A current PRSI thread focuses on another quote from this interview. But a quote that caught my attention concerned the question of tourism in southern Nevada, and how Trump's rhetoric could negatively affect it.
"Do you worry that a trade war would hurt tourism and your business interests here," asked Snyder.
"... what if China said no more visas to go to Las Vegas and stay at Trump Tower," pressed Snyder.

"If China ever did that, and we cut off relationship with China, China would go bust so fast," said Trump.

Who thinks cutting off relations with China over a personal slight is a good foreign policy decision?

:D Who imagines Donald Trump's foreign policy decisions as President would be based on anything not up close and personal to Donald Trump's personal (or his surrogates' business) interests?!

Doesn't have to be a slight, although his reactions to those might be spectacuar (or fatal to the planet).

I can see Trump cozying up to some tinpot dictator upon receipt of a flattering photo of himself and the dictator at some boring international summit, where the tinpot scrawls on the photo "so great to meet you in Paris, let's do lunch in Rio or London sometime."

Donald will meet him at some Trump hotel someplace, pose for photo op and hotel promo, and then deal away the American store (well at least trade some updated fighter planes and rocket launchers for another photo from a grateful admirer). Then he'll come home and brag about having the tinpot's country in his pocket. And he'll have those photos on the wall to prove how great it is to have a business savvy dude in the Oval Office. Someone who really gets how to do foreign affairs.

You know what? Foreign heads of state in TinPotLand are lining up to take this guy to the cleaners. It's not a far leap from being a media whore to becoming a collector of photographic affadavits of undying love from heads of state all over the planet. Trump would just eat that up. And think of the boost to the defense industry.

And how exactly is he planning on making a firewall between Trump as President and the business empire of which he must divest himself before he can take office.

I guess the transition period would be a frenzy of paperwork for his tribe. Getting right with God has nothing on getting right with the US government as its top official.

Trump loves shouting out just how unqualified he is to be POTUS. He's doing us a huge favor. Thank Trust. :)

Normally the Pres. and VP put their holdings in blind trusts. From the interview I watched, tRump's idea of a "blind trust" is to have his kids manage his portfolio.

Which matches his idea of a self benefiting money laundering operation charity. :oops:

It would be impossible for him to put his businesses into a blind trust.

Got an email from our old neighbours in England. They think we've all gone mad here, and can't understand how Trump is even a viable candidate. They're scared to death that he could win. I have no answers for her.
lol the US has gone mad about 70 years ago. Britain's been mad it's entire existence. Trump and Hillary as candidates is a big slap in the face of the population. Hi people, we are going to offer you two horrible candidates and the citizens will think one is better than the other when in fact, they are both terrible choices. Enjoy!

I agree with the headline of the thread; Trump does, indeed, have the best temperament for President, as has been demonstrated by the excellent Republican campaign. The man is an absolute workhorse, and has consistently drawn huge crowds for his rallies. This is in stark contrast to Clinton, who has regularly mustered only drips and drabs to hear her coughing into the microphone on the very few occasions when she has dared to venture out.

As we have seen from the overwhelming video evidence in the past few months, it is likely that Hilary Clinton has Parkinson's disease or dementia, and that it is getting rapidly worse. That would disqualify her from any position of office, let alone the Presidency. One can only hope that she will be well looked after in her dotage.

It's sad news for the Democrats, but there is a silver lining for them: they'll be able to have another stab at it in four years' time.

Yes, because drawing huge crowds is a good indicator for being a world leader. :rolleyes:

You know what's an even bigger crowd? All the people who won't be voting Trump. :D

BTW...great work of fiction in your post. Really wild stuff. If Trump got beat in a debate by someone with dementia, what does that say about Trump? LOL
