What are his plans for supreme court nominees?

The biggest problem we have is lobbyists own our representatives.

Were is trump on getting money out of politics?

He’s just to much of an egomaniac to do this country any good.

Washington DC is fundamental to centralized profiteering. Trump wants to build his hotels all over the world. Wall Street banks want to finance anyone as long as there is no risk and high profit for them. Being President removes the risk. But who is actually in control? How deep is the ocean.

Donald Trump is just starting to talk about these issues to get votes. In fact, a significant percentage of his company’s hotels and major real estate properties are located abroad. Trump has imported clothing from China and Mexico produced for his brand, he is part of the problem.

Bernie Sanders Platform on Income Inequality – Demanding that the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share in taxes. As president, Sen. Sanders will stop corporations from shifting their profits and jobs overseas to avoid paying U.S. income taxes. He will create a progressive estate tax on the top 0.3 percent of Americans who inherit more than $3.5 million. He will also enact a tax on Wall Street speculators who caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs, homes, and life savings.

Reversing trade policies like NAFTA, CAFTA, and PNTR with China that have driven down wages and caused the loss of millions of jobs. If corporate America wants us to buy their products they need to manufacture those products in this country, not in China or other low-wage countries.

Iran is not the problem. Isis is not the problem. Russia is not the problem. Islam is not the problem.

WE, each and every one of us, ARE the PROBLEM. We are failing to adapt where adaptation is needed. We are rigid where fluidity is needed. We are callous, where sensitivity is needed. We are greedy, where generosity is needed. We are soft, when we should be tough. We are filled with ego, when we should be humble and thankful. We live in the mind and not in the body. We live in the past and future, and not in the present. WE expect more than we give, and take more than we need.

At every turn we have replaced the broad understanding of the heart with the narrow, precise understanding of the mind. We have replaced the radiant heat of the village bonfire, available to all, with the precision laser of technology, wielded by one.

There is no doom and gloom, though. At any moment, in this moment, each and every one of us can bring ourselves to the present, and make the choice to let go of our past grievances.

He may even make them fly the Trump plane, at full fare!
Just an opinion of mine.

Producers versus the Parasites.

Those who build versus those who consume what is built.

Wouldn’t more immigration and cheaper inputs make both of those things cheaper? Wouldn’t that make the construction industry more profitable? Granted, Trump’s competitors would benefit from cheaper inputs just as much as he would. However, that is not reason for him to oppose them, at least not necessarily.

For now his sources of support are from know nothing tea party types and to get elected he must get over his egotistical hubris!He has done an apparently superb job of raising his children
He know intuitively market makers make money but do not create jobs but construction does
The ball is in his court ;I hope he does not “double dribble”
