Donald Trump is a human thermometer sent by his master's to test the temperature of ignorance in America so the next administration and congress know how difficult it would be to get support for a religious based(Islam) law even though it violates the constitution. You can't decide what rights a person has based on religion. If it ever happened, precedent setting cases like that make it easier to make more laws like it until we all accept the beast religion of solomon II. We all got the Mark of the beast with our ss# and microchipping isn't necessary because we have smart phones. Trump is a reality tv star not worth as much as everyone thinks. P

What in the name of all that is holy, are you talking about?

Please show your work where the old islamic law issue is concerned... In fact, show your work for all of what you just said, because I have been watching very closely, and the last time I checked a billionaire was still a billionaire, so not only do I fail to see your thermometer reference panning out, but I fail entirely to see how a filthy rich tycoon is any less of a filthy rich tycoon, if he has only two billions as opposed to the vast billions he is claimed to be worth.

Again...please show your work.

I actually believe your OP i think Trump could very well win the nomination in a landslide.

Its just that for the rest of the world the idea of Trump becoming president is as funny as Bush becoming president. Twice.

I would never suggest that.

I just want to see the reasoning, logic, and evidence which lead you to these conclusions.

Have you had a chance to audit him? Have access to his banking information? Powerful people don't run for president, they choose the president. Donald Trump is tv rich, hes no Warren Buffett or Carlos Slim he is successful but who knows what he had to do to get there. He probably had to go through some soditmitic ritual to get and stay where he is. He tanked his campaign by letting electability assassin Sarah Palin ramble nonsensically for so long. That's a good sign he never wanted to be President. And the ignorance thermometer burst due to intolerance becoming mainstream and fashionable. Hate is chic right now.

We know what he did to get to where he is. He kicked old ladies out of apartment complexes so that he could build hotels and casinos and what have you. He did dodgy property deals, bought and sold lives just like every other tycoon in history, and failed to pay his bottom rung workers worth a crap.

That is not rocket science. What I am asking you, is if you can show me how your whole line of reasoning operates. How you got from Islamic law, to Trump being poorer than he admits (HAHAHAHAHAHA) and how the two things are linked, in detail, from the beginning of your investigation and observation, to the current time,

Guys....

Do you think any Americans realise that the rest of the world is laughing at them right now for seriously considering Trump as a presidential candidate.


So I have a question;

It’s not directed at you specifically; as I have heard many other people make similar comments about similar events in the past.

Where does this need come from for individuals outside the USA to point out how the “Rest Of The World” feels about the USA over a given topic?

In this case we have you (and your friends at work apparently) representing the “Rest Of The World” making it known that the “Rest Of The World” is laughing at the USA because one of our citizens is running for president and has about 30% support from his political party base.

Let’s for the sake of argument just assume that you (and your friends at work) really do represent the “Rest Of The World” (this is a highly arrogant belief, but we can go with it for the sake of the conversation). Why do you (ie the “Rest Of the World”) have the urge to make your highly subjective and berating opinion known on such an unimportant subject (ie one of many candidates running for present in country that is not the country you live in.)

For example most Americans wouldn’t give a second though about who “might” be running for high political office in the UK. Who is “running” for office in your country doesn’t affect us in the least. Who finally becomes elected might be important to the US; and even than you won’t find many Americans who go out of our way to tell you how smart or dumb you are for electing that person.

To be clear I am not suggesting this is a UK thing; but more of a human nature thing. I Live in New York and I visit the San Francisco a lot; and I find some people in San Francisco have the same hang-up for New York that the “Rest Of The World” seems to have for the USA. It seems like every conversation I have with someone from San Francisco always evolves into a comparison between San Francisco and New York and the passion in which San Franciscan people come to the opinion that their (insert subject here) is better than in New York leads me to believe they spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about New York.

Now to be clearer New Yorkers think we are the best at everything … it’s what we do. But it ‘seems to me’ that we don’t single anyone out to be better than. We don’t think we’re better than San Francisco, or LA or Miami … we’re just better. Our arrogance is more internally driven, we are better just because we are; not because someone else sucks at something or needs to be laughed at… we truthfully don’t send that much time thinking about what other people are doing enough to find what they are doing worth laughing at.

So again to get back to the original question why is the “Rest Of The World” overly concerned with who might be running for president in the US that they spend an inordinate amount of time at work laughing with their friends about it?

I suspect the key is N.Y.. I believe Hillary was going to lose to Rudy in N.Y. and that's the reason behind Hillary's being dumped for Obama...just speculation on my part.

Likewise today, N.Y.-uncovered by the major media- is key. Apparently, Trump is VERY popular in NYC and is given even more credit for NY's 'recovery' than Rudy! As upstate is, traditionally, Republican carrying NY is what? 47 (?) electoral college votes.

Thar's a game changer....if, in fact, true.



She will do the same as Al Gore did when he ran. His State that he was Senator for refused to carry him and voted for Bush.
Clinton is a fake New York transplant who only went there to use the State as a stepping stone on her quest for power. New Yorkers know this and regular folks like the ones that attend baseball games and go out to vote there sure do enjoy booing her.

Wasn't Trump in a secret homosexual relationship with Bruce Jenner?

Too much territorial pissing in this conversation.

How about it resorts back to civilised ATS style discussion?

Lets talk Trump.

What I see, from my perspective over here is someone who is big on hyperbole, big on talk and very little on substance.

So lets take the campaign ad on TV



"The politicians can call it something else, but Donald Trump calls it radical islamic terrorism"


I think most people would identify it as radical islamic terrorism. - So whats the insinuation here? Is it that people who don't believe all muslims should be tarred with the same brush are somehow wrong? Whats he on about?



Thats why he's calling for a temporary shut down of muslims entering the United States until we can figure out whats going on


That would be radical islamic terrorism, wouldn't it? Doesn't he know whats going on already? Anyone with a spare hour and access to the net can get up to speed on the issue. So whats he trying to figure out exactly? What does that mean? Do you want to elect a president who discriminates entry into a country solely on religious grounds? How is that going to work? Who makes the decisions? - again - questions. No answers.



He'll quickly cut the head of ISIS and take their oil


Because its all about oil, right? Or is it? He doesn't know "whats going on" remember? And how is he going to cut the head off ISIS exactly? Another war? Boots on the ground? More dead servicemen and women? Millions of dollars in death tech used? How did that work out in Afghanistan? Or Iraq? Hasn't the US been bombing ISIS as part of a coalition for over a year now? Why isn't that working? Isn't "ISIS oil" Syrian or Iraqi Oil? Don't those sovereign nations get a say in things?



And he'll stop illegal immigration by buidling a wall on our southern border that mexico will pay for


How? With what? How are Mexico going to pay for it? What happens if they don't? Who's going to built it?



We will make America great again


So its not great already? All of you guys over there who tell us its the best country in the world are lying? Why isn't it great? How is he going to do it? Who's going to pay for it? Does that mean new jobs, new infrastructure, new investment or simply more war, more military industrial complex, more money for the 1%? whats his economic policy, growth plan and how are you actually going to be better off and "great" once more?

I'm seeing rhetoric. Where are the answers?

How is this any different from Obama's promised change commercials? (which Trump supporters say hasn't happened/things have got worse) Why should you believe its going to be any different? Its just sounds like a sales patter to me, but is there actually going to be any real difference?

Don't you want some substance? Shouldn't your presidential candidates be respectful to others, and therefore respected? What is the measure of the average american? Do you want/enjoy being perceived as ignorant loudmouthed bullies (which, whether Trump supporters like it or not does actually appear to be a shared perception of the man worldwide) or as a progressive, informed diplomatic nation?

Lots and lots of questions. How about we discuss, without the BS, some answers?

Well, not to knock anyone or anything, but the simple fact is that the rest of the world contains people whose intellect and awareness of international affairs is such, that they understand that what happens on one side of the planet, affects what happens on the other.

We pay attention, because it is worth doing. It prepares us for the worst, which is just as well from the looks of things. What you said about most folks in the US not giving a fig about what happens outside it...I should not really need to tell you how that sounds, should I? What it sounds like, just so we are absolutely clear, is a bloody good reason to keep a close eye on matters in the US. For all that our members here on ATS who happen to be from the States, are rather a worldly bunch, we KNOW how little many in the States consider the plight of other nations and peoples.

That is why it is concerning that you have a xenophobic lackwit about to potentially take power there. It does not take much for casual disregard to become cold dispassion, and that is a very dangerous mix, a dispassionate populous only interested in their own lives, and a leader who enjoys manipulating and destroying people. Its a cluster bang waiting to happen.

I think you should look up Annabel Hill first.

He does not kick old ladies into the street. You might be referring to the woman who wanted to hold out for more money in Atlantic City but he did not kick her out. She fought imminent domain, won, and years later sold it for a fraction of what it was worth. If anything she should have read his book and made a better deal.

Clueless. First of all, while it is true that the particular case you are talking about did not go his way, he has a history of using EMINENT domain loopholes to remove people from their property, and by his own admission LOVES that such a thing is possible.

He is nothing short of a gangster with a paper gun, that fires pure misery. Do not insult my intelligence, and give such poor account of your own, as to attempt to defend his scheme, just because it failed in the scenario you are referring to, as did his grand hotel complex, which shut down because of lack of trade eventually.
