Pages: 1 2 3


Real estate mogul Donald Trump announces his bid for the presidency in the 2016 presidential race during an event at the Trump Tower on the Fifth Avenue in New York City on June 16, 2015. Trump, one of America's most flamboyant and outspoken billionaires, threw his hat into the race Tuesday for the White House, promising to make America great again. The 69-year-old long-shot candidate ridiculed the country's current crop of politicians and vowed to take on the growing might of China in a speech launching his run for the presidency in 2016. "I am officially running for president of the United States and we are going to make our country great again," he said from a podium bedecked in US flags at Trump Tower on New York's Fifth Avenue. The tycoon strode onto the stage after sailing down an escalator to the strains of "Rockin' In The Free World" by Canadian singer Neil Young after being introduced by daughter Ivanka. His announcement follows years of speculation that the man known to millions as the bouffant-haired host of American reality TV game show "The Apprentice" would one day enter politics. Trump identifies himself as a Republican, and has supported Republican candidates in the past. But in his announcement speech he did not explicitly say if he was running for the party's nomination or as an independent.AFP PHOTO/ KENA BETANCUR (Photo credit should read KENA BETANCUR/AFP/Getty Images)

6. Trump’s Business Dealings
If you are going to run for the office of president, you need to have some sort of a track record that can be used to gauge your potential. Trump has been knee deep in beauty pageants, gambling institutions, and even professional wrestling. His questionable business dealings are built on the foundation of four bankruptcies, has been linked to the Mafia in both new York and Philadelphia, and has participated in two Wrestlemanias. If he is making money, Trump puts morals aside and goes for the jugular. It doesn’t matter how low he has to go as long as there is a potential for profit. What will happen if the United States is faced with trade deals that involve people who Trump does not like or who have refused to help him in the past. Trump will let his personal feelings dictate how he runs the country.

7. All About Publicity
One of the things that Donald Trump excels at is self-promotion. He is likened to P.T. Barnum, a modern day carnival barker who is always screaming to look at me, look at me. He sees the race to the White House as a platform to promote his many business ventures, his friends in business, and any future projects he may have on the back burners. Trump is using the political election as an opportunity to garner free publicity for the Trump brand. Donald Trump has even floated the idea of running for president back in 1988, then again in 2004, and yes in 2012. He has mused about running for Governor of New York and Mayor of New York. But each time, he uses his forays into politics for boosting the Trump brand only to decide not to eventually run. Now that Trump has made it to the election and has crushed Hillary Clinton, what is he going to do in the White House? Will he turn the Oval Office into his own publicity central to turn the Trump brand into a global phenomenon?

So there you have it, 7 reasons Donald Trump will be the worst president. Bottom line, Donald Trump has always been about representing one person, himself.
