Yeah, makes it easier than having to find all those loopholes so he can avoid paying for 20 years. Just get rid of the taxes altogether!
Give (don't accept) $400k and get $40kk back in tax reductions or more. Exactly what any good businessman would do.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trumpet will "DRAIN THE SWAMP".
I think if you are an American citizen regardless of race,colour or creed, the Trump presidency will be very good for you.
If you currently reside illegally in USA you will find yourself "behind the wall"
eventually.Maybe start packing now already? It's inevitable. Trump and Nigel Farade already had a meeting. I'm sure immigration was top of the agenda.

You talk as if Farage is a visiting World leader! He resigned from politics months ago and is only filling in until his own party can find a new leader. His opinion holds as much merit and worth as you or me.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I'm just looking forward to Mr Trump outing himself as the New York Democrat he always was.

What's that? The Iran deal stays? Obamacare isn't such a bad thing after all? This is just the start of it...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The best way to get rid off populist is to elect them. And then watch the blitzkrieg. I just wonder if people even have any interest in holding them accountable when they run into a wall. Why would they...when real life (without the necessity to actually and painfully think) is "happening" now virtually. Virtual wall does not exist.

Don't be scared of that thing. He'll be spending the next year selling his arse all over Europe, despite his party stating that they do not support Le Penn.

I find myself revisiting a lot of the late, great Bill Hick's videos lately.

He's the guy you see in movies who toadies up to the supervillian, only to find himself cast into a lake of ravenous sharks once he's served his purpose.

Alternatively, this is what us Brits do with our politicians once we've had enough of them

That, my dear, is the Former Economic Secretary to the Treasury, making an absolute plonker of himself on national TV last night, and loving every minute of it. The future for Farage is this, Big Brother or eating bugs in the Australian rainforest.

Place your bets now on which show he'll end up doing

Oh, I know who he is, but what is that dreadful show?

Is this what has become of British television? I mean, it was shite before I left, but really!

I could never really understand the term "populist" when democracy is based on the population voting. It strikes me as an elitist terminology for the rest of the unwashed masses. I don't understand the negative connotation of it, or what value there is in using it. I suspect it is a terminology that has very little value in the new political reality we are now in. How is it still relevant, and is it not passé?

It strikes me as a word for a conceptual wall that merely detaches certain conversations from reality.

I know what she thinks of this - they just aired in CZ that she has just asked Trump to be the ambassador in CZ.

I fully expect Trump to be the best president in history!

Whether he lives up to my expectation is a different kettle of fish.

The queen has to have him over for tea. She really should write a set of memoirs.

I fully expect Trump to be the best president for the US in history!

Whether he lives up to my expectation is a different kettle of fish.

I agree, for the US. Trump is a game changer, and has the potential to set the US in the right direction for the next 50 or 100 years.

He certainly has the disposition, inclination and position for that potential.

The inverse may apply for its enemies. Trump may be the most horrible US president for America's enemies. I don't expect everyone in the whole world to be happy with Trump. But that just a natural consequence when a US President makes a stand for the US.

i'm sure he'll make plenty of mistakes, which is alright, as long as he corrects them.
