Is Donald Trump on Quora

Is Donald Trump on Quora?

Sean, I asked you nicely for an apology for your referring to my “lawn” that you said Donald Trump would “water.

Instead, amazingly, you wrote back that you did not mean a real lawn like a house’s lawn.
If you did not mean a real lawn like a houses’s lawn, then what did you mean when you referred to my “lawn?”
Then, instead of saying you were sorry, something that should have been so simple for you to do, you merely replied that you “regret” that I “perceived” things the way I did.
That is not an apology.
That is like saying, “I’m sorry you feel that way.
” You spoke condescendingly and disparagingly to me.
I have made a Report to Quora about your comments and how poorly you have handled my concern.
My new reply: Sean, once again, you have glibly tossed out an apology for my perception.
You should apologize for what you said to me, not for my perception.
I know you understand the difference, so acting like you are confused is both disengenuous and condescending to me.
I am a nice grandmother who joined the conversation as a newbie.
I knew there would be different opinions, but I did not know there would be rudeness.
You should be ashamed of youself.
I stand by what I said.
I'm an attorney and I know the criteria for sexual harassment.
My new reply: Sean, the reason no one else took offense at your comment to me about my “lawn” is because you didn’t talk to them about their “lawn.
” Of course they weren't offended ;—)
I am not surprised at your continued stance.
I didn't figure I was talking to a Southern Gentleman.
My fault was not realizing that sooner.

Donald J.
Trump

This is apparently a verified profile.
Here are some examples of his answers:
Should Trump fail to win the Republican nomination, is it likely that he will run as as an independent?
Would Trump make a good president, economically speaking?
He's doing okay here.
People are talking to him at a personal level.
EDIT:
Quora appears to have changed their mind, because the account has now been banned:

37 of them, to be precise.
The one that you linked to is very unlikely associated with the real person though.
I don't think he would present himself as interested in discrimination, racism and sexism.
More likely did someone create this account for him, presenting him as such.
I'm not defending Trump here, though—I'm just pointing out that he would present himself otherwise.
Edit: David Eaton used a better method tracking down Donald Trumps.
42 accounts found.

President Trump doesn’t spend much time online, he has stated.
Except when he Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren, he knows his audience (and their grade level).

Depends on what you mean by "real" — yes, there really is an account on here called Donald-J-Trump-4 that claims to be that of the renowned hair model and professional narcissist; is it really him? I rather doubt it!

I found 42 different instances where someone has used the name "Donald Trump" on Quora (in some cases, they had changed it a few times to things like "Kanye West" and "Donald Tromp").
  They all look like they're attempting to be joke accounts, or they have absolutely 0 questions, answers, or edits.
  A bunch were deleted or otherwise moderated.
Pretty safe to say that no, he does not presently use Quora.

Why yes, yes he is Donald Trump

No, he doesn’t know how to use a computer and it would be way too much reading and writing for him.
The language in many of the answers would also be too confusing for him, he likes it short and with lots of pictures.
Maybe they should do a Quora segment on Fox where they read a question and then pick the answer most flattering to him, sum it up in a paragraph and put a nice chart with it.

Donald Trump has made his debut on Quora.
The president-elect did set up an account, so he, or at least someone representing him, will occasionally answer questions.
Here’s his profile.

Too many characters allowed for many folks, including Trump, is my guess, vs Twitter's 140 which promotes small mindedness.
  

Yes I am!!

Unlikely.
While it is there, it looks more like a joke.
If Donald Trump actually joined Quora, he would probably be more serious.
 

I doubt it, he can’t read very well and probably the questions are too difficult for his 5th grade mentality.

Trump may or may not have someone register an account for him, but in realtiy, I don’t think he would ever choose to.
Quora prides itself on in depth, longform answers, with citations and scholarly writing.
Trump prefers punchier, shorter, funnier, and crueler ways of communicating, and quora isn’t OK with personal attacks, which is a Trumpian staple.

No.

Quora User's answer to Is Donald Trump the most embarrassing president in U.
S.
history?


I received a brief reply from a Quoran claiming to be the president.
(see above)
I’ve been around awhile, so I’m not that naive.
My wife, who has one of her degree in IT, said “You know, anyone could have created that profile, right.
?” I said, “Yeah, I know.
But it’s still kind of fun.
One other thing though.
If I wanted to screw with people being the president, and still being able to make my point, this is exactly how I would do it.
Just to keep people wondering.
So I do what I do, and did some research on the day, and time the answer was posted, compared to what President Trump did that day.
This is what I found out.
The answer was posted at 12:02PM, Friday, November 24, 2017, which was Black Friday.
The president was in Mar-a-Lago, up early tweeting by 7:10AM, spoke with Turkish President Erdogan, before making a 15 minute trip to Jupiter Florida (about 9:30AM), playing a quick round of golf with Tiger Wood.
He was likely back at Mar-a-lago between 11:30-noon.
Not really sure.
He would have to had posted his Quora answer shortly after that, before attacking a left over turkey sandwich with stuffing of course.
Yes this is very unlikely of course, but in the event the president is a Quoran, I have to direct one question at him, and demand an answer.
Is it stuffing, or dressing, sir?
My wife and daughter would like some flowers for Christmas, sir.
It would go far to curtail some of the fear they have built up over the last year.
It should be obvious what I want.
Some writing classes.
Merry Christmas!

It is my understanding that Donald Trump doesn’t do much reading.
According to sources in the WH, if it’s important someone will sum up an article of statement for him.
Though I hear he tweets.

Is Donald Trump on Quora?

Is the Trump-ette on Quora? I think we'd all know pretty darn quickly if he ever made it here.
His head would explode but not before he spent a few hours losing his shit and ranti…errrr… answering & commenting about
Then Trump would try to task the CIA & NSA with tracking each and every one of us but they'd have to remind him that doing so is against the law.
This would result in a Twitter shitstorm from the Orange Man.
His supporters would flood Quora and what was once a quiet, generally mature forum for ideas/opinions and knowledge would devolve into a pseudo adult version of 4chan but with much poorer grammar.
Oh, and
Jennifer, they’d have your name, workplace and photo with which to find you and Trump himself would show up and water your lawn….

No, President Donald Trump is not on Quora.
If you look at this profile (which many people feel is the real profile of the President), you'll find that it says, “This person's name is hidden due to an unverified name.

Further, if you see its log (https://www.

Lincoln was right — and it is time we heeded his words.
I am not going to let America and its great companies and workers, be taken advantage of anymore.
I am going to bring back millions of jobs.
Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration.
The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.
Nations around the world, like Canada, Australia and many others — have a merit-based immigration system.
It is a basic principle that those seeking to enter a country ought to be able to support themselves financially.
Yet, in America, we do not enforce this rule, straining the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon.
According to the National Academy of Sciences, our current immigration system costs America's taxpayers many billions of dollars a year.
Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits: it will save countless dollars, raise workers' wages, and help struggling families — including immigrant families — enter the middle class.
I believe that real and positive immigration reform is possible, as long as we focus on the following goals: to improve jobs and wages for Americans, to strengthen our nation's security, and to restore respect for our laws.
If we are guided by the well-being of American citizens then I believe Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades.
Another Republican President, Dwight D.
Eisenhower, initiated the last truly great national infrastructure program — the building of the interstate highway system.
The time has come for a new program of national rebuilding.
America has spent approximately six trillion dollars in the Middle East, all this while our infrastructure at home is crumbling.
With this six trillion dollars we could have rebuilt our country — twice.
And maybe even three times if we had people who had the ability to negotiate.
To launch our national rebuilding, I will be asking the Congress to approve legislation that produces a $1 trillion investment in the infrastructure of the United States — financed through both public and private capital — creating millions of new jobs.
This effort will be guided by two core principles: Buy American, and Hire American.
Tonight, I am also calling on this Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with reforms that expand choice, increase access, lower costs, and at the same time, provide better Healthcare.
Mandating every American to buy government-approved health insurance was never the right solution for America.
The way to make health insurance available to everyone is to lower the cost of health insurance, and that is what we will do.
Obamacare premiums nationwide have increased by double and triple digits.
As an example, Arizona went up 116 percent last year alone.
Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky just said Obamacare is failing in his State — it is unsustainable and collapsing.
One third of counties have only one insurer on the exchanges — leaving many Americans with no choice at all.
Remember when you were told that you could keep your doctor, and keep your plan?
We now know that all of those promises have been broken.
Obamacare is collapsing — and we must act decisively to protect all Americans.
Action is not a choice — it is a necessity.
So I am calling on all Democrats and Republicans in the Congress to work with us to save Americans from this imploding Obamacare disaster.
Here are the principles that should guide the Congress as we move to create a better healthcare system for all Americans:
First, we should ensure that Americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage, and that we have a stable transition for Americans currently enrolled in the healthcare exchanges.
Secondly, we should help Americans purchase their own coverage, through the use of tax credits and expanded Health Savings Accounts — but it must be the plan they want, not the plan forced on them by the Government.
Thirdly, we should give our great State Governors the resources and flexibility they need with Medicaid to make sure no one is left out.
Fourthly, we should implement legal reforms that protect patients and doctors from unnecessary costs that drive up the price of insurance — and work to bring down the artificially high price of drugs and bring them down immediately.
Finally, the time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across State lines — creating a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring cost way down and provide far better care.
Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed.
Every problem can be solved.
And every hurting family can find healing, and hope.
Our citizens deserve this, and so much more — so why not join forces to finally get it done? On this and so many other things, Democrats and Republicans should get together and unite for the good of our country, and for the good of the American people.
My administration wants to work with members in both parties to make childcare accessible and affordable, to help ensure new parents have paid family leave, to invest in women's health, and to promote clean air and clear water, and to rebuild our military and our infrastructure.
True love for our people requires us to find common ground, to advance the common good, and to cooperate on behalf of every American child who deserves a brighter future.
An incredible young woman is with us this evening who should serve as an inspiration to us all.
Today is Rare Disease day, and joining us in the gallery is a Rare Disease Survivor, Megan Crowley.
Megan was diagnosed with Pompe Disease, a rare and serious illness, when she was 15 months old.
She was not expected to live past 5.
On receiving this news, Megan's dad, John, fought with everything he had to save the life of his precious child.
He founded a company to look for a cure, and helped develop the drug that saved Megan's life.
Today she is 20 years old — and a sophomore at Notre Dame.
Megan's story is about the unbounded power of a father's love for a daughter.
But our slow and burdensome approval process at the Food and Drug Administration keeps too many advances, like the one that saved Megan's life, from reaching those in need.
If we slash the restraints, not just at the FDA but across our Government, then we will be blessed with far more miracles like Megan.
In fact, our children will grow up in a Nation of miracles.
But to achieve this future, we must enrich the mind — and the souls — of every American child.
Education is the civil rights issue of our time.
I am calling upon Members of both parties to pass an education bill that funds school choice for disadvantaged youth, including millions of African-American and Latino children.
These families should be free to choose the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school that is right for them.
Joining us tonight in the gallery is a remarkable woman, Denisha Merriweather.
As a young girl, Denisha struggled in school and failed third grade twice.
But then she was able to enroll in a private center for learning, with the help of a tax credit scholarship program.
Today, she is the first in her family to graduate, not just from high school, but from college.
Later this year she will get her masters degree in social work.
We want all children to be able to break the cycle of poverty just like Denisha.
But to break the cycle of poverty, we must also break the cycle of violence.
The murder rate in 2015 experienced its largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.
In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone — and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher.
This is not acceptable in our society.
Every American child should be able to grow up in a safe community, to attend a great school, and to have access to a high-paying job.
But to create this future, we must work with — not against — the men and women of law enforcement.
We must build bridges of cooperation and trust — not drive the wedge of disunity and division.
Police and sheriffs are members of our community.
They are friends and neighbors, they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters — and they leave behind loved ones every day who worry whether or not they'll come home safe and sound.
We must support the incredible men and women of law enforcement.
And we must support the victims of crime.
I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American Victims.
The office is called VOICE — Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement.
We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.
Joining us in the audience tonight are four very brave Americans whose government failed them.
Their names are Jamiel Shaw, Susan Oliver, Jenna Oliver, and Jessica Davis.
Jamiel's 17-year-old son was viciously murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member, who had just been released from prison.
Jamiel Shaw Jr.
was an incredible young man, with unlimited potential who was getting ready to go to college where he would have excelled as a great quarterback.
But he never got the chance.
His father, who is in the audience tonight, has become a good friend of mine.
Also with us are Susan Oliver and Jessica Davis.
Their husbands — Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis — were slain in the line of duty in California.
They were pillars of their community.
These brave men were viciously gunned down by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record and two prior deportations.
Sitting with Susan is her daughter, Jenna.
Jenna: I want you to know that your father was a hero, and that tonight you have the love of an entire country supporting you and praying for you.
To Jamiel, Jenna, Susan and Jessica: I want you to know — we will never stop fighting for justice.
Your loved ones will never be forgotten, we will always honor their memory.
Finally, to keep America Safe we must provide the men and women of the United States military with the tools they need to prevent war and — if they must — to fight and to win.
I am sending the Congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the Defense sequester, and calls for one of the largest increases in national defense spending in American history.
My budget will also increase funding for our veterans.
Our veterans have delivered for this Nation — and now we must deliver for them.
The challenges we face as a Nation are great.
But our people are even greater.
And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform.
We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.
S.
Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William "Ryan" Owens.
Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero — battling against terrorism and securing our Nation.
I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, "Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.
" Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity.
For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends.
Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom — we will never forget him.
To those allies who wonder what kind of friend America will be, look no further than the heroes who wear our uniform.
Our foreign policy calls for a direct, robust and meaningful engagement with the world.
It is American leadership based on vital security interests that we share with our allies across the globe.
We strongly support NATO, an alliance forged through the bonds of two World Wars that dethroned fascism, and a Cold War that defeated communism.
But our partners must meet their financial obligations.
And now, based on our very strong and frank discussions, they are beginning to do just that.
We expect our partners, whether in NATO, in the Middle East, or the Pacific — to take a direct and meaningful role in both strategic and military operations, and pay their fair share of the cost.
We will respect historic institutions, but we will also respect the sovereign rights of nations.
Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people — and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path.
My job is not to represent the world.
My job is to represent the United States of America.
But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict — not more.
We must learn from the mistakes of the past — we have seen the war and destruction that have raged across our world.
The only long-term solution for these humanitarian disasters is to create the conditions where displaced persons can safely return home and begin the long process of rebuilding.
America is willing to find new friends, and to forge new partnerships, where shared interests align.
We want harmony and stability, not war and conflict.
We want peace, wherever peace can be found.
America is friends today with former enemies.
Some of our closest allies, decades ago, fought on the opposite side of these World Wars.
This history should give us all faith in the possibilities for a better world.
Hopefully, the 250th year for America will see a world that is more peaceful, more just and more free.
On our 100th anniversary, in 1876, citizens from across our Nation came to Philadelphia to celebrate America's centennial.
At that celebration, the country's builders and artists and inventors showed off their creations.
Alexander Graham Bell displayed his telephone for the first time.
Remington unveiled the first typewriter.
An early attempt was made at electric light.
Thomas Edison showed an automatic telegraph and an electric pen.
Imagine the wonders our country could know in America's 250th year.
Think of the marvels we can achieve if we simply set free the dreams of our people.
Cures to illnesses that have always plagued us are not too much to hope.
American footprints on distant worlds are not too big a dream.
Millions lifted from welfare to work is not too much to expect.
And streets where mothers are safe from fear — schools where children learn in peace — and jobs where Americans prosper and grow — are not too much to ask.
When we have all of this, we will have made America greater than ever before.
For all Americans.
This is our vision.
This is our mission.
But we can only get there together.
We are one people, with one destiny.
We all bleed the same blood.
We all salute the same flag.
And we are all made by the same God.
And when we fulfill this vision; when we celebrate our 250 years of glorious freedom, we will look back on tonight as when this new chapter of American Greatness began.
The time for small thinking is over.
The time for trivial fights is behind us.
We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts.
The bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls.
And the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams to action.
From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears —
inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past —
and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts.
I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit.
I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country.
And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and —
Believe in yourselves.
Believe in your future.
And believe, once more, in America.
Thank you, God bless you, and God Bless these United States.

One third of counties have only one insurer on the exchanges — leaving many Americans with no choice at all.
Remember when you were told that you could keep your doctor, and keep your plan?
We now know that all of those promises have been broken.
Obamacare is collapsing — and we must act decisively to protect all Americans.
Action is not a choice — it is a necessity.
So I am calling on all Democrats and Republicans in the Congress to work with us to save Americans from this imploding Obamacare disaster.
Here are the principles that should guide the Congress as we move to create a better healthcare system for all Americans:
First, we should ensure that Americans with pre-existing conditions have access to coverage, and that we have a stable transition for Americans currently enrolled in the healthcare exchanges.
Secondly, we should help Americans purchase their own coverage, through the use of tax credits and expanded Health Savings Accounts — but it must be the plan they want, not the plan forced on them by the Government.
Thirdly, we should give our great State Governors the resources and flexibility they need with Medicaid to make sure no one is left out.
Fourthly, we should implement legal reforms that protect patients and doctors from unnecessary costs that drive up the price of insurance — and work to bring down the artificially high price of drugs and bring them down immediately.
Finally, the time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across State lines — creating a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring cost way down and provide far better care.
Everything that is broken in our country can be fixed.
Every problem can be solved.
And every hurting family can find healing, and hope.
Our citizens deserve this, and so much more — so why not join forces to finally get it done? On this and so many other things, Democrats and Republicans should get together and unite for the good of our country, and for the good of the American people.
My administration wants to work with members in both parties to make childcare accessible and affordable, to help ensure new parents have paid family leave, to invest in women's health, and to promote clean air and clear water, and to rebuild our military and our infrastructure.
True love for our people requires us to find common ground, to advance the common good, and to cooperate on behalf of every American child who deserves a brighter future.
An incredible young woman is with us this evening who should serve as an inspiration to us all.
Today is Rare Disease day, and joining us in the gallery is a Rare Disease Survivor, Megan Crowley.
Megan was diagnosed with Pompe Disease, a rare and serious illness, when she was 15 months old.
She was not expected to live past 5.
On receiving this news, Megan's dad, John, fought with everything he had to save the life of his precious child.
He founded a company to look for a cure, and helped develop the drug that saved Megan's life.
Today she is 20 years old — and a sophomore at Notre Dame.
Megan's story is about the unbounded power of a father's love for a daughter.
But our slow and burdensome approval process at the Food and Drug Administration keeps too many advances, like the one that saved Megan's life, from reaching those in need.
If we slash the restraints, not just at the FDA but across our Government, then we will be blessed with far more miracles like Megan.
In fact, our children will grow up in a Nation of miracles.
But to achieve this future, we must enrich the mind — and the souls — of every American child.
Education is the civil rights issue of our time.
I am calling upon Members of both parties to pass an education bill that funds school choice for disadvantaged youth, including millions of African-American and Latino children.
These families should be free to choose the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school that is right for them.
Joining us tonight in the gallery is a remarkable woman, Denisha Merriweather.
As a young girl, Denisha struggled in school and failed third grade twice.
But then she was able to enroll in a private center for learning, with the help of a tax credit scholarship program.
Today, she is the first in her family to graduate, not just from high school, but from college.
Later this year she will get her masters degree in social work.
We want all children to be able to break the cycle of poverty just like Denisha.
But to break the cycle of poverty, we must also break the cycle of violence.
The murder rate in 2015 experienced its largest single-year increase in nearly half a century.
In Chicago, more than 4,000 people were shot last year alone — and the murder rate so far this year has been even higher.
This is not acceptable in our society.
Every American child should be able to grow up in a safe community, to attend a great school, and to have access to a high-paying job.
But to create this future, we must work with — not against — the men and women of law enforcement.
We must build bridges of cooperation and trust — not drive the wedge of disunity and division.
Police and sheriffs are members of our community.
They are friends and neighbors, they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters — and they leave behind loved ones every day who worry whether or not they'll come home safe and sound.
We must support the incredible men and women of law enforcement.
And we must support the victims of crime.
I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American Victims.
The office is called VOICE — Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement.
We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.
Joining us in the audience tonight are four very brave Americans whose government failed them.
Their names are Jamiel Shaw, Susan Oliver, Jenna Oliver, and Jessica Davis.
Jamiel's 17-year-old son was viciously murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member, who had just been released from prison.
Jamiel Shaw Jr.
was an incredible young man, with unlimited potential who was getting ready to go to college where he would have excelled as a great quarterback.
But he never got the chance.
His father, who is in the audience tonight, has become a good friend of mine.
Also with us are Susan Oliver and Jessica Davis.
Their husbands — Deputy Sheriff Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis — were slain in the line of duty in California.
They were pillars of their community.
These brave men were viciously gunned down by an illegal immigrant with a criminal record and two prior deportations.
Sitting with Susan is her daughter, Jenna.
Jenna: I want you to know that your father was a hero, and that tonight you have the love of an entire country supporting you and praying for you.
To Jamiel, Jenna, Susan and Jessica: I want you to know — we will never stop fighting for justice.
Your loved ones will never be forgotten, we will always honor their memory.
Finally, to keep America Safe we must provide the men and women of the United States military with the tools they need to prevent war and — if they must — to fight and to win.
I am sending the Congress a budget that rebuilds the military, eliminates the Defense sequester, and calls for one of the largest increases in national defense spending in American history.
My budget will also increase funding for our veterans.
Our veterans have delivered for this Nation — and now we must deliver for them.
The challenges we face as a Nation are great.
But our people are even greater.
And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform.
We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of a U.
S.
Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William "Ryan" Owens.
Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero — battling against terrorism and securing our Nation.
I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, "Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies.
" Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity.
For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends.
Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom — we will never forget him.
To those allies who wonder what kind of friend America will be, look no further than the heroes who wear our uniform.
Our foreign policy calls for a direct, robust and meaningful engagement with the world.
It is American leadership based on vital security interests that we share with our allies across the globe.
We strongly support NATO, an alliance forged through the bonds of two World Wars that dethroned fascism, and a Cold War that defeated communism.
But our partners must meet their financial obligations.
And now, based on our very strong and frank discussions, they are beginning to do just that.
We expect our partners, whether in NATO, in the Middle East, or the Pacific — to take a direct and meaningful role in both strategic and military operations, and pay their fair share of the cost.
We will respect historic institutions, but we will also respect the sovereign rights of nations.
Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people — and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path.
My job is not to represent the world.
My job is to represent the United States of America.
But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict — not more.
We must learn from the mistakes of the past — we have seen the war and destruction that have raged across our world.
The only long-term solution for these humanitarian disasters is to create the conditions where displaced persons can safely return home and begin the long process of rebuilding.
America is willing to find new friends, and to forge new partnerships, where shared interests align.
We want harmony and stability, not war and conflict.
We want peace, wherever peace can be found.
America is friends today with former enemies.
Some of our closest allies, decades ago, fought on the opposite side of these World Wars.
This history should give us all faith in the possibilities for a better world.
Hopefully, the 250th year for America will see a world that is more peaceful, more just and more free.
On our 100th anniversary, in 1876, citizens from across our Nation came to Philadelphia to celebrate America's centennial.
At that celebration, the country's builders and artists and inventors showed off their creations.
Alexander Graham Bell displayed his telephone for the first time.
Remington unveiled the first typewriter.
An early attempt was made at electric light.
Thomas Edison showed an automatic telegraph and an electric pen.
Imagine the wonders our country could know in America's 250th year.
Think of the marvels we can achieve if we simply set free the dreams of our people.
Cures to illnesses that have always plagued us are not too much to hope.
American footprints on distant worlds are not too big a dream.
Millions lifted from welfare to work is not too much to expect.
And streets where mothers are safe from fear — schools where children learn in peace — and jobs where Americans prosper and grow — are not too much to ask.
When we have all of this, we will have made America greater than ever before.
For all Americans.
This is our vision.
This is our mission.
But we can only get there together.
We are one people, with one destiny.
We all bleed the same blood.
We all salute the same flag.
And we are all made by the same God.
And when we fulfill this vision; when we celebrate our 250 years of glorious freedom, we will look back on tonight as when this new chapter of American Greatness began.
The time for small thinking is over.
The time for trivial fights is behind us.
We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts.
The bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls.
And the confidence to turn those hopes and dreams to action.
From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears —
inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past —
and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts.
I am asking all citizens to embrace this Renewal of the American Spirit.
I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold and daring things for our country.
And I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment and —
Believe in yourselves.
Believe in your future.
And believe, once more, in America.
Thank you, God bless you, and God Bless these United States.

President Trump doesn’t spend much time online, he has stated.
Except when he
Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren, he knows his audience (and their grade level).

Depends on what you mean by "real" — yes, there really is an account on here called Donald-J-Trump-4 that claims to be that of the renowned hair model and professional narcissist; is it really him? I rather doubt it!

I found 42 different instances where someone has used the name "Donald Trump" on Quora (in some cases, they had changed it a few times to things like "Kanye West" and "Donald Tromp").
  They all look like they're attempting to be joke accounts, or they have absolutely 0 questions, answers, or edits.
  A bunch were deleted or otherwise moderated.
Pretty safe to say that no, he does not presently use Quora.

Why yes, yes he is Donald Trump

No, he doesn’t know how to use a computer and it would be way too much reading and writing for him.
The language in many of the answers would also be too confusing for him, he likes it short and with lots of pictures.
Maybe they should do a Quora segment on Fox where they read a question and then pick the answer most flattering to him, sum it up in a paragraph and put a nice chart with it.

Donald Trump has made his debut on Quora.
The president-elect did set up an account, so he, or at least someone representing him, will occasionally answer questions.
Here’s his profile.

Too many characters allowed for many folks, including Trump, is my guess, vs Twitter's 140 which promotes small mindedness.
  

Yes I am!!

Unlikely.
While it is there, it looks more like a joke.
If Donald Trump actually joined Quora, he would probably be more serious.
 

I doubt it, he can’t read very well and probably the questions are too difficult for his 5th grade mentality.

A2A
Trump may or may not have someone register an account for him, but in realtiy, I don’t think he would ever choose to.
Quora prides itself on in depth, longform answers, with citations and scholarly writing.
Trump prefers punchier, shorter, funnier, and crueler ways of communicating, and quora isn’t OK with personal attacks, which is a Trumpian staple.

No.

…no

Quora User's answer to Is Donald Trump the most embarrassing president in U.
S.
history?


I received a brief reply from a Quoran claiming to be the president.
(see above)
I’ve been around awhile, so I’m not that naive.
My wife, who has one of her degree in IT, said “You know, anyone could have created that profile, right.
?” I said, “Yeah, I know.
But it’s still kind of fun.
One other thing though.
If I wanted to screw with people being the president, and still being able to make my point, this is exactly how I would do it.
Just to keep people wondering.
So I do what I do, and did some research on the day, and time the answer was posted, compared to what President Trump did that day.
This is what I found out.
The answer was posted at 12:02PM, Friday, November 24, 2017, which was Black Friday.
The president was in Mar-a-Lago, up early tweeting by 7:10AM, spoke with Turkish President Erdogan, before making a 15 minute trip to Jupiter Florida (about 9:30AM), playing a quick round of golf with Tiger Wood.
He was likely back at Mar-a-lago between 11:30-noon.
Not really sure.
He would have to had posted his Quora answer shortly after that, before attacking a left over turkey sandwich with stuffing of course.
Yes this is very unlikely of course, but in the event the president is a Quoran, I have to direct one question at him, and demand an answer.
Is it stuffing, or dressing, sir?
My wife and daughter would like some flowers for Christmas, sir.
It would go far to curtail some of the fear they have built up over the last year.
It should be obvious what I want.
Some writing classes.
Merry Christmas!

It is my understanding that Donald Trump doesn’t do much reading.
According to sources in the WH, if it’s important someone will sum up an article of statement for him.
Though I hear he tweets.
