He is not wrong on many fronts, he is right on. You would need to be specific in order for that to be addressed. And, learn how to use "google".

You can't pick one part of the Trump on the issues and see it without combining it would the rest. He has a comprehensive plan, like building blocks.

He is also not a "buffoon" and by using that word to describe a candidate, well, let's say one has to consider the source when they use such terms.
Trump doesn't understand trade. Your comment is comical. Lol

If there's anyway he's elected, the American project would be in danger and our reputation will be compromised.
Obama has been wrong on so many fronts and is a failure yet he got re elected. Never under estimate Boobus.

Except that I wouldn't describe someone who has been living and working here for 20 years as a tourist. Again, I'm sure that tourist sounds like a clever word to you, and gets a guffaw or two from the boys at the VFW, but that isn't how most people see the issue. Immigration is a complicated issue, but the tide has definitely turned towards the public supporting some way of legitimizing people who have contributed positively to U.S. society for many years.

I live near the border, I've been married to a Latina for 16 years, and I was in Mexico weekend before last. These issues are all around us here. I don't where you live, if you're talking about people who live far away from you, or at least a few blocks, but it's reality in my neck of the woods. And most of us are trying to work out a reasonable compromise for our friends and neighbors.

That is comical, protectionism is not a new concept, tariffs are not a new idea. How is a real estate developer with a spotty record the person best equipped to set trade policy.

He'll have a lot of people who support him. You do, obviously. He just doesn't have demographics on his side in a general election. Stranger things have happened, and you have to play the game, as they say, but I don't see it for him.

What has Ted Cruz done as a US Senator to stop illegal immigration?

John Gotti is completely relevant considering he was often referred to as the 'Teflon Don", I'd say that title has been well and truly taken over by Donny Trump.
Nope

This was the point made.
Corrupt politicians pick business winners & losers. Force business to operate this way.
Trump in being held hostage to this system, knows this all too well.

You did not address it. Instead, you made generalization about Trump's supporters and John Gotti.

I've already had a cheater, and a lier as leaders. I have a televangelist, someone who thinks it's OK to compromise National security and another willing to cause another depression giving away freebies to consider - actually the buffoon is the best of the lot - he may act ridiculous but it doesn't mean he's not smart and more committed than the rest.

I wouldn't have put it exactly like that, but I understand what you're staying. Still, I don't think it matters much. A lot of her supporters are giddy about supporting a female candidate and take pains to justify and spin everything that she's done.

"He may be an SOB, but he's our SOB." FDR

And she is rich and powerful. The lesson of the O.J. trial was that race and gender don't matter, money does. They won't be hauling her off in leg irons any time soon.

So you can't even show us one bill Cruz sponsored with respect to illegal immigration?
