Downing says . . . I tend to agree with his comments on President Obama. We are still stuck in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we seem to be partly in Libya and partly not in Libya. I am not sure that we have a plan as far as Libya is concenred. Our economy is not improving and I am afraid that inflation is about to shoot through the roof. Gasoline prices are rising and close to $4 a gallon and not slowing down.

As for Mr. Trump, I am not sure how he would do as president. He is a very impressive business person but has no experience running a state, county or nation. His solutions are very easy to state and much more difficult to implement.

By the way, I take offense at his comment about "spending like drunken sailors." I am a retired sailor and that bothers me.

Lauren...I do agree with some of the comments made toward President Obama. However, I do not think that all of the blame should be put on him. I think that our country is falling some, but I feel as though it will come up with time. Donald Trump should stay as a professional businessman. I would not want him to become President. Stick to the Apprentice.

Robbie says.. I think he should run for president. I beleive he would be a very good president. He has the money to run for the campains and everything else they have to do. If he wants to run for it then he should.

I agree with Trumps comment about our government. Prices for things are outrages, and things are not improving.I don’t know how Trump would do as a president.

Madi.. I do agree with some of the comments Trump made about President Obama. I really don't think Trump would make a good President because I think that he is too full of himself and he seems really rude. Part of me thinks that our country is going to hell because of all the struggles people are going threw and all the wars and everything.

Jonathan says... He's right Obama needs to show a birth certificate showing he was born here. I agree with Donald Trump. Do I think he would be a good president yes and no. He could get this economy and government straight but then again he could end up firing everybody.

Sheron says… I think Donald Trump for president is a bad idea. I think our country is doing a great job fixing problems…somewhat. I think he’s in it for the power.

Sarah said...

I agree with a few of Trumps comments but I'm not positive that he'd make a good president. His business experience would help him a little bit but he should probably run for a smaller political office first. If he was elected, it would probably be because he's a celebrity.

Ashley says... I do agree with his comments about Obama. The reason why is when he was first elected he was going to get the troops home and that was a lie, becuase their still there. Our country is falling apart every second of the day. Gas is going up and people can't afford it and if it goes up more than what it is now in the summer, we all going to be in trouble. The reason he probably thinks the country is going down hill because no one can get anything straight. Everyone is fightning and people not agreeing. Donald Trump is like the richest man and he can say anything and still be fine. He has good comments on most stuff but he needs to watch his mouth on some things he says in public. I wouldn't think he would run to be president but he does have ideas of how our country is but everyone has their own ideas of how it should run!

i agree weith him when he says the country is going tohell. Our governemt is going down the drain. And I believe that they shouldn't cut the pay for military soliders. They go war and fight for us, they deserve everything they have. Even more. Its dumb that they can get deployed and start fighting, then the government wants to take their money away from them. And I think that Donald Trump could make a good presidnet, but I don't think that he would be able to handle the responsibilities of being president.

Destiny saids...Everybody has been on Obama back lately and think its not fair. Yes, he made a mistake but I think his is really trying to do something, he just got everybody in his ear spitting words and saying that his not born as an american.He has to much on his plate.

Now Trump...I defianly think that he should not run for president. I think he is going to embarrass himself.

Matt: I'm not entirely sure what to think about this guy. All of what he is saying makes sense, but will he actually be able to employ any of his big talk into presidency? Would he really be any better than the current president? That's where the question lies. He IS an intelligent man and he knows about what he is talking about. But I feel that he may not be the BEST candidate to have. But, then again I could be wrong. I mean, we once had an actor go into the oval office and he did quite a good job while he was in there. Trump is right when he says that the nation is going down the toilet, but I do not feel that the president is fully to blame because of that, and I feel that he needs to get off of the whole "Obama doesn't have a birth certificate" issue. He is president now, and no amount of digging is going to change that. If he wants to be president, he needs to find an issue in which he can actually base himself and drive that point forward. Not just stating how we are currently in a bad situation. But, like I said, I could be wrong about Trump. Maybe he really DOES have what it takes.

LaKendra... I don't think he was out of line for what he said because that's just how he feels. I realy don't think that he would be a good president at all. To me,he does not come off as someone who would be good for running our country. Personaly, I don't think he comes off as a good person overall.

Tee: I was very surprised with Donald Trump's interview. I was expecting him to be just sort of toying around with the idea of running for office, but it seems like he has pretty strong opinions and actually wants to make a change. However, I don't agree with everything he said. It seemed like he was on the verge of whining about Obama's birth certificate. If you ask me, someone should focus on their own campaign rather than mudslinging if they truly want to run the country. I don't have too much of an opinion involving the whole birth certificate issue, but focus on improving the country, not on trying to wreck your opponents. Either way, whether you like it or not, Obama is president now, so quit crying about it and work on getting yourself into office if you TRULY want to change it. I don't know if he'd make a good president, and I think America may have some problems but is still the best place to live in the world in regards to government.

Cadeja say’s: I do believe some in what Trump was saying but for somebody to be president takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Our president is doing what he can for his country but putting the blame all on him is wrong. Obama is not the one that has gotten us in the situation that we are in right now. We got our self into this situation and it is up to us to make a change as people of this country. Now, by Obama being our president may have a little to do with the troubles we are facing today but he is the one who runs the United States of America and he is the one who we look up to with keeping us together, but, he can’t do that if we don’t try to help ourselves to. I do not think that our country is going to hell but I do think that if we do not hurry up and make a come back and get it together that our country will be on its way there but I have hope and our country will be fine.

Yes, I think he was out of line when speaking about Obama. He was going on bout stuff that wasn't really that serious. No, I don't think he will be a good president. I don't think so because he is to big headed. Whatever is going to happen to this country is going to happen wheather Obama or Trump or whoever is president thats how I feel.

Jake The Snake said...

I agree with Donald Trump, that Obama has done nothing good and we could do better with someone else. I don't think he was out of line; I think he was just speaking the truth. I think he'll make a good president, because he is a successful business man already, and he knows how to make good decisions. I think our country can do better. We are in so much debt and it seems that we are falling apart.

Trump can say whatever he pleases, it’s his constitutional right. I agree with what he said about Obama. His presidency has been terrible and he has hardly kept his promises. Trump has my vote because he can and will get the job done regardless. This country has gone to hell; what kind of president and congress lets the government shut down.

I was impressed with his interview. I do agree with Trump, he's right this country is going to hell if we don't hurry up and do something. I think that he might be a good president because he seems to know what he is talking about. I think that if he became president that we wouldn't be in the situation that we are in now.

I think if Trump runs for president he is going to win. He is a great business man. Our government runs similar to that of a corporation, and Trump has a lot of experience doing so. One of two things will happen if Trump becomes president. 1) He'll end up buying China, or 2) He could end up selling us to China. He is obviously a very intelligent man and knows how to run things. If I had to put my faith in someone it would be him. However, in my opinion democracy is not all it's cracked up to be. Spreading power so thin just makes it useless. All we have now is a bunch of bickering old losers. That is very obvious due to our government's shutdown. This is freaking embarrassing!!!!!

Trump's interview was long but right to the point. I believe that the world is going down through the tubes. Were told we have History so that it dose not repeat its self, However look at the world and what its going through at this very moment. Trump was not out of line with what he said. He dose make it seem like he really cares and he seems really ticked about whats going on. I think he would be a good president because he seems to care a lot about the USA. However he also made it seem like we were in compotition with the world and the most important thing is that the USA is at the top..
