Lessons Trump learned

Some may say what is said of Trump's father is just lies, and others may think it explains Trump's thinking? I would say, Trump's family background is different from Roosevelt's and this difference is clearly a political difference that matters around the world.

War profiteering investigation[edit]
In 1954, Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate committee for profiteering from public contracts, including overstating his Beach Haven building charges by $3.7 million.[3] In testimony before the Senate Banking Committee in 1954, William F. McKenna, appointed to investigate "scandals" within the FHA, cited Fred C. Trump and his partner William Tomasello as examples of how profits were made by builders using the FHA.[citation needed] McKenna said the two paid $34,200 for a piece of land which they rented to their corporation for over $60,000 per year in a 99-year lease, so that if the apartment they built on it ever defaulted, the FHA would owe $1.5 million on it. McKenna said that Trump and Tomasello obtained loans for $3.5 million more than the apartments cost.[citation needed] Trump testified before the Senate Banking Committee the following month as it investigated "windfall profits." He said that builders would not have built apartments under an expired post-war loan insurance program if regulations had set inflexible limits on loans issued by the FHA.[18][non-primary source needed][19][non-primary source needed] Folk icon Woody Guthrie, who from 1950 was a tenant in one of Trump's apartment complexes in Brooklyn, criticized Trump as a landlord. He wrote lyrics that accused his landlord of stirring up racial hate "in the bloodpot of human hearts".[2]

There is also something about sins of the father.

There is enough to slam Trump about without bringing in his father.

If his father was in truth that creative in his finances and likewise that unscrupulous in his dealings, it certainly goes a long way in explaining Trumps attitudes and behaviors and his seeming disconnects from both reality and truth.
Thanks from imaginethat, RNG, Athena and 1 others

Besides being one serious PTSD candidate over his witnessing of killing in Iraq,he was pissed at the Federal Government over Randy Weaver's execution and then the debacle at Waco....What pushed McVeigh over the edge was actions of the Clinton Administration and in particular Janet Reno.. McVeigh supported no political candidate....




No....a sane person should be able to handle the disagreements and name calling that is common in politics, what ever the party.....However....there is an element of insanity in the losers of November's election...

Look at this, jimmygorn accusing others of deflecting.

I wonder what jimmy is trying to do here with this comment

Was Jimmy referring to Obama's father?

I think the main influence on Obama was his mother and his grandparents. I heard Obama talk about the American values were our shared values back in the day. His grandfather served in the second world war, when democratic values strongly promoted because they were supposed to separate us from the enemy and be what we were fighting for. He was certainly taught to dream of a better world and our responsibility as citizens to make the world a better place. I can totally identify with his mother having a child with a man of color as a step to making this a better world. I see the idealism that Obama represented and I like it.

I like that he normalized relationships with Cuba and he did that could be done to avoid war. I like that he thought things through instead of being reactive like Trump.
