His net worth, according to the latest figures from Forbes.com, is 4.5 Billion dollars. He is arguably the GOP’s most successful, strong, and charismatic candidate; and yet I can’t stand him. It’s not because I belong to some other party as I have no affiliation. I just don’t think Trump is up to the job.
Do I think that his business acumen would help the country? Yes. The Trump Organization earned nearly $605 million in revenue last year, and managed to clear somewhere between $275 and $325 million in profit. He has had successful TV shows (I.E. the Celebrity Apprentice,) shown skill at property development with Trump Tower, and been a master of the deal with careful investments. But is hea ready to be CEO of the United States? Absolutely not.
The problem with the Donald is that he’s a pompous arrogant jackass. Granted that he has earned the title over the years, but when it comes down to running a country, you’ve got to have diplomacy. You’ve got to be willing to swallow the failures of others who work for you, acceptant of those who think differently, and put a cap on what is becoming a bad case of logorrhea.
His mouth needs a serious filter. If he wins the presidency, we’ll have world leaders known for such gems as:
- Part of the beauty of me is that I am very rich.
- A certificate of live birth is not the same thing by any stretch of the imagination as a birth certificate.
- Laziness is a trait in blacks.
- Free trade is terrible. Free trade can be wonderful if you have smart people. But we have stupid people.

I really don’t think this person deserves to be in charge of my country. Granted, if he wins, I will respect the office. Any man or woman who has the cohunes to make the tough decisions has my admiration and respect. But as a person, as someone who is a private citizen and who cares about his country I cannot and will not vote for or endorse this man as the next leader of the United States.
