102 surely you jest? Trump is one of the dumbest people i have ever seen at a higher level in politics.

Trump is just not smart enough to know how dumb he is, and he is surrounded by people who seem to be afraid of telling him the truth.

Trump never talks detailed policy, he never ever engages in detailed debate or discussion in public. Because he is out of his depth and he knows it.
Trump knows he is in over his head. But even knowing this I believe trump still over estimates his intelligence. He still seems to think he is smarter even though it is bloody obvious trump's wealth is based on dishonest behavior and extreme privilege. That wealth allows him to fool himself into thinking he is clever. His dad might have been, some of his siblings too. But Trump? naw the dude has the gift of the gab and little more.

IN the past i have challenged Trump supporters to post any video where Trump discusses policy in a detailed and granular way. None have ever come up with one.

i have at least half dozen posts on this site asking for any video where Trump talks about healthcare or tax reform or any important issue in a detailed way like we would see any number of leader discuss a topic.

there are hours and hours of every other POTUS in few decades where they discuss policy matters in detail, describing the inner workings, discussing pitfalls, and benefits etc...

Trump talks like an il prepare 8th grade debater. ie he attacks, talks loudly and makes lots of sweeping generalisations in place of discrete points and nuance...

Trump is simply not smart enough to deal with public policy like a real leader. he relies very heavily on others to understand and tell him what to do and think in public.

Trump has been promoted far beyond his skill set, Trump's best destiny would have been carnival barker.

Don't forget having the money to get zoning bills passed, greasing the palms of city officials, etc.

After being given Millions and then bailed out by Daddy more than once after losing it and using bankruptcy laws to stay afloat, yes such a success. Oh and it is doubtful he is a Billionaire any longer.


Doing Great, Thanks for asking.

A politician is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you will actually look forward to the trip.Trump just tells you to go to hell.I like His honesty very refreshing.

I fail to see anything in this video that would indicate he is inarticulate. Perhaps you are suffering under a mistaken idea that his accent as a New Yorker indicates a lower level of intelligence, as a result of watching old movies that use characters with thick northeastern accents to portray low life individuals. At one point in my life, growing up in Ohio, I had that mistaken belief. After actually living in the NYC area as well as Massachusetts for several years, I discovered that there are some very intelligent people living there that have the typical NY/Boston accents.

If this is the case, then it may well be you that is somewhat deficient in intelligence.

Anyone that thinks trumps speaking issues is only his NY accent should not be questioning anyone else's intelligence

Then lets hear what you see in that video that makes him inarticulate. So far, even the person who posted the video has failed to outline that.

Default Even a young Trump doesn't sound intelligent

It doesn't matter Trump is still the president for 7 more years
