The average height of US Presidents is 5'11". President Trump is 6'3". The shortest President was President Madison at 5'4". Bloomberg is below average (no pun intended) at 5'8".

Some say Trump isn't actually 6'3".

Some people say the Soviet and Venezuelan style economies are what we should strive for too. It doesn't necessarily mean they are right.

In Ancient Rome as the Empire declined it reached a point where you could buy becoming Emperor. Trouble was, if you didn't get public support right away and somebody with MORE money wanted the job, you'd be killed and the new guy installed.

It wasn't a good system.

Of course, he isn't. He's actually a midget on stilts.

Why would you even question Trump's height?

These people are just jealous that Trump saw the chance first. They see the ineptness of Trump's challengers. So with nothing else to do to feed their ego they are running for President.

Their problem is Trump is doing a good job so their money cannot get most voters to elect the rich man they don't know over the rich man they do know.

Except for not getting out of Afghanistan, I can not find much Trump has done wrong. Sure her has made some people appointment mistakes but that happens to every President.

The Roman Empire failed because it got too big to control. Which is why you kill your enemy and come home.

As far as I am concerned the spent money is irrelevant to my voting!

Did I miss where Trump was paying people to vote for him?

Absent that he didn't "buy" anything. He simply used his own money to fund his campaign that he ran just like every other candidate.

OP is showing his colors as just a liberal troll.

In Rome they were literally buying it though. Paying off generals to back them with their army or the Senate to support them.

Bloomberg is a legend in his own mind.

Saw my first full blown Bloomberg political ad this morning. That didnít take long..

Edit: And his first town hall is going to be on gun control.
