Is America in for a down fall with Donald Trump as it's president?
The hay day!
Donald Trump's mother may have been an immigrant, but his father was wealthy and when Donald Trump talks about working, it has never been the same time of work like most Americans.
Donald Trump grew up in Queens, but not like everyone else. He attended a private school where his father was a board trustee. His temper and behavior according to his father, landed him at the New York Military Academy until he graduated. He went on to attend Fordham University for 2 years and then went to Wharton University in Pennsylvania.
When he graduated, he received a position in his fathers company Elizabeth Trump & Sons, where he worked during the summer's in school and saved over a a million dollars from his summer pay. 1968, fresh out of college and making a multi-million dollar salary.
Unstable at best
Do ever notice how when "the Donald" talks, it's always about "Me, Myself and I". A shrink could have a field day analyzing the borderline personality disorders of this individual who is running for the highest political office of this country.
Do American's really want this man in charge of it's destiny? The Republicans do!
Donald Trump has such a flat out disrespect for women, you would think he had mommy issues. One can scarcely find information on his mother or their relationship, but you can find much on his crass description and feelings for women, even more so if they are not subservient. When Rosie O'Donnell made a comment about his business history, he called her a big fat pig. When Megan Kelly of Fox News was doing her job and asking him questions during a debate, he called her a bimbo among other things on tweeter. When a NY Times writer published an article about his financial problems, he sent her a copy of the column with a circle around her picture and the "the face of a dog" written over the picture. When his ex-wife filed for divorce, she accused him of rape, then downgraded it to feeling "violated" by her husband.
The Republican party has not won over the women's vote since 1988. With this belief and history from presidential candidate Donald Trump, it is highly unlikely that he will get the woman's vote.
#1 Presidential Candidate?
Would you support Donald Trump for President?
Skirted the War- Shame on Him
Donald Trump skirted the war, no matter what he say's, the facts are facts. How can any Veteran support this man for President?
He says, he built a beautiful Vietnam Memorial in lower Manhattan for which he contributed "tremendous" sums of money. Is that suppose to comfort the families of those that lost loved one's in Vietnam, while he partied and earned millions, not likely.
Donald Trump avoided serving his country. To hear him say it, it was the luck of the draw. He got chosen high on the list, #356 out of 365 and so he didn't have to serve.
- He filed 4 student deferments that kept him from going to Vietnam.
- 1968, he graduated from Wharton University and filed a medical deferment that he had bone spurs in both heels.
- 1968, he was already worth over $1 million dollars and working full time for his father's company, Elizabeth Trump & Son's.
He was quoted as saying that he would never forget that he was at Wharton University watching the draft numbers being drawn. This would have been impossible because the drawing took place, December of 1969, eighteen months after he had graduated and had been working at his father's company. Since he had attended a Military school and graduated, it is most likely that he would have been taken sooner because of his experience. And when Donald Trump was asked which foot he had spurs on, he couldn't remember, he was however allowed to play squash, racket ball and sports on his deferment, but he wasn't allowed to fight for his country.
Business sense---this is how we can expect to have our country run
When it comes to business "the Donald" loves to say three words "I'm really rich", To hear him boast, he's worth $10 billion. If that's the case why did he file his election paperwork stating that he's worth, $1.4 billion, $70 million of it in stocks and $265 million of it in debt. When questioned, he said it "fluctuates". $10 billion is quite a bit more than $1. 4 billion. Are the American people to believe that there is that much fluctuation in business or that "the Donald" has a tendency to stretch the truth?
- 1988- Because of pour business decisions, he was loosing his fortune.
- 1991- His business was bankrupt, but he covered his personal finances. Banks & Bond holders lost hundreds of millions of dollars.
- Late 1990's - his dad dies and he inherits approx. $300 million dollars.
- 1991- Taj Mahal
- 1992- Trump Plaza
- 2001- Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts
- 2009- Trump Entertainment Resorts
- 2014- Trump Entertainment Resorts again.
He lost the Trump Princess Yacht and the Trump Shuttle during the 1990's.
He said it best as to how he handles his business. When he gets in trouble financially, he "uses the laws of this country to pare debt." In other words, he defaults on his loans and negotiates for less, leaves his investors hanging and moves on until the next time he needs to pare debt.
One question, leads to another on how he will run this country. If he is worth $10 billion dollars, why file bankruptcy in 2014?
Donald Trump the man does well enough to keep himself afloat, but is American ready for this man to take control of it's finances?
