That's because you've never actually researched Trump at all. He's a *really really bad businessman*. He would have made more money by dumping his inheritance into the S&P 500 than he actually made through his terrible "business ventures". (Trump's businesses started to recover from their financial tailspin when Ivanka took over all the business operations, because she's moderately competent.) You want to see someone with business acumen, look at Michael Bloomberg. Or even J B Pritzker. Heck, Rick Snyder -- I think he was a terrible governor, but his business career was competent. Rick Scott was a hardened criminal whose business acumen consisted mostly of defrauding the government, but he was apparently very good at defrauding the government. By contrast, Trump isn't even good at making money through fraud. Some of us on this side of the country have been following Trump's antics since the 1980s. Believe us when we say he's an incompetent businessman. He really, really, really isn't. You have never followed his business career, I can tell. Lots of unfinished buildings and cancelled deals.
