Not hard to look more articulate than Mr. Choom Gang.

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.

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.
OUCH! ...but, certainly not untrue.

Not letting facts stand in my way. What I say stands.

Inheriting massive wealth is MASSIVELY advantageous.

If Trump did nothing and just left what he inherited in the bank, he would be just as wealthy, if not more wealthy according to various reports.

He also has a history of bankruptcy - he has had to file for bankruptcy 6 times for his companies.

He also has a history of ripping people off and not paying them.

Real estate is a poor investment engine. Good investors would never put their money into real estate at similar proportions to that of capital assets.

If Donny was smart as he claims, he would have left real estate and put his money in the stock index.

I read how he once said during some interview that he "is the same as he was when seven" or "hadn't changed since he was seven".

He said it himself. (Yet he was likely referring to his "being just as tough" or something).

Funny how he no longer has that heavy New York City accent.

He also is saying things that would make conservatives heads burst (the cities are going to make a big comeback, specifically the inner cities)

If our country is really that naive and ignorant to elect him a second time....then we will truly lose our standing in the world as the leader of the world. I think we already have though. That may not be important to you as an individual but it will cost us

It wasn't as much about money as it was trying to earn his father's approval, which some might classify as trying to earn his father's love.

Trump is a buffoon but I don't think this video is a good example of his buffoonery. He actually makes some pretty good predictions

He predicted that the cities would come back, and they did, albeit at the expense of the suburbs.

Which makes me suspect that he isn't really dumb but probably has dementia or alzheimers
