Trump, a billionaire real estate developer, said of a “bubble burst” that “I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy” property and “make a lot of money.”

Vulture Capitalism and Racism in one candidate for the Oval Office.

That Trump, after hating disabled American Veterans from his front door, he cheers the loss of homes for millions of innocent American Citizens in the greatest financial meltdown since the Great Depression caused by the GOP-tea.

Trump's incompetence as a businessman is exactly the correct way to go after him. Each week, pick a new scam, in which Trump runs a business into the ground and leaves decent Americans holding the bag.

Attacking his character is unnecessary. His personal flaws and sociopathic instincts are out there for all to see. Instead knock down the biggest lie about Trump, the one that is most important to him and his toadies - that he's a "winner."

You're right. Attacking Trump's character just makes the Trumpets feel persecuted, and strengthens their resolve. Attack his history, and attack his ideas. Both are very poor.

Trump wins this one...again. Kind of funny, Clinton doesn't address the REASON why the housing bubble burst. Hillary couldn't win a campaign for the president of circus clowns.

And the housing bubble started inflating when? It was destined to burst. Entirely unsustainable. Who promoted the easy mortgage loans? With easy loans what happens?

Liberals haven't a clue. Only hate and excuses.

Liberals haven't a clue. Only hate and excuses.

Considering only 33% of what Trump says has a basis in reality, and that he is constantly speaking hate, I don't think the above comment is even remotely accurate.

Yeah, you go get him Hillary. Make him pay for those capitalistic remarks.

Actually, what Trump said is no different than what Obama-supporter Warren Buffet has preached and practiced for decades.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when they're fearful.

Anybody who’s studied the history of the bubble knows that it was inevitable and predictable destruction caused by the Democrat’s own "Community Reinvestment Act." And I'm pretty sure Trump wasn’t in government at that time, but Hillary was.

only four U.S. cities make the list of the 50 most dangerous places on Earth. None of them is Ferguson or Oakland.

Trump's use of those cities, both with high poverty rates and large African-American populations, is, of course, intended as a crude dog whistle to the angry white men he's courting -- some old-fashioned victim blaming and shaming to rouse the rabble.

source: No, Trump, Most Dangerous Place In The World Is Not Ferguson

Trump is consistent in his profit motive.

The poor are in the way, just like the Disabled American Veterans in front of Trump Towers swept away by Trump, so blame the poor and stir the racism of his base. How utterly transparent this bigot is.

A businessman with a keen insight into financial markets could only have said this back in 2006 (actual quote):

The real estate market is going to be very strong for a long time to come.

"This'll be the greatest thing since I decided to market Trump Steaks through The Greater Image!" he chortled to himself.

Let the good reader take a moment to reflect on the major accomplishment the last time the GOP-tea held the White House . . .

"The economic collapse of 2008 wiped out $7.4 trillion in stocks, $3.4 trillion in real estate and 5.5 million jobs, according to a report from the Pew Charitable Trusts. It cost the average American household $5,800 in lost income. The effects were felt worldwide amid fears of a global financial meltdown, a Second Great Depression, brought about by too-big-to-fail-banks playing the U.S. economy like a Vegas casino. Some experts say the threat of a relapse endures." citation above

It is far more interesting that Trump, again, finds American Losers so funny when they lose their homes because Donald J. Trump can profit from another American's suffering.

True, and Bill Clinton signed the law that made it all possible. You should understand the issues before trying to paste the problem onto someone else. But I guess that's what happens when you're operating from an emotional stand point, and not a logical one.

Clinton blasts Trump for cheering housing bubble burst

Again, why is she blasting Trump. She ought to be focused on Sanders. Did anyone catch his speech in Anaheim, CA just recently? I ain't no dem, but he certainly wooed his supporters.

Why is Hillary backing down from another debate with Sanders? What did Sanders say recently? The DNC could get messy. . . . ohh I can't wait.

Trump loves Trump haters comment on him.. He gets free chance to argue about him. Tea Party tried, Down Trump, Stop Trump, Never Trump campaign but always someone use comments to tell Trump is Tea Party member and their efforts failed. They complained to GNC.

The news report, He did fund raising and collected 3.2 million in 72 hours.

It still boggles the mind a day later that Clinton doesn't even understand that it is possible to lose money in the gaming industry. Does she also not realize also Atlantic City is on the verge of being bailed out by the state legislature due almost exclusively to a bad bet on casinos and the loss of around 20,000 industry jobs ?? (which is approximately the number that Trump still employs in his hundreds of other companies btw).

Now you're just sounding foolish. Economies don't flip that quickly. that's why it's called a "bubble". You need new material if you're going to to stand behind the Wall Street circus clown.

And I need to apologize, I mean no disrespect to the wonderful circus clowns out there who entertain children and families. At least they know who they are and don't try to juggle their way into the White House.

Red State (this right-wing site doesn't like Trump for some reason) points out:

Trump Airlines– bankrupt Trump Vodka– folded Trump Casinos– bankrupt Trump: The Game– folded Trump Magazine– folded Trump Steaks– folded Trump University– fraud-o-rama

and adds a quote Trump made during an interview after having set up Trump Mortgage on the eve of the housing collapse:

I told a lot of people. And I was right. You know, I’m pretty good at that stuff.

"That stuff" would be getting it all wrong and pretending later you hadn't. Still, this is from the guy who would be financially better off now if he'd just stuck his inheritance in a mutual fund.

What a load of crap. Without a doubt, the Democratic Party has morphed into the liberal party for the affluent, the so called educated and the dirt poor and the GOP have become the party for the worker, the middle class, fiscally and socially conservative. If anyone is racist without a doubt, it's the Democrats. They are the ONLY people that would make gender an issue, ageism, racism categorizing people in different blocks. Trump has more endorsement from the veterans and the NRA than any Democrat could hope to give. When the Dems and Hillary support a racist group like the Black Lives Matters group, it should tell you who these people really are. Leftist hypocrites.

By the way Kc, how much time have you spent or what have you done for our veterans?

If you had cash you could take advantage of some banks unloading the bubble real estate. Hard to get a loan and for those that could get the loan down payment was 20% minimum.

Like Trump said before -we are most likely in a financial bubble with the Federal Reserve buying stocks and cheap money (low interest rates) allowing high speculation.

To Trump's credit, he took advantage of a bad situation to turn a profit. I don't see any problem with this, whether you like Trump or not, he's not apologetic for being rich and making money, he tells it like it is, Romney was trying to hide his wealth and was ashamed to admit it, the Clinton's will never go into detail about their finances and how they exactly accumulated their wealth. Romney and Clinton are too sneaky and scandalous out of fear of alienating people. Trump is just his honest self and that's why the people trust him and this ploy won't succeed as well.

As glad as I am to see you like Sanders, I can't help but feel you like him only because he sticks it to Clinton. Sanders and Trump couldn't be more different.

Trump isn't anti-establishment, he's simply pro-Trump. He's an opportunist who's shown countless times that he'll do anything to boost the Trump name and his ego. You have a serious blindspot if you think that doesn't include playing establishment politics once he realizes it'll benefit him.

If you're really anti-establishment, Sanders is the only choice. There's also the Green party but unfortunately they're not a viable option yet. You just have to look at their records to see what these candidates really stand for. Sanders has dedicated his entire life to the ideals he preaches. Take a good honest (emphasis on honest) look at Trump's record and see the difference.

Back on topic, the bubble was caused by establishment politics and poor decisions on both sides of the aisle. But at least the Democrats have people like Sanders and Warren who are actually offering real explanations and solutions to prevent it from happening again. It's telling to see which party they choose to belong to.

Unfortunately, Clinton is more of a moderate Republican with liberal social views. That's still a better choice than Trump though.

I don't think Trump supporters really care about this. Surely they've heard of Trump Steaks, his "products" manufactured in Mexico and China, his liberal use of immigration laws to replace American workers, etc. That hasn't changed anything, I doubt a quote about the housing market will. They just want the wall and they'll vote for whomever promises it to them.

bass: If anyone is racist without a doubt, it's the Democrats.

Of course. It's only natural that your party, which is 89% white, would be far less racist then the other party, which has most of the minorities and a majority of the women. Just common sense, really.

Well Mr. Bum and W, I just watched the sanders speech from Anaheim. Did you Bum? He sounds almost exactly like trump on some issues. So for you to say they "couldn't be more different", is just your uninformed opinion. Now I would say that their means are different, but not the ends.

I will agree that trump is a roll of the dice. And I'm willing to toss them. There comes a time when you realize that trusting a politician is an exercise in futility. Yes, I like sanders but he is a politician still. And I'd rather throw the dice for a business person now, than be disappointed again, Obama, by politicians.

Back on topic, the bubble was caused by establishment politics and poor decisions on both sides of the aisle.

You make it sound like it was an accident, which it wasn't. I think it's kind of naive to say so too. The sponsor of the bill was a republican Senetor Phil Gramm, an economist by trade:

If the ability to learn from one’s mistakes is the test of wisdom, then few couples fail the test more resoundingly than those “demons of deregulation,” Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Tex.) and his wife, Dr. Wendy Lee Gramm. The Gramms have devoted their careers to overthrowing the General Welfare provisions of the American System and subjecting the U.S. population to the imperial looting this nation was founded to stop. Theirs is a remarkable record of self-serving activity, conflicts of interest, failed policies, greed, and incompetence; everything they have touched has been a disaster, of which the collapse of Enron is but the tip of the iceberg.

Mrs Gramm was also an economics Wellesley grad which puts her in a class along with Hillary Clinton, Madeleine Albright, Cokie Roberts and Diane Sawyer. Notice any connection there? And still signed by William Jefferson Clinton who is NO stranger to the banksters.

I can't help but feel you like him only because he sticks it to Clinton

How is that thought even possible since I clearly stated I've liked the guy since his stance on the first gulf war? My god, you lefties are so selective to what you WANT to think and what is real.

Trump has run numerous companies into the ground , declared bankruptcy and left others to foot the bill, all the while protecting his every growing personal wealthy almost certainly syphoned from these bankrupt companies. The guy is morally bankrupt and being the POTUS he wont give a flying fudge about the average American, only about how much more money he can scam by being the POTUS. he'll make America great again, great for the top 1%

Listen, if Hillary can possibly slip the noose and get off for a lot worse, then I don't think Trump has anything to worry about. $40 million lawsuit, that's Chump change for Trump. How much do you think he spent on his campaign so far.

Trump isn't anti-establishment, he's simply pro-Trump. He's an opportunist who's shown countless times that he'll do anything to boost the Trump name and his ego. You have a serious blindspot if you think that doesn't include playing establishment politics once he realizes it'll benefit him.

So what you want to say is Trump and Hillary are pretty much of the same coin?

If you're really anti-establishment, Sanders is the only choice. There's also the Green party but unfortunately they're not a viable option yet. You just have to look at their records to see what these candidates really stand for. Sanders has dedicated his entire life to the ideals he preaches. Take a good honest (emphasis on honest) look at Trump's record and see the difference.

Sanders ideas would NEVER work in America, but it would completely bankrupt the economy. This is the last thing America needs is a committed socialist.

I don't think Trump supporters really care about this. Surely they've heard of Trump Steaks, his "products" manufactured in Mexico and China, his liberal use of immigration laws to replace American workers, etc. That hasn't changed anything, I doubt a quote about the housing market will. They just want the wall and they'll vote for whomever promises it to them.

Here we go again! Clinton supporters are No different. Do they care about Benghazi, her shady donors to her foundation, her questionable run as secretary, so basically, it's the exact same thing. No matter what dirt they find on Hillary, it won't dissuade her voter base, so why would think the opposite from Trump supporters?

Of course. It's only natural that your party, which is 89% white, would be far less racist then the other party, which has most of the minorities and a majority of the women. Just common sense, really.

And the party of tolerance and so called racial harmony are smashing, looting and using violence, beating up people and most of them are minorities? But they get a pass, right? White racism is vile and evil, minority racism is understandable and acceptable, isn't it?

He sounds almost exactly like trump on some issues.

Sanders is not for ridiculous walls and bans on Muslim immigration and he doesn't make blanket statements about women and other races. Those are only some of the huge differences that separate him and Trump. Trump has no real stances on issues because they change whenever it's convenient, including his stance on the Iraq War btw. (Hint: He was for it because the first gulf war wasn't "done correctly.")

You seem to be the one that's selective when it comes to Trump. Really, take an honest look at his history. This is a man who pretended to be his own publicist under a false name to brag about how great he was and what a ladies' man he was. Your equating of Sanders with this joke of a candidate makes me question your reasoning.

Of course they differ on other issues, the wall, immigration. That's why I wrote "some issues". Why is that so hard to understand?

You're opinions about trump are fine, free speech and all. But I do find it hilarious that you question my reasoning then posting a CNN corporate news article at the same time. You should watch the sanders speech from Anaheim, you will hear him rail against the corporate media of which CNN is a member. Pick your friends and enemy's! But CNN is not a friend to sanders. Odd you think so and even more odd you fail to understand it.

@Bass4funk,

Jeez, you're actually for the wall... I don't think even Trump is actually for the wall. He clearly knows how to work his base though...

When Obama said, conservatives love clinging to their guns and religion, that quote wasn't a blanket statement?

And what did conservative voters do when they heard this? They rushed out and stocked up on guns. And conservative politicians have been playing their religious base for decades. Not to mention that being a conservative gun-totting bible-thumper is a choice, where as being a woman or Mexican isn't.

Then you must really hate Hillary. You can't get more of a flip flopper than her.

I don't hate her. I just think she's just a run-of-the-mill, status quo politician. I think it's time for a change, but I'd rather deal with four more years of status quo than plummet into disaster. It bears repeating, but Trump has no real plan. He's even admitted it himself, saying he'll get "the best" people to advise him once he's in. Try imagining any other candidate running for president saying that. Can you take them seriously?

@FizzBit,

sanders wants to bring back jobs from China and Mexico, and that is exactly what trump is saying as well.

Except when he's trying to sell his Trump-brand clothing? (It's made in China, Mexico, Vietnam, Thailand, Korea, etc.) At least his "Make America Great Again" hats are made in America.

That's why I wrote "some issues". Why is that so hard to understand?

They're big issues though. I can't take him seriously about issues when he doesn't even seem serious about them. He's playing to a particular crowd right now. Like I said, I believe he'll maintain the status quo or worse, as long as he comes out looking good. That's my opinion, but it's an opinion based on his record, which is all we really have to go with on any of these candidates.

You should watch the sanders speech from Anaheim, you will hear him rail against the corporate media of which CNN is a member...But CNN is not a friend to sanders. Odd you think so and even more odd you fail to understand it.

I've watched part of it and watched many of his other speeches. I've been a fan since seeing him as a frequent guest on Bill Maher back when he was an independent senator. I agree that the mainstream media (including CNN) has a bias toward maintaining the status quo, but you really can't argue with quotes and videos of speeches from the man himself (like those in the link).

MrBum, a few years ago, a certain poster on this site declared he would be fine with American boarder patrol officers shooting on sight illegal immigrants. When I challenged him on this, saying I would no longer converse with him if he genuinely held that opinion, he doubled down. That is his position, against which no logical argument will prevail. I would suggest that you not respond to his nonsense.

It would be a very sad state for America to take this further step into being a police state. We should be moving away from that, not towards it.

Trump may have been able to pick up property for cheap and make out like a bandit, but in general the housing bubble was a bad thing.

Its bursting was much-needed relief for any younger American looking to buy a home for the first time, and another burst of the current bubble would also be a tremendous boost.

The only people who would have benefited from housing prices perpetually rising into the stratosphere would be people who had already purchased the biggest or most expensive home they would ever own and are looking to sell and make a big score before downsizing in retirement. This sounds like the baby boomers -- Hillary's base -- so I'm not surprised that she would take a position that implies that it's somehow desirable to see that generation continue to suck wealth from everyone below them.

Can you imagine populist Sanders saying "housing prices must remain high!"?

You libs always love to embellish stories. But I don't blame them one bit, if Obama can't find a way to change the 2nd amendment, he'll go around and find another possible way like maybe making it easier to prosecute gun sellers, so given this presidents past, people wouldn't put it past him, that's why people were flocking to the gun shows like crazy.

I just checked and Werner is ramping up their Mexico operations. Stupid idea (electrified concrete wall) vs. old reliable technology (shovels and ladders). Conservatives have not been educated that concrete walls cannot be electrified.

As in the case with the California smelt where thousands of farmers were denied water to feed their crops, the breadbasket of the West, farmers had to suffer in order to protect a fish. I believe in conservation, but not when it involves taking food away from someone that wants to work, pay their bills and take care of their family. This again, is the reason why liberals have everything completely backwards. Animals before people, no wonder more and more people are RUNNING to Trump, this is complete madness!

Obama has given up after he couldn't even get something as simple as funding for gun violence research passed.

I wish he would have given the same amount of effort to speak in Chicago about the out of control Black on Black violence that crippling the city, but then again, we all know how selective the anointed one is.

Some people think the US should be FREE for any person or anything to come in whenever they like. Just get rid of all the borders in North Amerca. Heck, why are we even a country? Every country is allowed to be a country, but the US shouldn't be a country, this is why, allowing another looney liberal and more disastrous progressive policies that plunged us into this abyss! We have one careless fake and putting another one in the WH would be a detriment to the existence of the entire country.

Just get rid of all the borders in North Amerca But shooting desparate moms and their kids trying to escape danger? And kicking American Indians off their land to build a concrete call that is electrified?

Also, can anyone explain how you electrify a concrete wall? Doesn't Trump (or his followers) understand basic physics?

Borders are one thing. But shooting small children coming in out of desperation sounds like North Korea.

But don't forget that Reagan inked 3M greencard amnesty. And it looks like Trump will also let lots of people in to replace white people in their jobs.

It's funny how some people are so deluded that they think building a wall between the US and Mexico makes sense, when the majority of overstayers don't come overland, and the net illegal immigration to the US is zero.

Some people just don't want to believe the truth, no matter how stupid they look for doing otherwise.

But you don't like Trump. You said it yourself numerous times. Maybe you're just aligning with him now because he gives you the best platform to continue your attacks on the left?

It's always so amazing to me how many foreigners that don't even live in the country, let alone a border state and talk as if they know the detailed politics of how people live, who the players are and what's at stake here.

I don't believe in killing anyone, but I do believe in upholding the law and just like with any terrorists, that would be dumb enough to hide behind children to make a political point is the lowest for me and I wouldn't bat an eye! If you break the law, border patrol, the National guard and the police can use whatever force necessary to get you to comply, willing or unwilling.

But don't forget that Reagan inked 3M greencard amnesty. And it looks like Trump will also let lots of people in to replace white people in their jobs.

After he was deceived by the Democrats on a promise that I'd he granted them amnesty, they would seal the border. So in other words, lying just comes naturally to liberal progressives. Trump's not going to make that same mistake and that's something that always stuck with him and good on him to find the best people and the most secure way to stop or make it a whole lot harder for illegals to enter the country.

But you don't like Trump.

A year ago, I didn't.

Maybe you're just aligning with him now because he gives you the best platform to continue your attacks on the left.

Naw, I have been doing this since 1992

If you break the law, border patrol, the National guard and the police can use whatever force necessary to get you to comply, willing or unwilling. OK, so a non-threatening mom and her small kid trying to cross into the border of the USA should be shot to death for not turning back. Got it. I wish Trump the best of luck with this policy. Will Trump debate about this turn back or die policy with Hillary?

Then how about the American Indians getting kicked off their land for the electrified concrete wall. BTW, how do you electrify a concrete wall?

Correct. The Executive branch of gov / DOJ authorizes it. That's why simple traffic stops, in US, escalate to "tasers" or worse -shootings. People should "comply" with LE.

In the case of US Border Patrol Agents, they should detain and deport these illegal border hoppers. But if the illegals escalate the confrontation, the burden shouldn't be on Border Agents . . .

Shoot em' dead on tha' spot. Show them we mean 'business' they might stop coming?

Shoot em' dead on tha' spot. Show them we mean 'business' they might stop coming? OK, Trump just says to shoot anyone (including small children) coming through like we see with the old Berlin Wall (just reverse).

Buy low and sell higher, right ? That is capitalism, is it not?

So what is Clinton advocating?

Socialism......

So Clinton's husband forced banks to sell to unqualified customers and punished them if they failed to meet their quota and Clinton has the gall to attack a businessman who correctly predicted the coming crash? Hillary is a joke.

“How could Trump possibly champion the collapse of the housing market and our economy?” U.S. Representative Tim Ryan of Ohio said on the call.

Because as Trump said it was a bubble and financial bubbles are things you want to burst as soon as possible in order to limit the economic damage they do.

"The economic collapse of 2008 wiped out $7.4 trillion in stocks, $3.4 trillion in real estate and 5.5 million jobs, according to a report from the Pew Charitable Trusts. It cost the average American household $5,800 in lost income. The effects were felt worldwide amid fears of a global financial meltdown, a Second Great Depression, brought about by too-big-to-fail-banks playing the U.S. economy like a Vegas casino. Some experts say the threat of a relapse endures." citation above

Do you seriously honestly believe that the executive office, regardless of who is in it, has that much power over the US economy?
