    Default Question - why is Trump doing this?

    I kept wondering this for the past year and more but didn't actually stop and really think about it, as a thinking man should.

    He is rich, famous, been on TV since the "Oprah" 80's, playboy, limousines, cushy private jets, stunningly beautiful women (please no "because of his daddy" nonsense if he was a loser he'd ruin that in months).

    TV show star, successful business man, real estate mogul with plush hotels and towering establishments in his namesake, world-renowned.. Is friends with celebrities (gag).

    Spends millions of his own money in the campaign! (unlike your queen god Hillary)

    So what does devoting himself to the presidency get him?

    Shoot me if I am being naive but I am just wondering what's to gain.

    You lob crap. It misses.

    Then you run like cowards, pretending you weren't addressing what was addressed at all.

    Enough sarcasm.

    You just say the nonsense with conviiction because like the rest of the attacking idea-less left, you have NOTHING.

    Of course if I were actually complaining that someone is posting in my thread, you'd post it as proof.

    But since all you do is lie, and double down on it to make it look relevant, you can't.

    How much do you get paid to do this?

    I do it for free, because I can't stand leftist idiocy.

    It's more than a slogan to him.

    He knows it's his God-given role in life now. It's almost not even his choice.


    But such people don't move history out of altruism. They need to be driven by a force that is personal but is congruent with the needs of history, pregnant with its new child.
    I believe it is his ego that is congruent with the needs of emerging history now. But we will have to wait and see whether history uses Trump to evolve into what it wants to be. If it does, Trump will do amazingly wonderful things for the nation and then drop off like an empty shell after he is no longer of use.

    All this completely independent of what the screaming libs think or want.

    I can think of a few reasons:

    1) It is a yuuuuuuuge boost to his ego. Now, he'll get to enjoy that yuuuuuuge boost for 4 years as he has more "thank you rallies."
    2) This puts him in a very good position to get much more favorable tax laws on the books for him and his billionaire buddies. He's a businessman, so this makes a lot of sense.
    3) Speaking of business, this puts him (and, by extension, his kids) in a good position to build the Trump empire even bigger. Again, he's a businessman, so it makes a lot of sense from a business point of view.

    None of the aggravation of putting up with petty politics and leftists and Democrats who undermine for no reason but to undermine makes it worth it.

    Just because the left, and the Democrats are so unhinged, and unbuckled over Trump is the reason I believe he is doing this for all the right reasons.

    Congratulations on being ridiculous.

    You force me to believe in Trump.

    There's an answer, just not one that you will accept because it doesn't maintain the integrity of your world view.

    It means you refuse to acknowledge a substantive answer unless it justifies your world view.

    You're unaware?
    Trump supporters have space bugs in their heads. It is the only explanation.
