“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best, they’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.” Donald Trump made this statement about Mexicans during a press conference.
Donald Trump said Mexico “Isn’t sending their best”, but yet 28% of Mexican immigrants have a bachelor’s degree compared to the 30% of U.S born Americans. Donald Trump said Mexicans are criminals. There is more crime where Trump lives (New York) than on the Mexican border. The murder rate in NY has increased by 20% this year. In 2013, the Center for Investigative Reporting found that four in five arrests for drug smuggling involved U.S citizens.
Donald Trump said Mexicans are rapists. According to Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), 52% of rapists are middle aged white men. Donald Trumps ex wife, Ivana, accused him of rape but Trump’s lawyer says you can’t rape your spouse. Trump went through a painful scalp reduction surgery to remove a bald spot, and when he wasn’t pleased with it he blamed his wife. He pulled her hair, tore off her clothes, and put his penis inside her, even though they hadn’t had sex in over sixteen months. Ivana described this to her friends as rape. Donald Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen stated “You cannot rape your spouse. And there’s very clear case law.” Marital rape IS illegal in New York and is punished as a felony.
Donald Trump has posted many sexist tweets on his twitter. He tweeted at Hillary Clinton saying, “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” How does Bill Clinton’s actions correlate to how well Hillary can run America? Trump also tweeted in 2013 saying “26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?” The geniuses who put men and women together in the military expect them to behave and protect this country, not sexually assault each other.
Many of Donald Trump’s supporters excuse sexist and racist comments by stating “He knows how to make money which is what we need as president.” Trump has an immigration plan to deport 11 million people, revoke the 14th amendment, and build a wall on the Mexican border. Trump hasn’t explained how he plans to send 11 million people back to Mexico; does he plan to do this with planes or ships? The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency has estimated that it would cost $12,500 to deport one person, meaning it would cost around $137 billion to deport all 11 million people. Trump is always stating that Obama and America in general isn’t taking care of the veterans, so why doesn’t he use this money to help them instead of tearing families apart? Trump is also always saying how China is beating America, so why doesn’t he use this money for better education and jobs?
During the second GOP debate candidates were asked if they would feel comfortable with Trump’s fingers on the “nuclear codes.” Rand Paul answered with an excellent statement about Trump and his careless language. “Do we want someone with with that kind of character (Trump’s), that kind of careless language to be negotiating with Vladimir Putin? Do we want someone like that to be negotiating with Iran?” Imagine if Donald Trump made remarks about Putin like he did about the Mexican people. What kind of danger would he put America under with his careless character and language? Jeb Bush also answered this question saying “You can’t just talk about this stuff and insult leaders around the world and expect a good result.” Paul and Bush are absolutely right. Donald Trump will not accomplish anything if all he has to bring to the table are insults and lies.
