Trump's Realistic Doubts re:"Deal" Encouraging

I know that not everyone will agree with me on this, and there are those who are really terrified of the possibility that Donald Trump may get elected President of the United States. But I find Trump's evolving policy and admitting that he doesn't truly understand the situation here in Israel and the Middle East very refreshing and encouraging.
In his comments on Wednesday, Trump said he'd heard from an Israeli that "the other side has been trained from the time they're children to hate Jewish people," and that was why a deal might not work. "You have one side in particular growing up and learning that these are the worst people," he said.
"I would say if you can do that deal you can do any deal," he added. "That's probably the toughest deal in the world right now to make and it's possible it's not makeable." Jerusalem Post
IMHO when a politician or candidate, (the growing popularity of real estate developer Donald Trump shows that one does not have to be trained in classic "politics" to run for high office,) is certain and confident of some opinion, ideology, policy etc. I get nervous. That's because it shows a closed-mindedness about the person. He/she is not terribly interested in learning facts, because those facts may show that he/she is mistaken. And there hasn't been a leader willing to truly and sincerely admit a mistake since King David. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Now, I don't know how this will all evolve, but I do know that the anti-Israel sentiment/policies/ideology etc in the United States, especially in the government and universities is getting much worse. That's why I feel better with someone who is not from the "system," the establishment.

What do you think? Please comment and share, thanks.

Considering who else is running, I only pray that it all works out in the end. When you are talking about a loose cannon without a track record, it is like throwing all the cards in the air and hoping they will fall the right way. The hearts of kings and rulers are in the hand of G-d.

When Trump finds out there is more money to be made from the Arabs with their 22 countries and all that money and oil, he will do what any arrogant and greedy businessman does, follow the money.

Trump - like the serenading orchestra on the sinking titanic, he's another false hope for America.

Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again" screams Greater Israel ie Gog and Magog War, but the competence isn't there. There's no shortage of enthusiasm, but Russia and China have the upper hand, now, and won't slack off. With Korea aiming to nuke America off the map, there doesn't seem to be any room for Americans to escape the Inquisitory Karma onslaught. Americans deserve to be obliterated, honestly. I mean, hello, "Gay Marriage"? The entire Western Hemisphere deserves to be Nuked to smithereens. I look forward to witnessing that happen. Audacious Donald is exactly what's needed to make America Not So Great Again.
