How is he an outsider?

He does after all boast about buying politicians in the 'pay to play' game.

He may have been a buyer rather than a seller but he's still been playing the same game.

Chapter 11 is used by many well known companies all the time. Chapter 11 is not chapter 7. 11 does not mean its vendors will not get paid. Its a tool that allows time for the business to reorganize in order to pay its obligations. The nature of some businesses are more vulnerable than others so even the best intentions can lead to chapter 11 eventually.

the others for the most part are a little more honest and are willing to realize they are not kings and queens. Well most of them anyway. they also know it takes 2 sides to make things work, he thinks it can be done just cause he is rich!!!! I don't really think he got into this race to win, but now he is in deep and doesn't know how to get out. No matter what he says or does his supporters kiss his XXXX

What I find off-putting about Trump is that when something like Filing Chapter 11 is questioned his response is something like 'That wasn't me, that was the company' but when his company does something good it's like 'I did that!".

How can Sanders supporters not see that he's a delusional, doddering, irascible old man with a monomania about the current economy who has one foot in the nursing home if not the grave?


No accounting for taste!

Sound business decision for the business. I think you expect too much from people.

So anybody who filed bankruptcy cannot be presidential candidate? That is rather harsh, isn't that?

Do you pay full credit debt if Consolidation is your option? please.

Sound familar, doesn't it? I don't get how his supporters fail to see the similarities between Trump and the current White House resident.

If your stated primary example of why you are qualified to be president is that you are a great businessman, it is an example that you aren't.
