Even if Trump doesn't know who Putin is, shouldn't he be the president of America?

Asked by flo (12974points) August 1st, 2016

And I don’t know David Duke. Also I don’t know what white supremacist is. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2016/02/28/cnns_jake_tapper_to_trump_why_wont_you_say_you_dont_want_support_from_kkk.html

DONALD TRUMP: I think I am, actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.

David Dukes KKK is the only group that Trump is afraid to offend. I would think that racist white supremacists are Trumps base.

What makes you think that Trump doesn’t know who Putin is? Of course he knows.

I mean, he is kind of a dunce on a lot of the finer points of foreign policy, but he’s not THAT stupid.

@flo I must be missing the connection between the question and the details, including the link.

Yes, Trump knows who Putin is.

No, he should not be the US President.

David Duke was once the Grand Master of the KKK. He supports white supremacy and the belief that the Halocaust never happened. While Trump may have been honest when saying that he had no idea who Mr. Duke is, this statement is either a reflection of his ignorance or just a point blank lie.

If you can locate any proof that Trump is humble, then please share it.

I’m pretty sure the question is being asked sarcastically.

I’m pretty sure the asker does not understand the English word, “sarcasm”.
I’m certain that sarcasm would fall under “Social” on Fluther?

Whom Trump knows or doesn’t know is only one reason on my endless list of reasons he should not be in the same universe as the White House!

@Pied_Pfeffer Did you find the quote in the interview? I just went to the link thinking the transcript was also there but no. And the video is acting like a pain.
