Sounds like a job-killer.

I'm sure Donald Trump could jump start the economy as president by employing millions to labour on his pharaonic pyramid (due for completion in term 6.5). It's no more disconnected from reality than most of what I hear actual supposed presidential aspirants, in America, in 2015, say.

The labor force participation rate is down for several reasons. The babyboomers are retiring plus there are many people that were never able to get back into the workforce after losing their jobs during Obama's first term.
If the labor force participation rate were still as high as it was in 2008, the unemployment rate would be 10%. Its still more of an employers job market than an employees job market at the moment.

When demand for a product or service the business provides increases, the business can afford to expand and add more workers. The real job creator is the consumer, not the business.

Employers need the money to pay their employees with before the employees can go spend that money on consumer goods.

Where do you think Employers get the money? The consumer. The business would not exist without the consumer. The business was built to meet demand that already existed from the consumer. The consumer comes first, then the business to satisfy their demand and make a profit from it.

Employers will pocket that money before they ever pay employees more.

I guess Donald Trump's running for president is this year's equivalent of his reality TV show, he gets to be in the news, on TV, essentially all over media and social media. I hate to say it but im actually sort of looking forward to the GOP debates this time with him in it. Who knows what horrible things he will say on stage!

I don't think he could actually get the nomination, surely America is smarter than that, but it will be entertaining.

The 1% conspiracy theorist in me says he's in it to distract the GOP voting base into being into him and hating the other fellow, and then dropping out just in time for hatred to be internal from his supporters.

i actually wonder. i think that Trump is enough of a world class egomaniac to believe that he actually knows more and would do a better job than anybody else. he's like a walking/talking comments section on a conservative website.

he might be totally sincere. he really believes he should be the president of the United States and only he can make things better.

better for Donald Trump.

As disturbing as Donald is, I find his new fanatics to be even more disturbing. If I see another 'Trump is just telling the truth' post in my Facebook feed I might explode. How is ignorance so fucking mainstream in 2015?!?!

The good news is, if Donald is dead serious about running for president and ultimately loses the Republican bid and is crazy enough to jump on an independent ticket... he'll effectively become Ross Perot 2.0 and only be stealing votes from the crazy crowd that otherwise would've voted with the Repubes. Not that Perot actually cost Bush the election, but Trump sure as hell would cost the Repubes the election.

Unfortunately, he's nothing like Ross Perot. God, I love me some Ross Perot.

They are both gifts to the comedy gods. Jon Stewart is having a good week.

Somewhere in all of the rants i would imagine that Trump has some ideas that might actually make some sense or at least sound good. I don't know, it's hard for them to really stand out between the immigration stuff and the ISIS solutions (bombing Iraqi oil fields), etc.

Make no mistake though, it's the crazy stuff that not only gets people's attention, but it's the bombastic statements that have the Cruz/Santorum crowd switching clown cars to the Trump traveling circus.

Unfortunately Bill Maher is on summer hiatus for a couple of more weeks, i do look forward to his 'new rules' segment when he returns. And these GOP debates are going to be GOLD.

Trump has truly shown how much of a complete asshole he is. His entertainment factor is now being overshadowed by his racist/assholism. What a waste...
