Decreasing. Never like or trusted the man. He is too full of himself. The way he plays on the fears and hatred in the nation is disgusting.

Decreased. I can't stand bullies, blowhards or conceit, but I support his cause & his desire to make positive changes & do so very quickly, so If I cannot vote for Bernie, I will support Trump 2000%.

Before he ran it was at a 0, or neutral. Now it's about at -110 out of -100.

This dudes ego is scary. Too unstable for me. But the fact that so many people are willing to vote for him should be a huge wake up call. Middle America is pissed. The village idiots in DC better wake up because they have about pushed the liberal agenda and PC-mess beyond the tolerance level of most folks.

I don't trust him.

At best he is a business man who's opinion will change with the publics. If the Dems ever control the congress he'll flip parties instantly .

At worst he's a secret dem. just about every stupid thing he has said is the kind of lies democrats force feed their followers about what republicans want, he clearly has no idea what we really want. Freedom, justice, and compassion.

Trump said he had $200 million in 1974, much of it from his father. Check the math. If he'd put that money into an S&P 500 Index Fund in 1974, he'd have significantly more money than he has today. He's not a great businessman.

AmericanWolf For the Benefit of All

His proposals include:

• Breaking free trade deals like NAFTA and the TPP
• Banning all Muslim immigration
• Initiating a trade war with China
• Building a wall along the Mexican border
• Acting as a neutral mediator in Israeli-Palestinian relations
• Escalating tensions in the South China Sea (nuclear weapons)
• Scaling back involvement with NATO and other international organizations

...among others. Not to mention the dangerous rhetoric, the divisiveness, and the immaturity we've seen from him throughout his campaign. He has zero political experience and is completely ignorant on foreign policy. He has been roundly criticized by the global community, including many of our closest allies.

Gilgamesh muh wage gap

He wants to ban all Muslim immigration because ISIS has said that they will imbed terrorists inside those immigrants. He wants to build a wall to help stop illegal immigration, and just so you know Mexico has a wall all along their southern border but we don't consider them racist. The Chinese are the ones escalating tensions be said they are slowly expanding their territory by building man made islands further and further out to sea. He wants to reduce involvement with NATO mainly because we are the country that pays for 75% of NATO's budget, we send the most troops and what do we get? Nothing in return. In conclusion Donald trump wants to bring jobs back to America and he wants our allies to protect themselves without our help. The only reason why so many people hate him is because the media blows up and manipulates even the tiniest thing he says. So take everything you hear with a grain of salt.👌🏻

AmericanWolf For the Benefit of All
04/19/16 3:13 am

He's trying to bring first-world jobs back to a fully developed, third-world economy. His version of strong isolationism would only hurt our allies and the stability we are responsible for protecting in today's world. The Mexico wall is a bad idea because of the cost and the implications, not racism (though the proposed actions against Muslims aren't so far from the way we treated Japanese-Americans during WW2). I'm fully aware of the situation in the SC Sea; Trump's proposals thus far would only make things worse than they already are. It's incredibly short-sighted to argue we get nothing from NATO, we depend on our alliances to operate effectively in other parts of the world.

I don't care about the media. They don't matter. What does matter is his actual policy proposals, his despicable personality, and how uninformed he is on so many issues, especially international affairs.
