Donald Chump: A Clown in the White House?


Kiara Gunn and Kay Davis

Perhaps one of the most controversial candidates still running for presidency is Donald Trump. He is causing a stir on national television, and he’s wreaking havoc on Twitter.

He has said some really sexist things like “Women are essentially aesthetically-pleasing objects.” These comments include his daughter: “… I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

To add insult to injury, he stated that Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals. As of right now, he is steadily climbing the Republican polls. According to some local students at Bob Jones, he is not a good candidate for presidency. He wants to implement plans like building a wall to keep Mexico out or tracking Muslim people.

Trump said, “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.”

According to senior Masi Barnes, his idea to block Mexican people from coming into America is ludicrous and racist. She says that this country was built on immigrants and the idea that we should keep more from living in our country isn’t progressive at all.

Some people believe that he would be a good president because he knows how to handle money, but that isn’t true. Not only have some of his hotels been closed down, but his father provided him with a “small” $1 million dollar gift upon starting out. If he is so “good with money,” he should be working for the National Treasury anyway, not running for presidency.

On multiple occasions his investors and buyers accused him of being untrustworthy and accused him of fraud. He was also forced to file for bankruptcy four times. This potential president who knows how to “handle money” has now been ”trumped”.

Sounds like a chump to me.
