And Obama has zero Constitutional authority for most of his executive orders, yet with the stroke of his pen hundreds of thousands of additional immigrants and child immigrants who made it to the USA will likely stay. 

Haven't you been keeping up?  5th Federal Circuit Court of Appeals in Texas has quashed this particular Obama Executive Order.  It won't be until Obama is out of office before the case comes to the 9 wise men(women) in Washington DC.

To claim that Trump could not accomplish things which would be hugely popular with a large segment of the population whilst Obama does illegal things which enrage people is just ludicrous.   

Show some common sense Anteros.  Trump wouldn't get 20% of the vote in a national election.

Please tell me that there is not 20% of the population that will vote for him.  :(

The clear message sent by the Obama administration is why they crossed our border illegally in the first place.

The message from Trump would be they are not welcome, should not come, and if they do will be immediately turned back.

Obama has made a mockery of our Constitution and of the concept of working with our Congress to get deals done.  Trump is an experienced negotiator who gets things done.

Chances are he will not make it very far in this election but at least he will help to shape the conversation in the right direction.

You apparently don't like him because of his large ego.  Unlike Obama his ego is matched by accomplishments in business.

Gawd I hope not.  Any input he might have makes all the Republican candidates look like idiots to the independents that will decide the election.

The Donald will most likely not be a serious candidate.  As of now he has not began the paper work involved, and is doubtful this is anything more than a publicity stunt.

Your media disagree: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-files-statement-of-candidacy/

I always thought him quite a likeable bloke. What I have read and seen up to now he is talking sense, and probably what America needs. That said, will he get enough votes? Doubtful. He is the US's answer to Farage.
please tell me where I'm being / have been 'dishonest'? 
Yes, he said that.........

Donald Trump has taken a stance against the Mexican propaganda broadcaster Univision and it has only increased his popularity.  Naturally some say that Trump is the wrong guy because he reinforces bad stereotypes about Republicans.

article
First off, plenty of Mexican illegals have been accused and found guilty of rape. Because it runs counter to a narrative designed to pack the Southwest with Democrats, the same media that manufactures a rape crisis in our university system, buries actual rapes committed by these Democrats-In-Waiting.

What Donald Trump said about illegal aliens and rape and crime was not untrue, far from it. Trump’s sin was saying What Must Not Be Said; and saying it fearlessly.

Naturally, then, Trump must be destroyed by the mainstream media. Unfortunately for them, the media made just one mistake: they forgot that Donald Trump isn’t the usual-usual Republican who rolls over like a whipped puppy every time the media piles on.

Univision was intended to be the tip of the spear in this attack, and now it is Univision on defense. Moreover, it is Univision that is losing.

Univision was sure that if it publicly and loudly dropped Trump’s Miss Universe organization, including the beauty pageant, that the boldness of such an act of public shaming would put Trump on defense, and possibly implode his campaign. This was Jorge Ramos and Univision going straight for the kill-shot.

Except…

Donald Trump didn’t build an empire and forever alter the skylines of major cities throughout the world by rolling over every time an anti-American leftist like Jorge Ramos takes a shot at him.

We are now witnessing Trump doing what he should be doing (what he did so effectively to Neil Young) — what no Republican ever does: Trump’s not only fighting back, he’s fighting back smart, and doing so in a way that is exposing Univision as the left-wing propaganda machine it is.

First Trump banned Univision and its employees from his properties; he then loudly and publicly accused Univision of being in bed with the corrupt Mexican government; he is now threatening to file a defamation suit against Univision president Alberto Ciurana for comparing the real estate billionaire to a terrorist who murdered nine people in cold blood last week.

Trump is an experienced negotiator who gets things done.

This. I used to be against businessman turning politicians, because most i had met were in foreign politics and came across as lame in comparison with diplomats in career (and as much as it saddens me, AND nevertheless it's something i count on in the perspective, the same goes for artists/actors, doctors and writers, they usually don't have a clue). Lo and behold, i had the honor of meeting via work the president of Bulgaria and i've totally changed my mind, he does great work and serves his country in the best and most honorable ways; some countries are indeed better run as businesses and if the guy/ 'gal knows what they are doing - they can only benefit their respective countries. Btw, out Prime is quite business oriented too and i think that among else that's what saved us from drawing into Balkan nationalism and madness.
As a side note, because of some aspects of his public image, i have a bit of an issue to take Mr Trump seriously, but those things are not that difficult to change with a good PR team.

Unfortunately most of us already know that this is yet another publicity stunt for Mr. Trump so I understand the sentiment.  I really wonder what he will do, if the polls show him in the lead or near it when the time is at hand?

I am just curious, what do you think of his wife who is from Slovenia?  She seems both very intelligent and beautiful as well.  He certainly has good taste in women, IMO.

I per one wouldn't want to judge her, but she's not really popular in these parts, she's considered to be a gold-digger and we don't really value women like that.  :( (And it's not  even the age gap, as it does happen here, esp. with popular and successful men - even if they are not rich, such as poets and painters.)

Well I don't know about her in particular but I will say that what you told me about values being upside down in the West is sadly often true.  :(

Don't you worry, we (East) are catching up with the speed of light!  ;D It's better now though, than it used to be in the 90ies, that was a totally crazy time and i think everyone who managed to raise sane children during those times, does deserve to have monuments devoted to them. My own country is quite puritan in comparison with Western Europe and the older i am, the more i see a positive side to it: divorces are still quite low, girls are not promiscuous, drugs/ alcohol is not encouraged and so on. I hear tourists complain because it's not what they expect from an Eastern European country, but for our own nation it's way better like that ;)
