What a terrible measure for placing respect. So just as long as someone who says awful stuff keeps saying (and doing) awful stuff they deserve respect? With that philosophy you would have to have a ton of respect for ISIS. They also keep saying (and doing) awful things, and don't back down. Jesus man. You're better than that. Rethinking bad ideas you once had is a sign that your mind actually works and you can question both the world and yourself. It's called growing. Maybe the first time around you got it wrong. Better to finally get it right than to stand stubbornly on the side of ignorance.
As for the disparaging things he said about undocumented immigrants – that Mexican immigrants are "bringing drugs … they're bringing crime … they're rapists" – the real estate mogul and reality star remains unapologetic.
"There is nothing to apologize for. Many bad people are pouring through. I'm not saying just Mexican, many bad people. All you have to do is ask the border patrol," Trump says. "I don't have a racist bone in my body. I'm just exposing things that everybody knows is happening, but nobody wants to talk about."

I love me some Donald. Agree or disagree with whatever he says at least he says it and stands by it instead of back pedaling every time someone disagrees. I'd rather know his views than have him change them every time the wind changed direction.
I can respect someone more for having an opinion I totally disagree with and not apologizing for it far more than someone who just gives me lip service.
The piñatas??? He will either laugh his arse off and get one himself or he will sue the pantalones off the makers... Time will tell.

The political reality is that the GOP needs minorities and Latinos in particular to have any relevance in this political climate.
Trump just negated all the efforts moderate republicans had made to lure the usually conservative Latinos back into the republican party.
What a clown!
