    One wonders what would it be like for minorities to have such President. Who seems to oppose some of the very liberal, tolerant values that have made America great over the course of decades. He opposes Maxican immigrants - citing: that they are sending their words breed, and it is right time to kick them out of the country, even if they happen to be illegal immigrants. But one wonders if that is right tone in talking of minorities.

    Likewise, this man also ponders to shutdown mosques. Don't know how would America look like to both Americans and out sides world: when this man is American President.

      I don't see how Trump would be able to try to force millions of illegal aliens out of this country.  He would need the military.  People would not go quietly.  It would be war.  I also think it would be a waste of money and time.

    Fresh air and a catalyst to stimulate the rest of the candidates from both parties.

    It is a tactic similar to that used by the founders of our country to fight more effectively against a traditional military.

    The traditional military lost because they didn't know how to win in an unfamiliar war strategy.

    I believe Donald is a little bit of both.
    If he weren't running for president it's doubtful many folks would even being paying attention to politics this early in an election cycle.
    People who admire him like the fact that he is free of lobbyist pressure because he doesn't need their money.
    He's also not "politically correct" and never apologizes.
    Trump also promises to "Make America Great Again" which brings back memories of the industrial revolution when America was thriving. He also feeds into the base's belief that any hardship we're experiencing is due to illegal immigration and bad trade deals.
    Trump promises to solve both issues!
    Republicans who dislike him see him as saying anything to get elected. Many traditional established or moderate Republicans don't consider him to be a "true conservative".
    He's in favor of a single payer insurance system which goes way beyond what Obamacare is. He's been pro-choice in the past, and he has likely alienated the Latino voting block which is needed to win a general election.
    Building a 1900 mile wall and deporting 11 million people from the U.S. is not practical and borders on insanity in their eyes.
    The Republican National Committee is attempting to stop Trump!
    Democrats believe Trump is a Godsend!
    They feel Donald exposes Republicans to be heartless greedy racists. They also feel he lacks foreign diplomacy skills. They hope he wins the nomination and can't wait for the general election debates.
    The real suspense here is will the RNC (allow it's voters to choose) their party nominee or do they have plans to sabotage Trump if he starts winning early primary states?
    If the heads of his own party are against him it's unlikely he will win the nomination let alone the presidency. It will be interesting to see!
