    I don't like him for what he did to the contractors in Atlantic City with his bankruptcies. Stiffing people and then sitting back with that smug attitude of the wealthy.
    I also don't like that he is similar to Christie. More BS, more attitude and just plain arrogance.
    Just another clown on the overcrowded bus.

    I have delivered to many of his jobsites in the New York area and as far as I know they were all union jobs.. I can say that he is a little wacky to a point but if you look at what he "says" he is gonna do there really isn't anything that I don't like.. With that said if it came down to Bernie or Donald I would vote for Bernie.. if it came down to Hillary or the Donald,I would vote for Trump unless there is another candidate that looks good that is running independent ..

    A lot has been said about what he said about the illegal Mexicans that are here.. This might be one of those that he was talking about.. No one has to be a rocket scientist to figure out what he meant..

    San Francisco: No 'legal basis' to hold shooting suspect

    Francisco Sanchez has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said Friday. He was arrested about an hour after Wednesday's seemingly random slaying of Kathryn Steinle at Pier 14 — one of the busiest attractions in the city.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had turned Sanchez over to San Francisco police March 26 on an outstanding drug warrant, said agency spokeswoman Virginia Kice.

    Kice said ICE issued a detainer for Sanchez in March. She said the detainer was not honored.

    I watched Trump's spiel when he announced, and have to say I loved what he had to say about the economy and free trade. When have you ever heard a Republican talk about bringing money back to the USA and strengthening Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid? I agree he went off the deep end with his comments on immigration, which makes me believe he's not serious about being President. As far as the Confederate Flag, how anybody can say a symbol of a treasonous act centered around the enslavement of another race of people is just celebrating my "pride and heritage" is something I can't understand.

    The "confederate " flag as we know it was not the South's National flag.. It was the battle flag of the Nothern Virginia Army.. Where in history or in any records does it state that is was a flag about enslavement.. In my "Irish " heritage I have read about the "enslavement" of millions of Irish and being sold in America.. Does that mean that I should despise the American flag.. No it does not..Or how about the Native Americans?? History is in the past and we all should leave it there.. I am so tired of "Political" correctness.. I have many many relatives in the south and some of flown their confederate flag proudly.. This subject is being led by the liberal media.. It is all about "ratings"... Happy Fourth!!!

    No, maybe you should despise the early colonial flags of the New World or the British flag. You of course make excellent points no doubt. We'll have to agree to disagree I guess.

    In this interview on Fox news Trump stands behind what he earlier said but this time it seems he was a little better with the words "illegal immigration..

    Trump: I'm America's 'whipping post' | TheHill

    Francisco Sanchez, the alleged shooter, was released from jail four months ago instead of being transferred into federal immigration officials’ custody.

    He is an undocumented immigrant who has been deported to Mexico five times.

    Sanchez also has seven prior felony convictions, four of which are for drug charges.

    B. It's weird how something you've seen all your life radically changes when someone puts a new take on it, and squaks loud enough. I've never seen that flag as something other than just another flag, but I can understand how you could put a racist slant on it, however about 3 or 4 dots need to be connected to get there.

    C. I've broken my own personal rule to stay out of this forum, as it has caused some of the biggest problems for this website in general.
    I'M OUT<<<General Sherman on his horse
    What an HONEST,HEARTFELT and INSIGHTFUL comment.I can FEEL your STRUGGLE and I Thank You for that.Life is a Funny Bird,is it not.PERSPECTIVE would be the key word here.You've always seen that flag as JUST ANOTHER FLAG,but to Thousands upon Thousands of others,that flag is a Deeply Offensive Symbol of a Brutally Oppressive Past.Sometimes in Life,a MOMENTS INSIGHT is Worth a Life Experience.And believe me,I've learned that the HARD WAY.
    I don't know what happened in the past,nor do I care.I'am quite sure most if not all of us on this Web-Site would WELCOME your Commentary.It seems you have MUCH TO GIVE!!!!! Think about it and Be Well my Friend!!
