    Really? So when he said:

    Trump said, “Last quarter, it was just announced, our gross domestic product – a sign of strength, right? But not for us. It was below zero. Who ever heard of this? It’s never below zero.”

    It's never below zero? Except in the 1st quarter of 2014, 1st quarter of 2011, first and second quarter of 2009, in 2008 it happened in the first, third and fourth quater, in 2001 in the first and third quarter, 1st quarter 1991, fourth quarter 1990. It even happened in four quarters under Ronald Reagan.

    So to say it is never below zero is nonsense, that just is untrue.

    He also said, he also said that there are no jobs (which is untrue, there are 5.4 million jobs to be had). You can find the fact checkers pages, they just all find the same thing.

    Isis has not built a hotel. Mexicans aren't all rapists and criminals.

    He said, we owe China about 1.3 trillion and Japan even more than that. Which is incorrect, the US owes Japan less than it owes the Chinese.

    He cannot tax 35% on Mexican car parts, the president has no tax powers, that is congress.
    You're stuck on the word "never," he wasn't being literal... he was purposely overstating in order to magnify the economic problem he was trying to highlight.

    In fact, I think that's where you're tripped up, generally. He's a crass, upper class New Yorker.... many of them talk that way. "There are no jobs" means there aren't many jobs. "We owe China the world" means we owe China a lot of money.

    He's clearly not an artful speaker or a politician... but I happen to like that. I've had enough wordsmiths, I would like to see someone in office who can push, drive the bus, and get things accomplished. Trump, for what he lacks in diplomacy and artful language, makes up for it by being effective.

    he'll do better among northern and mid western Republicans, i'd imagine.... though I doubt he'll do very well at all.

    Well.....Rick Perry inexplicably defeated Kinky Friedman, so Texas elections are tough to predict.

    Voting for Trump would get rid of the puppets and acknowledge the puppet master. If we are going to elect someone from the 1% at least find a good looking one such as JFK. I still think a token women is still needed before this county goes down the drain. If it comes down to Trump and Hilary My vote will be a write in. GUILLOTINE

    ... if you call getting less than 20% of the Republican vote "doing very well". If you don't, which I do not, then you will conclude that he won't do well at all.

    Instead, he cheapens an already cheap brand by virtue of being one of the biggest buffoons in the race. He is not a serious candidate; just an attention whore.

    Meh....it's early and no one in the GOP is getting 20% of the vote.

    Can't disagree with any of this.
    I predict DT will leave the race as soon as he has to reveal how much he's really worth.
    He's a rich guy, but he isn't worth his claimed $9 billion.

    I have never been likely to vote for Trump.

    And I never will vote for Trump.
