And yet...
Trump Tower Was Built on Undocumented Immigrants’ Backs
‘I Can Make Mistakes’
Mr. Trump, who is expected to testify at the trial, said he had resisted efforts to settle the case out of court. ''It would be cheaper, but on principle I won't,'' he said. ''We did nothing wrong.'' (1998)
The brash brawler settled in 1999...

Megyn Kelly has cost Fox millions in ad revenue but look at why Fox are so hostile to Trump and yet softball Marco Rubio.

The Anti-Trump Network: Fox News Money Flows into Open Borders Group

The announcement from Donald Trump’s campaign that the Republican frontrunner will “definitely not” partake in Thursday night’s Fox News debate has sent shock waves throughout the nation’s political scene.

At a press event Tuesday evening, Trump seemed to cite disparate treatment from the network as his reasoning for not participating. “What’s wrong over there, something’s wrong,” Trump said of the “games” Roger Ailes and the network are “playing.”

In asking the question of “what’s wrong over there?” Trump has shined a spotlight on one of Washington’s best kept secrets: namely, Fox’s role via its founder Rupert Murdoch in pushing an open borders agenda. The Trump campaign is a direct threat to Murdoch’s efforts to open America’s borders. Well-concealed from virtually all reporting on Fox’s treatment of Trump is the fact that Murdoch is the co-chair of what is arguably one of the most powerful immigration lobbying firms in country, the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE).

In addition to blanketing the country, media, and politicians with literature, advertisements, and a barrage of lobbyists pushing for open border immigration policies, the Partnership for A New American Economy (PNAE) was a prime lobbyist for one of the biggest open borders pushes in American history: Sen. Marco Rubio’s 2013 Gang of Eight immigration bill.

While Donald Trump has pledged to deport those illegally residing in the country and temporarily pause Muslim migration, Rubio’s immigration bill would have granted immediate amnesty and eventual citizenship to millions of illegal aliens, it would have doubled the annual admission of foreign workers, and it would have dispensed 33 million green cards to foreign nationals in the span of a single decade despite current record immigration levels.

While Megyn Kelly made headlines with her heated questioning of Donald Trump, not one of the Fox News anchors asked Rubio in the first Fox News debate about his signature piece of legislation, which Murdoch’s immigration lobbying firm had endorsed. Instead, they lobbed Rubio a series of softballs, such as asking Rubio if he could put God and veterans in the same sentence.

The difference is in stated intent and somewhat in the reaction of the mob.

There have been many civilian casualties (not necessarily directly related to 'terrorists') that were simply marked up as collateral damage (which is likely to create more terrorists).

Here the game is notched up explicitly to another level. Collective punishment.

We're in a paradigm shift and Trump is no doubt the most in touch with the real world viable candidate we've had in my memory.  Real Estate is a whole different world in which few understand all the complexities involved.  Having listened extensively to Trump since he started out, his language, terminology and phrasing was just exactly what you would here on any construction site, big or small.  Trump can, not could, have an intelligent meaningful conversation with a guy using a shovel just as easily as someone in a board room, in front of a city council trying to get zoning changed or whatever.  He is authentic.  You can't fake trade talk, the kind heard on a job site.  But I grew up in the business as a kid, so my perceptions will vary from those whose closest encounter to a hammer is a picture on Lowe's website.

The developer side of Trump is what makes his whole approach to everything different than from a legislator, banker, governor or industrialist.  A real estate developer must identify a need and provide a solution or have a vision and build it with bricks and mortar.  They must sell it as in pitch it, build it and deliver the goods.  Priorities and budgets must be set and kept.  Excuses don't work.  A developer has to walk their talk.  They must finish what they start.  These are all the things that politicians are not and can't do.  Nor bankers or industrialists.  They get a golden parachute if they eff up.  Politicians get hired by the oligarchs after they leave office.  

So iffen yer tyred of kicking the can down the road ... Trump is the only one capable of stopping the insanity.

Trump is Presbyterian but he obviously doesn't go to church much. The evangelicals must like it when he says things like "Christianity is under tremendous siege". http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-primaries/266804-trump-christians-under-siege

As for abortion he was claiming to be pro-life yesterday, except in the most extreme circumstances. http://www.lifenews.com/2016/01/25/donald-trump-blasts-abortion-roe-v-wade-started-a-culture-of-death-killing-over-50-million-people/

 
EDIT Trump tweeted this tonight and he seems to think it's a big deal. I wouldn't know.
