Well he has been known to refer to your poor Mexican cousins as murderers and rapists. He apparently has a problem with black people counting his monies. As to people of the Muslim persuasion, well lets face it he would ban the majority of them.

Dont know about Latin Americans but thats rather a large demographic to be stereotyping if you ask me.

1) Mexicans are not my cousins.

2) He was speaking about PART of the Illegal Immigrant subset of rapists and sex traffickers, based on an article that was published the same week he made that statement.

3) His Spokeswoman is BLACK

Research before you hand wave.

Well here are a few Trumpisms for you to ponder.

“ALL OF THE WOMEN ON THE APPRENTICE FLIRTED WITH ME – CONSCIOUSLY OR UNCONSCIOUSLY. THAT’S TO BE EXPECTED.”

“WHEN MEXICO SENDS ITS PEOPLE, THEY’RE NOT SENDING THEIR BEST. THEY’RE SENDING PEOPLE THAT HAVE LOTS OF PROBLEMS. THEY’RE BRINGING DRUGS. THEY’RE BRINGING CRIME. THEY’RE RAPISTS.”

“I WILL BUILD A GREAT WALL — AND NOBODY BUILDS WALLS BETTER THAN ME, BELIEVE ME —AND I’LL BUILD THEM VERY INEXPENSIVELY. I WILL BUILD A GREAT, GREAT WALL ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER, AND I WILL MAKE MEXICO PAY FOR THAT WALL. MARK MY WORDS.”

“I DON’T NEED ANYBODY’S MONEY. I’M USING MY OWN MONEY. I’M NOT USING THE LOBBYISTS. I’M NOT USING DONORS. I DON’T CARE. I’M REALLY RICH.”

“I WILL BUILD THE BEST WALL, THE BIGGEST, THE STRONGEST, NOT PENETRABLE, THEY WON’T BE CRAWLING OVER IT, LIKE GIVING IT A LITTLE JUMP AND THEY’RE OVER THE WALL. IT COSTS US TRILLIONS.”

“ACCORDING TO BILL O’REILLY, 80% OF ALL THE SHOOTINGS IN NEW YORK CITY ARE BLACKS — IF YOU ADD HISPANICS, THAT FIGURE GOES TO 98%, 1% WHITE.”

“LAZINESS IS A TRAIT IN BLACKS.”

“BLACK GUYS COUNTING MY MONEY! I HATE IT. THE ONLY KIND OF PEOPLE I WANT COUNTING MY MONEY ARE LITTLE SHORT GUYS THAT WEAR YARMULKES EVERY DAY.”

Sounds like the perfect gentleman eh? Not!

Why are Mexicans not your cousins given there geographical location and proximity to the USA?

May i suggest you do your own research. LoL

Socialist with minimal grasp of economics.

Yeah, I was wondering who is crazier... a Trump supporter or Bernie supporter.
I can believe Trump supporters might be crazier.... with Bernie supporters being stupider.

I don't get the anger


Republican core ideals is based around small gov't and less regulations.

However, within the last 5 decades the GOP (republican party) endorsed candidates have all talked like republicans but have acted like democrats.

The internet has exposed many of the hypocrisies and B$ of the republicans party.

They talk about small gov't being ideal . but then they go full retard and just about piss on everything they claim to believe in by :

1. Creating big gov't when they created Homeland security.

2. Created big govt when they took away your privacy and created the patriot act.

3. They took away state rights and sided with big gov't, by making it illegal for a state to decide how to label GMO products.

4. They wen't against the free market and decide to pick the winners and losers of the market when they started the bailouts.

5. They made issue number 1 in the last election OBAMACARE , then they go and select the one guy who not only created Obamacare 1.0 , but actually praised how will it worked for his state.

6. They have never deregulated anything of significance for the benefit of the masses only for the Oligarch.

As of recent when they went to deregulate something it was against the benefit of the masses which was net neutrality. Net neutrality principles were in place since the inception of the internet and was what allowed the internet to become what it is today.

Luckily for the masses we had two oligopolies that had contradicting business models fight eachother. In the end the Oligopoly (google,amazon,netflix) that won luckily had a business model that was more in tune with the best interest of the public: Fast ,cheap,reliable internet , not because they care but because they need those things to make MORE money.

7. They talk about taxes and how horrible taxes are , but when was the last time the republicans cut taxes to any significant level.


So basically their is anger because the people are finally waking up to the fact that the DNC and the GOP are just car salesman and they are taking opposite roles to play good cop-bad cop but they both want the same thing.

The Democrats are not better by the way , hence you have Bernie Sanders as their F U guy to the DNC.

I thought American ATS members were concerned with the impact of lobbyists and big money influencing their politics. The one guy who comes along and says he will deal with it. Is going to lose out to a guy who condones and participates in it. That's what I find crazy

Could it be, democrats are voting for him in the primaries so he is up against one of the competent democratic candidates and they win by a landslide?

this is illegal in some states, but how do you prove it?

ATS member line of thinking especially when it comes to politics , is by far the minority representation of the American public.

The majority are aware that all politicians are crooks and bought and paid for by the lobbyist.

However, they are to easily distracted by the DNC,GOP, and the MSM, because the DNC,GOP, and the MSM never focuses on corruption they only focus on the symptoms of corruption.

A corrupted organization would NEVER want you to focus on corruption, they want you to go and chase your tail and focus on the symptoms or anything but corruption like: healthcare, war, energy, SS,economy,racism,sexism,religion,political ideologies.

As long as we don't talk about corruption those same issues that have existed for centuries will continue to exist for centuries and we will continue to chase our tails.

Unfortunately, the majority of Americans fall for it and continue to chase their tail. In addition the American public also magically expects the same corrupted system that created the regulations in those industries which is making them billions , to close those holes and fix those industries that is working just fine for them since they designed them.


So yes deep down Americans are aware that corruption is the biggest issue, but the DNC ,GOP, and the MSM have been to effective from taking away focus from corruption and putting focus on the symptoms to keep them too busy to notice.

Well that's not quite true is it. You can quote him or don't quote him at all. Until then that sounds like projection to me.

Edit: my mistake. It looks like you did in fact quote him


“LAZINESS IS A TRAIT IN BLACKS.”

“BLACK GUYS COUNTING MY MONEY! I HATE IT. THE ONLY KIND OF PEOPLE I WANT COUNTING MY MONEY ARE LITTLE SHORT GUYS THAT WEAR YARMULKES EVERY DAY.”


Written in a book by a disgruntled employee. But guilty until proven innocent as racist charges go.


“WHEN MEXICO SENDS ITS PEOPLE, THEY’RE NOT SENDING THEIR BEST. THEY’RE SENDING PEOPLE THAT HAVE LOTS OF PROBLEMS. THEY’RE BRINGING DRUGS. THEY’RE BRINGING CRIME. THEY’RE RAPISTS.”


This was on the subject of illegal immigrants, emphasis on the word "illegal". Of course you neglected the very following sentence:

"And some, I assume, are good people. " That part is always left out.

A quick note. Mexico is a multi-ethnic country, with people of many races. "Mexican" is not a race. It would be racist to imply otherwise.


“ALL OF THE WOMEN ON THE APPRENTICE FLIRTED WITH ME – CONSCIOUSLY OR UNCONSCIOUSLY. THAT’S TO BE EXPECTED.”


We call that a joke over here.

We don't have a 'bad guy' in office. We have a GOOD GUY who has been all but ruined by the idiots in congress, and that is going to have to be fixed as well. The authoritarians, the busybodies who want to run everybody's lives and have the attitude that it's their way or no way at all, which we see by them sitting there day after day by doing nothing except creating obstacles for getting anything accomplished, will HAVE to go.

Most of these old jackasses have been there for decades and complacent with taking their kick backs and doing nothing. The newer ones like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are even worse, because they bring ignorance into the mix.

They have ANYTHING BUT the best interest of the country in mind. All they want is to push their own little warped agendas.

/rant

Wait, rant not over.

And WHEN THE HELL did religion become such a HUGE factor in who we elect? Clinton and Sanders aren't even mentioning it, and yet it's on the tongue of every Rep. candidate. WTH? It's INSANITY.

I will go to church and keep my religion private thank you so much. I DON"T need it from the President and Commander in Chief.
Have we lost our freakin' mind?

How is our military weaker or weakened under Obama? We spend more money on the military than any other nation, and there's no close second place. If anything, the military budget needs to be cut and wars, airstrikes, and regime changes need to end.

Trump is popular because he's taking his knowledge of reality TV and applying it to his campaign. Americans love trash TV and that's what he brings them, trash.

Allow me to make this linkage...

Donald J Trump personifies the Fable about 'The Pied Piper' who captivates all the innocent (& not so innocent) children of a Village (USA)... after the Village 'Adults' welched on their promise-to-pay (failed American Dream) for ridding the landscape of mice/rats (politics infested with fraud, deceit, psychopaths...)

I see the populist Trump playing the tune of an individualist-anarchist which is portrayed as 'common-sense', core-goodness ....

perhaps we are seeing an Illusion or are under the spell of a 'Delusion' which scripture/prophecy warned us of as the First & Foremost warning concerning the future time of the end-of-the-age...

...Take heed that no man deceive you.


DJ Trump might not be anything like a Ronald Reagan who orchestrated the Star-Wars strategy to bring about the reduction of the Soviet era...but I have a foreboding about the man being elevated to the WH ...

I would have to disagree with that assessment.

Its not irrational to question a guys motive that has been part of the system and that continues to benefit from the current system , to all the sudden get a change of heart and claim that he wants to fix it.

He has made billions on the current system , so you have to question why would a Guy who loves to say how much he is worth change the system that is making him all that money?

He also failed the political litmus test when it comes to immigration:

You can stop immigration overnight by prosecuting the American companies that are hiring illegals. which is giving the illegals the incentive to come here.If American companies stop hiring them then the majority of illegals will stop coming here. Just like their is no issue on the Canadian borders nor any WALL, Canadians have no incentive to come here an work for slave labor . Hence they don't come here illegally in masses.

Secondly , three of the largest lobbyist and offenders of illegal immigration are the agriculture industry, hospitality, and the construction industries which trump has ties with. Those industries benefit from cheap slave labor and would collapse overnight if they couldn't get away with cheap silent slave labor.


Thirdly, Our economy is to embedded with foreign cheap illegal immigrants to stop it , without extremely impacting our economy.

So either trump is to naive to see the real issue with immigration and how to stop it, or he has other motives? Like building a wall that will take billions to build and maintain and he just so happens to be in the build / developer industries with connections.

So yeah, I think their are some valid arguments to question his motives and fear what his real intentions are. I could go on and on on things to question trump on, but I think a rational person could see from above why one might be skeptical of trumps motives.

The one thing I hope for out of this is a stronger military.


Other than the typical GOP propaganda (Romney was saying the same thing 4 years ago), what you makes you believe that our military needs to be strengthened? I'm just curious.

Our "defense" budget in 2015 was twice what it was in 2000. In terms of percentage of the total budget, it's just about the same percentage now as then.



We're spending more and more and more on a war machine to fight wars the results of which have been what? A whole new set of "threats" that require even more money for us to feel "safe."

This is a classic con and we're all the suckers.
