If they haven't made him consider war in the past. He would do it now just because a woman is in charge? gtfo.

Also, that's what everyone was so worried about. Was Clinton leading us into war, whenever anyone said Trump would likely have the possibility to do the same. It was redirected back to Clinton and how nervous people were about a war with Russia that wasn't going to happen.

People were speaking in such certain terms like they knew the future.

Lol guys why don't you just tell me what my point is and I'll edit it into my posts so you can argue against them and pat yourselves on the back for being right.

Tl;dr straw man as **** up in here.

Are you really so stupid/naive as to not see the conflicts of interest? This is Cheney/Haliburton all over again.

You are so Republican it's silly.

People are saying that Trump has already done more than Obama has.

This upsets me.

I'm not Republican: I just see it as a non-issue. How is it a conflict of interest? Unlike you, I can't predict the future nor am I a mind reader. I also don't hate rich people. So there you go?

1. You come across as a republican so maybe re-think things.

2. Non issue? Sounds like something a republican would say.

3. How is it conflict of interest? Are you ****ing serious?

4. I don't predict. I anticipate.

5. I don't hate legitimate rich people. I hate those that get rich by gaming the system. Watch the movie Margin Call sometime.

This is not fiction.

Because of his Nea avatar I legitimately at first thought that was Nea dad trolling by making what he thought would be generic Chula answers.

Don't say **** like this unless you're volunteering to be the first one to get incinerated

No such thing as "legit rich people" it's all theft from the working classes

I'm dead serious: maybe we have different definitions of what a "conflict of interest" is in regards to where corporations and government collide. He's no longer going to even have stock in Exxon, which means it won't matter what they do after he cashes in his stock and it all goes into a trust somewhere. Even if the sanctions in Russia are lifted, he wouldn't see a dime. How is it a conflict of interest at this point in time in regards to the position he's going to take?

Also, Democrats and Republicans have both proven to be amazingly inept when it comes to government, so I don't think you have anything to be smug about. To put it another way, George W. Bush and John Podesta are equally idiotic.
