I’m Worried If Trump Triumphs?

I’m Worried If Trump Triumphs? May 20, 2016

I’m afraid Donal Trump is going to be president of the United States of America. It almost nauseates me saying it. I have blogged about this months before. Back then, I didn’t think it could happen. Now, polls show he has gone from having no chance to win against Hilary Clinton in the general election to being tied with her. He’s got the momentum. He’s like a steam roller heading straight for White House, and Hilary Clinton is in his way. Look out Hilary! She says she won’t do any mud slinging against him. But he will. And Trump is much more charismatic than she, which she admits. He’s somewhat of an entertainer. And he’s going to turn up the fire a notch when he continues to accuse Hilary of enabling husband Bill’s past philandering. No telling what Clinton dirty laundry Trump might tell the American public. Yet I doubt that the Donald’s laundry is any cleaner.

I think Donald Trump is not qualified to be U.S. president. He certainly would be a sorry role model. He’s so narcissistic and bombastic. He speaks so ill of other people. He can be quite degrading to women. You can’t believe him half the time. He often calls people liars, and it’s the pot calling the kettle black. He’s like a big fish flip flopping around on various issues. For example, he said he would reveal his income tax returns, as other candidates for president have done for decades; but now he says he won’t and that “it’s none of your business.” I think Donald Trump is a big bag of hot air ready to blow up like the Hindenburg blimp if he becomes U.S. president.

I’m worried for this country if Donald Trump becomes president. A lot of leaders of foreign countries don’t like him and think he would be a terrible president for the U.S. One is David Cameron, prime minister of the United Kingdom, the #1 ally of the U.S. The one foreign leader I know of who says he likes Trump, even though I guess he hasn’t met him, is Russia’s former KFB guy and now president again, Vladimir Putin. Oh, that’s just great! Talk about a government leader who can’t be trusted.

There’s talk about foreign governments and individual foreign investors in American securities, especially U.S. government Treasuries, selling all such investments if Trump becomes U.S. president. I wonder how much that could affect our financial well being. If it happens, it will be because people are worried about what Trump will do. He’s such an unknown commodity when it comes to being a government leader and having a foreign policy. About all you can do is go by all of his bombastic statements: build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and make Mexico pay for it, deport all 11 million illegal immigrants here, check all Muslims entering this country, impose huge trade tariffs on China that would certainly start a tariff war, and get the U.S. out of the United Nations. I think that last one could be the second worst of all even though it has not gotten much print in the U.S. Isolation–just what we need. And then there is Trump’s constant claim that he’s more “militaristic” than any American politician. Oh, that’s great. Set the Doomsday Clock at a minute to midnight if Mr. Trump has his finger on the nuclear button. The Trump list of such harsh and ridiculous statements goes on and on.

All American voters should read the article in today’s New York Times entitled “Experts Find Several Flaws in Trump’s Plan for a Wall.” One such expert is Michael Chertoff, the secretary of Homeland Security during the George W. Bush’s administration. Chertoff actually increased immigration enforcement significantly. Ye says of Trump’s plan to deport 11 million illegal immigrants in this country, “It ain’t happening.” I think the wall could happen, regardless of Trump. But finding 11 million illegals, getting the approval of courts to deport them, and then keeping those out who will be trying to return to their families here that have citizenship, would be utter chaos. Plus, many are from other countries than our next-door neighbor Mexico, so the U.S. would have to bear the cost of flying them to their previous homelands. All of this activity would cause the Border Patrol and other government agencies to “take their eye off the ball,” which is keeping drub smugglers, other criminals, and especially terrorists out of this country. To use Donald Trump’s overworked word, it would be a total “disaster.”

According to polls, Donald Trump is not liked by most Americans. But it’s no better with former First Lady and Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton. It’s looking like if these two presumptive nominees of their political parties wind up being our choices in the presidential election this November, most voters will cast their ballot for one of them mostly to prevent the other one from being president. What a sorry state of affairs. I might be one of them, or else I won’t vote.
