I have to ask what our US cousins think about him - many people in the UK think of him as a (dangerous ?) figure of fun (apart from the fact that his surname is also English slang for a fart !).

To me, he sems to be going for the "Boris Johnson" look, but there is only one person in the world that can carry off that look & that's Boris himself.

Still, sPutin seems to like him..........

well, the general opinion i've been seeing online boils down to "maybe he'll be just bad enough to finally make people do something about money in politics."

that and the whole "easy target" fiasco.

As a long time close observer of US politics and the practitioners thereof it is my opinion that Mr Trump is a braggart and a political buffoon whatever his business credentials might be. If the Republicans nominate him and not one of the able politicians currently in the running <I favor Marco Rubio for what that might be worth> the US will be in real danger both of lousy government <even compared with what we have now> and from impulsive reactions and sheer stupid lack of real knowledge. We can ill afford more clownishness at the top of the federal government.

my biggest concerns is - he is not a politician, he came from business with , from my point of view, stupid idea that making "deals" in politics, he can do just exactly the same way he did in business.... as it is not the same.... completely unrelated - again - my pov. Drop the bar ground low or sky high , and after that u plz me so i do something. Some of the wars were started this way.... it looks dangerous to me and maybe it would work in eu, but i dont see this to work with rus or china for example ..... but its possible that with years he will get more experience in true Politics, and things will calm down.... the rest, to me its USA business whom they elected... he was elected so....

I'm an American. To answer your question from the 2015 stand point, many loved that he was able to stand up to not only the bias media, but more importantly the politicians. He ran as an outsider ready to "drain the swamp" and make america great again. After he won, everyone started wishing each other a merry Christmas again.

Currently, the nation is split right now the middle. Half hates him, half loves him. Trying to speak without a bias, I would say that if he was covered fairly by the media, his approval rating would be around 70% based on the economy alone. The TV media cuts him down more than any other president in history, sometimes deserving it - as no president is perfect - and sometimes purely because of bias. Some Americans want to see the country fail, they hate him that much. Me, I'm rooting for the man. The world should as well, for when the USA economy is doing well, the world's economy benefits too.
