    Trump diverts the question when he has no clue how to answer it. Have you noticed?

    While watching the debates, I have noticed that whenever Trump is asked a question that he has no idea how to answer, he diverts the question and then changes the conversation. Why is he running for President of our United States of America when he isn't educated in how to run it?

    He did answer. But used most of his 2 minutes attacking Clinton.

    4) Q: (ObamaCare) What will you do to bring the costs down and make coverage better?  A: We have to repeal it, and replace it with something absolutely much less expensive. And something that works. Where your plan can actually be tailored. We have to get rid of the lines around the state, artificial lines. ... It is a disastrous plan and it has to be repealed and replaced.
    5) Q: Are going to have a mandate that Americans have to have health insurance? A: When we get rid of those lines you will have competition.

      Not that he doesn't answer EVERY question he was asked, but throughout his speaking engagements when he is uncomfortable with a question, he simply throws any answer out, whether or not it's relevant to the question asked, and changes the subject.

    Really, So you think that Trump is the only one to do that. What was your goal for this question. I don't see any point here.

      First, did I mention I said he was the only one to do that? Secondly, when you ask a question, you should use the correct punctuation. Third, it's not very nice to put someone down when they're new at this and learning. Shame on you.
