A few things to remember about Donald Trump while watching the debate

No Fortune 100 CEOs, presumably smart business people,  have given to Trump

The New York Attorney General called Trump University “a straight up fraud”

Trump projects have received at least $885 million in public subsidies

Trump & Co has been involved in over 4,000 lawsuits

Donald Trump's own line of men's wear, the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, is manufactured in China

Trump Tower was built in part by undocumented Polish workers without hard hats and getting $5 an hour

In five cases, the Trump Foundation told the IRS that it had given a gift to a charity whose leaders told The Washington Post that they had never received it.

Also according to the Washington Post:  
Trump’s casino bankruptcies left investors holding the bag while he skedaddled with their money·

Trump refused to pay contractors who had done work for him, many of whom are struggling small businesses

The Trump Network, a multi-level marketing venture (a.k.a. pyramid scheme) involved customers mailing in a urine sample which would be analyzed to produce for them a specially formulated package of multivitamins

 Trump Model Management reportedly had foreign models lie to customs officials and work in the U.S. illegally, and kept them in squalid conditions while they earned almost nothing for the work they did

Trump’s employed foreign guest workers at his resorts.

Trump paid the Federal Trade Commission $750,000 over charges that he violated anti-trust laws when trying to take over a rival casino company

 Trump is now being advised by Roger Ailes, who was forced out as Fox News chief when dozens of women came forward to charge him with sexual harassment.
According to the Daily Beast, “Four Donald Trump-licensed real-estate developments are at the center of a huge income tax evasion scheme, according to allegations in a lawsuit unsealed by a judge in Manhattan. “ Trump was described as a material witness in “the evasion of taxes on as much as $250 million in income. According to the court papers, that includes $100 million in profits and $65 million in real-estate transfer taxes from a Manhattan high rise project bearing his familiar name.” 

On issues:
Trump wants to cut your Social Security
Trump has come out against women's choice
Trump's veep pick wanted Iraq War
Trump praised Saddam Hussein and Putin

According to the Tax Policy Center analysis of the Trump tax plan, “the highest-income households would receive the largest cuts, both in dollars and as a percentage of income.” People at the bottom of the economic ladder would receive, on average, a $128 tax cut under Trump’s plan, while the top 0.1 percent would take home an extra $1.3 million.”
Just to mention a few. . .

Something else to keep in mind. The debates are a reality tv show produced to satisfy the insatiable demand for bread and circuses.
