Trumps whole comment on Castro was actually good.
Doesn't matter if he wrote it himself or only published it.

This is the most honest and accurate description of Castro that any political figure of the western world has made.

Call Trump out when he does stupid things - because he does - and don't focus on meaningless shit.

Yeah, the guy who owns over 500 buisnesses, some international, totally doesn't know foreign relations.

Damn idiot.

That's correct, he doesn't. Owning a business does not make you an expert on foreign policy. Or domestic policy, for that matter.
Trump has proven his ignorance time and time again during his campaign, stop using this argument.

So you think a dude that is over 3 times your age, plus became a multi-billionaire from a million dollars through his own effort, knows fuck all on foreign policy compared to some college-age guy on a website known for memes?

How far up your ass is your head? I think we need a new unit of measurement to describe stupid. I'll call it the Ruspanic.

Not an argument.
I have studied foreign policy. I am not an expert, but I do have a degree in it. As I pursue my career and get a graduate degree I will hopefully gain more and more expertise in the field.
On the other hand, I can probably go my whole life knowing only basic knowledge about molecular biology, because I have no intention of studying that field in-depth - not because it's not worth studying, but because my personal interests and goals lie elsewhere.

Trump made his career in business, not in policy. He will be the first President in US history who has neither held public office nor served in the military, and by the admission of himself and those who know him, he rarely reads. Many or most of the things he has said on foreign policy, especially when pressed on details, are poorly conceived, inconsistent, wrong on the facts, and rejected by people who have spent their careers in that field. I have read what these people said and wrote about his proposals, and I have enough knowledge to make informed judgments myself.

If you would like to know why I say Trump knows very little about foreign policy, ask me. If you still disagree, present your counterarguments.
Dismissing my opinion because of my age is lazy and condescending.

this is the problem we face
people like linkeron feel that money=experience. despite the fact that baby bush was an absolute moron, rupert murdoch thought egypt is in the middle east, and TRUMP has done and said ridiculously stupid shit throughout his whole campaign

Yeah, I'm pretty sick of the "he's a businessman so he must know a lot" argument. If you want to claim that he knows a lot about economics or foreign policy or whatever, look at his actual proposals and policy statements and explain how they are good. Because if they're not good, the businessman argument is simply proven false.

To be fair to Murdoch, there isn't a set definition for what the "Middle East" actually encompasses. Some people count barely more than the Arabian Peninsula up to Syria, while others include everything from Afghanistan to Morocco. Egypt actually has a bit of land that's considered to be in Asia.

Well, hot damn, a civil person. Alright, I'll bite.

But before we start keep in mind that one's profession does not encompass the whole of their knowledge. While age is not the only limiting factor in the breadth of one's knowledge, diligent study can be just as effective, one can not reasonably argue that age and experience doesn't have a significant impact.

Correct, Trump could have developed foreign policy expertise by educating himself. It's just that he didn't.
Carly Fiorina was a much less successful businessperson than Trump, with equally little policy/political experience, and yet she was still able to coherently answer foreign policy questions on the debate stage, whereas Trump didn't know basic facts.
#20 - anon (12/02/2016) [-]
I'm 100% certain he'd at least know of the country we haven't been able to trade with until like last year. Seeing how business is his bussiness.

Of course he must have known who Fidel Castro was and where Cuba is, but there's not much more a businessman needs to know about a country he can't do business in.

Being a businessman does not necessarily mean you must know all about trade and economics. Even if you've done business internationally. Trump knows real estate very well and has a knack for branding, marketing, and entertainment, but falls short in other areas.

The original pipeline was actually North of the town of Bismark. But it was scrapped due to the Army Corps of Engineers in an early environmental assessment saying that the drinking water for the townspeople in Bismark was at risk.

For the record though, the plans call for the pipeline to be directionally bored so that it will not come in contact with the Missouri River. It is planned to be "as deep as 90 feet" below the riverbed.

IIRC the issue they have with it is primarily about the river it would have to go across. Any leakage there would contaminate a major water source for the res.

Their only protest is that they aren't getting a shit ton of money since it isn't crossing their sacred casino property.

It did get moved and there were studies done to figure out which path it could be diverted to where it would avoid all sacred monuments and tribal land

Its not just about monuments and land, its about the river as well.
