    they morning talk shows are abuzz with positive vibes surrounding Donald Jr's. Speech on the second night of the RNC Convention. If you listened to him, did he help or hurt his dad's chances to be elected?

    Also, do you like or dislike the use of Trump's children in his run to the Oval Office? Is this despicable nepotism on display? Or does this shed a positive view on 'family' and could it bring a positive change to emphasize and assist in building pride and a return to the American family?

    I didn't listen to him. (I haven't watched a minute of the convention.) But he got good reviews on Twitter. At least parts of his speech was cribbed from a conservative, unlike Melania's cribbing from Obama. I'd say he helped create the illusion that his dad isn't a liberal pretending to be a conservative. So I guess that helps him.

    I'm OK with his family working with the campaign. I would not be OK with his family getting prominent jobs in his administration. (Shivers)

    I seriously doubt any of them will be working for the feds. They make too, too much money working and running Trump Enterprises.

    Three wives really speaks to a positive view on family .:rolleyes: Who in their right mind mentions Donald Trump and positive family in the same breath?

    From what I've seen of them, I'd say Donald Trump's children are a credit to him.

    They might be a credit to him(with all the bankruptcies, he might need them to put a thing or two in their names). but they certainly are NOT building pride and return to the American family unless there's a time when we praised multiple baby mamas by the same dad.

    In August 2014 Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s son, came to Iceland over a weekend and rented an apartment from Ragnar Þór Jónsson, an Icelandic entrepreneur.

    In an interview with Fréttatíminn Ragnar says: “It sucks to hear a hypocrite give a speech on Christian values” commenting on the Republican nominee son’s passionate speech at the RNC.

    “I later heard that they invited 15 Icelandic girls to go out with them for dinner and drinks at a restaurant and paid each one 15 thousand Icelandic krónur (around USD 120) just for joining them. Those that were ‘most fun’, whatever that means, would get to go on a glacier trip,” Ragnar continued.

    “Then I met him partying downtown that night and mentioned that he had been on the news in Iceland. Then he becomes ice cold and orders all his team to go to the apartment right away that they had to return to the States right away. The reason was that his then fiancée, now wife, had no knowledge of this bachelor’s trip to Iceland. Within an hour from hearing that they were on the news in Iceland they had left on his father’s private plane from Reykjavík Airport.”

    Fréttatíminn asks about the apartment. Ragnar continues:

    “Wow, the state that apartment was in. There was some white powder all around the apartment, someone had p..ed into the bathtub, broken the dining table and leaving the whole place in shambles. The did leave a lot of booze, which was rather popular [with me]”.

    in an interview with "First Coast News" in Florida, when he was asked to list possible female candidates for cabinet positions if he were elected president. Trump responded during the interview by naming his daughter, Ivanka and declining to identify any other women who could be considered for roles.
