Who is Donald Trump?

Let me start by saying this: I am Canadian yes, and I am not a Donald Trump fan. Far from it. I don’t even think he’s successful financially! Yep, that’s true, he didn’t start from nothing, he started by inheriting a small empire that he grew of course. However, studies have shown that had he just kept the money he inherited and invested it in the S&P500, he would have been much richer than what he currently is!!!  Isn’t that crazy for someone who has filed for bankruptcy several times and mentions his fortune in every sentence? Here’s the study in question: http://fortune.com/2015/08/20/donald-trump-index-funds/

However, had he done that, no one would have heard of him today, and he probably wouldn’t have become a candidate for the white house. The guy is a branding genius, I’ll give you that, but does it mean he’ll be a good president? Far from it!

Donald Trump is a divisive person, he doesn’t even understand foreign policy and his life revolves around his own person. I wouldn’t say he’s not a nice guy, because he seems to be a genuine one, however I wouldn’t ever want to be represented by him.

Here were my thoughts on him, I could elaborate more but I strongly hope that you understand what I mean. I’m not trying to influence the decision of anyone; especially from Canada, however I just wanted to state this here.

If I were living in the USA and he became president, I would directly emigrate to Mexico! Wouldn’t you?

Please leave comments here, and if you think I’m right, share this on your blog or social network
