It is this type of delusion that has Trump sitting at the top of the GOP garbage heap.

For me not paying your employees is one of the worst things a human being can do, especially when you are exploiting desperate poor immigrants. This is especially important when some of you want to claim he is a successful businessman. Of course, if you steal, exploit and don't pay your workers and creditors you are gonna get wealthier.

You find it funny? I don't find it funny. I feel sad for those immigrants who didn't get paid. I hate greedy ruthless people who abused poor desperate people and don't compensate their work so they can buy a bigger mansion or drive a nicer luxury car while those workers won't have the money to buy bread or pay their rent. Yes hate, I FREAKING HATE scumbags like that. What's amazing is how Trump followers want to call Trump an honest man when he is nothing more than a scumbag who was born with money and he still managed to defraud hundreds of people including some poor immigrants who were working 12 hours a day, seven days a week.
Blaming Trump for what his sub-contractors did is nonsense.

He can't control their hiring.

You libs want all this illegal immigration, so YOU are in no position to criticize Trump or anyone else.

The Obama economy is a disaster. No doubt about it.
Yeah, nothing says "disaster" like 5% unemployment and a 2.5% year to year increase in wages. How it makes me long for the glory days of 2008.

You can thank the obstructionist Republicans for the slow recovery, but even they couldn't halt it forever.

Wrong. He has management skills, and he plans to use them in government.

Wrong. He has management skills. Proven. Unlike Obama and Hillary.

Wrong. If you bothered to read his positions and watch his interviews, you would know this. But of course you're not interested, or you're just into misrepresenting him no matter what.

Your post is the sort of glib, sophomoric cant that would impress a lefty college professor who peddles lies and propaganda.

Sorry, it won't fly here.

He related the situations in both of those countries with what is currently happening in Syria and seemed to endorse a stronger Bashar Assad, even while admitting that he is “probably a bad guy.” “You can make the case, if you look at Libya, look at what we did there – it’s a mess – if you look at Saddam Hussein with Iraq, look what we did there – it’s a mess – it’s [Syria] going to be same thing,” the real estate mogul said."

and this

"And they kept our equipment. They always keep our equipment. We ought to send used equipment, right? They always keep our equipment, we ought to send some real junk because, frankly, it would be – we ought to send our surplus. We’re always losing this gorgeous, brand-new stuff."


then he says this

Trump also said he backed some US troops - perhaps 10,000 - in the region but would instead focus on targeting Islamic State's oil and banking operations.

So he wants us to stay involved with the use of force, just go in a different direction. Yea that'll solve things.
So what's your great solution?

Bringing terrorists into this country the way Obama wants to do?

LOL nobody except for the paid democrat party on-line posters buy into the BS made up government statistic sound bites anymore. 5%? Go out and actually apply for an average job and see just how "plentiful" jobs are out there now. Look at the 100 million people who aren't even trying to look for a job. Look at the near 0% prime rate, which it has been for years now. Saying the economy is doing wonderful under Obama while the fed is dumping money and the prime is 0%, is like saying a heart attack patient is doing wonderful while the person is constantly being administered a defibrillator and pumped full of nitrates. You watch, all it's going to take is Yellen to jake up the prime interest rate 0.01% (bet she will do it right around the 2016 election), and your great 5% will collapse like the house of cards that it is.

Are these Democrat / Hillary posters serious? Trump doesn't have the qualifications to lead? Conservatives have been wondering this about Obama for the last, oh 9 years. For 3,285 days, there has been going back and forth about this on City Data and elsewhere. And in fact, there's plenty of examples where he is NOT fit for being president, so we were right. Where were these Trump questioners then? Oh that's right, they were on City Data and elsewhere either constantly ignoring these blunders or defending it. And now they are wondering about Trump's qualifications?

At this point, all people who question Trump while are silent about Obama, have absolutely ZERO, I mean ZERO credibility and should be ignored.

Doom-and-gloom predictions = weak. Bring facts, not anecdotes, please.

I'm still waiting for that double dip recession were supposed to experience in 2012. Any minute now, eh?

Btw, I never said the economy is doing "wonderful", but it is MILES better than the cataclysm George W Bush left us in 2008. In fact, 2013-2015 has been the best three-year stretch for job creation since...1998-2000, when another Democrat held the White House.

How can wages increase 2.5% every year but median family income is stagnant at best?

The Census Bureau estimated real median household income at $53,657 for 2014 and $54,462 in 2013.

You can thank the big government supporters for the weak recovery, since the very ones who ruined the economy can't be counted on to fix it.

Don't listen to you or Trump. How about we quit killing innocents in the Middle East and bring the troops home to defend our borders. You know follow the Constitution.

Cut off ALL immigration for now. Get rid of the birth right citizenship that allows people to profit off of an illegal act.
