He says it like it is and pulls no punches.
The GOP really don't care for him but it will show who is who in the party. The establisment will be just that. They will lean left to distance themselves from the more conservative right. That will only make them get closer to what the Democrats are doing. Race and immigration. Jeb Bush is looking more like a RINO everytime he opens his mouth.
I like Trump and his attitude toward the media and rino's.
Can he win the nomination?
Don't think so, but I would like to see him set the tone for what conservative want in a presidential candidate.

He is a in your face, my way or the highway, I am right and your wrong kind of person.
That being said he knows how to run a business and build it up when it is down.


From a diplomatic standpoint he could say FU to a few countries that have been back stabbing us for years, Threaten a few countries we should not threaten, and cluster bomb a good portion of the areas that would enjoy watching our cities burn.

From a economic stand point I see him lowering out debt(slightly), increasing regulation on government programs, increasing the tax benefits companies receive keeping them domestic, increasing service members benefits and defense in general, increasing our exported goods, and increasing import taxes across the board in a effort to lower debt further.

He has been planning on this for 7 years and I imagine he has plans waiting on the back burner that will go into effect within the first 3 months.

That being said I don't think he will get into office unless he has something in his back pocket to get more voters.

He is the Anti-Politician. He doesn't give a fukc about their games or the status quo and he has been planning this for a very very long time.

Look at the momentum. The media is scared absolutely shitless. Every reporter that tries to attack him gets wrecked.

He waited for the perfect time and look at how fired up people are.

This isn't a gimmick. This is a potential landslide victory. Even if Republicans don't nominate him he'll just go Independent and with the momentum he already has... The two party system is shaking in its boots.

I like that he will use his own money so he won't be controlled by special interest groups.

Trump currently leads the Republican field in several polls taken of likely GOP primary voters nationally and in primary states like North Carolina.

He's a brash dumb asshole. He kinda reminds me of Zapp Branigan from Futurama, but with more money.
He's the poster child for the Dunning-Kruger effect, which says, in sum, that the dumber you are, the more confident you are that you’re not actually dumb.
When he encounters experts who disagree with him, he'll dismiss them in order to maintain a unreasonably high opinion of himself.
Yes he's never actually gone bankrupt, but his businesses had under his command, and he's actually sued people and banks because he's fucked up. He's like Greece, but somehow with less greasy hair.
He follows the money, and is only really into it for himself. When politics shift, he'll shift. Its why you see campaign donations going to both sides.
There have been many dealings where he's pretty much said that he's only in it for himself. I don't see how that is something I want someone representing me to think.

I don't see him going much farther than the primaries. He'll fukc up by then.

The fact that the hairless wonder is leading the Republican field is a huge signal as to how completely fucked up the GOP is. I'm voting for Mr Hanky

Maybe Trump is someone we need to strike a line and say we're not going any further. Take us down a different path.

So your a Hillary guy eh? You don't think a guy who's really good at running things should run the country? If your Hillary gets elected, can we change the word to cuntry?

Everyone is so tired of politicians that they made Donald Trump look like our best option.

That says A LOT about the situation in this country.

If he stays the course and no one else steps up like he has... I will vote for him.

You sound like a pessimist. Open your eyes, he is a business man not a politician. He knows what he is doing. His hair is a different story, lol
