Whatever trump is involved is only for trump.

I used to think he was really something until what he ( and tried to do ) to his Wife, the Mother of his Children. And then how he talked out of both sides of his mouth regarding the Japanese who essentially saved his rear end and who he backstabbed. Not to be trusted.

Probably the attributes which are necessary to become a politician.

What he did to Ivana was cheat on her. And when she divorced him, he did not contest the divorce. The argument was about money - and it was settled. And she has gone forward to continue to be a great businesswoman and build her own wealth.

He wasn't treated so kindly by wife #2. The mother of one of his children. But she had a prenup. So did he, good for both of them, really.

Those divorces were far better than the oneformer NJ gov McGreevey is putting his wife through, humiliating her for everything and commenting publicly on it all while she is silent. But Trump had nothing to gain from negative publicity, and McGreevey thrives on it no matter what.

Trump does what is good for trump - but if it is good for everyone else too, who cares?

I'm definitely voting against it, because Donald Trump and the Realtors are for it.... In all seriousness, this exemption stuff is a poison pill that voters are probably going to say "yes" to, but it really is going to hurt the quality of life in the long term. Government budgets will have to be cut severely. Cutting education is NOT OK in my book. Plus trying to stoke an already overheated housing market is just criminally stupid (felony stupid?).

When is a politician going to come in and take Florida back for the working class Floridians, and not the retirees and speculators? The ones that don't benefit from population growth and government policies dependent on this growth (which is what the government budget expansion has been- feeding off and stoking the fires of real-estate/population growth)? If people can't afford Florida living... they should just leave. At some point Florida's population will destroy the state, it's pretty much already destroyed California, do we really want to go down the path of becomming like California?
