Increase of the GDP above 3 percent.

There have been many presidents in the nation's history. Some were scoundrels, others were thieves, and some were morons.

But Trump was the first president to be all three...

Oh, come on.

Trump graduated from the best business school in the country and had the brainpower to take a 1 million dollar loan, plus advice, and turned it into multiple billions.

Elkin couldn't become a billionaire, nor could I.

Schumer displays poor judgment, but he is the only major politician we know of who got a perfect score on his college boards.

It is one thing to disagree with a person on policy, but quite another to label them a "moron."

Even in Elkin's case, my staff members measured his IQ against that of a locust fence post. Guess which won?

Johnnie...why do you persist in making up nonsensical bullshit.

NO

Trump did not take a million dollar loan and turn it into billions, he lived off his billionare father's dole. If Trump truly took one million dollars and turned it into billions of dollars...it would have been truly remarkable.

Very few people have pulled that off; Buffett, Bezos, Gates, Zuckerberg, Page/Brin. Trump by no means is in that class.

I would hasten to admit that it would be quite valuable to get the experience of a father in the same business.

But Google Trump's childhood house. It was not tiny, but it merely reflected a modestly successful father.

It is just completely ridiculous to claim Trump's father was a billionaire even at the apex of his net worth. Again, look at his childhood house.

Johnnie...

For the life of me I just can't understand why you keep on parroting the same lies over and over again about Trump turning a 1 million dollar loan into a multi-billion dollar fortune?

No matter how many times you parrot it over...that's just bullshit. Maybe you should explain the math behind the returns he would have needed to make such money.

Elkin, there's no formula or equation which permits anybody to become a billionaire.

Were it so, Elkin would be a billionaire and so would I.

We aren't, and that is because we can't do it.

Trump did do it, by relying on his father's guidance to some extent plus a 1 million loan.

However, his father advised him to stay out of the ritzy areas of NY and Trump did not do that.

Getting your ass handed to you by Ms. Pelosi because you're an incompetent rank amateur negotiator hardly a national emergency.

Unless you are misogynist or have a freakishly small penis or, as in Trump's case, both.
