The Toxic Donald Trump Incites
I was a Trump supporter and still a part of me does like his "bulliness". But, like many former supporters, the more he acts like a dictator and irresponsible presidential candidate, the more I think he would make a horrible president.
While many scoff at the past, just look WAY back into the pre-WW2 years when both the Facist Mussolini of Italy and Nazi Adolf Hitler were coming into power via elections in Italy and Germany. Some of the political rallies have a close resemblance to those of Donald Trump's, with elements of violence from those opposing them and supporters who use brutality. Of course, all of Trump's supporters are ignorant people to a certain extent- only concerned about "Making America Great Again" and at all costs, basically in street language it is , "Fuck the world".
Trump refuses to accept any blame for his supporters acts of violence. Of course, he is. He incited his followers using the tone of his language, his toughness, his racism, his rudeness. His followers love this because it is refreshing after eight years of passive, PC-correct, professor-like Obama. Like I said, I found it refreshing. But, as President, Trump would create many more enemies than friends, just like Hitler and Mussolini. A Trump president would be a powerful ego trip for him and his iron will would make many angry Americans as well. Instead of working with others and compromising, I fear Trump will want to only win and compromise is a lost to him. Hitler was like that. Very little room for compromising and working with opponents on foreign, national or domestic issues. With Trump, it will be more like, "It is the Trump way or No-way". Trump's iron will may work in certain ways and circumstances, but overall, this attitude tends to create more unrest and opposition as time goes on because Trump will appear like a King or a Bully to challenge and overthrow.
Trump rattles on about how he will make America great again and provides little details about this renovation. During interviews, he often bullies those commentators he does not agree with. Sure, some of the agitation of recent violence at Trump's rallies is from groups seeking their own fame and seeking disruptions, others are simply against what Trump stands for. Yet, because of Trump's overall attitude, his followers literally take whatever he says to dictate their actions using violence to squelch opposing supporters.
Even though he states he is not to blame, he is. Only a fool would think he was not. If it is between Trump and Clinton, God help America. I might not vote.
