I need to eat some crow

I never really cared much for Trump over the years. Just out of curiosity, I went to the DI archives to see what my initial reaction to his announcement was back in June 2015.

Does anyone here view Trump as a serious candidate?

7. And after he wastes all of that money in his vanity campaign

...he will file for his FOURTH bankruptcy.

Which begs the question..... How in Hell's name can anybody who has EVER filed for bankruptcy, let alone multiple times, still be a multi-billionaire?

I voted for him in the primaries - because he wasn't a run-of-the-mill Republican - all talk, no walk.

Even though I was SURE he'd lose, I also voted from him in the GE - because he wasn't Hillary.

Once he won, I really wasn't sure what to expect since he had no record in politics. I must say that I've been quite impressed by his actually taking action to follow through on his campaign promises.

I will be enthusiastically voting for him this year.

3. Same here. At first I laughed, and then

it hit me, this is what I wanted but never dreamed possible. An outsider, not beholden to donors, Big Pharma or either party. Surprisingly, my ideal candidate came in the form of Donald Trump. So be it. I've been a Trumpster ever since.

4. Me too.... I thought he was just doing it for fun, for his ego.

I actually voted for him as an anti-Hillary vote.

Turns out he's doing a good job.

5. I did not vote for him in the primaries and held my nose

when I voted for him in the general. Voting for him was the best political decision I ever made.

On a side note, I had forgotten what an idiot navy brat was. He thought Trump went bankrupt 3 times. What ever happened to to NB? Is he still here under a different name?
