Donald Trump Promises To Beat China All The Time

For a generation, the idea of Donald Trump running for President has been a joke. Trump keeps on flirting with running for President, but then backs out.

Not today, though. Today, Donald Trump has finally gone ahead and committed to actually running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016. Trump gave specific reasons for us to vote for him, too. Among these reasons was that, “I beat China all the time. All the time.

Trump also explained that he wants to lead the United States federal government because “We have people who are stupid.”

“I’m the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far,” Trump told the audience for announcement speech. In the list of comparative losers who have run for President before him, Trump apparent includes George Washington, who won the Revolutionary War.

So it looks like Trump for President is a joke after all. The only question is whether Donald Trump is in on the joke.

    Lol…this President we have now is a joke! A clown in the WH!! Trump is a successful business man and built businesses..what did Obama build? You liberals are really stupid…

  2. Bruce says:

    Trump for president – frightening example of poor self awareness.

    1. frank says:

      After electing a total incompetent in the WH..anything is better. Business owner and successful. What YOUR President has done in his life?

    They were saying the same about Reagan. Turned out to be pretty a good deal. After this Obama’s disaster…i mean, can’t go worse than this! With Obi we scraped the bottom of the barrel…

    No Frank, Reagan was the beginning of the end of America as we knew it. Now it’s a corporate controlled oligarchy. i agree that Obama is a fraud, but that’s because all presidents since JFK get the message now – do what you’re told or else. That’s why he’s so gung-ho on the whole TPP thing that would be a disaster for the entire world. Politics will not save us from our fate because our environment is being destroyed and we can’t live without food and water.

    1. frank says:

      Agreed, that’s why someone needs to get back to the Constitutional Republic and rebuild what we have fucked up. All guilty, republicans and democrats. Think it’s too late now..cycles of history, Polybius.

    It’s pretty obvious to a real thinker that Trump’s context is referring to personal wealth created when he stated he is the most successful person to run for President of the United States. Context matters, even if the person writing the above article is far too dense to realize it. Or is just slimy….

    I don’t think he was comparing his accomplishments in economic and business dealings with being a general of an army. Clearly that was not his goal. I guess you could also claim George Washington was pretty lousy at building hotels and casinos, compared to Trump, so maybe he was the least successful President, with that as the criteria. Trump was clearly talking about his wealth, and even a child knows this.

    You can absolutely hate Trump’s egotistical bluster, or love his ability to overcome diversity, but he is clearly correct in that his financial accomplishments are significant and impressive. I’m not claiming that this alone makes him the best person to be chief executive, but as our current example shows, lack of real useful life experiences and executive responsibility (community organizer? yeah sure) are real hindrences to being an effectual chief executive. I have rarely seen a less effective President in my lifetime, given the opportunities he was handed by the press and the populace.

    George Washington was estimated to be the most wealthy President, with I think a modern wealth equivalent roughly estimated to be half a bill to a billion dollars net worth. It’s rather difficult to rate his property holdings to modern equivalents. Even Tommy Jefferson was worth hundreds of millions in today’s equivalents.

    But Trump is worth close to 9 Billion dollars, when popular estimates guessed at about 4 Billion. Maybe he’s bluffing a bit, but even 4 or 5 billion is 5 to 10 times what George Washington was worth. I’d say his boast is generally accurate.

    One thing I will predict: Elect Trump as President, and the next four years will be interesting. And different. It probably won’t be good for unions, the Acorn-types, and academic sucker-fish, but when what you’ve been doing clearly does not yield results, it could be worth gambling, as Monty Python once said, “…and now for something completely different….”

      DogFace, I don’t think you understand the implications of what you’re saying about Trump’s perceptions about power and money. It seems that Donald thinks that money power trumps everything else. Financial success is all that matters to him.

      1. thedogfacedboy says:

        So that belief is what makes him ‘à joke’?

    2. J Clifford says:

      What I’m wondering, given that Donald Trump hired actors to make his crowd of supporters appear larger….

      … is whether Trump intends to use his wealth to buy votes as well.

      1. Jim Cook says:

        Well, that would just be more “success,” wouldn’t it?

      2. frank says:

        Well..since democrats have been using welfare and amnesty to get theirs…i don’t see why not. Fight fire with fire.

    Got interrupted while typing. Third paragraph should have read “overcome adversity”.
    Sorry.

  7. thedogfacedboy says:

    And I also forgot to list John F. Kennedy first, over George W.

    Plus, he got to bang M. Monroe, and that’s priceless!

  8. thedogfacedboy says:

    Of course he’ll use his wealth to buy votes, are you kidding?
    It’s not any worse than handing out Obama-phones at over 2 billion dollars, to buy poor people’s votes. Your accusations of paying event attendees looks rather shaky. It’s obvious Trump generates plenty of interest on his own.

    One can make their own determination of what constitutes success. A country of people infatuated with the talents of the Kardashians and rapper bling might show a lot of intersection with Trumps’s beliefs.
