Then list them off and show why. Simply saying they are does not prove a point or make a case. Retort the list I gave as why I think he could be to start.
He stated that he wanted to pause immigration
It could become a Federal project that would create jobs.
Deport all illegal immigrants- See above. Stop foreign aid. Deport those who should not be here. There are 97 million out of the workforce that need jobs in the US. Fine companies that use illegal workers. That was done once in the US but the current administration is just letting them flow freely and it needs to be stopped. I am all for legal immigration and even allowing refugees that have bee vetted. That is what he is calling for.
Go after and kill the families of terrorists- The Geneva Convention does not apply to terrorists.
According to Common Article 3, people who are taking no active part in the hostilities "shall in all circumstances be treated humanely… To this end, the following acts are and shall remain prohibited at any time and in any place whatsoever … violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture."
Article 51.2, which states, "The civilian population as such, as well as individual civilians, shall not be the object of attack. Acts or threats of violence the primary purpose of which is to spread terror among the civilian population are prohibited."
He is trying to keep up from becoming a third world country.
He talks about how we fund wars for other countries while they sell their oil and not to us at a cheap price.
“total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.”
Wall - If we could not get Mexico to build it then stop foreign aid.
Crops - So, you think it is ok to pay an illegal immigrant less of a wage, collect no taxes and still subsidize that illegal when they use Medicaid and EBT benefits because that is what is happening. If we worked to employ legal employees it would bring in more and legal tax revenue and lower the cost of benefits to the bottom line of the US budget.
Terrorist families - If that is the case, then Obama should be charged with a war crime because not only did he kill civilians he killed 2 US Citizens. I understand that it sounds harsh but threats are better than drawing lines in the sand that are habitually crossed. Projecting strength works wonders. Right now on the world stage we look very, very weak.
Why would Trump want the US to be worse? If he is such a loud mouth about accomplishments, why would he set himself up for what could be his greatest failure? Does not make sense when you look at it like that.
Last I checked there were no Christians immigrating and killing US citizens.

The empty barrel always rattles the loudest! And this fellow is as empty as it gets. Nothing but a narrow minded hate mongering disrespectful and inarticulate bully with ultra right wing dictatorial tendencies. A legend in his own mind only and a potential utter disaster for America if he ever gets near the presidency!!! Absolutely NOTHING could make him fit for the white House, or any other responsible public office.
