Mr. Donald Trump.

Updated on July 5, 2015

Outsider Influence Or What?

Mr. Donald Trump, as a Republican candidate for the 2016 U.S. presidential election, has been very frank in pointing at one of the critical issues bothering so many American citizens.

Most people thought that he has hit the nail directly on the head and he should be
the type of person that the country needed and/or should have for president.

Some others were not happy about his approach, as being brash, flamboyant and even conceited. Because of that, there has been a rash of criticisms from particularly the Hispanic community in the U.S. itself and some Spanish countries.

However, everybody was aware of what Mr. Trump was referring to in his speech to launch his candidacy. In fact, he was talking about illegal aliens, bringing their problems to the U.S. to boot, and that was drastically hurting the American society.

The NBC has cut business ties with him; and Macy's, a department store, which has some connection with Mr. Trump, has also denounced his remarks and has broken that connection. Yet, should a department store dabble in politics? In regard to beauty pageants, like "Miss Universe", a Spanish TV channel, Univision, has likewise disassociated itself from any dealings with the tycoon.

The accusation that Mr. Trump was being a racist was rather inaccurate, due to the fact that, when it came to race, Mexicans and Caucasians, which Mr. Trump was (and is), stemmed from a common racial or ancestry database.

Some people thought that, if Mr. Trump was really serious in running for the highest office in the land, he should drop all of those hangers-on, especially as a sponsor and promoter of those beauty pageants, and concentrate on his political campaign instead, because what they were doing was only hampering his progress.

They would eventually hurt his political ambitions and prove to be just parasitic,
if not mere excess baggage, collectively, of course.

Otherwise, it would be like outsiders attempting to influence the U.S. 2016 Presidential General election; something similar to the bookies in the U.K., "chalking up" as to who should be elected president of the U.S.
