    More and more I've gotten the believe that Trump seriously does not want the job. Otherwise he would act differently.

    He's doing exactly as they do on the Bachelor; just to see how far he can get. (and of course it helps him to get "contacts" to enrich him a bit more) He must know by now that the job is actually determined by others on what to do and say and is just like in prison; you are no longer free to do what you want and be surrounded all day and night by people who tell you what to do. Since he's an ego tripper then he'll feels not in his element where he's used too. The shock will kill him.

    Thus democrats don't fear he'll not make it to the end.

    Dutch, Kinda makes it look like a Trump/Clinton conspiracy to make Hillary president. Look how easily Hillary shifted her campaign to the left to involve more progressives and Bernie supporters. At the same time when Hillary got the nomination Trump shifted his campaign to the more stupid. Trump is exaggerating the birther attack to the extreme with the "Obama started ISIS" attack. Like guaranteeing the presidency to Hillary. His my way or the highway proclamation and taking a long vacation if he loses is not what a candidate says at the start of the most important part of the campaign. Does he really want to be President???

    Again one of his Casino's is going bankrupt per September 1st; 1200 people will loose their job. Thus he's an real job creator. However Hillary has not caught on to this; neither that we did not leave Iraq because we wanted too, but an sovereign country ( which we don't own) told us to leave. The ridiculous mindset in this country is that we think we can just invade anyone and act like we own the place. It is time our leaders go back to school and learn that the rest of the world does not have to dance to the liking of the US.

    Dutch -- It certainly appears that you are right. Donald Trump doesn't want the job. Perhaps he wasn't counting on the fact that his band of followers were really that stupid. So he deliberately makes more and more outrageous things and his followers still salute him...you know the salute I'm talking about.

    Sam Stein of the Huffington Post raises the same question: GOP Operatives Aren’t So Sure That Trump Even Wants To Win

    "What used to be a playful question tossed around by Republican operatives about Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is now being taken far more seriously: Is it possible that he is trying to lose?

    “I think he has psychologically collapsed and is both consciously and unconsciously looking for an exit,” said Rick Wilson, a longtime GOP operative who rarely holds back in his disdain for Trump.

    “It’s either that [he’s trying to lose] or it’s complete and utter incompetence in every facet of his campaign,” said Brian Walsh, another veteran Republican hand and Trump critic. “When you look at how he’s conducting every aspect of the campaign it seems entirely fair to ask if he’s purposefully trying to lose because the only alternative answer is complete arrogance and incompetence. And I’m not ruling out complete arrogance and incompetence.”

    Nothing else seems to make sense. But what is his real motive for wanting to lose? Possibly to not have to disclose his income and wealth? Or just not wanting to take on the enormous responsibilities of the job, realizing that he's not up to the job.

    Schmidt, it is quite simple; he does it only for his own ego, to prove for himself that he's "superman"; he's got nothing to loose and just keeps on making money with his buildings and have people bow to him. He just wants the attention to boost his inferiority complex.

    He is not a politician. He is a for profit negotiator. Politicians are non profit negotiators. He is faced with the prospect of giving his time away. Big change.

    The latest: Trump has changed his tune completely; all of a sudden he cares about the "blacks" in inner cities etc. Promises them jobs with higher pay!! and education, healthcare, better police protection etc. you name it. Mr. Chameleon; last night he sounded like Bernie.

    Did he all of a sudden become an Democrat? But it looked more like the Hitler show, because that guy promised Germany the same; result known.

    What is happening here; I was flabbergasted; a repainted Titanic?

    He has handlers who are paid to put in front of him the things voters want to hear. It is nothing that he believes at all but he's "playing the game". I heard the part about representing the blacks last night. This from the same man who a month ago at a rally said there's my African American there (token)(slavery).

    "He has handlers who are paid to put in front of him the things voters want to hear. "

    Like the pictures of Trump in suit and tie holding utensild sitting at a properly set table eating KFC and McDonalds with the cardboard packaging on the table. Even if he did eat the stuff his staff wouldn't let the packaging on the table.

    Trump is nothing more than a self-serving reality show. He is a master of this and his ignorant supporters eat it up. What does he really believe or think? Anything that will get his mug or name notoriety. Trumpy has no beliefs at all, other than in himself.

    Mr. Titanic" appointed new "leader(s)" one of them is even more drastic than Trump himself and the media calls him an "street fighter"; the other is an pinhead woman who already was there and now got promoted . I get the feeling that Trump absolutely does not want to follow an "presidential attitude" but wants it only his way; the hell with the GOP leaders etc. I guess it won't be long till everything blows up or gets more ridiculous with these two promotions in the "circus". It is going to be lots of fun from now onwards to November.

    I guess I got it wrong; on the latest speech he was on an prompter and apologized for his past "wrong" words. What happened here? Has he become a "priest"? I guess his V.P. took him to the Catholic church and he must have liked the gold plated statutes. I just wonder how long he will be able to keep up this charade.

    He's an obvious asshole/jerk. The apology was because his handlers say.... this will make people like you more. It will get you more votes in the polling. That is the ONLY reason he would ever apologize. If there was something in it for him / his gain. Loser.

    The latest; Mr.Titanic handed out "packages" ( looked like "back to school" crayons etc.) in flooded Louisiana together with his holiness Mr. V.P. It was staged such way it made him look ridiculous. Next step is cuddling "babies" I guess.

    If people fall for this; then indeed I will admit that this is the most stupid country in the world; If the "polls" move in his direction, then people with some brains left should look for an house in Canada.

    I heard him say something like "you are going to be okay or its going to be alright". Whatever he said it was callous and cruel. He leaves and the people are no better off. Crowning achievement of his campaign is telling black people that they have it bad so what do they have to lose voting for Trump. The comparative of bad is not better and best. It is worse and worst. I agree with Hillary that it was an ignorant remark. In fact the worse and worst is guaranteed by his promise to keep USAmerican wages low to compete with foreign labor. I wonder why he is not called on the low wages promise because he continually promises good wages.
