To be fair Trump has said it himself that he has no problem buying people to get what he wants when it comes to politicians. Hence, buying
endorsements from people wouldn't be such a big leap. Note I'm not saying that is the case, but surely it can't be dismissed.
However to counter, he also has past business partners and biographers that have not said very nice things about him and dealing with him.
So I see this as a wash at best.
The thing that I can't get passed on trump is his sincerity or lack of logical reasoning , exposed by his stance on immigration and that wall .
The majority of illegals that are coming here is for work provided by AMERICAN companies. The biggest employers and offenders of hiring illegals are
some of the biggest lobbyist (Agriculture,Construction, and the Hospitality industry ) and two of those are industries that Trump is associated
You want to stop the majority of illegals coming here:
1. Prosecute the American companies hiring illegals and fine them 50K per illegal hired. Take away their incentive to come and they won't. The
Canadians have no incentive to come here illegally hence they aren't coming and hence no need for a WALL.
1. Our economy is tightly intertwine with illegal immigration and stopping them overnight would likely crash our economy.
That is why politicians like Trump are not looking to fix the issue but rather capitalize on a virtual crisis by building a Fence that will cost
billions and billions to maintain and not really address or stop the problem. I'm sure despite Trump being in the construction industry that he is
likely not going to get a piece of that pie.
Trump didn't cover the real fix or the real consequence of doing it . Instead he is proposing a money making scheme that doesn't address the real
However, in reality the only candidate that I saw that actually passed my illegal immigration political litmus test in this election was Bernie
Sanders. While I don't agree with socialism or big gov't as a libertarian I can't dismiss him pointing out the truth unlike all the other lying front
runners (Clinton,Cruz, and Trump)
