    The man is a manic egotist, loose cannon, irrational, unthinking, believes current emotional feeling is more important than experience, has no foreign policy experience, has no coherent foreign policy, has no patience, believes only in self, is in bed with Putin, will give China the South China Sea, will not abide by our responsibilities to NATO countries, is lazy, will never listen to advisers. These are only starters.

    Nope. They know Hillary and they've experienced Obama. They're used to that.

    Plus they know Hillary is for sale. She's already bought and paid for by the Russians.

    Well some of those we know fits Obama and Hillary. Not sure what you can point to that would support the fear being expressed by the world and by yourself here. What specifically did Trump say or do that scares you? Just pick one at a time, or two.

    * Says he might not honor commitments to NATO
    * Says he would pull out of NAFTA
    * Says he would put tariffs on countries that won't renegotiate trade agreements
    * Says he will not allow US companies to move their HQ's outside the US
    * Says he would encourage US companies to move their HQ's outside the US
    * Says he might not serve as President if elected (Oops, that would be in the PLUS column. LOL!)

    In case my list wasn't enough, here's a new one, this one is from today, and muscles out all the other ones Iisted.
    -----------------

    Donald Trump asked a foreign policy expert advising him why the U.S. can't use nuclear weapons, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said on the air Wednesday, citing an unnamed source who claimed he had spoken with the GOP presidential nominee.

    "Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on the international level went to advise Donald Trump. And three times [Trump] asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked at one point if we had them why can't we use them," Scarborough said on his "Morning Joe" program.

    "Unnamed source" Ain't that competent?


    ...and the stars
    [nuclear fusion] of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind [Revelation 6:13]. Maybe this *%&^ world is being pushed closer to its end.

    First, I thought you hate unnamed sources. Second his asking questions is not telling of anything nefarious. Much ado about nothing.

    CNBC has asked the Trump campaign for a response. Let's see what happens.

    His asking the question indicates that he is clueless when it comes to foreign policy. Absolutely a MORON. Not knowing the answer to that question shows a person does not understand that a 65 year long (at least) policy of nuclear weapons as a deterrence, NOT a first strike weapon. When Trump says, "we're going to utterly defeat ISIS and we're going to do it fast", this is exactly what I understand him as meaning.

    Have you seen Trump at the MORON conventions?

    Trump hasn't been a politician, let alone having the experience of Hillary, that he would have a lot of knowledge of foreign political matters. But, smart people surround themselves with people who know things.

    What Trump does know is sales, and claiming he will defeat ISIS fast is just a sales pitch. Only a moron would think he's ready to use nukes. By "he" I mean, Trump, not Ted Cruz who threatened to use nukes (make the "sand glow") against ISIS.

    Trump's relative lack of support for the Iraq war shows he's more sensible about the use of the military than Hillary (or Cruz, Jeb, etc.)

    Scary, and we know Obama and Hillary have done such a tremendous job with foreign relations. /sarc

    The current administration has had no intention of using US muscle for any of our NATO partners, and Trump would likely continue that pattern. They did however do a wonderful job in Libya. /more sarc

    How does one become a multi million dollar planner/builder by being irrational and unthinking?

    He started off a multimillionaire because of his father. His ethics are anything but ethical. He cheated and lied. He has filed for bankruptcy multiple times.

    Start with a $100 million inheritance from Daddy.

    The ironic thing is--had Trump invested his money in a vanilla stock index fund, he'd be more wealthy today than through his so-called business skills.
