    We know (or at least think we know) that Trump is actually quite a bit more chummy with the Clinton's than he's letting on. We know for a fact that Trump isn't actually a conservative or a Republican. So, using at least some tin-foil (so maybe this should be there, dunno), is it in the realm of possibility that:
    1) Trump is running to help secure the election of Hillary?
    2) Trump has been promised something?

    So the big question, is there actually anything preventing the following:
    Republican Ticket - Trump/Clinton
    Democratic Ticket - Clinton/Trump

    I don't believe so. I don't believe it's illegal for a candidate to run on both tickets, although it would obviously be odd. I know for a fact that there is nothing preventing a "dual party" ticket other than an almost assured loss (see McCain talking about picking Lieberman as his first choice for a running mate).

    Just something that I came up with after a discussion with the wife.

    As greedy assed politicians, the lying thieving Clintons will cozy up with money no matter where it comes from. That does not mean that Trump is a friend. As a business man has not pushed money their way to grease the palms for some sort of deal.

    It is prudent for a buisness man to try and influence politicians .. And, politicians to suck up to money to further their causes.. All those that have honour will seek out those that have Honour.. Those without Honour will lay with a disease ridden prostitute and then smile saying "I got some"... You choose who you would rather associate yourself with..

    Don't know what Trump could've been promised that he can't already buy for himself. That said, I don't fully trust him. If he keeps Hilary out, we can deal with the consequences later. After all we survived, albeit miraculously, almost 8 years of this administration. Trump can't be as bad as 0bama or Hilary. (course, I've been wrong before).

    Personally, I think Trump is out to get himself elected and not pass anything to HC. And, I think it has gone so far that I think it's an ego thing for him also. He means to win it. As president, I think he will do well, not in everything, but most things. I think our Foreign Policy will gain greatly because I believe no one will try to cross him - not even Putin. The Russians are not as badass as everyone thinks and their economy is in a mess and is puny compared to most of the first world. What they have is damn good leadership by those that know what they want and what to do to get it. Domestically, we'll gain also, especially in trade and especially against China and I hope in jobs all around. All the other stuff? Who knows? What president has kept their promises? And, we still got a Congress that is bought and paid for. The ONLY person I trust in either house is Rand Paul and I would love to see him get the VP nod but I know that will not happen. I also do not believe that Trump will stay more than 1 term so how much can a president get done in 1 term?

    And, on Fox Trump did say he gave money to the Clintons because he was a business man and went on to say that he has given money to most politicians.

    Damning evidence......Drumpf has all but got his stumpy fingers on Hilary's wobbly bits. It seems more than just a little too cosy to me!!!! :eek:

    Dang Chell my friend ! It must be very nice for you, you know, not actually having to make a decision on which of OUR candidates to vote for. :rolleyes: Possibly you could give a small hint into your opinion of Malcolm Turnbull ?

    Trump is a businessman so he is chummy with people in power. He also said he donates to both political parties as it is in his business interests.

    He seems to be focused on the young woman. Judging by his wives, Trump wouldn't have an interest in Hillary. In addition, I believe Hillary is more prone for DC than AC in matters of intimacy.

    Ditto what @Altoidfishfins and @RickR said.
    In addition, Trump sees an economy with good paying jobs increases his personal wealth as people will have disposable income. To a businessman, 49 million on food stamps, people who had a full time job working 2 parttime jobs don't spend money as people who have good 40 hour jobs do.
