This man is unstoppable!!!
Haha a ridiculous statement but hilarious and will win him points among the republican voters.
Meh, Trump is going to Trump. Though you do get some inconsistent stuff from O:
"For example, President Obama gave a speech at a mosque in the Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday. While standing in front of a glass wall where the word “Allah” was written 99 times in Arabic calligraphy, the President took a stab at Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump by stating there was “inexcusable anti-Islamic rhetoric in the political sphere.” The White House staff were even gifted Qurans at the event (picture below):
What makes this entire event a slap in the face to Christians is that while giving a speech at Georgetown University in 2012 the White House told the Catholic school to cover up all religious signs and symbols, including the small letters IHS displayed inside the triangular pediment directly behind and above where the President would stand since the 3 letters signify the name of Jesus Christ (pictured top left)."
Though, it could be a political smear piece that doesn't reflect the entirety of his speaking engagements. The way the article is written strongly suggests it, actually. Anyone know if Georgetown was an isolated incident of covering up Christian symbols, or is it common for O? Has he ever covered up Muslim symbols for a speech before?
It's occurred to me after seeing this picture that I can't think of a single successful Trump product or business apart from The Apprentice.
Lol. A presidential candidate, and a world famous troll. He's a true renaissance man.
He failed his way to a cool few billion, and two primary wins. More than any of the other shrubs in the republican field can say.
And Thomas Edison failed what like 300 times to make a working, George Washington lost pretty much every battle besides 3 or 4, Lincoln lost his first Senatorial bid, US Grant also lost many more battles than he won, FDR's new deal policies all failed in lifting us out of the depression, Steve jobs got fired from his own company, etc. Pretty much every American Hero failed his entire life until they got lucky.
Also the vast majority of these Trump "failures" on your list are just companies Trump sold his name to for marketing rights. An example of something that were actually bad decisions he made himself would be his Atlantic City casino and the airline.
I don't see how the bankruptcies matter. Chrysler and GM went bankrupt just 7 years ago and they are making record profits today. Sometimes a company needs to go through a bankruptcy to turn its around.
Seems a little on edge. Wonder if he might know he's going to lose SC today...
Bahahaahahahaha. That's classic
And yet he's worth $4.5B.
Yeah, this is one of those things that seems like just a smear job to me. I mean, it might not be - Oedad's post strongly suggests it is though - but saying that Trump is a failure because a few products associated with his name have failed, or because he has declared bankruptcy or divorced, really doesn't indicate much as to how successful he really is.
Bankruptcy can be a powerful financial tool if used right, and some of the most successful business people in the world have declared strategically declared bankruptcy to the great benefit of their businesses. You can do a list like this, of relatively unsuccessful/failed products, for companies like Google and Apple and Nintendo - and would you consider them failures? Divorces? Many of the most successful people of the past century have been divorced multiple times.
Trump is a figure that is being misrepresented by his supporters and detractors. That Trump meme that you buy into and spread on your facebook page? Yeah, it's probably BS meant to mislead and spread a disingenuous positive/negative narrative about the guy.
Trump was handed a lot of capital, and other factors ($1 million my ass) and turned it into an empire, through a lot of ups and downs. He's certainly not a failure, though certainly not as self-made as he would like us to think. Seems odd to go after his failures.
The mosque dig at Obama- how sleazy. But people like the sleaze.
Trump is amazing in many way. He really knows how to play right wingers. I normally expect pretty much anything from right wingers, but even in my wildest dreams I never thought they would embrace a guy like Trump who has said so many things about how he is a democrat, support abortion, thinks hillary and pelosi are great, wanted bush impeached. Sometimes I think he sat down with some friends and made a bet.....I can make this people follow me. And they like come on Donald, you are a liberal.....no way. Ok lets have a bet.
Lol I love the way Trump ends his tweets.
"Not a nice person!"
"Very sad that he did not go!"
"He holds up the Bible but in fact is a true lowlife pol!"
"Interesting how President Obama so haltingly said I "would never be president" - This from perhaps the worst president in U.S. history!"
Some people don't seem to understand the concept that money creates more money. Most people don't have the opportunity to play with the kind of sums that Trump inherited. If you had given Trump's money to a random person, as long as they had made semi-decent investments, they would be as rich if not richer than Trump right now.
I'll say it plays into his message well. Trump is a GOP candidate using identity politics.
Money doesn't of necessity create more money. Plenty of people lose fortunes. He's done quite well, being a billionaire and all.
Trump may be the greatest troll in American history.
He's worth over 10.
