So true. I've read dozens of books about him. The universal

conclusion is that he's a MORON without the slightest clue how to make deals. He cheats, lies, and fumbles his way through life and business, letting others take the fall when he screws it all up. It's no wonder that reputable banks won't deal with or finance him and haven't for nearly 3 decades, if not more. Especially after his colossal flops in the Casino industry where he took down four of them through his incompetence, greed, and ego, leaving banks, investors, and other businesses to take the fall for him.

According to several former employees and business partners, he makes decisions without an OUNCE of knowledge or understanding for the business or the needs of those he is dealing with. By using blatant deception and heavy-handed manipulation, he dominates "little people" who cannot afford to fight back. In deals with REAL deal-makers, he typically pays FULL PRICE.

His book, "The Art of the Deal" co-author, Tony Schwartz, (who actually wrote every single word of it) describes his actual deal-making philosophy as "It was a binary, zero-sum choice for him: You either dominated or you submitted. You either created and exploited fear, or you succumbed to it.

In countless conversations, he made clear to me that he treated every encounter as a contest he had to win, because the only other option from his perspective was to lose, and that was the equivalent of obliteration. Many of the deals in “The Art of the Deal” were massive failures — among them the casinos he owned and the launch of a league to rival the National Football League — but Trump had me describe each of them as a huge success."

IOW, he's a complete FRAUD.

        ...when you're talking an area he knows a LITTLE about, real estate. It's sooo much worse when talking about something he knows almost nothing about, being President. You're read dozens of books... more
