Trump may be the next POTUS but he will always be a loser in life.
He has no real friends if he did you would have seen them supporting his campaign. Children and paid employees don't count.
Inferiority complex, Absolutely!
And yet he is still the President and still a billionaire, and still raised 5 hardworking children. You guys are just devastated because politically neoliberalism is DEAD!

It may not be their fault (the immigrants), but due to the fact they are simply there, american workers can continue to be screwed over. So frankly, I understand why so many people are vehemently anti-illegal immigration and anti-illegal immigrant, because the more illegals there are, the more politicians pander to them, and the easier it is for more illegals to come.

Edit: Well, maybe the above seems a little extreme, but the point I'm trying to make is that saying "blaming the immigrants themselves is wrong, ONLY BLAME GREEDY CEOS AND POLITICIANS (especially pro-illegal politicians)" is mostly right but not TOTALLY right.

Great, so you admit that an overpowering central government won't fix the issues. Now all you have to do is stop voting for them.

If the economy is noticeably better in 4 years, I would vote for Trump. We will have to wait and see.

The Trump family has multiplied their wealth generation after generation. Are you better off today than your parents? From your posts, I'd asume not.

Is anyone who is under ~25-30 now better off than their parents (among people whose family has been in the USA a couple of generations)?

I doubt very many are, except people who were extremely rich to begin with.

What's wrong with the Trump children having been born into a wealthy family? Is it better to be born into a poor family? Is it a bad thing that the Trump family is well off?

Compared to many other children of wealthy parents, they've conducted themselves well appear to be mature. All three of the older children are in (seemingly) successful marriages, and two of them have families they're raising. There aren't many reports of drug/gambling/alcohol problems or excessive partying.

What makes you think they're not hardworking? Just b/c they joined the family business doesn't mean they're not hardworking or focused.
