Trump receiving well deserved criticism from all over

In the wake of Donald Trump’s latest controversy, the Republican Frontrunner is receiving heavy criticism from all over, even being called a “demagogue” and a “racist” by many esteemed journalists.

Trump recently  tweeted (and has backed it up multiple times on live television), that there should be a temporary ban on all Muslims from entering and leaving the U.S.

Let’s say this idea was somehow instituted, wouldn’t you think there would be a concrete plan behind it all? Well no, not at all. When asked about how he would identify Muslims coming into the U.S., Trump told a CNN correspondent that we would simply ask them if they were Muslim or not. Very intuitive, Trump.

Even Trump’s own party doesn’t support him. Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan (who is a Republican), stated that Trump’s idea to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. is, “not what this party stands for and, more importantly, not what the country stands for”. His ideas have also been said to be unconstitutional and illegal but yet, he still persists.

He’s somehow survived all of the threats, insults, and bribes for him to drop out of the race. The PAC (Political Action Committee) even started a two and a half million dollar anti-Trump campaign focusing on exposing him through media outlets such as TV and radio ads.

The “hacktivist” group, Anonymous took time off of their attacks on ISIS to focus on messing with the Trump Tower website. The group released a video saying, “This policy is going to have a huge impact. This is what ISIS wants. The more Muslims feel sad, the more ISIS feels they can recruit them…You have been warned, Mr. Donald Trump.”

As Anonymous said, this idea of a temporary ban on Muslims will only make things worse. It will make America furthered hated by Muslims who are on our side and Muslims who aren’t, leading to more supporters and sympathizers of ISIS.

Famous author, J.K. Rowling, tweeted an accurate comparison of Trump to the Dark Lord from her Harry Potter series-Voldemort.

And in case you are unaware, this is not Trump’s first controversial comment. Earlier in his campaign, he stated that he was going to send all illegal Mexican immigrants back to Mexico, comparing them to “rapists” and “murderers”. He’s also made fun of Serge Kovaleski’s physical disability. Serge is a New York Time’s reporter who wrote an article criticizing Trump.

He’s mocked the Chinese, saying, “(Here’s) negotiating with China. They say…we want deal.” He’s also discriminated against women and said President  John McCain was not a war hero. McCain was a prisoner of war for six years.

Honestly, there are so many of these comments made by Trump that I could go on for an entire article.

So, is Trump a discriminating bigot? It sure seems like it. If you aren’t the exact “perfection” he thinks he is, then you’re below him. Basically, in his mind, that’s everyone.

However, it’s not like there have been zero racist presidents before him. In fact, there have been at least twelve clearly racist presidents. Some include Andrew Jackson who was responsible for the Trail of Tears and was a major slave owner, and Richard Nixon who was known for using the “n” word. It’s just that in this day and age, the things he is saying and doing are highly frowned upon by society.

Trump told another CNN correspondent that his Muslim friends are “so happy” he is discussing the issue of Islamic Fundamentalism. However, he also said that they do not approve of his idea to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. And that’s the whole problem with Trump, he goes to far. Sure, Islamic Radicalization is a problem that needs to be fixed but not through the way Trump wants to fix it.

With all the threats and lack of support from his own party, Trump has in fact threatened to leave the GOP. I guess we’ll just have to see where this goes.

In the mean time, keep the comedy coming if you want to see him fall, America. Make him a joke and make his supporters finally realize just who they’re supporting.
