COULD TRUMP WIN?

Advertisement

rtx1gr29-1

Donald Trump threw his hat in the ring earlier this morning. He isn’t playing around this time, he’s serious as heck about becoming our next president of the USA.

We watched his announcement, he minced nary a word…he’s not politically correct in the least and doesn’t care what the republican says about it. One thing is for sure, the talking heads in the msm are laughing him off, as well as ignoring him. You can also be sure the political bigwigs have their panties in a wad behind the scenes.

To cut to the chase, you can read and watch this report:

New York real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald Trump on Tuesday declared himself a candidate for the Republican nomination for president, launching his against-the-odds campaign after teasing one for years.

“I am officially running for president of the United States,” he said from inside his signature Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan. “We are going to make our country great again.”

In a strong pro-business, pro-military speech, the unabashed Trump vowed to stop the Islamic State, keep Iran from building a nuclear weapon, repeal ObamaCare, build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, repeal President Obama’s executive orders on immigration and spend more on infrastructure.

“Nobody could be tougher on ISIS than Donald Trump,” he said in a roughly 45-minute speech, peppered with occasional, off-the-cuff remarks.

“I’m really rich,” Trump said while waving a financial statement that showed his net worth at nearly $9 billion. “And that’s not bragging. That’s the kind of mindset you need.”

Though he faces an uphill challenge in trying to win the GOP nomination, the 69-year-old Trump adds an undeniable element of surprise to the race.

He joins the field of 11 other GOP candidates, with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker expected to enter the race in mid-July and several other hopefuls still considering. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced his bid a day earlier.

And he could be an aggressive — and interesting — player on the primary debate stage, should he stay among the top-10 candidates in the polls.

On Tuesday, Trump unapologetically criticized candidates, politicians and others.

“Politicians are all talk and no action,” said the first-time candidate. “We have losers. We have people who are morally corrupt. We have people who are taking the country down the drain.”

Trump questioned Obama’s leadership, criticized Secretary of State John Kerry’s negotiating skills in trying to keep Iran from producing a nuclear weapon and Bush for supporting national education standards known as Common Core, which he called “a total disaster.”

He also blasted China for “killing us” in the world economy; ripped fellow Republican candidates for not talking enough about China; called alleged Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl a “no-good traitor” and even plugged his golf courses.

“I have the best courses in the world,” Trump said, in an aside offering to host Obama at one of them.

Despite pulling back in 2012, Trump had for months shown signs that he intended to get into the White House race this time.

He formed a presidential exploratory committee and made numerous visits this year to early-voting states Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Also, he was consistently competitive in early polling.

Trump’s business success will likely position him as a candidate riding a strong free-market, pro-business platform. It would also set him apart from candidates pitching a populist message and trying to make themselves relatable to middle-class voters.

“This is going to be an election, in my opinion, based on competence,” Trump said. “The American Dream is dead. And if elected president, I will make it bigger and stronger than ever.”

Trump, who was born in Queens, inherited his father’s successful real estate company in 1972 and has since grown and diversified the business to include Trump Entertainment Resorts as well as a clothing and fragrance line.

Trump’s extravagant lifestyle and brash manner is frequently on display during episodes of his long-running NBC TV show, “The Apprentice,” and later “The Celebrity Apprentice,” which the network in February approved for another season. NBC said in a statement Tuesday they would “re-evaluate Trump’s role as host of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ should it become necessary, as we are committed to this franchise.”

Trump, popularly known as “the Donald,” married for the third time in 2005 and has a total five children and seven grandchildren. He attended the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.

Listen below, it’s well worth your time:

Boy howdy…the upcoming debates are going to be great to watch, unlike last time!

I know it’s far to early to say, but do you think you could vote for Trump after the debates are over?

    http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jun/16/donald-trump-announces-run-president

    I’m in…he’s not a politician and he can’t be bought. His motivation is for country….he doesn’t need the job to sell his influence. This may be the ticket. He’s already promising that his first act as President will be to build a huge wall on the southern border. Trump has proven himself as a man that gets things done. He also hates all of the treasonous trade deals that have destroyed this nation….unlike Ted Cruz. I believe in Trump.

    http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jun/16/donald-trump-announces-run-president

  2. Where is everyone today?

  3. Disgusted Caucasian

    Donald Trump on building a “great wall.”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0GMcYD2Oz8

  4. Can he win ….don’t know but one thingfor sure’ he has stirred the pot and bitch slapped
    Obammy and some Rhinos,,,,,,, I loved it
    Jigg?

  5. Eastwood Ravine

    One things for certain, if Trump pulls it off, he’d be the first president since Reagan to fire some of the bureaucracy. No president since Reagan has had the cojones to do that.

    • Eastwood Ravine…

      Believe it or not, I just heard a caller on Mark Levin’s radio show share the same sentiments as yours.

  6. Desert Rat

    Read through the highlights of his speech. Spot on of course, he is using The Tea Party platform which is great then……….he has just been quoted over at Breitbart as saying, I’d ‘Win Easily’ If I Ran with Oprah”

    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/06/16/donald-trump-id-win-easily-if-i-ran-with-oprah/

    He likes Oprah and considers her a good person? Seriously? Maybe he is just trying to get more attention.

  7. Disgusted Caucasian

    Satire I’m sure

    • One fact is for sure…she’d never do this, a fact I’m sure Trumps knows. He mentioned same thing back in ’99…probably why Georgie asked it for his upcoming show. Plus trying to put him in a trap.

  8. Just listened to Trumps full speech, he called our current politicians stupid losers and incompetent.

    At this time I don’t know who I will vote for, but Donald has certainly speechified himself as a nonconformist candidate.

  9. Well, he pretty much is a successful businessman. Maybe that is what the nation needs to put us back in the running as a world power. At the very least, he would be able to recognize and remove some of the dead weight in government, or at least expose it to the point where the public outcry would force the entrenched to make changes.

    Doesn’t really matter either way, any maverick that gets in through a popular vote will be assassinated by the entrenched politicians loath to give up the money and power.

    But to answer the question, I will only vote for him is no one worth voting for, like for instance, Jeb Bush.

  10. Why not? I think he has just as good a chance as any of these clowns do.

    Never before in our history have “we the people” had such a clear choice as to electing someone who really doesn’t care about “getting rich being in government” who wants to “find today’s Patton” And the fact that the Trumpster has nine billion dollars of his OWN money means that he can do what is right for our nation without being under the sway of PAC’s and other money lenders. i like the idea of a Trump/Fiorina ticket…not that racist bigot Oprah.

    I also can’t wait to see him and Hillary going at it. Can you imagine Hillary having to answer to Trump? The Liberal talking heads will say publicly “Donald Trump is a joke”, but behind closed doors, you just know they are saying “Ya know…he’s not Mitt Romney. He’s a really tough guy. We’ere screwed”

    • I can’t wait for the debates…all of them!

      • Big, I think Trump will be a bomb thrower. Every time I want to like him, he does something monumentally stupid like saying he’d like Oprah as his running mate.

        awd

        • As for me, since he really declared his candidacy today…I’m seriously considering voting for him depending on the debates after all is said and done.

          Btw…did you watch all of his speech yet, just curious.

          Anyway,time will tell.

          • Big, I heard some of it but not all. Like I said, I want to get excited about him until he mentions Oprah! Is he really that stupid?? I know a guy who works for him and am going to call him tomorrow to see what’s what. I think he will be the only reason I’ll be interested in watching the debates. lol

            awd

          • I don’t take that seriously He said that back in ’99 and I think Georgie Porgie was trying to trap again according to the link I saw earlier….typical libs.

            I certainly could be wrong.

          • Big, not a good time to not be serious for Trump. I like a lot about him. We’ll find out how smart he is in the realm of politics as time goes on. If he destroys some RINOs I’ll hug his neck.

            awd

          • You and me both my friend. Another reason I look forward to the debates.

            Btw…he said he would destroy the RINOs. I don’t remember where or which show via radio I heard that today. Could have also been on O’Reilly too.

    • ya know Jenna,
      I like that idea of a Trump/ Fiorina ticket .
      both bold in there talk and don`t mind being un-PC…..that is refreshing to say the least…
      I had to laff at the talking heads yesterday as so many on Fox were so sure he would not run…then after Trump did get in ..CNN was freaking out ..lol…..
      The MSM were falling all over them selves …and to be sure the powers that be ,the elite club of globalist that hold the reins now will go after him big time..
      Now Donald often puts his foot in his mouth and does say some things I do not care for ,,,but all in all ,he is his own man ..not controlled like our Congress and Obammy the magic negro…..
      Having Trumps finger on the Nuke button is sort of scary but if it scares me ,it will scare and keep in line some over the pond….
      in the end he is gonna make for an interesting 2016..
      jigg

  11. You know he’s scaring the politicians and MSM if they are so frantically trying to mock him and make him irrelevant.

    Sure, he’s eccentric, but his results speak for themselves. He didn’t mince words and he said, for the most part, what people have been dying to hear for years and years!

    And I totally agree with Disgusted Caucasian… Spending his own money on his campaign and rich as hell, he won’t be joining the good ‘ol boys club.

    Plus, you just gotta love that golf course dig at Obama. Heheh.

  12. I just came across this pic……..I’m pretty sure it’s not fake………all I can say is I’m not surprised……..

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10204511980934912&set=a.1382765964566.2056513.1094486058&type=1&theater

    ……….f__ck you……………you god damn fagot…………not only are you the worst nightmare this country has ever been cursed with, your a god-damn queer as well……………….

  13. Trump just wrote the book for others to follow. Lets see who figures it out first.

  14. Wow! Certainly an impressive speech most of which I liked and agreed with. His extraordinary success and competence in business, his emphasis on having only the best negotiators working on behalf of American interests, on strengthening the military and respecting the service veterans, on eliminating “Obamacare”, on coming down hard on illegal immigration mostly by Hispanics, and his willingness to criticize the entire corrupt political establishment and their special interest groups (both Republican and Democrat) are all very encouraging signs to me. And let’s not forget his tough talk towards the sneaky and aggressive Chinese government.

    On the other hand, the fact that he considers monsters like the Saudis who still treat women worse than stray dogs (along with so many other horrible things all related to Islam) as his good friends simply because they are high-end clients worries me. That and the way he recently spoke badly of arguably the bravest living American patriot, Pamela Geller.

    Competence is great and I’m for it in all areas of life. At the same time, I remember the words of American general Norman Schwazkopf who said, “Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.”

    In other words, can he really be trusted to do the right thing – even when it’s not “profitable” economically speaking?

    Needless to say, he certainly couldn’t be any worse than all of the rotten democrats or rhinos who want to be the next American president.

  15. Spurwing Plover

    I hear he wantsOprah Winfree and his running mate

  16. The most disgusting of articles via the National Review…

    “Witless Ape Rides Escalator”

    http://www.nationalreview.com/article/419853/witless-ape-rides-escalator-kevin-d-williamson

    • the libtard “left” is showing it’s true colors………they go after the one’s they fear the most……..

      the left can not tolerate straight talk……..they’re incensed by the truth……..they will do everything they can to destroy anyone who exposes them for what they really are…………and they intend on going after “the donald”

      this time I don’t think Palinizing “the donald” will work……but they are going to try simply because it’s in their play book…………they don’t have anything else……they certainly can’t fight with the truth………

  17. As was pointed out earlier he’s his own man and will not be bought out like many other rhinos. The left also tells us who they fear most and by all accounts it’s trump.
    He’s not the perfect candidate but overall he’s the best out there so far, he’s got my vote so far
    I’ll supply the pop corn for the debates! He will destroy Hillary!
    Trump/Fiorina would be a formidable ticket imo!
    P.s. F.u boehner!

  18. Quick sidenote: For those you that really like Trump, he’ll be on Hannity’s show for the full hour in a few hours.

  19. Lots of promises, but how many will be kept if elected?

    One thing is for sure, the entire Republican Party, EVERYTHING in it, needs a jolly good purging if anything needs to get done.

    Corruption, cowardliness, compromising and greed have turned it into a party of monkeys throwing scat at each other and screeching nonsense.

    Suffice to say nothing’s getting done and nothing will unless theirs an entire overhaul of everything there in.

    Don’t get me wrong, Trump has proven time and time again he’s a man of his word and gets things done. However, unless he’s planing to do everything himself, it would bankrupt him if he did, he’s going to need a strong party backing him and not a bunch hindsight and or do nothing politicians.

    Someone needs to bring back the balls to America and undo the transgender reassignment surgery that’s turned us all into an Obamanation!

  20. Never, ever forget that H. Ross Perot got Billy Clintoon elected twice. Wouldn’t it be just swell if another egomaniacal multi-billionaire got his wife elected? We need someone more like Ronald Reagan to rescue this country, not some Trumped up, ego-driven, Manhatten money man to right this sinking country.

  21. IntAceptor

    I feel, except for people that frequent AWD and the like, the country has gone too deep into P.C. and most voters “Can’t handle the truth” much anymore.

    Trump is a bright spot in the night time but the brightness hurts too many people’s eyes and they turn away from it.

    The first day of his presidency, he would have to get rid of everyone that Obama put in office and replace them with those who have a strong national background whose allegiance is to America alone and not torn between two ideals.

  22. He’s pro abortion and he wants a tax on wealth. In addition he’s a complete douche bag and has no chance of winning. But by all means let’s take votes away from Ted Cruz and Rand Paul so that Jeb gets the nomination. Good plan.

  23. Could Trump win? As much as I like him, he will never get the Republican establishment nomination. They would rather nominate another loser before Trump.

  24. Trump surges in polls. He’s now #2 in the race…Jeb is the only one above him.

  25. NBC dumps Trump.

    Of course Trump fights back.

    http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/nbc-dumps-trump

  26. I never thought I’d say it, but from what I’ve seen so far, this is my guy in 2016. Totally.

    What a breath of fresh air, a candidate that speaks his mind, and could care less about being politically correct!

  27. Is He Really That Dumb?

    What is wrong with this nation? People actually considering voting for Trump? Mind-blowing! No political experience, rude, stupid, brash and a liar. How will the world view us after we show them that we don’t care about our own nation’s leadership? It’s not about him being politically correct or not; it’s about how he has to be able to deal with other nations’ leaders who are real-life politicians and, if he doesn’t know how to play that game with real finesse, the USA will further fall behind as being the joke of the planet. The fact that he is rich means he can be a fascist as he wants and everyone seems to see him that way already. Don’t think that rich means fair, folks! Usually, it doesn’t. Have some dignity, for God’s sake and let us bring the USA back to being a nation we can be proud of by not perpetuating mediocrity.

    • We’ve already shown the rest of the world that we don’t care about our leadership. We currently have a second term president that hates the nation he runs, white people, Christians, and as far as most can see, the western way of life.

      At least Trump will do something about the nation’s broken border policy. He will try to keep the undesirables coming in to a minimum. Rude, stupid, brash, and a liar? You have just described every politician, everywhere, on either side (R or D). The part about him being politically inexperienced? You mean that you want another corrupt politician such as El Jeb or Shrillary? Just business as usual, is that it?

      Trump is a negotiator. He will negotiate the best treaties, policies, whatever, because he’s a billionaire businessman, NOT a politician. There will be no back room dealings where both parties make deals to enrich themselves at the expense of the American people. Sure, he might make money off of it, but you can bet your ass that he will not sell out this nation.

      Voting for a candidate put forth by either the DNC or the RNC will ensure that the mediocrity that you fear so much will continue unabated.

      Vote Trump. Put America first, and back on top.
