    Trump isn't best friends with Sanders but lately he's been trying to court his [Sanders] supporters by pointing out that the system is rigged against the Vermont Senator.

    Does anyone think Trump will win over Sanders supporters?

    He will win over some of them. But from a purely numbers perspective, if they stay home it is just as well too.

    If he doesn't win we all lose no matter what country you live in.

    As usual you have that ass backwards. The people will lose no matter if it is Trump, or Clinton. Will admit there is less chance of a war if Clinton wins.

    Trump only cares about his business and himself. He doesn't seem to care about what the people really want, he says it more to provoke, and people think he does care.

    This is all about power to him and what money can buy. After this he'll just build another golf course.

    How long do you think it will be before he is bored with the job?

    This is one thing that came to my mind when the word first started going around that he was running. I guess he has proved himself a little worth there, and he is still interested, but I still have those questions and wonder if there is something else going on here.

    He has nothing more to prove so why is it difficult to see he would like a new challenge? It's quite obvious that government squanders money in poor business practices. And he's perfectly aware of the role of fraud and corruption in the mess. It's near chi l d's play to apply some solid practice and make massive improvements. But that also means disrupting the corruption and that's why the corrupt have their long knives out for him. We certainly are not getting 3.7 trillion worth if benefit for our 3.2 trillion.

    And the fraud, and corruption, in his own businesses, will give him a head start over all others who would have to learn the "ropes".

    I think he would get bored like a spolit child as that is how he behaves in debates too if he doesn't get his own way. Look, if his own camp admit there was no policy line and the plan was to see how far he could go, then of course he did it to 'prove' he could stand for President. While the idea is anyone can given the criteria, you do need money, and he has that. Especially if he paid no tax for a decade or so.

    He has money, however, he is not using to to "self fund" his campaign as he said he would. Like everything else the guy says, that too was a lie:

    Unless your business the mafia you are on the receiving end of fraud and corruption.
