Trump is upset with the world of golf as the US pga has moved one of the premier competitions from a Trump owned complex to one in Mexico.
The reason sponors pulling out because they do not want to be associated with Trump.
Among the sponsors was Cadillac .

I still wonder if he's trying to deliberately tank his own campaign because he never expected to get this far, but it's backfiring and he's getting stuck with it now.

Didn't Brewster do that in the Richard Pryor movie, Brewster's Millions.

He had to lose $30 million in 30 days to win $300 million. Has Trump bet on himself?

If you want my personal opinion ,for what it's worth ?
I think he started his campaign off as a "publicity stunt"
And it snowballed !

I don't think he's mad, honestly I have my doubts that he means even half the things he says.

I never gave out negative karma (or really even positive if I'm being honest) on the other site, but I received quite a bit of it!



I agree with you here. This is by far the best answer to the 'question'. If the UK were to take a bigger role (and as the third most populous member state it really should), then couldn't it make the EU work for it, rather than it being perceived as the other way around?

Inherently, the EU is not a bad thing, it was borne out of a good idea at the time. To be honest, since the UK has been a member my whole life and longer, I really have no frame of reference as to the alternative but I can't really think of anything negative to say about it looking objectively. Immigration is such a hot button issue these days, it's really hard to find a rational approach and to see past it to the issue of the EU as a whole and I don't think it should be the hill the 'out' campaign should choose to die on.

But if one is going to concentrate on that one thing, then look at it this way - leaving the EU won't stop immigration. The UK already sets its own immigration laws anyway, as mentioned either in this thread or one of the other ones. UK immigration officials can deny entry to whomever they see fit, including me if I'm entering on my US passport, should I throw up a red flag. The free movement of EU nationals into the UK would stop, but many such entrants could just end up applying for visas, and many would be admitted. Leaving the EU won't stop refugees either, nor will it halt illegal immigration. The UK will be in the same situation as it is now, but there may be as yet unforeseen negative implications to leaving the EU. Basing a whole exit campaign on intangibles seems rather short sighted to me.

But it doesn't matter what I think, the referendum will yield what it yields. Personally, I think it'll go the same way as the Scottish independence one. A very small margin voting to stay in. And that, hopefully, will be that.
There's no law that can bar you from admittance to the UK Sultan if you have a birth certificate that shows you were born in the United Kingdom of British parents which of course includes Northern Ireland. Passports are passports but it's right of birth that counts first. When I pass through Heathrow immigration with my US passport it always gets stamped " six months stay, no right to seek employment" but if I decided to return permanently to live in the UK I would produce my British birth certificate and there's nothing they could do about it. I'm back and that's it.

I agree with your opinion that the vote to remain in the EU will pass by a narrow margin. I think that someone with a lot more balls than Cameron could do a lot more to assert Britain's influence in the decisions taken by Brussels and it has to be remembered that Britain is America's representative in an unofficial way when it comes to the US and it's dealings with the EU. Obama has already said that in so many words. The US and the EU are bound together in a solid alliance especially now with Russia and China starting to push their military muscle in the Ukraine, the Baltic states and in the Pacific.

Here's the weird side of Trump. He was asked the other morning on his views on Brexit. He asked what Brexit was. When told he replied that in his view Britain should leave the EU so here we have a man who wants to become the leader of the free world quite complacent in supporting the break up of America's major ally. One can only wonder at his complete ignorance. If the day comes, heaven help us, when he's in the White House all bets are then off what will happen to America, Europe or the rest of the world

Of course, I can easily prove my British nationality if it came to it (though I don't carry my birth certificate with me) but in the rare event that I throw a red flag, they can on the surface attempt to refuse entry. It'll never happen, of course.

I do still think, on balance, that the UK is better in than out, and that it should be more in the driver's seat than it already is. Germany, France and the UK are the three most populous EU member states, and it's no coincidence that they have been among the most influential nations in European history. It makes no sense for the UK to take a back seat now.

It is quite bewildering that the man who would be leader of this country is so apparently ignorant of world affairs. I mean, I get he's an isolationist but that's taking it to a whole new level.

Trump can best be summed up as long on rhetoric, short on substance and the lack of the latter should be his undoing if Hillary is smart enough to exploit that

I think she is. Whatever she may, or may not have done according to her detractors, they shouldn't underestimate her intelligence. Assuming she is all but the Democratic nominee at this point, the race will start to look very different once she's not running against Trump and Sanders.
