    My problem with Trump is he's never had a clear cut plan on anything. But I've thought about it and maybe that's not such a bad thing. If he says we're going to fix this or that without a telling how, he can't really go back on his words like many politicians do.

      ^ this is something I think alot of people are underestimating. The media is going to absolutely rip Trump to pieces. Remember what they did to Mitt Romney over his multiple homes, his wealth, etc? Multiple that by 10.

      The liberal dominated MSM has been screamed for years that the Republicans are nothing but a bunch of uneducated bigots ... and now they have their perfect example: Donald J Trump.

        Really????

        I'll expect updates on THE WALL, starting with negotiations with Mexico starting on his second day in office.

            He doesn't need a clear plan, also known as micro management. All he needs to do is direct experts to accomplish those tasks. Of course Hillary just like Obama will have a hard time finding anyone to work on her staff.

              When he makes grand statements then he better have a plan on how they are going to accomplish all the great things he has promised of which not one can he accomplish.

              He is going to build a wall.

              He his going to bring jobs back to America.

              He is going to place high tariff on goods from China.

              He is going to defeat ISIS?

              He is going to MAKE other Nato nations pay their fair share.

              He is going to make Mexico pay for his wall.

              He is going to increase the military.

              He is going to decrease taxes.

              He is going to toss some beans out the window to see what other fantasy he has.

              Has he said one time just how he is going to do all these wonders?

                Don't forget getting rid of the entire accumulated National Debt in less than 8 years. Oh wait even HE had to walk that on back.... Yuuuuuge walk back.

                  All doable, just don't ask a Democrat because they aren't interested.

We shall have to see what impact the respective campaigns have. Also certain events in the wider world could help Trump.

                    In fact, odds of "1-3" are extremely poor and mean that she has only one chance in three, or only a 33% chance of winning anything, while Trump's chances are far higher at 2:1.

                    The bigger number has to be on the left side.

                      Knock, knock anybody home?

                      Next to none of them are doable.

                      Start with the cost of the Wall, the real cost of building and manning the Wall goes well beyond any sum he has yet mentioned.

                      High tariffs on good from China well be payed by US consumers but only for a short while before they an big business revolts. WalMart with all Made in America. $20 for that t-shirt that you used to buy for $5. Sure.

                      He is going to make other Nato members pay their fair share. How?

                      He is going to increase Military spending.

                      But he is also cutting taxes so just how in hell is this nut case going to do all this with less income but much higher outlays of funds?

                        Oh and no cuts to Social Security or Medicare....

                        Projected deficit under his plans hits a billion $$ a years.

                            HAH, Obama already cut Medicare and SS for our elders. The only cuts from Trump will be to the people that never paid into the system that take the American taxpayer for a free ride.

                              So you have no mature reply.

                              Deflection, deflection just like Trumpister. Drop the tr and add a D sound more like where his plan belong.

                                Of course he can when he can't fulfill any of his promises then the monkey is on his back.
