http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/...s-warning-that-an-economic-collapse-is-coming

That is a question and answer session with Trump that, while quite lengthy is still a good read. He's just saying out loud what a lot of us have been thinking and others in his position are afraid to say:

excerpted said:
#1 "If oil prices are allowed to inflate and keep inflating, if the dollar keeps going down in value, I think there’s a very distinct possibility that things could get worse."

#2 "....you’re going to pay $25 for a loaf of bread pretty soon. Look at what’s happening with our food prices. They’re going through the roof. We could end up being another Egypt. You could have riots in our streets also."

#3 "I think gold will go up as long as people don’t have confidence in our president and our country. And they don’t have confidence in our president."

#4 "The banks have really let us down. Number one, they did some bad things and caused some bad problems. Number two, if you have something that you want to buy, like a house, they’re generally not there for you."

#5 "I see $3.50 for a gallon of gas for cars, and cars are lined up trying to get it and it’s $3.50. It’s a shame, a ridiculous shame."

#6 "I think the biggest threat is that our jobs are being stolen by other countries. We’re not going to have any jobs here pretty soon."

#7 "We're like a whipping post for other countries. We are standing there and just being beaten by South Korea, by Mexico, by China, by India."

#8 "All of our jobs are going to China. We’re rebuilding China and other places."

#9 "We are a laughingstock throughout the world."

#10 "The federal government has no money."

#11 "I hate what is happening to this country."
What is interesting is that for every one of those points the author breaks it down and offers proof.

And the comments from the readers afterwards are telling as well.

The interview originally appeared on NewsMax, but I like how the guy broke it down and offered up tons of support for Trump's assertions.

I'm beginning to wonder if Trump might be a viable candidate?

Anyways, here is video of the original interview:

I pretty much agree with just about everything Trump has to say ... I'm just still not sure that I trust him to be honest.

Trump could do very well as a president. It would be the first time in recent memory when we had a great businessman in that office.

Our Government needs to be run like a business. We need to show a profit at the end of the year. Simplify the tax code. Get rid of some of these ridiculous laws. Cut defense spending. Reign in government oversight... did you folks hear about the progesterone (a weekly preventive pre-term labor injection) medication costs? Our government did that because they authorized a single company to be the sole distributor. Unbelievable!

Yeah, I'm torn. But here's the deal. I figure, and correct me if I am wrong, but I figure the old standards for politicians have not worked. Matter of fact, it seems to me that the liberal media controls who is squeaky clean and who is not.

If they wanted Sarah Palin to be evil, they make her evil.

If they wanted John Edwards, who is an evil scumbag cheating unethical lawyer, ... if they wanted John Edwards to be a saint they make him a saint. Remember, had the scandal not broke on him he would probably be our President right now. He was far out in front of Obango and appeared to be sailing towards the D nomination.

So I'm starting to ask myself now, "do I want someone portrayed as perfect, or do I want someone who has experienced life, made a few mistakes, but bounced back and won - someone who doesn't quit."

Trump is telling it like it is. Plus I think he is passionate enough and American enough to force some things through and tell the D.C. circles to kiss his @$$.

If not him, I hope we find someone with his experience and passion and disconnections from the D.C. crowd. We just cannot afford to have more of the same.

Regardless of all of this, his message is true. We're going to have more economic problems - there is just no way around it not turning really bad. I personally would not want to be the guy that follows Obango because things are going to be really mucked-up for awhile. It's going to take a hard charging hard-headed bulldog of a person to turn this thing around. All the lies are about to catch up with us.

How many people on here can not stand the p**s poor showing that Obama is giving around the world. Rahm Emanuel is one of Obama's do boy's, so why in the frig would you vote for scum like Trump? This peter puffer gave thousands to a crook who was elected mayer Sh##*tcago. Some of you folks need to read the real news or get better informed. Wake UP America, seriously wake up. Trump is about Trump and could give a rats a$$ about any american who is a blue or white collar worker. Google the facts about Trump and his donation to Emanuel. Please be better informed before making a snap decision "I'd vote for him" why because he is a successful business man?

Well, you make a damn good point there - no arguing with that at all. He does seem to talk out of both sides of his mouth at times. I've heard him slough it off as "just being fed up with Bush," but I'm really not buying that either.

I think he was against McCain, then for McCain, then for Obama when it was clear Obama was going to win and saying something like, "well, anything is better than Bush."

Yes, that does bother me, big time.

It's almost disheartening is it not? I almost feel the same way about every candidate presented these days. And I am just not sure about the Pauls either. Dr. Ron comes across as crazy some times and there is something, I can't put a finger on it, about Rand that worries me.

We're just is a damn fine mess. It is way worse than it was in the seventies. I mean waaaaay worse. The reason is because we've lost our conservative values. We're suffering from information overload. We are easily duped. We are not exhibiting good common sense. We're too politically correct. We're not sweeping around our own back door before we go sweeping around others'. We're just in a damn fine mess.

I agree that we need a good businessman as president and the government should be run like a business (with in the constitution). I don't think Trump is it though. To me, he is not a good businessman. He is very good at promoting himself and his products. But, he has made some terrible business decisions. Everybody makes terrible business decisions, but Trump has made way more then I care to count to call him a good businessman. I think Trump would financially ruin us as Obama and our other recent presidents have done lately.

I can't fathom why any american today , with Trump's outlook on such a bleak future, would want to be president and be responsible to address such a mess.

I mean, I understand why BHO would...the whole "Change" thing...and his indoctrinated upbringing..he's ready to see it all melt...but... if Trump is speaking doom and filling out his candidate card at the same time...maybe he's looking to scare us into a vote?.. I dunno...sucker's gotta get a hair cut before I could begin to take him seriously.:rolleyes:

Look the way I see it, he can't be any worst than what we have now. maybe someone like Trump can make a difference. worst case scenario, we'll have a trump casino in DC, and TEOTWAWKI.

that trumps politics might be questionable, and that he swings with the political winds doesnt invalidate what he had to say about the economy.. Heck even Obama has hit the nail on the head a few times. then promptly ignores it.
