It really does look like Trump was running for president to prop up his flailing brand. Then, to everyone's surprise, he won. Now he gets to increase his income on the backs of taxpayers and those who contribute to his campaign.

Easy... President OrangeGlow has been a con man all his life, with plenty of disaster and fallout in his wake, and now he gets to claim hijacking a political party to add to his laundry list of disasters.

Trump represents the worst of humanity, and will end up in the history books among the worst of businessmen and worst of presidents.

It would be awesome if some outlet could track down all of the various contractors and companies Trump has shafted over the years and tabulated the total amount he has failed to pay those who did work for him.

Lots of discussion about whether post-presidency Trump will be an even bigger threat to American security, since he'll be even more aggrieved and embittered and in a position to sell American secrets as his hundreds of millions in debts come due.

Some Duke Law students have been tracking the Trump Admin's illegalities. See my thread this morning about it.

Don't forget to include hookers and porn stars, they need their voice heard also.

Maybe it's time you woke up and exited the cult. Your country depends on it.

They don't care about the country. They care about their own social views and their own social standing.

You children need to get out more. Most wealthy people "hide" their wealth within trusts and corporations due to tax breaks. If you really believe that Trump is poor you are deluding yourselves. And don't fool yourselves, rich people don't pay taxes like the rest of us. Rich people live in a different world, with different rules.

Some do more than others, they can to a point but it's not unlimited, trump is a fraud who has hugely exaggerated his wealth and he has a lot of debt, and to the extent the rich DO have corrupt rules giving them unique ways to scam the country, it's because Republicans have fought to give it to them, because the Republican party is nothing more than leaders who serve the rich, and useful idiot voters who are conned and/or pandered to on side issues.

This. I don't think Trump expected or even intended to win. When he started doing well in the primary, his ego took over.

Indeed, don’t forget his son, daughter and son-in-law who now are hard working members of his staff, paid by the millions, Each hour paid for at least 3 times: Paid for as employee of the state, paid as a consultant of the state and paid by the republican party as work for the campaign.

They do. Because he said so. All you have to do is look at the past history of this man to know the truth. Most voted for him because they like his supreme whiteness.
