The guy is morphing into a clown fast. Just saw excerpts from his monologue yesterday.

Wow. All over the place.

I still wonder what the end game is. He can't think he would have half a chance even if he was more mainstream. So why spend all this time and money? Something tells me there is a scheme within. Not saying it must work but why would be want this crummy job when he has more power as CEO of a company instead of having to beg congress for approval of what he wants.

Money.....not sure how but it is the only thing I can imagine he wants....other than air time.

This one isn't as good a sweet talker though. Even Bush II could win more people than he will.

Supposed to be that this is costing him money so he will be willing to sacrifice this but there has to be more in store, I would think. Unless maybe he wanted to shed his current commitments.

Trump's big weakness is that he thinks the answer to everything is to spend money. If there is a platform that is 180 out with the Republicans Party it is to spend money to solve a problem. He will need to get that money somewhere and to get it he will need to raise taxes.

If he wants to keep running he will need to go third party. He has the money to do so but in the end it will wind up with Trump splitting the vote with perhaps Bush and the Dem will waltz into the White House.

So from my perspective I hope he stays in for the long run.
Donald has a Herman Cain chance of getting the nomination, so we should all just "enjoy the ride" while it lasts. We may never see this again in our lifetime.

The guy is some kind of attention whore all right. Running for Pres-dent has become a money maker. Looking at the good ol' boy who can now be seen promoting reverse mortgages.



Huckabee got a second career from it.

Donald Trump causing a new headache for NBC - Jun. 26, 2015

Quote:
A day after Trump vowed to sue Univision for backing out of the Miss USA Pageant, NBCUniversal is reviewing its contractual obligations with Trump.
Sounds like a game to get them, city, etc to break contract that I have a hunch might not be profitable or more lucrative for him to have them break.
