    He's a showman, not a businessman. The guy doesn't really understand the first thing about finance, business management, etc. He's proven that repeatedly. What he can do is be bombastic and hog the camera until his name attracts dollars like jupiter attracts moons.

    Trump has over 500 successful and profitable businesses.

    Please explain what your evidence is to support you moronic claim?

    I think trump is good at deal making and he's going to be a good US president. Not as good as Bill Gates or Elon Musk would be, but definitely far better than that feminazi old hag.

    Will he be a good CEO? I'd say he'll be a moderate one.

    Not bad. He keep his biz floating. It takes some form of meritocracy and leadership to keep a confessional biz going. And he has many bizs.

    IT bizs are different than normal bizs. IT bizs have unsual ideas and high margin if you hit jackpot.

    To consistently win in normal biz you need common sense more than ingenuity and Trump have both. Not extreme cases of both. But far more than average both.

    And how do you persuade the bank to believe that they are better off to help you than letting you fail?

    Basically there was a crisis. Trump is one of those affected. He basically told the bank that if they let him continue, his whole biz worth more than his loan.

    The bank continues. I bet after some deal where the bank would get extra profit share or something. He continued. And it works.

    I can't do that.

    Shillary cannot do that.

    Trump can. And DID.

    Also I would worry a lot about hiring someone who makes money through politic.

    Hillarious make money by getting bribe through "speaking fee". That is serious conflict of interests.

    I'd consider him a better mafioso or cartel lord to be honest.

    The word that I have a problem with in your post is most. Donald J Trump has built a multi-billion dollar company. He has employed many people. There are many, many projects of his that are finished on time and beating budget. Has he had some that went south? You bet. Abraham Lincoln, Henry Ford, and Walt Disney all filed bankruptcy. People who are willing to take a chance, will have successes, and they will have failures.

    Mark Cuban, who detests Donald J Trump said, "Failure is part of the success equation."

    I totally agree. US has it's BEST presidential candidate ever. His opponent is the worst ever.

    There's no way he's even marginally involved in their success. Investing is not the same as running a business.
