We all know that Donald Trump likes to bully and insult people by word of mouth, but is he also a physical bully? Things are getting violent between Democrats and Trump supporters and Trump seems to support the violence, even threatening to send some of his thugs over to Bernie rallies.
Appealing to such a base level of ignorance in an effort to gain political support, how could it not incite violence ?
Can you imagine this guy sitting down with other world leaders and heads of state to discuss foreign policy ? He probably can't even spell diplomacy.
What I find most worrying of all is that in a country the size of US, this selection of candidates is the best you have ? I

His ego is unchecked, and unhealthy. Whenever we have to refer to the 'ego' as a separate entity, you know it is mentioned in an unhealthy way.
You are trying to present the argument that Donald has an ego, and having an ego is a normal thing, basically suggesting that I am against anyone having ego. You are wrong.

You only need to watch the documentary on trumps golf course in Scotland to see what a bully this man is. Willing to use his own private security to shut down opposition. He bullies senior citizens in Scotland who won't move to make way for his golf course. So yes he is a bully, yet that seems appealing to a large section of Americans
See your future president cut water supplies to senior citizens what a guy

I think that he is going to become a nationalist icon. Combined with his support of bullying and totalitarian tactics, this could turn into a mess.
I really don't see how its all Trumps fault all of a sudden. This country has been a cesspool for a while now.
In fact, thats a big part of his appeal as well I think. I haven't seen him say anything racist or sexist but that's all the establishment liars can talk about. He seems to upset alot of the status quo politicians, so thats why I'm getting out for the first time since 2004 and casting my pointless vote for him.

I dont agree with everything Trump says. But this violence is almost entirely being instigated by far left thugs.
More likely to be instigated by media manipulation.
They use the soundbites to stir up a nation, rinse and repeat until they get the desired effect.
I don't have stats but I would bet on Trumpet's "popularity" being directly correlated to the amount of airtime and coverage he gets.
