    You know, Trump began with an apartment complex in Cincinnati, Ohio. His father left a couple of hundred million dollars. That alone is enough to make you an establishment figure. I think that Trump was a little lucky in the New York City real estate market and on Fifth Avenue because the downtown Indianapolis real estate market boomed during the Reagan years but then succumbed to a crime wave that has been unabated now for several years. And Indianapolis is headquarters for the Simon Brothers, who own many of the shopping centers in the USA, but even their Indianapolis properties are in bad shape as traditional shopping centers are closing due to crime, recession, and online buying. So Trump developed luxury buildings and golf courses and developed a reputation for being able to get things done well and quickly--not easy in today's real estate world. But, no, Fifth Avenue is not that tolerant of shady. Trump's reputation is one of great personal warmth and friendliness.

    Now it is true that China has stolen so many property rights from the USA and that China is in a military buildup to extend their empire, which decades ago brutally repressed Tibet and now is trying to use their puppet North Korea to launch a military attack on Japan, Guam, South Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan, and perhaps Australia. So the USA is thinking of pivoting away from China into a loose federation with Europe. And it is thought that Putin is desperate for money and men, as alcoholism kills perhaps thirty percent of Russian males. Also, Putin has had his fill of Muslim jihad and of the filth of homosexuality, but his military remains dangerous even if a little broke. But Putin sees tens of millions of Chinese soldiers on his southern flank, ready to march against him if he weakens any more. China, because of communist policy, murdered so many girl babies that China has a shortage of women and treats women as slaves almost as much as Muslims treat women especially brutally.

    Now the Democrats, never very good at foreign policy, after being for Stalin and Russia for so many years, including under Obama, who tried a reset with them and promised to be more flexible and sold them 20% of US uranium mines and ridiculed GOP concern about Russia, is opposed to a pivot away from China and has tried since the last year of Obama's term to somehow cover up Obama's crimes with Russia by saying that Obama's crimes were GOP crimes. Remember it is China that stole Hillary's emails and learned about ten thousand State Department secrets.

    It will be interesting to see if Australia wants to ally with China or Russia as the USA tries to extinguish one way or another the threat of a North Korean (Chinese) nuclear attack on Free World targets.

    Donald Trump was loaned a total of one million dollars from his father, not hundreds of millions.

    From the ridiculous op:

    "Look, I can’t prove what was in Trump’s head, or what he knew or when he knew it."


    And there ya have it. A bunch of speculation and innuendo. This is usually what a hit piece is full of.
