Which ultimately didn’t work out Donald invested $70,000 to co-produce a Broadway comedy, which was never realized Trump’s  career began at his father’s company. He borrowed  one  or two million from his father to start his real estate business in the middle class housing market in Brooklyn and Queens Trump’s casino and hotel business underwent bankruptcy five times between 1991 to 2014, though they could still operate The owners settled their accounts with investors, but they went through debt collection and the sale of assets on November 2nd, 1992. Another one of Trump’s hotels filed for bankruptcy, and he lost 49% stake in the luxury hotel to Clickbank by 1994 the hotel became insolvent.


Because of the recession, he could not make the loan payments. His debt accrued with his businesses going through bankruptcy, and the bondholders lost a lot of money that added up to millions of dollars., But he decided to restructure his debt to avoid having  to go to court by 1994, Trump had eliminated a large portion of his personal debt of  $900 million.  Donald started to reduce his business debt.

Trump has gained the support of the working class because they think  the country has sold out to big corporations for  profit. About 33 percent of noncollege educated voters  favor the Democrats while  64 percent of non-college working class voters support the Republicans.


Why? Because Donald Trump had been getting the support of the non-college educated working class to begin with It started with the decline of white working class support for Democrats in the 1960s with the rise of counterculture and the popular TV ‘70s TV show  “Family.”  The show was about traditional conservative blue collar values shared by the so-called “Reagan Democrats,” who  dissented the New Deal coalition in the 1990s. They were won back during Bill Clinton’s tenure in his campaign for tough love for Social Security recipients and the death penalty.


With most blue collar jobs being outsourced  overseas, companies could cut cost in the long run and make more money for shareholders. Trump advocates for free trade and social entitlements like Medicare and Social Security. Without question, whites without a college degree and fewer employment prospects would be more opposed to cutting welfare.                                                      .Donald_Trump_by_Gage_Skidmore_4.jpg


Trump has said that he believes in traditional marriage between a man and a woman. He spearheads a lot of Right Wing tenets putting out the message that the nation is in decline and has lost the moral high ground. Trump is not only an outsider, but more in line with the conservative movement, including John Birch Society. That corner of the radical right believes in limited government and is more anti-communists than the Grand Old Party. There is a close relationship between the Birchers and Trump’s views. They held positions in Goldwater’s campaign in 1964. However, there are some Republican newspapers and Republican  donors  that support Hillary Clinton.


Trump  has  already established a third party within the mainstream GOP. In response to the fact that Grand Old Party  has became more liberal and has lost touch with its base. Back in the 1960s, the Republican Party feared Barry Goldwater and viewed him as an instigator that was splitting the party apart. Goldwater lost the campaign  against  the conservative Republican legislators in his own party, who were tainted by association with him. This helped the New Deal Democrats enact the Great Society that scares  conservatives today, although his defeat led to Ronald Reagan’s election What is different this time is that Goldwater in 1964 and McCarthy in 1954 are still part of the GOP’s modern history and is the third party waiting to be heard.


What  are Trump’s opinions on certain issues in the 2016 presidential race?. He maintains his principles on most issues and problems facing this country. One issue which attracts a lot of attention is Trump’s controversial views on immigration.


[Quote:“People realize the problem we have in this country with illegal immigration. It’s going to be solved. It’s going to be fixed.” Is Trump right? he system is broken. We have to find a solution to this very complex situation It is true the U.S. has become a dumping ground for criminals and smugglers, who profit by smuggling contraband into the U.S. through the use of human trafficking and  by the support of corrupt South American governments.


Here are a few of Trump’s quotes on illegal immigration:


“I will build a great wall. “Nobody builds walls better than me, believe me. And I’II build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” Donald Trump’s Best Quotes-page 32

Registering Islamic people sympathized with Islamist who have inflicted the Muslim community in a database is only a temporary solution.  A similar problem faced  Europe with its migration  crisis that has backfired  on the continent [particularly Germany]  by having an open door policy that led to the terrorist attacks in Paris and Belgium. The Islamist groups have a foothold in Europe, just like the Roman Empire in its decline faced  barbarians at the gate. This will mean the end of the European Union as we know it.
