What? Where do you get this drivel? Started with a $1m loan? He was given far more than that from his father. And there's been no proof that his empire is worth $10B, or even close to it. That's just what he says, and we know that most of what he says is pure bloviating. Also, I read an article today about a credit rating company who has rated Trump's businesses near the worst in the country.

I don't think he's an idiot. Far from it. But those who scam grandmas out of their retirements are also not idiots. I think he's a shrewd businessman who leaves a wake of despair behind him.

Not to mention, many economists have written about the fact that had Trump taken what he had inherited from his father and put it in a mutual fund that tracked the US stock market, he would have turned it to 15 billion. So actually, Trump is a horrible businessman LOL

It's comical to me that people actually think this man is fit to be a dog catcher, let alone president.
How about folks like Bernie Marcus, David Perdue, Pete Petit and Dr. J. David Allen? They are rich and they are big Trump supporters.

No body said Hilary was perfect I have criticism of Hilary But there a stark difference

Relationship with the Truth

Donald Trump's file | PolitiFact

Hillary Clinton's file | PolitiFact

The bottom is Hilary the top is Trump,

Red, orange are lies, The Green and Yellow are Truths.



Your not accepting what the free press is telling you. you have more sympathy and loyalty to the candidate over the free press. That dictatorship stuff.

The media universally says trump is red flag...... Trump says don't trust the media. You trust Trump over the Media.

I heard a funny quote today:

Irony: A straight white billionaire claiming the system is rigged against him.

If he did that, you'd probably insist he was an investor rather than a businessman.

It hilarious you that term refer to me while supporting Trump, and In school I was pretty good at debating, You just can't refute none of points.


Just because he became a billion doesn't mean he didn't have corruptible ethnic getting there. He has been sue and fine multiple times. Discrimination, fraud and etc.


But what I was responding to you said Trump went from a 1 million loan to a 10 billion empire. that not even true. So I respond to that. You basically over boasted his wealth and ignore his privileged starting point. Then said how can I call him a idiot when I or any politician never accomplished that. Well me or any politician wasn't born privilege and basically took an inheritance 200 million dollar either.

Yes I see him a idiot not that doesn't know how to make money but rather he's self center ego manic

That's my biggest criticism of him I see him some what like a con artist.
