    Donald Trump's "Successful" Companies have filed for bankruptcy several times, and he has been divorced 3 times, and has kids from two different women. If he can't take care of his personal finances, and his own family, how can he take care of America ?
    If the Trump presidential campaign FAILS, it won't be the Donald's first FAIL:



    Trump ShuttleIn 1989 the Eastern Air Shuttle was reborn as the Trump Shuttle, complete with a large “T” on the tails of the planes and—no joke—”gold lavatory fixtures.” The goal was to create a top-notch luxury flight service—they even paired with a company that rented laptops, which was cutting edge at the time—but the operation was hemorrhaging cash within weeks and was completely out of business by 1992.

    Trump: The Game
    The original catchphrase for the Monopoly-like Trump board gameintroduced in 1989 was the Trumpism “It’s not whether you win or lose, but whether you win!” Sales were underwhelming, to put it mildly. But after Trump became a cultural phenomenon in the reality TV show “The Apprentice,” the game was back on the market featuring a new expression: “You’re fired!”

    Trump Magazine
    “The Trump Brand evokes elegance and TRUMP Magazine will reflect the passions of its affluent readership by tapping into a rich cultural tapestry,” explained a 2007 press release introducing Trump Magazine. A year and a half later, the quarterly periodical, billed as a “highly anticipated ‘must read’ among VIPs and influencers,” had ceased publication.


    GoTrump.com
    Billed as his “biggest venture to date in the $80 billion online travel industry,” Donald Trump introduced this travel search engine powered by Travelocity in 2006. The site was supposed to host “Trump Picks” and “Trump Deals,” and it was accompanied by the introduction of The Donald’s “first-ever email address” (MrTrump@GoTrump.com) which he would be using to “offer travel tips and advice.” The site was shut down a year later.

    Trump Casinos
    The Atlantic City casino Trump Plaza, which was built in the 1980s at a cost of $210 million, was sold off at the “fire sale price” of $20 million in 2013, not long before several casinos shut down in the fading gambling destination. Trump insists that he cashed out the vast majority of his interests in the Trump Plaza and nearby Trump Taj Mahal long before Atlantic City property values tanked, but earlier this year he reached an agreement to keep his name on them.

    Trump Mortgage
    “Donald Trump is putting the suit and tie back in the mortgage business,” a 2006 press release explained of his brand new venture, Trump Mortgage. Whatever that means. Less than two years later, the suit and tie were back in the closet, or perhaps up for sale at the consignment store, so to speak, as Trump Mortgage closed up shop. Trump speedily downplayed the ventureas well, saying, “The mortgage business is not a business I particularly liked or wanted to be part of in a very big way.”

    Trump Steaks
    AdAge described Trump Steaks, featured on the June 2007 cover of the Sharper Image catalogue, as like “a ‘Saturday Night Live’ spoof, but it’s not.”

    Trump Vodka
    Donald Trump made no secret of the fact that he doesn’t drink. Nonetheless, a decade ago he rolled out Trump Vodka and promised it would be “a major player in the vodka arena” because “it’s a superb product and it’s beautifully packaged,” and “there’s nobody who markets better in the luxury category than Donald Trump.” This is one “major player” that disappeared from the marketplace several years ago.

    Should have made this thread before he unveiled his 11 figure net worth....

    Don't try to bash our 45th President before he even gets sworn in

    If he fails? That's the fake story robin. There is 0.0 chance this dude becomes president. Is there less than 0.0?

    I would like to see all politicians mocked and not with one ideology. They are all fake. Hillary taking $150K per speech is no saint. Neither was George W or Reagan....but at least they were mocked. I don't see same scrutiny on our first black president. Unless we see that, it tells me that inherently press believes in holding him to a lower standard. They are the racist ones.

    I fail to see how a guy who can successfully navigate our ridiculous financial system and come out on top every time would be bad for our country.

    If he doesn't win here, maybe he should run for president of Greece, he'd bring them out of bankruptcy in the black.

    Dawg...I am not white, and the reason i am against affirmative action is that when you succeed, people will always think that affirmative action got you there. I want everyone to be treated equally regardless of color...in words of MLK:grad:

    No fan of Trump but if your going to be a big time business man your going to have your failures along with your success.

    People should calm down a little with Trump he has no chance of being President and won't even be the Republican candidate. He reminds me of Ross Perot. Maybe he goes independent and tries to steal votes from the two others but I highly doubt that. He is enjoying the attention and will ride it out of a couple of months and drop out is what I expect. And no I don't give a shit about any polls in July.

    I don't watch TV except for NFL or Games of Throne, or old episodes of Seinfeld....perhaps election night coverage. I don't even listen to talk radio.
