Look at the state of the world right now. It’s a terrible mess, and that’s putting it mildly. There has never been a more dangerous time. The politicians and special interests in Washington, DC, are directly responsible for the mess we are in. So why should we continue listening to them?

It’s time to bring America back to its rightful owners—the American people.

Okay, I don't want to go all conspiracy theory on you, but it's hard not to apply cui bono here. Under normal circumstances, you'd expect the Dems to be worried. They've had two terms in office, the US is still not doing so well economically, and Hillary is notoriously unpopular with a large chunk of the electorate. She ought to be having serious problems, and people on the left ought to be starting to shrug their shoulders and say, well, maybe some of those Republicans aren't that bad. Instead, ...more

It's been a week into the new Trump administration, and he has proven himself to be far more than just an Asshole. He is something far more dangerous. I sincerely worry (and I doubt that I'm alone in thinking this) that the man is not actually sane, that there is something mentally wrong with him. Intellectually, I don't think the guy is actually stupid (all evidence---including a limited vocabulary and the use of his own made-up word "bigly" ad nauseum---to the contrary), but he is clearly sick ...more

I read this book in one day and could not put it down. I already support Trump for president, but this book put all of the reasons why into clear focus. Anyone whose opinion of Trump is based solely on what is reported in the mainstream media needs to read this book. Hear from the horse's mouth what Donald Trump stands for and what he can do to get this country headed in the right direction. This book addresses where he stands on all of the issues, it is written very clearly, and I did not get b ...more
Dear Americans,

it has become quite clear by now that you are not the fan of your current President (fact) who enjoys doing his Presidency through Twitter feed (fact) albeit he is not the first social media fueled President or politician of our time.

Still, I (wrongly) expect the American people to be a little more wiser and brain cell filled than cheering of your President's (fact) Twitter being deactivated by some sensitive worker for whopping 11 minutes.

I believe all politicians are liars and more concerned about their own careers than they are about their supporters, so I find reading these types of books a waste of time. I also generally lean to the left politically, although my views on certain issues may be considered centrist, or even right.

So I walked out of the library quietly, not making any eye contact with anyone, with this book surreptitiously tucked away in my jacket. When I got to my car, I tucked it under

I wasn't close enough to the US election to be able to understand exactly what happened and why: why did so few people vote, why did so many women apparently support Trump?

When you live outside the US and you look at the red and blue map of the states, you have to wonder how the Democrats could ever win any election. There's just so much red on that map.

Observed from afar, this election for many voters seems to have been a referendum on free trade and globalisation.

Free trade was a policy promot

WOW! Just Wow! What an incredible book! This is a must read and should be required reading in all colleges! I'm a 32 year old male ,Hispanic Democrat, who was leaning toward voting for Trump because I already knew about his great success. It's a fact: Anything Trump touches turns to gold! Imagine if he could do the same for America! After reading this book I'm 100% convinced Mr.Trump is what this country desperately needs. We cant have anymore dynasties with the Bush and Clinton Families. We nee ...more

This book is a joke. It is foremost a narcissistic biography on how great Donald Trump is (all his major achievements are included as an appendix). That's the bulk of the book. The rest of the book is about how bad things have gotten. Then there is a couple of phrases where Trump injects his "politics", that is, Trump's ideas on how to counter the bad things. These ideas are offered without any analysis or rationale at all. The only reason for why the ideas should be implemented is that Donald T ...more

"It’s time to bring America back to its rightful owners"

So... the Native Americans, then?

Ok mà, ok mà @@

Túm tắt lại mấy ý chính của anh Trump:

- Anh rất rất rất là giầu. Hồi trước người ta tưởng anh giầu sơ sơ, ai dè anh giầu thiệt là giầu :))

- Anh giầu thế cho nên anh hông cần vận động tài trợ, anh tranh cử bằng tiền của anh. Thế nên anh muốn gì thì anh làm nấy, chẳng phụ thuộc vào ai cả, cũng chẳng sợ ai cả.

- Anh kinh doanh giỏi nên anh nghĩ chắc mình làm chính trị thì cũng oách không kém.

- Anh bảo bọn chính trị chuyên nghiệp không có hiểu biết về kinh tế, và rặt là một lũ đạo đức

Trump Makes the Sale to Skeptics

I read this in two days. It's fairly short, and language is conversational, in fact I could imagine Trump's voice as I read it. So it's an easy read. But it's not a lightweight book. In 170 pages Trump is able to make the case that America is in a deep mess and that he, alone among the presidential field, is the one person uniquely qualified to lead the country back to greatness.

This book, says Trump, is designed to give the reader a better understanding of him an

Trump tells it like it is clearing the air that the media has clouded. He speaks of how America can be great again and how we can achieve it and it was tremendous.

I enjoyed this book because it shows his real views and what he says in writing.

I didn't like how it could've been longer but its one of those campaign books.

I would recommend this book to anyone who questions him and his morals or views or any one who believes in him.

A must read!

A great perspective on the real Trump; what he believes and what he will accomplish as President of the United States. Because I've read The Art Of The Deal and others of his books, as well as studied all of his campaign speeches, I found some of the material redundant. But to the book's credit, the repeated information is far more detailed and comprehensive.

Maybe most of the Americans knew trump well as a successful businessman even before declaring his presidential candidacy. As a citizen of a country in the other part of the world, I get to read this book to know who is the real trump? during the electoral competition, I was aware of what the media wants us to know about trump. For me, That wasn't enough. So I decided i want to judge for myself.

Recommends it for: all those planning to vote
In 2008 I caucused in Colorado for Barack Obama. I was a delegate representing the Democrats of Larimer county. I voted for President Obama again in 2012. I just switched (January 4, 2016) my party affiliation so as I could caucus for Mr. Trump in 2016. This book, as Trump says on the jacket, is: “my blueprint for how to Make America Great Again.” It is exactly that. The book is a detailed, 40,000 word, discussion on what and how Mr. Trump plans to do that, why it needs doing, and why he is uniq ...more

Worst political book I have ever read, hands down. It is written for a third grade reading level, it contains a lot of disturbing statements about people of other races and religions, and it frighteningly alludes to loyalty, the consequences for perceived disloyalty, and the militarization of our police force. It also proposes turning our military into a band of mercenaries to be rented out to whoever can pay for them. If you can get through it, I encourage you to try because knowing one's enemy ...more

IИDECLIИE has put up some statues of Donald Trump in his birthday suit in New York, Los Angeles, and San Fransisco.

This one was placed right in the center of Union Square Park, New York and people took selfies…

… before he was removed.

If only it were that easy!

[pictures taken from this gallery; sources: above: REUTERS, below: AFP]

Update 9/2/16
The statues were destroyed :(
Except for one :)
And it could be yours! Julien's auction the last Naked Donald Trump, and this is what it looks
A self mastabatory masterclass.

I don't think a page goes by without Trump tickling his taint and ejaculating a metric shit tonne of superlatives onto his chest.

Funny thing is - it's hard to disagree with what he says.

I spent almost an hour writing a long review, but I pressed something on my phone and it disappeared. So, I'm just going to piece a few thoughts together, very quickly as I'm ready to nod off for the night.

I'm not a fan of D J Trump.

This book reads pretty much exactly how Trump speaks (with a monosyllabic vocabulary, declarative sentences, grandiose statements and bold declarations of his wealth). All this leads me to believe that Trump "wrote" this book inasmuch as he dictated and someone trans
So as you may guess from the title, this is Donald Trump's "Here's How" on his plans for the United States of America. The book was published on November 3, 2015; one year and a few days before the Election Day. So basically Trump used this book as a way to spread his ideas and plans for the future of America and try to get more supporters.

Decided to read this because, know your enemy, right? Well, little here I didn't know. Much meglomaniacal ranting and nonsensical generalization. Trump spends more time telling us how great and rich he is than outlining any specific policies. If we you like bluster, arrogance, and posturing, Trump's your man.

I read this for a US election seminar I'm planning to take this fall semester. I want to use Trump's own words when discussing how damn ridiculous he is.
He is going to need a SIMS money code for making all of these things happen.
Also, he probably tells at least 20 times that he is rich and powerful and all that jazz.

I collected a lot of quotes from this one - if someone is interested in reading those, I can post them here. Let me know! I am not writing a normal review for this one.
