Here is a fact check on the billionaire bloviator/bully who has outdone showman P.T. Barnum and should be given the huckster of the universe award …
Yes. Donald Trump is a registered Republican, but so were other staunch democrats who thought it might be faster to run as a Republican than wait their turn for their party’s endorsement.
No. Donald Trump is not a conservative if one sees how he supports key positions and funds the New York democrats. I do not give him a pass for ideology, but will give him a pass for supporting those politicians he may need to support his various real estate ventures. He appears to be more donkey than elephant.
Yes. Donald Trump is in first place in a number of polls. Possibly because of his non-stop, over-the-top promotions of everything Trump. Turning the first debate into a political beauty contest. Trump, unlike the other candidates, has nothing to lose by shooting off his mouth; no matter how outrageous his message. I have heard that democrats are pushing a Trump candidacy to disadvantage the GOP
And, about making America great again … while Trump is a wheeler-dealer, he is most likely going to outsource all of the details and remain above the fray as a “big picture” man. Something that we see with President Barack Obama. And, like President Obama, Trump is quick to throw those that get in trouble under the bus.
Bottom line …
Trump appears to be playing a very high-stakes game by not disavowing a third-party run. Possibly to coerce others to give him the stage. At this point in time, it appears that the true frontrunners are Jeb Bush, Governor Scott Walker. and Senator Marco Rubio.
