Why you should not vote for Donald Trump

Daniel Magalit

This is a plea. A plea for everyone and anyone that is able to vote. A plea for NO ONE to vote for Donald Trump.

Trump has proven, on many occasions, that he is racist, xenophobic, sexist and most prominently, ignorant. If it is not obvious to you that Trump is not, at all, worthy of presidency, then you are probably one of his followers. You should stop reading now because you, too, are blind with ignorance.

Trump has said many things that prove he should not be president, and should be put down like the dog he is. Press Room VIP has a list of 36 quotes from Trump on their website. Here are a few tidbits from the man that some people hope is their next president:

“You know, it really doesn’t matter what [the media] writes as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass,” said Trump. So Donald, women are just pieces of ‘ass’ to you?

“When Mexico sends its people … they are bringing drugs and they are bringing crime and their rapists,” said Trump. Again, Donald, your ignorance is showing. Mexico is not made up of rapists and crime-lords. Every single race and culture in the world has criminals in it.

Not all drug lords and rapists are Mexican, just like not all African-Americans are “thugs.”

Trump also has said something along the lines of, “Hillary can’t satisfy her man so she can’t satisfy a country.” When did sex and politics become partners? It is a shame that Trump equates woman to nothing more than tools for sex and degrades women almost every time he opens his elephant-like mouth.

(Need I bring up the “bleeding” fiasco with Megyn Kelly?)

According to MSNBC, “Kelly confronted Trump with his history of referring to various women as ‘fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,’ then asked if that reflected ‘the temperament of a man we should elect as president?’

Trump called Kelly’s question “ridiculous” and “off-base,” in an interview with CNN the following day.

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump told CNN host Don Lemon on Friday night. “Blood coming out of her wherever.”

Obviously, Trump was taking a shot at the fact that she is a woman, and was referring to her menstruation cycle. Trump earlier in that same interview said that he respects women. Seriously?

Our world is as dangerous as much as it is beautiful. People can be dangerous, and people can be amazing human beings, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or culture. When Trump says things like he is going to build a wall to “protect” our southern border and his followers applaud, our world gets a little darker.

When his supporters say they will vote for him because he’s “honest,” “speaks his mind,” and takes no “BS,” the rest of the country cries for help.

This country was built (and is still being built) by immigrants. This country got rich on slave labor and is still profiting. There are still people out there that want to get rid of immigrants and treat African-Americans like the inferior. Not to mention, Trump is the biggest hypocrite in the business.

What the media fails to inform Americans about is that his companies have gone bankrupt four times. His parents were illegal German and Scottish immigrants. He accuses Mexicans of being rapists, yet he was accused of raping his ex-wife Ivana back in 1992. Neo-nazis and the KKK have openly stated that he is “The only hope for white America.” He has never held any sort of political career.

If none of that scares you, you are the problem with America.

This is a plea to vote for what’s right. Donald Trump is the worst decision for this country.
