Oh yes, please. Let's examine the amount he's spent on weed vs. the tax deduction he got for sending money to a charity.

Has anyone run into folks talking about how if Trump had just put all the initial money his father gave him in the S&P, reinvested all dividends, he'd be worth multiples of what he's work today?

 

I think I posted that several times.  Trump isn't a successful businessman.  He literally just erects giant monuments to himself and makes a slight amount of money.

Trump is human garbage but he's made a ridiculous amount of money doing non-building things. An investment would only yield more than he's made if you ignore his book, TV and personality sales.

I was referring to the actual format of the debates. Having two-three hours split between 10 people is a debate on easy mode for the candidates that are already doing well (and a nightmare for those who are polling low). They just have to not fuck up in the 15-20 minutes of attention they actually get and there's very little opportunity to really go after anyone who shows a weakness. That's not going to be the case in a one-on-one debate, regardless of who comes out in the end.

Well, here's the thing: the premise is if he had taken the money, invested it all in the S&P, an reinvested all the dividends he'd be worth more. The thing is he's paid taxes and also spent a shit load of money. I've ran several scenarios and they tend to come up with him being worth 50-60% more if he had invested his initial nut, never paid taxes and never spent any of the proceeds. We all know not paying taxes and not spending anything is a silly thing.

Trump is more like the Kardashians than a conventional businessman, except he started out with more money.

The dream reality show ticket would be

Donald Trump and Bruce Jenner

A duo with a lot of balls.

100% agree.  Oh well.  Maybe one day I can get an $8M loan from my dad.

I would love to see you turn 8 mil into 2 billion in what, 30 years? Can we please stop with the retardedly false narrative that he's not a good business man. All it takes is to look at the trump holding website to see apartments he's selling that are worth more money than probably the entirety of this forum will make in their lifetimes. If all it takes to become a billionaire in 30 years is 8 million dollars let's put this a magnitude lower. Most of us have at least 8k in investments. Turn that 8k without adding additional capital into 2 mil in 30 years.

Purely from a tvm calculation barring spending and taxes you would have to average over 20% return per year every single year for three decades.

I'm not 100% sure he actually outperformed the S&P, and if so by how much? I'm sure he didn't outperform it to the extent that Buffett did, that's for sure.

Benghazi represents that triumph of self-serving politics over country. Conservatives have come to believe that, to the far left, the ends justify the means and that winning at politics is all there is. (If you doubt this, turn to MSNBC, where every event is cast in electoral politics).

Benghazi confirms that Alinksyism and narrative control the left.

Ambassador begs for security, gets killed by jihad, Obama and Clinton say it was the unfortunate result of a hate crime in California. Nothing to see here, we are winning, you are safe, vote Obama 2012.

Then, as caskets are being taken off the planes, Obama and Clinton look the families of the dead in the eye and say "We'll get the man who made that video."

Terrible, terrible people.

I hope Trump makes this part of his campaign.

No, but I do get some pleasure casting the left under the dark red light of their Satanist thought master.

Buffet had a totally different strategy though. The mans a genius but I would bet he is the real reason the keystone pipeline is such a problem.
