    This is his first press conference in six months. Right now he's bragging about how well his Miss Universe contest did in Moscow.

    He just said, "If Vladimir Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset".

    And "Does anyone in this room believe Hillary Clinton would be harder on Russia than Donald Trump?" Wtf? He's made a virtue of the fact he would have a friendlier relationship with Russia. His applauding the Crimea annexation, his denigration of NATO, his support for the Russian operation in Syria... this is all public knowledge. How can he now say he would be harder on Russia than Clinton?

    He's such a moron, and speaking of himself in the third person is weird. Anyway, here's the link

    Trump just said that over the weekend he was offered a $2 billion deal to do some business in Dubai. He said that he turned it down, but he didn't have to turn it down "because as president I'm in a 'no conflict' situation". He seems to believe that as president he's incapable of having a conflict of interest, and he's patting himself on the back for not financially compromising himself. This man's egomania and his idiocy knows no bounds

    This is going to be an excellent presidency for the left. It's going to completely discredit the alt-right and destroy GOP power. If there has been a Hillary presidency (effectively a third Obama term) the left could have suffered (although president Obama has very high approval ratings right now, historically he's an extremely popular president). But by getting out at just the right time and allowing the right to come into office, led by one of the stupidest, greediest, most malign men ever to hold the presidency, the left will be able to aggregate and organise itself in opposition to this man. It will be like the Bush years on steroids. The left doesn't even have to try very hard; they can just sit back and let Trump do all the work destroying his own administration and the republican party.

    This is so bizarre, Trump said "They had a 'no conflict' provision because they didn't want presidents getting tangled up with conflicts. That means I could run the presidency and my business at the same time". That's completely contradictory. He's saying the provision exists to prevent conflicts of interests, but that the provision simply enacts that the president cannot ever be judged to have a conflict of interest?

    It's like the twilight zone. He's going to get shredded for that comment.

      Great speech so far, really excited about his presidency. Thousands of jobs already created before even becoming President! Ford, Carrier, Fiat, Toyota all announcing investment in the US

      I won't be sad to see Obama go, but it's going to be a surreal four years with this guy running the show.

      "I can name them but I won't bother" five minutes after specifically naming BuzzFeed.

      It's times like this that make me forget he's going to be President and I just want to ride the meme wave
