Are you serious?

TrumpI have tried my best not to make comment on this man, l really tried…..but this is just way to much to keep my mouth shut.

When Donald Trump announced he was running for president, I laugh. I personally thought he was joking and even the media took him as such. We all felt he was just expressing his constitutional right of “Freedom of Speech” and left it at that.

As the hours, turned into days and months, now we are closer to our election for President of the United States, I really have to say “Are you serious? Eh? Really?”

Trump doesn’t understand what is Foreign Policy ( am not sure if he knows how to spell it). So lets just start with a few things he has says…..

  • Let the Mexican pay for the wall

Okay, that is nice. However; cartel, smugglers do not cross the Rio Grande anymore, they make tunnels. So making the Mexican pay for a wall to stop this action is not going to help.

  • Bring American Companies back from overseas.

That is nice too. However; the republicans themselves were the one that cut the incentive for this companies to stay here and force them to go overseas and acquired cheap labor and huge profits. Something, they may not be too happy to leave behind.

  • Repeal Obamacare

This one he did get me to agree somewhat. However; We should be allowed the american public to decided on their insurance and we should be able not to be penalized for not having insurance we cannot afford. The problem is people not being able to afford medical coverage, why? Because of these large corporation hiking the price of medicine, medical care, abolishing pre-existing conditions and setting deductibles that are outrages. Do not blame the un-insurance for these hikes, blame the insured for wasting and over using the systems.

  • Abortion

You are wrong. Why? Abortion is a very touchy subject like religion. Trump should had never touch this one. Yet, he love to put his foot in his mouth. This should be a choice between the woman and her doctor. There are too many variables into this:

  1. Rape
  2. Incest
  3. Health
  4. Financial

Why bring a child to a world were it can suffer, that is just wrong.

  • Overall Immigration

Recently, Trump made the statement that all Muslim should be deported or just ban from entering the United States, with the exemption of his Wealthy Muslims Friends. Wow! that is really showing diplomacy there.

  • Hatred

For what I can see, all that Mr. Trump is infusing, is just pure hatred inside the United States. This great nation was built by the blood and sweat of immigrants who came to this country for a better life, to be able to practice their believes (religions) without persecution, to be able to prosper, their hope and dreams, overall of a better life for them and their children.

  • Terrorism

Yes, I can understand his point. We are all worried and scared. Our nation was attacked back on 9/11. It was devastating. As a New Yorker, myself I was angry and hurt when those towers when down. A lot of people died that day, and yes! The terrorist need to pay for what they did and continued doing all over the world. We do need to make them understand we are not a nation to recon with, but not by his means. We are a nation of peace and justice and that is why we are so great.


“Please understand, I am not in favor or against Mr. Trump. I wish him the best in his endeavor. If he feels he is the man qualify for the job of the Presidency that is his opinion. My objective is to inform and understand his policies and as an American decided on November 8th, who I place my trust to represent me for the next 4 years. You should do the same. When the smoke clears we need a great man or woman to hold that office with pride and justice for the liberty of the people.”
