  1. I just viewed a great documentary on Donald. It was very thorough and didn’t miss a beat on how Trump is really an “All Talk and Boastful” individual and makes his deals to get things done in back rooms with bought off politicians.The dollar stops with him and those who work FOR him are paid very little and sometimes not at all. Many time they have had to sue him to get what is owed. For the most part it has been his Father and his Ex-wife who were the brains behind Trump. In my opinion he is not even note worthy of my time that I have take to write this small bit but I feel others should be warned. Seek and you shall find and the Truth will set you free.
