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.

Faster And Cheaper, Trump Finishes N.Y.C. Ice Rink

 
... as a Trump stumper from day 1, I can tell you that he is the ONLY candidate of any party who has the passion for the work at hand.  What is amazing, to me, is that he has not joined the many $billionaires who have already taken their money, corporations, jobs and families abroad, leaving the USA behind.  Trump does NOT need the presidency ... I like that the most!

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.

fixed your link.   Hard to argue with 538.  

I do have a couple of degrees and one is a 4 year business degree and I support Trump.  

 I am angry for a lot of reasons, but mostly about illegal immigration.  I believe that the core of Trump's support stems from this one issue, more than anything else.  Its the first box to check on my list for any candidate.  No different from those who look at abortion rights as their first box on their list.

In case its not been noticed, Trump is basically agnostic when it comes to religion.  While he was raised in Norman Vincent Peale's church, I think he got more out the positive thinking part than the religious part.  He's the only candidate on both sides who isn't talking much about social issues.  How refreshing.  No deceit there.  He's sticking to economic and security issues, which includes securing the border.  I've read his immigration paper and his tax plan.  They are both of substance.

He is not a part of the global banking and industrial oligarchy.  He owes them nothing and cannot be controlled by them.  He understands how they get out of paying their fair share by merger's that take corporate headquarters overseas to avoid taxes which is called inversion and wants to stop it for openers.  Currency manipulation is another.  I don't think any other candidate can talk knowledgeably about inversion or currency off of the top of their head.  He lives and breathes this stuff, knows it inside and out.  That is his wheel house.  He is also firmly opposed to the TPP, another important issue for me.

It is estimated that US corporations are sitting on at least $2 Trillion in cash overseas.  He has a real tax plan to bring it back home.  He is the only candidate talking about this as well.  Just think about what that would do for our economy.  That money would be pumped into our economy and create one hell of a business boom that would benefit all of us.  Remember that a rising tide lifts all boats.

I've looked at many of the nuts and bolts of his plans and rhetoric and do not see deceit.  What do you see about Trump that is deceitful / cunning ?

Kurtster, don't mistake cunning for intelligence. Trump is pandering to the anger of the Republican working class:

He has their attention but if this race ever comes down to articulating any sort of intelligent plans or policies, The Donald is screwed.  As a Democrat, I alternate between amusement at the GOP klown kar primary season and fear that one of these dolts will actually become president and make Dubya look like a genius.
