Who is this man "Trump." There have been several articles posted on the internet lately that suggest that Donald Trump isn't who he is portraying himself to be, as real conservative republican. In a REDSTATE ARTICLE for instance the author of the article states,"The Bible says not to put new Christians in leadership positions. I don"t think the conservative movement should put new conservatives in leadership positions either. Let them be sure what they believe first." In the same article its stated that Donald Trump has been a contributor to the democrat party and organizations that conservatives were against so that certainly raises the question about who Donald trump reallty is Some have suggested that Donald trump is a spoiler taking away votes that could have gone to another republican candidate running for president who is a more known conservative ruining the republicans chances of winning the White House. Donald Trump covers himself by saying that he was a businessman and as such, he gave money to a lot of different causes and people, that was the way business was done. Isn't the reason that Donald Trump is gaining so much support is because the conservatives and republicans in general are becoming fed up with the way the "Good old boys, "/ Establishment republicans, and establishment democrats, have been doing business as usual in Washington. Maybe though the Conservative republicans think that those who have been elected to office weren't listening to conservatives and independents and haven't been for a long time and are now willing to take a chance that Donald Trump will listen to them and will promote the things that conservatives believed in. Betting on Donald Trump to be the conservatives and independents friend is a gamble, only time will tell whether the gamble paided off,if Donald trump actually believed in what he said that he believed in. Donald Trump is saying what conservatives and independents wanted to hear, but is it a businessman just doing business and saying what he thinks will sell, again, only time will provide the answer, we can only hope that Donald Trump doesn't turn out to be a spoiler and allow Hillary or some other democrat to be elected to office. The conservative and independents are tired of being lied to , we can only hope that Donald Trump isn't just mouthing the words that the conservatives and independents wanted to hear and actually meant what he's been saying

Donald Trump is a man running for United States President. Trump is an American real estate developer, television personality, politician, and author. So that's really all.

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,...."

The trick is to find out which part Donald Trump is now playing..
Is Donald Trump a chameleon changing to suit his purpose

The question that I asked was,"Who is this man DONALD TRUMP," unfortunately we only have Donald Trump's rhetoric to guide us by and of course his personal history. But isn't this true of all Politicians who run for office, that their political beliefs and personal character are assumed to be what the media and they themselves present them to be and the voters, as a consequence, have often been mislead into believing the politicians were one thing and then turned out to be the complete opposite of who they claimed to be. To offer proof of politicians deceiving the voters we only have to look at Obama as a politician who practiced deception to get elected. Obama made grandiose statements about "changes" that he would make if elected president. It has been said that ,"Politician-speak has become so coded that it"s essentially another language...."Author Robert Hutton. The sad facts are that we expect to be lied to by politicians and have become jaded to the point that no one expects honesty from our elected officials anymore. If Donald Trump is just another politician like all other politicians should we be surprised if this turns out to be true of him also. but perhaps Donald trump would grow with the office of president to be an exceptional president as this quote suggests,""It"s not the position that makes the leader; it"s the leader that makes the position." " Stanley Huffty
Donald Trump has beeen successful as a business man, maybe he could be a successful president as well and be the one who return America's stature that it once held in the world,the voters, after all, gave an unknown, Obama, a chance didn't they, why not Donald Trump?

I believe that that the topic this debate concern is merely a matter of opinion. Therefore, you can't really argue because of the lack of evidence.

I hadn't forgotten your response to my subject," Who is this man Donald trump." Thank you for taking the time to respond to my post.
You posted,"Donald Trump is a man running for United States President. Trump is an American real estate developer, television personality, politician, and author. So that's really all."
The question that I asked is more definitively explained by the fact that I posted this subject under ( POLITICS.)
The question asked in my post was,"Who is this man DONALD TRUMP." was a rhetorical question inferring that Donald Trump's true intentions for running for the presidency are unknown. Others more recently have asked similar phrased questions, for instance, "Is Donald Trump for real in his campaign for president ...

Bill Clinton who had excellent command of the English Language once inferred that he was uncertain what was meant by the word,"IS"when questioned," Bill Clinton....."It depends on what the meaning of the words 'is' is.".......

What, exactly, is the question to be debated? The main question that I'm asking is " does anyone think that Donald Trump is a ringer and a democrat and is just in the contest to be a spoiler or is he really a conservative republican.
