If he is really worth $10 billion, $400K per year salary as POTUS is like $0.0004 to the rest of us. After taxes, it would be maybe half that. So, why would he care . . . . would you care about $0.0004? All the free publicity he has been getting 24/7 for the last 8 months is worth billions of dollars to his "brand."

Unfortunately, Trump supporters are in for the same disappointment and frustration that Obama supporters faced when Obama took office and failed at all the things he promised and the things he did do resulted in disaster.
Not even remotely close. Obama can spit out policy in his sleep; Trump probably thinks mustard gas is made with actual mustard.

If you have a problem with the policies Obama failed to enact, direct your anger to the GOP-house and their obstructionist policies.

he has lots to lose, in particular the destruction of the name he's spent decades building and protecting. if he becomes a horrible President, no one will ever remember his business accomplishments, no matter how much they are plastered all over the world.

I wonder how many liberals, wont buy condos in his properties etc, even though you know for a fact, they wont ever tolerate living next to illegals etc..

Trump is such a little bit*h, threatening to sue Cruz. He can kiss the conservative/Evangelical vote goodbye. If little Megyn Kelly and Cruz ads can rattle him this badly, what's going to happen if he becomes President and Putin and Kim Jung Un starts messing with him? He's a liberal, RINO flip flopping reality show circus clown

Obama ran around and just made results of his policies up as he went along. His claimed premiums would fall 3,000% for example..

He just LIED...

yeah, sure... that great name. the one tied to four bankruptcies, picking on little old ladies, manipulating politics/government to get what he wants, alleged raping his wife, messing around and getting his lover pregnant, tacky reality show, childish rants against Macy's, not to mention his vulgar mouth.... Being a horrible president isn't wouldn't take that name any lower than he has already.

I'm not what you'd call a Trump supporter. I just don't think he is the worst person for the job. We could do worse. I do believe he actually loves this country unlike a couple of other people.

I dont think filing bankruptcy is illegel. If a law on the books benefits you, use it.

As far as the religion thing...eh. many a folk who goto church on a regular basis and commit all types of sins. His were just public.

And men out there would do a lot more marrying of models and hot actresses if they had ACCESS to them. he has access. I'm not mad at him, I just admire and wish I could be in on it

Disney, Hershey, and even Ford, all filed Bankruptcy.. I dont give a **** about his bankruptcies, his success rate is huge..

As for the rest, they are no different than Bill Clintons, and no one today even knows about them, because no on in the history books, gives a ****.

I didn't even need to search for more than 10 seconds. I just used Google and words like "Trump lawsuits" and it seems as if he's spent half his life suing people. This is from 2013

[url=http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/03/the-lawsuits-of-donald-trump/273819/]The Lawsuits of Donald Trump - The Atlantic[/url]

Here's one from 2015

[url=http://fortune.com/2015/08/14/donald-trump-lawsuits/]Donald Trump's Most Ridiculous Lawsuits - Fortune[/url]

There are too many to post, but filing a lawsuit is something Trump apparently does when he disagrees with someone or is offended by a comment. Yes, this surely is the type of leader we need in the White House.
