I Like Trump, But Not As My President.

Donald Trump, akin to his hair on a windy day, is unapologetic for his appearance. He keeps the populace engaged despite his questionable religious views. He is probably the most outspoken and honest candidate. Whether you agree with him or not, he doesn't lie to appease a people. Conversely, other candidates choose to woo an audience with eloquence and a hidden agenda. Donald may be pompous to numerous individuals, but he doesn't sugar-coat his flamboyant ideals or risqué foreign policy.

If I were to agree with Donald Trump on an issue, it would be in expressing caution toward Muslims entering the country. I, however, would express more caution toward the allowance of Syrian refugees in the United States. With the real danger of ISIS, we should be saying no to particular refugees. However, Donald is a bit overboard when stating we should build a wall to lessen the illegal immigration of our Mexican neighbors. Thinking about the idea, honestly a wall isn't that horrible an idea compared to a cartel killing Texans and Mexicans alike. I'm surprised by his popularity, his words though affable do provoke deep thought, and by his popularity many agree with his ideas. Donald could be the silent thought of numerous politicians that didn't have the gumption to reiterate their thoughts beyond bathroom stalls.

Donald makes valid arguments amidst the other accusations and hysterical taunts. I understand Donald Trump probably was once the silent voice behind a number of lobbyists and has now been encouraged to take center stage. Unfortunately, I wish he stayed behind his CEO desk. I'm black, I'm poor, and I like Trump. He received backing from a number of black preachers which only made me think he had a wonderful idea about how to increase tithes. I watch the strange pout upon Donald Trump and think... "he's on to something but out of touch." He's too aggressive and brash to possibly pull off a comfortable Bilderberg Group meeting let alone a PTA luncheon. Trump is not "un-american" by any standard. He stands for wealth, power, respect, and money. However, he is an elitist that cannot fathom what is good for the populace. Donald Trump is simply out of touch with the middle-class American. Intentionally or unintentionally, if Trump becomes president, the average American can expect apathy from him. He sees the bigger picture and unfortunately loses focus on what matters... us. I know he envisions a grandiose legacy for the United States of America, but can he do it without the theatrics?

Donald Trump is only the most trustworthy candidate is because he can back himself. Most political candidates share the ideology of the "money lender" behind their campaign. However, the man is too bias and too obnoxious in my opinion. He interrupts candidates and sure he gets a chuckle out of the American people, but other countries may not stand for the disrespect. No matter how interesting, accomplished, or wealthy Donald Trump is... it doesn't mean he should be our next leader. He has miscommunicated with the Latino and Muslim community and hasn't made a noteworthy attempt to provide an in depth explanation for his words in poor taste. I wish the candidates running alongside Trump the best in their presidential quests!

      Donald Trump is successful; I'm interested to see the ideas of Ted Cruz and how he will combat the other GOP candidates.

      After reading your hub, I don't really understand why you don't like Trump for president?

      You say that you are Black and Poor, but like Trump.

      the man is too bias and too obnoxious in my opinion. He interrupts candidates and sure he gets a chuckle out of the American people, but other countries may not stand for the disrespect.

      ............. bias -- it means he has convictions, and it not afraid to express those convictions.

      ............. obnoxious--- most New Yorker's exhibit this trait. It is inferred by the receiver as obnoxious, but it is just straight talk, no BS. It would be interpreted as the latter by another NYer.

      ............ As for other countries, why do you care. The US uplifts many countries, and provide aid for their people, who have been abandoned by their leaders. President Obama believes in being subservient even to terrorist nations. We don't get respect from other countries by being subservient.

      You say

      ........It seems like the miscommunication is an inference that you have created. In both cases, Trump was talking about illegals, and terrorists. He was not talking about American Citizens, or immigrants that want to adapt to the American culture as opposed to having America become a clone of their country.

      ....... You may not like his presentation, or his views but he has the highest truth factor among all the candidates. There is nothing wrong in disliking him because of his personality, but how many of the other candidates have broached the real issues of the country?

      I am neither a democrat or republican nor any party. I believe that both parties are the root cause of the continued decline of the US. I didn't care much for the Trump who was the TV personality, but I like his actions that fly in the face of being PC. I read his book the "Art of the Deal" when it first came out decades ago, and I think that he should be praised for surviving riches, to bankruptcy several times. Also doing his kind of business in NYC requires the ability to negotiate with the most powerful unions, and bureaucrats in the country.
