Donald Trump For President!

He is currently leading the polls, but who really believes he's fit for president?

What do you think separates him from the other candidates and do you think he'll actually win?!

I'm hearing a certain tax plan he has, not sure if it true though.

So far, he's been remarkably light on policy details. Not sure if I support his policy on anything, since it's not clear yet what they are.

All I know for sure is that he hates Mexicans, soldiers who get captured, and women who ask legitimate questions about inflammatory comments he has made in the past that are a matter of public record. Gotta expect that in public life. Ignoring the questions and personally attacking the questioner will get old real quick.

I'd love to see a more fiscally conservative POTUS than the last 8 years, but based on what I've seen so far, not sure how he would be able to establish any sort of respectful, mutually beneficial working relationship with any foreign leader. It's like he tries to rub people the wrong way.

The moment they offered any statement which serves their own countries agenda more than the USA (perfectly reasonable thing for a foreign leader to do after all), he will respond by calling them a horrible loser, probably to their face.

Can't we get some fiscal conservatism in a less embarrassing package?

Trump is nothing more than an attention whore. He'll have to run as an independent, 'cause the GOP will give him the boot eventually.

Mr. Trump, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I dunno, calling out Rosie O'Donnell and Megyn Kelly in the GOP Debate was pretty good. The point where he also calls out all the guys he has funded in the past was pretty epic.

Fuck I hope he wins, even if just for the jokes alone. Then you guys can deal with a leader like Rob Ford in Toronto.



Remember, this guy is an anti-vaxer! HA HA HA!

Honestly I'm more worried about the mass of people that think he is a viable candidate to run this country.
The whole idea of someone that's already wealthy becoming a politician to champion for the people is stuff from the comic books; but Donald Trump isn't anywhere close to a Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark.
Trump is entertaining to watch in this format, but that's about it....
Listening to him make pointless remarks about Rosie O'Donnell, Megyn Kelly and a whole host of other people that don't matter should be showing people how limited his views are; and too, how ridiculous it would be to vote for someone that's not smart enough to focus on real issues.
My idea of a presidential candidate would be someone that's not afraid to say what's necessary in an intelligent manner, on the issues that matter. I would love to see someone go after every last politician's voting records, side and back door deals. You really want change expose them all and boot them out of office.

As leaders go, he doesn't have the demeanor, temperament, level-headedness, compassion, thick-skin-ed ness () to even come remotely close to being the POTUS. The fact that he is leading in the polls completely baffles me.

Actually, its quite sad, and it says a lot more about the people in this country more than anything else to be quite honest. That is the more humiliating part.
