Another year of presidential elections, this one might be the weirdest, and is definitely the worst. Our two candidates, Hillary Clinton representing the democrats and Donald Trump representing the Republicans, are both immature and unqualified candidates, but Donald Trump is the worse one.
Donald Trump is a rich business mogul who is known for his reality TV show The Apprentice. Trump left messages about Obama, revolving around his birth and whether or not it was in the U.S., which offended many people. The people demanded that NBC remove Trump from the show. However, it wasn’t until Trump left offensive messages about Mexicans that they fired him for good. After his comments, even the show he made famous wasn’t willing to keep him on.
There are many sexist and racist things from Trump, too many to mention. One of the more recent ones, a tape recently surfaced of Trump from 2005, which showed him making some degrading remarks about women, including one about him assaulting them. This lost him a lot of his supporters, yet people still, somehow, want him to be president.
Trump’s Taj Mahal, a giant casino built in New Vegas, went bankrupt recently, and while he was financially fine, 3,000 workers were fired. 3,000 people lost their job because Trump couldn’t take care of his “eighth wonder of the world,” as he called it. This could happen to our country, and only Trump will come out fine.
Trump has said a lot of insane things, including building a wall on the border of the U.S. and Mexico, and get Mexico to pay for it. Donald Trump said about this, “I will build a wall, and nobody builds a wall better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our Southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” There isn’t much point to building a wall. While it might be useful to keep immigrants out for a while, they’ll eventually find a way in.
Trump is extreme with his anti-Muslim beliefs. He doesn’t want to allow any Muslim immigrants into the U.S. on the off chance that they are terrorists. His plan is to ban Muslims from our country. “They’re not coming to this country if I’m president. And if Obama has brought some to this country, they are leaving, they’re going, they’re gone,” said Trump about Muslim immigration. After so many years of progression, Trump will revert us back twenty-plus years. We shouldn’t want someone who’d do that in office.
