    Is it a seminar on declaring a project bankrupt to avoid paying the subs?

    ...i think he will probably talk about his friend sam levit of levit homes and how much he loved his company and he will probably mention that home ownership is at its lowest level in 51 years and that communities are crumbling, even going bankrupt because home ownership helps to keep communities strong.

    I'm sure this is what his political team is begging him to say, but you know he's going off message again.

    He's a gaffe machine.

    I can't stand Trump, but the guy just doesn't know how to let the campaign breathe.... Hillary is stung by more email crap and Trump just can't stand back for a day to let it percolate to the top of the news cycles...

    He ain't gonna win this thing. As we discussed yesterday, Hillary is gonna have to get pole-axed by Wikileaks.

    ...you dont understand trump and maybe what winners are made out of as well. as a child trumps church pastor was norman vincent peale. when a person is schooled in pma they never quit, every breath is dedicated to reaching the goal. winning takes dedication, the bigger the goal the more you need to be on it. if you dont play it that way, you dont really want to win it. napolean hill wrote about it and some broad added some new age sprinkles to it to sell "the secret" but this is an unusual person that knows how to turn on that kind of drive and keep it going. win lose or draw hes an exception person.

    Trump is into one thing and one thing only: dominance. He can't allow anyone or any statement to overshadow him. He must answer every slight with idiotic rhetoric. This is not a will to win (he's lost hundreds of things, including businesses and lawsuits). This is simple pure ego played out on the biggest stage in the world.

    ...knowing the formula for winning and knowing how to kill your ego are 2 different strengths.

    Also funny that Donald is addressing home builders when he's stiffed so many small business owners and building contractors.

    ...every builder in that room has "stiffed" an incompetent sub contractor. sometimes these complaints of being "stiffed" are an inability to read your contractand know what and how much work youre responsible for. a sub might call something an extra and want to be paid more and the contractor wont pay more.

    You know as much about the real Trump as I do. So I can only go by the lists of lawsuits. Sure seems like he's a douche.

    In addition to more than 3,500 lawsuits (3,500!), the USA Today found more than 200 mechanic’s liens — filed by contractors and employees against Trump, his companies or his properties claiming they were owed money for their work — since the 1980s. The liens range from a $75,000 claim by a Plainview, N.Y., air conditioning and heating company to a $1 million claim from the president of a New York City real estate banking firm. On just one project, Trump’s Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, records released by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission in 1990 show that at least 253 subcontractors weren’t paid in full or on time, including workers who installed walls, chandeliers and plumbing.

    The actions in total paint a portrait of Trump’s sprawling organization frequently failing to pay small businesses and individuals, then sometimes tying them up in court and other negotiations for years. In some cases, the Trump teams financially overpower and outlast much smaller opponents, draining their resources. Some just give up the fight, or settle for less; some have ended up in bankruptcy or out of business altogether.
