 'groomed' from early in their political career by a party like Obama was. When he was a State Senator (Illinois), He was ordered to vote "present" (not for or against) any bill which the party felt could come back to bite him later.

Not all Americans love him - actually most find him repulsive - Problem is that there is a number of conservatives that believe that anything other than tax breaks to the wealthy and tax breaks to the corporations coupled with no safety regulations, and no environmental regulations is the only way to fix the country and our problems.

Sad part is that the lack of safety regulations has resulted in more law suits than one can count, and lack of environmental regulations has created a record number of super fund sites so toxic that no one can live there. Added to the fact that we lived through 12 years of republican rule from 1980 to 1992 and huge tax breaks were given to the wealthy in the hopes that they would create jobs in the US. It created jobs alright in every other country other than the US.

The people that believe this is the way to fix our country and very angry and refuse to look at any information that supports any other path for our country, they embrace biggotry and hatred and show contempt for anyone that does not support exporting every hispanic and muslim in the country. Coupled with the fact that many of them are bigots and cannot stand the black communities.

The biggest problem I see with them is that they cannot believe anything factual but will believe any crazy conspiracy theory that supports their myopic view of the world.

I have been saying this since he announced hs canidacy for president - Is this the guy you want to give access to the nuclear launch codes?

He is a ignorant blowhard that would launch nuclear weapons to bolster is ego, and would burn the whole planet rather than ever admit he is wrong or back down on any issue!

He had a chance to study and learn about politics past and present, to study up and be informed on everything we face as a country and offer logical solutions, instead he spouts conspiracy theories and spews out crazy statements and demosntrates his ignorance at every turn throughout the election - he is a piss poor business man, and would make a piss poor president!

Totally feel the same way. What worries me most is his arrogance and lack of humility in tough conversations. A personality type like that is just not right for a responsible position that comes with major consequences if not carefully acted. He'd be prone to act first and discuss matters after he has acted because of his proven arrogant belief that he may know better than anyone else around him. He'd forget that the Government of the US is not his Corporation to manage as he thinks fit as a CEO and to hire and fire as he pleases. I see big problems ahead of him interfering in sensitive issues without carefully sounding things out first.

Personally I'm terrified of the outcome - his economic plan is horrible - he plans on privatizing the highways - that means he sells them off to corporations and they install toll booths everywhere and you get a toll bill every month! He plans on privatizing social security and medicaid and medicare - he will repeal Obama care and more than likely put nothing in its place! He also has stated that he will no longer fund any clean energy research only oil and gas! He has also stated that he will no longer enforce any Climate Change initiatives and will not participate in the global climate change initiative. He plans on if not abolishing the EPA to at least repeal all their regulations. He plans on repealing all the OSHA regulations So Corporations no longer have to provide as safe work environment and they can pollute to their hearts desire! He plans to cut the corporate and upper 1% tax rates and he plans on passing the VAT (Value Added Tax). So all in all his economic plan entails Republican values on steroids and along with all that he has all the past bills put in place by the Bush administration - Patriot Act, War Powers Act, Executive Powers Act - all of which give him dictatorial powers over the US and our Government!

I am also going to make a guess based on some actual real conspiracy theories and say that within the next two years the US will be at war in Iran and North Korea!

I think Donald J Trumps administration will be marked as one of the most corrupt and destructive in world history!

Hopefully I am wrong about that! That is just my educated guess!

I don't really understand why people are so surprised that Donald Trump became president. What it shows is that there is a huge divide in the US. Donald Trump is the quintessential American Hero - think Dirty Harry and Archie Bunker. Even Game of Thrones and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The issue of race is such a common theme in all of them, even if they are carefully framed around Aliens and Humans or people from different clans. There is a prevalent stereotype of the American hero who is somewhat rough, speaks his mind, ignores the law and shoots his way out of trouble.

Let's face it. A multicultural society is problematic. Look at any country and it's staring you in the face. Americans are tired of being the protector of the world while being insulted by almost everyone, including their own people. The world is changing. China is becoming more and more significant as a world player and much of the economy has moved to Asia. Asians are buying up land and companies in the Western world and raising prices beyond the reach of the locals in the process.

Donald Trump reflects many of these attitudes and concerns that the American public has. It's a wonder he wasn't more popular.

True, he's not the solution and real life is not Hollywood. But, the people who are running the country are not worrying about the people on the street. There is no sense in America that the average bloke is being catered for. There no job security, homes are no longer affordable, even university education is a debt that you carry over into your first job. Donald Trump may not be the solution but the average American has lost faith in corporations and the government.

I wish more smart people take an interest in politics and less in themselves and being successful and getting rich. Politics is seen as a somewhat dodgy calling, unlike charity, academia, research, and other professions. This is a mistake. You cannot have a government for the people, by the people and of the people if the people feel that being in the government is not for them.

I didn't vote for Trump, and I am not very optimistic about what he proposes to do for the country! I am a US Citizen by birth and a veteran! Unlike most veterans I am not a republican I lean more toward the liberal end of things!

I do realize from having many friends that voted for Trump that they were not voting for his racist remarks, or his sexist remarks they voted for him because they are pissed off at the corruption in Washington and wanted a change. Hillary represented the status quo - Business as usual, and the American people are tired of that and want change!

I will say that Donald impressed me yesterday with his 1st meeting with Barrack, what was supposed to be a 15 minute meeting turned into a hour and a half and both Donald and Barrack said it could have gone much longer. Donald also congratulated Barrack on his presidency and was one of the few republicans to acknowledge what a good job he did as president - Donald said that Barrack inherited the worst economic crisis since the great depression and was able to bring us from a -.7% GDP to a +1% GDP, he added 2.4 million jobs and lowered the annual deficit from 1.4 trillion to 498 billion! He also said that he was looking forward to Barracks council during the transition and hoped that he would be available for council throughout his presidency!

When he was asked about all the horrible things he said about Barrack during the election (in front of Barrack) he replied - that was just campaign rhetoric and threats - forget about it lets move forward!

Haiku2016 - you are right many people see him as the hero - the hard talking, no holds barred, get the job done kind of guy! And he is so far out compared to what we are used to with candidates that they wanted him in office!

I'd also like to add that Hillary's loss is hers and the Democratic National Committees fault - They have no one to blame but themselves for this loss! I also keep asking where were these protestors when Hillary and the DNC ignored the popular vote and railroaded Bernie Sanders right out of the candidacy! How come none of them screamed fraud then? Why no protests then? Bernie won the popular vote and if they had put him up for president he would have won! But they didn't they railroaded him out, forced Hillary down our throats, and then act surprised that she lost! Hillary represented business as usual and the American people are fed up with that!

Weather Donald Trump will be a good president or not remains to be seen! Only time will tell!

This presidential election feels like awful and awfuller were the choices. Whether awful or awfuller won is not clear. Perhaps both candidates did the only thing possible in politics today, had a race to the bottom with both of them shoveling as dirt as fast as they could. Maybe it's the American people, who accepted and responded to those tactics?

I do hope the rhetoric will now fade away and we will see some well thought out policies develop. If the Democrats and the Republicans can now work together for the common good of the country it will be a miracle, but maybe the American people will finally be so tired of dirty politics that they will actually insist that their legislators behave themselves.

good or bad?

Two parties are ruling. If you checked the election results, Democrats are still doing OK in the Congress and Senate.

Trump will have to be nice to the Democrats to get what he wants so I imagine there will be plenty of back rubbing and wheeling and dealing in the background. I'm sure you've already noticed how chummy Trump was with Obama after Trump's election. Kiss and make up to get favours from the Democrats when needed.

Have you got the colors right, DeanHills ? blue is democrat, red republican

Republican party rules in both house and senate, first half year no need for wheeling and dealing.

and Archie Bunker was elected president Anxious

Nope - I didn't even look at the colors as the headings are in the article. I was rebutting the statement about the US being a one party state. If you check the article I quoted, it clearly shows the Republicans in the majority in the House of Representatives and Senate, BUT not by enough votes to qualify for overall one party state equivalent majority, which I consider to be at least 2/3rd s - Republicans have a marginal majority only. They will be needing Senate votes for important legislation to be passed in future. We also know that some of the Republicans are not as supportive of Trump - so he'll have to contend with that too - i.e. he may not be able to get 100% of their votes. So in essence it's still a two party tango. Not a one party state. The President may be Republican, but he'll have to do plenty of wheeling and dealing with the Democrats in order to get what he wants as well wheeling and dealing with some of the Republicans who don't like him that much and may oppose him on some of the legislation he wants to pass through.
