    Will Trump make a good president?

    I think his hair alone would disqualify him for any office. It's Uuuge.

    I'd hesitate to elect anyone to the presidency who has never run for any office before - much less ever been elected to one.

      I agree no other top position occupation would one consider hiring someone who has absolutely no experience. Neither Trump or Dr. Carson has ever legislated a bill, been elected, or served in any government capacity ever.

    OMG NO!  How can any person whose stated ideas include labeling large masses of people as rapists, and who wants to "build a wall" between nations be the leader of the great U.S.A.?

    I believe he'd be much better than our current president or Hilliary. I like his common sense approach to problems and his willingness to speak his mind despite the blowback from the PC police and the media's attempt to discredit him.

    Having said this though, I don't believe he's electable and I question his stance on social issues that are important to me.

      Entrepreneurs would be highly frustrated with the legislative process. They're not use to (needing votes) to pass their ideas. You can't fire congress! These days anyone outside of the system is attractive to many people. However it's unrealistic

    Donald Trump's way of working is "my way, or the highway", which cannot work in any government office. A good leader would be able to unite people from every party, so they could work towards the common goal of making things better. Trump's catch phrase is "you're fired". How would that work? Would he tell Congress or The Supremes they're fired if they don't agree with him? Our government just isn't structured to have a dictator at the top.

    He's a self-promoting clown who has never been elected to office, and doesn't deal well with those who agree with him. He'd never make a good president. Fortunately, he'll never get elected.

      "My Way or the highway" and NOT uniting people has been exactly what Obama stands for.

      This is Q&A and not a debate.  The question is specifically about Donald Trump.

      Well Marie, the question also had to do with the job of POTUS. No need 2 get your panties n a bunch because we r talking about king Obama

      BizWhiz, Are you referring to Obama's Executive orders? He has fewer of them many other presidents. In fact I'd say (all presidents) are guilty of pushing their agenda and party's platform. None of them are kings. LOL!

      The king reference is 2 Marie's offense 2 our bringing up Obama.

      I hear you. Some people think the guy walks on water!
      Personally I think he's far from being the best or the worst president. Politics has become more of a sport for each party's "fans" to root for. It's not about solutions anymore.

      You took the words right out of my mouth! I think it stems from our "made-to-order news". People can order off a menu the news is slanted to their point of view

    Trump is not going to win the Republican nomination.
    Entrepreneurs don't play well with others. They're use to giving orders and having people follow them or be fired.
    The president can't fire congress!
    Once the discussion during the debates turns to foreign policy matters that go beyond trade and have to do with diplomacy it will show Trump's lack of knowledge regarding exiting treaties and pacts with other countries and their leaders.
    People will question if he should be in charge of the nuke codes.
    Lastly his "trump card" no pun intended is having been successful as a businessman. However Donald Trump has filed for corporate bankruptcy four times, in 1991, 1992, 2004 and 2009. That's not a glowing report for someone who claims they can turn the economy around. A country can't eliminate debt by simply filing bankruptcy.
    My prediction is if he continues to poll high the other Republicans will attack him in hopes of forcing him to drop out of the primaries.
    If Donald feels attacked he will fight back by running as a third party candidate. His ego won't allow others to determine candidacy.
    This would make him the Ross Perot of 2016 as he would be taking away Republican votes and guaranteeing Hilary Clinton wins the presidency easily. Either way he will be interesting to watch.

    The only good president is a dead president.
    How can you elect 'good' when you've no real choice? The candidates from which you can choose are nothing more than pre-baked rolls. Trump will be the worst thing that happened America in more than hundred years.

    I don't know.  He talks a good talk, but is his mouth writing checks that his butt can't cash?  I didn't think Obama would go anywhere, and as you can see, I was wrong about him.

    No. He is selfish. He has selfish ambitions and a public servant is not like that. Public office is a public trust; it is for the benefit and interest of the public. Any act of discrimination is definitely outside of the scope.

    --Questionable business practices.
    --Hot-tempered, could not deal with foreign leaders.
    --No concept of how our government works and therefore, cannot tell a congressman that "You're fired.
    --Could possibly start a nuclear war by yelling '"you're fired."
    --Dose not understand government, the plight of the poor, the need to work with other nations and will be angry when he is stopped from renaming the White House "Trump's Palace-Loosest Slots in Town."
    --I do not want Hillary Clinton to be president. She started out as a good secretary of state," but then became less appealing as a leader. I will see who the Democrats pick and assuming the GOP candidate is Hillary Clinton, I will make my difficult choice on election day. I live in Louisiana. I am not voting for Bobby Jindal, but did vote for him as governor and was very disappointed in his leadership. However, Jindal would trump Trump. (Don't you really hate those kinds of puns.)

    The bar has been set so low by the previous presidents that Trump couldn't noticeably do worse.

    But, there is a possibility that he might shake the gridlock out of congress, and that is not something that an incumbent in congress can do, and it hasn't been done by recent incumbent presidents that have been reelected.

    It is the political system, and the loyal party voters that continues to fail the country.
