I think Donald Trump would make a fantastic President for the USA he is a man of real substance he knows how business is run he is very nery rich and a straight talking man,i have listened to many hours of him talking.

He takes no C-rap from China and Russia,he will deal with Iran as well,i also know not many members of CHU will agree with me,but right now the USA needs a very Strong President and i think President Obama is soft on everything almost.

No. If anything, Roseanne Barr should have won just for the lulz.

Donald Trump is a good businessman but not a great one, he nearly ruined his parents company when he took over, now he is worth a few billion dollars, but he is actually in debt.

He has borrowed billions to pay for projects like the Golf course in Scotland, Various Hotel complexes etc.

Only by selling them will he be back in the black (i.e. money actually in the bank to spend).. but he won't do that he will rely on money coming in from these places to keep the bank happy and pay some monies here and there to pay off his huge debt.

A suite alone to buy at Trump Tower is in the region of $45m. And thats just a suite, for that money you could have a multi storey mansion in LA.

For a president, no, but I did notice Judge Judy 2016 placards at the White House the other night :P

For one, he's a master negotiator: Link
If I ever become an american citizen and he runs for presidency, he's so got my vote.

Problem with that video is he is using money and charity to get sympathy with the viewer, and try to shame Obama into giving out his information.


So Yosup, fancy telling us all your life history including personal and confidential information? Unfortunately I don't have $5m.

Oh god, that was a horrible horrible thing he did.

He was essentially trying to blackmail the president into either:

1.) Looking like he has something to hide and that he hates charities/puppies/america; OR
2.) Looking weak and unpresidential; and that 5 million dollars can get the president of the United States to do whatever you say.

He's no master negotiator, but he may be a master troll (complete with the hair Link).

running a Nation is a lot different from running a Business. just because someone can run a successful business does not make him or her a good President.

and...do pardon me, but, just because someone is soft, doesn't necessarily make him or her weak.

i think a good President is someone who has courage, tenacity and vision.

I think one of the better presidents we've had since I've been alive has been ol' Bill Clinton. Sure, he was getting some side-action with Miss Lewisnky, but I'd sooner trust an adulterer who does his job right than a White-Knight Crusader of Justice who couldn't say good morning without lying twice.

Sure, Bill lied about not having sex with her, but think about it for a moment. If he had told the truth, he'd have been crucified by his opponents. If he hid it, there's a chance it could stop being a big issue. He took a gamble, and lost, but the fact remains that either way he could have gone would have gutted him in some way sooner or later.

Also, some of the best presidents in U.S. history have gotten a little extra-marital action, John Kennedy included. Marilyn Monroe was a hottie (And that's coming from a rainbow-y fluffball like me), who could blame JFK for wanting some?

Seems nowadays, politicians in any nation are too caught up in trying to stonewall and neuter the opposing party rather than work towards any common good for the people they serve.
