    A few years ago, there's this joke I saw on some site: Americans will vote for anyone who promises them change.

    And what many Americans want is for the minimum wage to be raised but what does Trump think of that? Last year Trump said wages are too high. When attacked by Sanders, he backpedaled and now he claims he's open to a higher minimum wage.

    Politicians are all liars and will say anything at anytime so they don't lose supporters. So why do Trump's supporters believe he'll keep any of his promises?

    I think that if Trump is elected then we're going to see a lot of wild movement going around. Arbitrary bills, or abolitions of bills, thoughtless diplomacy and the such. Or...he'll just shut up, sit on his chair and sign wheverer they point him to sign and be a good puppet. I think the latter is the easier of the two, and the most likely in my opinion.

    Trump can only sign or not sign bills congress passes.
    The idea that he will write and pass bills simply cannot happen.
    The left freaked when he suggested threatening trade sacntions. BO just did a 500+% increase on China steel tariffs.
    People have a silly conception of Trump being nuts. He knows how to negotiate. He's demonstrated this time and again. Few pols can claim this. Of the 3 left, he's the only one.

    Based on reading real estate guru Robert Kiyosaki's books, and that man is a mirror image of Trump politically, having also written a book with him, I'd say Trump is not in favor of raising the minimum wage. He only wants to bring back factory jobs to the US and get tough on illegal immigration, not improve the lives of fast food workers. Probably in Trump's mind, the fast food poverty situation exists because there are no factory jobs for fast food workers.

    Since the "left" wants an end to all trade deals it is doubtful they are the ones that "freaked".

    Now, do you know why the tariff's were increased, and it wasn't limited to China:

    The man is nuts. What has he "negotiated" aside from screwing his partners?
