Having a brilliant business leader who obviously loves his country as President would not be nearly as dire as progressives believe it would be. We have checks and balances to prevent his crazier ideas from being passed. You and this author obviously believe that if he wins the nomination that he will lose to Hillary so why do you really care?
JP Morgan was a a brilliant business leader. Trump inherited his money and lost it serveral times. Bankruptcy used to be a sign of failure, of incompetence, or greed. Now, people like Trump regularly renege on promises to creditors by just going bankrupt. Many people PLAN on going bankrupt before even starting a business. I don't call that brilliance, but not being good for one's word. And we want such a person to be PRESIDENT?
He loves his country? He loves white people. No presidential candidate since Strom Thurmond has fanned the flames of bigotry, racism, and intolerance as Trump has. And not because he actually believes what he says. He's playing to the crowd, appealing to their basest instincts, and playing them like a fiddle.
Until recently he was a liberal Democrat, a personal friend and financial supporter of the Clintons. I trust no one who changes their core principles for gain. That's just what he's done.
The reason I care about this has little to do with whom I think will win. I find it depressing that American citizens could sell out the principles this society is supposed to be based on by supporting this man for the world's highest office. I find it unbelievable.
