As of November 8, 2015, the presidential election will begin, and with Barack Obama’s second and final term coming to an end, a new president must take his place. There have already been a handful of confirmed candidates, ranging from Ben Carson to Hillary Clinton. However, the only candidate with the face of a tortoise and cotton-candy hair is Donald Trump. He’s managed to single-handedly anger plenty of people in seconds.
One must admit, Trump’s business expertise would come in handy in negotiations with other countries, but in actuality, it makes no sense to run a country like a business, let alone one run by a narcissist.
Trump is aware of the current crises regarding racism and sexism in the U.S. Regardless, Trump’s approach to these crises is the problem.
It’s clear Trump is racist. He’s constantly directed comments with racist undertones to news-reporters, celebrities, and Barack Obama himself.
He said Mexicans are, “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.” He supported Sarah Palin on the whole “speak American” thing, which proved that #1. he’s an idiot, and #2. he’s not at all serious about the presidency.
Trump is equally sexist. He’s criticized women, claiming they’re essentially aesthetically pleasing objects. In his book, Trump 101: The Way to Success, Trump wrote, “Beauty and elegance, whether in a woman, a building or a work of art, is not just superficial or something pretty to see,” where he compared women to inanimate objects.
Trump told a female reporter about how much looks obviously matter in media and stated, “You wouldn’t have your job if you weren’t beautiful.”
He’s abrasive, unreasonable, and self-centered. Trump is childish. How can we let a child run a country?
