Running a business and running a government are not the same skillset. Governments have a fundamentally different purpose that Trump simply is not capable of leading.

Just imagine that megalomaniac in charge of a military.

Ok.. I've imagined Trump of the military.. He'd probably reduce its size quite a bit, close down a few bases etc.. What exactly am I supposed to be imagining thats so terrible?

Everyone is worth a look, but Trump? It's probably more self-publicity than actual intent.

We don't directly manipulate our currency...there is no need to since we are the monetary hegemon and can do it indirectly.

I don't see him doing that at all. Just look at how he contrives controversies to pump ratings for his beauty pagents and reality TV empire. He's a narcissistic opportunist who seeks glory and fame over all else.

Seriously - we shouldn't have to mention beauty pageant and reality TV when discussing a potential leader of the free world. Obama's doing just fine, thank you.

well yes, but the fact that we print in droves and then run a protection racket in the middle east to guarantee a home for those dollars, is much worse than an peg

You are aware of ALL the construction projects he has done and is doing in the US, employing Americans, aren't you?

That sounds exactly like obama! But without the business sense and leadership qualities of Trump.

As far as beauty pageants and such, what was with the NCAA basketball picks televised on ESPN but narcissistic and opportunistic?

He's the POTUS, in name.

Trump is a private citizen.

Yea, but unless they're funded by the taxpayers and built by union labor, it doesn't count to a leftist.
