Donald Trump…that is a name that immediately rouses all manners of emotions within the American mind.
A hugely successful American businessman, television personality and author, Donald Trump’s foray into the U.S Presidential campaign is generating all manners of furor. Even within his own Republican Party where he is currently the Presidential Nominee opinions are divided about him.
Doug Elmets, a Republican who was an official in the Reagan administration official had this to say about him during the Democratic National Convention “I knew Ronald Reagan, I worked for Ronald Reagan. Donald Trump, you are no Ronald Reagan.”
Impulsive statements appear to be a dime a dozen for the Great Mr. Trump – a factor which should be critically looked at for one who “could” possibly become president of the most powerful nation in the world.
For instance he had this to say about Mexicans:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people.”
Every society and culture has its bad eggs, but generally alluding that majority of Mexicans are criminals shows the thoughts of a prejudiced mind.
Oh and let’s not forget that he intends to build a great wall against Mexicans presumably, since he says Mexico will also pay for the wall.
Mr. Trump is a successful business Mogul, no doubt but following him in the media has shown that he will be a nightmare of a President, especially for whoever will be handling his PR.
