    Gotta remember those quotation marks for article headlines, I can be terribly forgetful...

    The money invested would had impacted the businesses that used the money therefore employees of those would had benefited anyway.

    I think you meant if he did nothing he would not have ruined lots of peoples' jobs.

    He would still have created jobs. After-all he's got to hire someone to raise his kids.

    I'll stick with real facts and not conceptual unrealistic ones.

    The candidate you're defending here is on record denying that climate change is real. Has said in the past that vaccines are correlated to autism. At one point he was alleging that Ted Cruz's father might've killed JFK.

    You sure you want to stick to real facts and not conceptually unrealistic ones? It seems like Trump, and and more broadly Republicans, prefer the latter.

    It's much better than the alternative.

    Specifically regarding what policies is it better than the alternative?

    This is the absolute worst time for highly advanced intelligent life from space to pay us a visit.

    I think WW2 might've been a slightly worse time to be fair.

    I've had many policy discussions on this forum before the election, when it mattered. Now it is just sour grapes.

    so discussing about policies is only relevant when scamming people to vote, at least it matches the rethoric.
    Sticking to the facts much? Or to unrealistic conceptual ones:
    - deport 11 million
    - build a wall and have Mexico pay for it
    - mess up the global economy and trade agreements that will backfire US economy
    - make america great again...what is this? and how is done?
    - eliminate health insurance for people already enrolled and depending on it?

    Can you please be more specific on why Trump is a better choice, what is it that you find so great regarding actual policies that his government will do?

    I'm really curious to understand why people really support him.

    I do! I know for a fact, she would have used the office for personal gain without regard to the country just like the past. You can't say that about him, he has never held a government position.

    When someone is known for stiffing contractors, it's ridiculous to claim they created tens of thousands of jobs. He destroyed jobs and livelihoods. His biggest recent success outside of the election was in entertainment (The Apprentice). I suspect the guy genuinely enjoyed The Apprentice, but really the tens of thousands of jobs figure is nonsense.

    So you are saying he has not created 10's of thousands of jobs?

    No way Trump uses his office for personal gain. I have it on excellent authority* that he's a Christian and Christians would never do such a thing.


    *The same people who told me Obama was a Muslim are now telling me Trump is a Christian.

    He hasn't really. Jobs are incidental. Stiffing contractors takes away some jobs. Poorly managed businesses occupy real estate that could be used by better companies. I suspect the net result of his actions on the employment market was in fact negative.

    He doesn't become a different person by moving from the private to the public sector. Ultimately he could behave in a radically different manner, but it's unlikely. He has at least walked back some of the crazy talk. That counts as an improvement.
