The only thing Trump has going for him is he is not a politician.
I want someone who says what they honestly think.
Not just tell people what they want to hear.
Even if they sound like a racist asshat.
That is just what Trump is doing. Trump has types of people rooting for him people that are xenophobic and the other type is racist.

With respect, I think your query rather misses the point, although I can understand your frustration with the double talk, obfuscations, and outright lies of previous administrations and individuals within those administrations.
However, the query is flawed none the less.
You see, the reality is that politicians are famed for the way they talk. Whether straight talking and no nonsense, or full of double meanings and half statements. However what no one seems to grasp is that by becoming a politician, by putting oneself forward as a candidate, one invalidates ones legitimacy as a candidate. Why? Because the people who want to lead are the people who should never, EVER be allowed to control anything other than their breathing, and most of the bastards need supervision to do that properly.
Trump, for example, is yet another high powered psychopath, a man who has gotten where he is,not through hard work, but by backstabbing the ever living hell out of his workforce, his suppliers, customers, and most of the people he has dealings with in the course of a day. You can tell, because it is functionally impossible to earn the amount of money he has without doing so. No one in his social position got there by the sweat of their brow, but instead got there by taking credit for the actual work of decent people, work he would rather force himself through a garlic press genitals first, than do himself.
You do not want a successful businessman (read psychopathic, narcissistic, dead hearted bastard) to lead a nation.
Vote for the person who wants the job the least, the lady or gentleman who will not spend money on a campaign, the one who would rather do anything else than lead a nation. Chances are, they will do a better job for everyone, than any candidate who believes himself/herself worthy of such a task.
