    I came across this interesting list of qualifications for Trump today! The poster, on FB didn't know who the author of this list was, so I too do not have anyone to attribute it to, but, whoever it was that wrote this list had some time on their hands!

    The Trumpster's Presidential qualifications...
    Obama is against Trump... Check
    The Media are against Trump... Check
    The establishment Democrats are against Trump... Check
    The establishment Republicans are against Trump... Check
    The Pope is against Trump... Check
    The UN is against Trump... Check
    The EU is against Trump... Check
    China is against Trump... Check

    Black Lives Matter is against Trump... Check
    Move On is against Trump... Check
    Koch Brothers are against Trump... Check
    Bushes are against Trump ... Check
    Planned Parenthood is against Trump....Check
    Hillary & Sanders are both against Trump ... Check
    Illegal aliens are against Trump ... Check
    Islam is against Trump ... Check
    Kasich & Cruz are against Trump ... Check
    Hateful, racist, violent Liberals are against Trump..Check

    NOW THAT BEING SAID... It seems to me, Trump MUST BE the Best
    Qualified Candidate we could ever have.
    If you have so many political insiders and left wing NUT CASES all
    SCARED TO DEATH, that they all speak out against him
    at the same time!!

    Most of all, it will be the People's Choice... PLUS He's not a Lifetime
    Politician...Check
    He's not a Lawyer.....Check
    He's not doing it for the money...Check
    He's a Natural Born American Citizen born in the USA from American parents

    Bonus points! Whoopi says she will leave the country...
    Rosie says she will leave the country...
    Sharpton says he will leave the country...
    Gov. Brown says California will build a wall...
    Cher says she will leave the country...
    Cyrus says she will leave the country...
    The Constitution and the Bill of Rights will prevail....
    Hillary will go to jail.....
    The budget will be balanced in 8 years....
    Americans will have first choice at jobs.....
    You will not be able to marry your pet....
    You will be able to keep your gun(s) if you qualify... (Not a criminal,
    etc.)
    Only Live Human American Registered Citizens can vote....
    You can have and keep your own Doctor.....

    He will make AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Come to think of it, we have no place
    to go, but UP!

    Now, do I like or agree with this list? for the most part yes! It is pretty good, but I am interested in your opinions and views too! So have at it! I'm sure there are naysayers waiting to jump on each and every point listed above! Laugh

    Also, well-informed people are against Trump.
    Persons who listen to his rhetoric and understand it for what it is are against Trump.

    Sane people do not make decisions based on the negative opinions of others. Having someone against you is not a qualification at all. How many of these people and groups are FOR Jeffrey Dahmer?

    Lots of nut cases are for him too.

    The job of the President doesn't pay much for what is spent to get into the position. I don't think ANYONE in US history has done it "for the money."

    Beyond that, many incompotent people are not lifetime politicians, attorneys, and natural-born citizens.

    And what is this "...from American parents" line about? Are you saying there is something wrong with the large number of us who have parent(s) who were born in another country? Nice bit of xenophobia there.

    Since Trump wants to violate the Bill of Rights in regard to religious liberty and freedom of the press, where do you get this idea?

    On Saturday, I had the misfortunate of having to wait at the garage for a vehicle inspection and Sean Hannity was playing Trump clips, trying to get people to get onboard the Trump bandwagon. He played several clips of Trump talking about indiscriminately carpet-bombing the Middle East (ISIS, but he stated he wasn't worried about collateral damage, or women and children), and "getting Exxon in there" and "keeping their oil."

    So when was this golden time when America was "great"? Don't get me wrong, we have had a number of periods of greatness, but there are always dark sides. And the reality is that Trump is PROMISING some very dark things - conquest, ending religious liberty, and clamping down on freedom of the press. We have never been a country who has embraced those dark things as a matter of standard policy.

    It's one of the dumbest things you have ever posted.

    The golden years of the US was from 1776-1964.

    Whoever came up with the points listed in the OP probably does not have much experience in hiring people.

    ASK ME IF I REALLY CARE WHAT YOU THINK .... you seem to have a superior view of your thoughts over those of others. That is sad. Sad that you are so pompous and self serving.

    If you did not want opinions, why did you solicit them?

    I think most of the people opposed to Trump are that way precisely because he is unqualified to be President. Only a nitwit could suppose that being unqualified are "qualifications".

    Apparently not enough time to actually look into some of this.

    Obama doesn't like anyone not named Obama so that's not saying much

    They were so against him they gave him billions of dollars of free air time.
    As far as I can tell once again the GOP let the media pick their nominee.

    After they hand picked him out of the field of 17 by voting form him in open primaries.
    Of course Dems are against the Republican nominee that kind of goes without saying.

    Except when they are golfing buddies right?
    Kasich little trick showed that Trump was the establishments pick over Cruz.

    Considering Trump's pro-choice stance I would hope so, although I couldn't care less one way or the other about how the Pope feels about American Politics.

    They would be against any Republican candidate so again this goes without saying.

    One things I respect about the Bushes.

    Except when he is talking about what great things they do on stage at debates.

    Except when he was giving millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundations and they were hobnobbing together at social functions.
    And again they are Dems of course they are going to be against the Republican nominee even if before this they were BFFs.


    And how is Trump any different from Cruz in this regards

    Kasich stunt proved that he is not against Trump, that he was just making sure that Cruz didn't have a chance since Cruz was the establishments worse nightmare.
    Of course a Conservative like Cruz is against a Statest like Trump, hence why Cruz still has my vote.

    Actually from what I have seen of liberals they are rejoicing over his pick since they have it won in their minds. They wanted Trump to be the nominee to make it a cake walk for the Dems.

    Unless you're one of the 33 million people that voted against him in the primary, and you don't count being in on the crony capitalism side of politicas a "lifetime politician"


    Nope he just owns a team of lawyers to sue anyone he doesn't agree with, or to take old women's property.
    Uh huh, sure he is not, that's why he just loaned his campaign money and is taking donations.

    And so are millions and millions of other people in this country.

    They say that about every Republican Candidate. So far they have never followed through on their promise.

    Except when he is gutting the first amendment to sue people who disagree with him. trampling over the 4th amendment to take people's houses to build a hotel. Or destroying the constitution by ordering our military to commit war crimes.
    Doubt it, they were after all BFFs before this started.
    Sure because inflating away the debt has worked so well in the past for so many other countries.
    With the inflation he is proposing yeah I doubt it.
    Could say the same thing about Cruz and it would have been much more believable.
    Except that Trump loves single payer health care, so he would just make Obamacare worse.

    Pure campaign slogan but he has not proved it to me, in fact all he has done is show that it can get much much worse. His idea of printing more money shows has no sense of how economies really work or any sense of history of other countries that have just printed more and more money.


    Well here you go, here is someone else's opinion, do with it what you want.

    Actually, his mother was not born in the USA. She was born in Scotland.

    He's qualified because some are against him; well, some were against Obama. Did that qualify him?

    He's qualified because some loud-mouths have promised to leave the country; well, we already know they're loud-mouths. Most, if not all, of them won't leave the country. They'll just complain more, and use him as a punch line every chance they can.

    These "qualifications" stem from an un-credited source on Facebook; obviously, a reputable source of information. <sarcasm tag>

    He's back-pedaled on his claim that he would have military officers waterboard terrorists; he's back-pedaled on his claim that women who have abortions should be punished; he's back-pedaled on his promise to sue the Republican National Party regarding delegates; and today, he's walking back his statements about dealing with the U.S. debt.

    And here's his latest quote, about statements he made with Howard Stern: "In an interview with the Washington Post published on Tuesday, the former reality television star said he wouldn't have made so many bawdy comments to Stern if he knew he would actually follow through on his White House ambitions." Not "I'm sorry for what I said"; but "if I'd known I was going to follow through on my White House ambitions."

    This is the guy you think is qualified for the presidency?

    Please don't complain about this post, or make statements that you think I'm full of myself, or other such crapola; you asked for opinions, you got them. If you don't want to hear (read) the opinions, don't ask for 'em. And when you do get what you asked for, don't be so thin-skinned and offended about it.
