If Trump Becomes President?

Let's just say Donald Trump becomes POTUS. Given the ways our government works and the things he says he intends to do, what do you think will happen when he tries?

I always find this line of thought silly and a little high school like. after all, what country are you worried about impressing or disappointing?

maybe we should just let other nations assign us a president that they will trust and cooperate with. that way we can ensure this.

We'll get plenty of respect. Saudi Arabia will respect us enough to hand over a few billion in payment for our military protection. China will respect us enough to stop ****ing with their currency. Mexico will respect us enough to pay for the Trump Wall.

We have been the butt of the world's jokes for the past SEVEN YEARS. That ENDS when President Elect Trump takes the oath of office.
The man's bank account can be measured in the millions and 80% of the stuff with his name on it he doesn't own (and much of the rest is mired in legal troubles). Of that $8B, $3B is just a number he pulled out of his ass and he didn't build his company, he inherited it from his dad, ran it into the ground and got bailed out by an arab prince.

Yet his gross worth it's estimated between $250 and $300M (depending on how you count) and he values his name at $3B so you can knock that off his net worth. All of this is public knowledge.

It seems likely this is but one of many reasons...we simple Americans will not be allowed to know until it no longer matters though.

You understand the difference between gross and net, yes? Obviously not, I ask for effect.

Change what argument? I was arguing about gross from the gitgo, not my fault you can't read.

His debt is a very small percentage of value, and at very low interest rates. As of this date, Mr. Trump's net worth is in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS."

You lose again.
Lets see actual numbers as opposed to a claim. I also want to see those numbers segregated between assets owned by Trump personally (homes, cars, furniture, art, stocks, bank accounts, etc.) and assets owned by his companies. You won't because you know his net worth sure as hell isn't $10B.

No, you didn't. I already pointed out the flaw in your argument, try to keep up.

No, you didn't post numbers. You posted a link to a Trump Campaign press release that made a claim of $10B. I want actual numbers and I want those numbers to reflect Donald's assets, not his family's or his company's. If you can't provide numbers or can but have to lump other people's money in to get the number up to what you claim, you lose.

I'll wait.

Most ignoramuses believe they don't need any education. You've proven that you haven't had any.



Sweeping the grounds as a janitor does not qualify as taking college courses.

Actually, those numbers represent your IQ.

I mean, you're STILL DUMBASS ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR RINOBIO, even though he's done.

I'd call you an idiot, but at this point I think I may have to 'splain the meaning of the word to you.
You can either reign in your personality and calm down the ignorant insults...or you can continue on this course and allow ME to calm you.
Thanks from Aufgeblassen

Hold the others to the same standard. So far you haven't.

And as far as allowing YOU to calm me down, that would require you to be about ten times my size and in front of me, preferably holding a weapon. As far as this forum goes, all you'll succeed in doing is once again raping the First Amendment. Making threats against a poster merely because you disagree with him is hardly a "calming" gesture. It's just one of childish behavior, you threatening to take your ball and go home.

I'm not impressed, and this place isn't worth me changing my views and bending over just because some child is whining about getting a mental boo boo.

Here's an Idea....get yourself ready to go play elsewhere. If you are to childish to accept the Moderation here then feel free to go cry somewhere about how unfair and mean it is......nobody here will miss you or know of your whining, and the constant juvenile insults might go over better in your new cubicle.
