Why Trump Will Win

Trump Rhetoric

Trump’s rhetoric is sometimes so polarizing, it’s deafening.  I will not defend Donald Trump’s words, but I will elaborate on the hot button topics that he has created media storms with during his Presidential campaign.  A cliche saying that I’ve been very guilty of several times in my own life, which is, “Great initiative, bad judgement”.  This is how I see Trump and his delivery of message on key issues that he is very passionate about.

The Immigration Firestorm Comments

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some I assume are good people.”

This provocative, and not too well delivered statement, caused a FIRESTORM in the media.  There were protests all over California, more than likely, by some percentage of demonstrators that were yes, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, and it spread across the Country like wildfire.  Ask yourself the question- in an unbiased and non-judgmental way:  “Did Donald Trump willingly slander an entire race of people that should be unforgivable?”

Here is my take on it-

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us.”

<< This comment.  This comment is 100% accurate.  It is undeniable that the illegal immigrants are bringing their health related issues, not only causing problems in our health sector, but potentially with mental illness, doing harm to our citizens.

“They’re bringing drugs.”

<< This comment.  Yes folks, they’re bringing drugs.  Are most Mexicans that are coming across the border smuggling drugs for the cartels?  Absolutely not.  Well, a very, very small percentage would be.  So the statement is accurate.  One would only assume that our Border Patrol that has captured truck loads of people breaching our border, has confiscated drugs with them in lieu of payment up front in order to transport them to break the law and enter our Country illegally.

“They’re bringing crime.”

<< This comment.  Yes folks, it’s true.  They’re bringing CRIME.  How do you think they survive when they get here?  Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats can’t identify them straightaway as voters, they have to find their way into the system and survive.  The keyword here is survive.  They have come from an unthinkable place, supposedly very bad, and they have the drive to want a better life and if they don’t get work upon arriving, guess what… more than likely they’ll steal to feed themselves and their families.  But it goes beyond that initial law breaking incident upon first arrival.  Here are some facts that you may or may not be aware of:

  • Between 2008 and 2014, 40% of all murder convictions in Florida were criminal aliens. In New York it was 34% and Arizona 17.8%.
  • During those years, criminal aliens accounted for 38% of all murder convictions in the five states of California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and New York, while illegal aliens constitute only 5.6% of the total population in those states.
  • That 38% represents 7,085 murders out of the total of 18,643.

“They’re rapists.”

 <<  This comment.  I cannot condone this comment.  He was speaking of statistics that he had drawn upon to START the discussion on this topic, and well, I cannot defend it.  He should not have generalized in that way, he should have said “Some of them are rapists”, because they ARE.

“And some I assume are good people.”

 <<  This comment.  I agree with this comment.  The definition of some: An unspecified amount.  So with this said, I would have said “And most of them, alot of them, are good people, but even though those people may be good people, they still have to come in legally.”

John McCain

He’s not a war hero,” Trump said at the Iowa Family Leadership Summit when moderator Frank Luntz brought up McCain, who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Donald Trump won’t call John McCain a war hero
Immediately modifying his original remarks, Trump said, “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”

“Perhaps he’s a war hero, but right now he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people,” Trump said.

—–  That’s quite a mouthful.  Personally, I believe any and all veterans are heroes.  Entering boot camp and engaging in the commitment to protect your Country is a duty and an honor, and I believe personally that all are heroes.  However, there is a very vast definition of hero and it all boils down to perception.  When someone demonstrates an act of bravery, which award are they awarded?  The military has an abundance of awards from medals to certificates of merit.  John McCain did receive a Navy Commendation Medal for a close air mission in heavy fire for leadership.  Possibly Donald Trump did not know this and was only referencing with his comments that McCain only received awards after he was returned from being a prisoner of war.  The personal opinion of whether or not someone is, or isn’t, a hero, is just that- their opinion.  I respect Mr. Trump’s opinion, even though I personally disagree with it.


Megan Kelly-  Not worth mentioning to be honest.  I see that as a rude comment that had no malice and Megan Kelly isn’t the angel journalist from above that fought to get where she’s at with the Fox News organization.

Carly Fiorina-  “That face.”  <<  This comment.  Eh, I can defend it.  I do believe that his speaking to the reporter and it was referenced in a bad light.  I can say “That face.  Yes, her face, does not look Presidential.  I wouldn’t trust it, there’s something about it, that I just don’t like.”  That’s my comment on it.  I’m not running for President of the United States, but it’s still roughly the same comment.


The Ban On All Muslim Immigrants

“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

This comment wasn’t spoken in an interactive off the cuff scenario in an interview or at a rally.  It was first published on his website in the form of a press release, which is where I copied it from for this post.  Do I agree with the comment?  No, I don’t agree with the comment because there isn’t a way to perform vetting in a manner that isn’t discriminatory against religion.  HOWEVER, I DO AGREE that there should be a pause, temporary in nature, for as long as it takes, to prevent ANY and ALL immigrants traveling from KNOWN TERRORIST STATES into our Country.

I am actually appalled at the amount of heat that he took for this stance.  Even after he walked it back, the Republican candidates pounced on him and ya know what, now THEY are ALL talking about what is needed, and that is a PAUSE until our stupid leaders, can find a solution.  The White House commenting on this issue and when the Press Secretary comes out and states that he should be disqualified from becoming President for making the statement- really?  I mean… REALLY?  Are you KIDDING ME?  The amount of incompetence running rampant in an administration that is really unfit to “lead” our great Nation.  And all the while, the Democrat Presidential Candidate is under investigation and Mr. Trump should be disqualified?  Ah-contraire, Mr. Press Secretary as well as the other leading talking heads in the White House- Mr. Trump, again, has started a talking point on not only an important issue, but THE ISSUE that is now driving the Presidential race and the #1 concern of the citizens of our great Nation!

Trump delivered this in his press release on this proposal and followed up in a speech at a rally that night and two days later, the TERROR attack at San Bernardino happened.  This tragedy, now that we are finding out more details, could have and SHOULD HAVE been avoided through “proper vetting” as the White House has ‘comforted us’ in their capabilities that they can perform it to the highest standards (I say that they CANNOT) and WOULD HAVE been avoided had a policy been put into place like that of the one that Mr. Trump shared.

The President.  The President of the United States.  The arrogant President of the United States, scoffed at Trump and the Republicans asking if they were scared of women and children.  Hello Mr. President.  Your silence on mockery would be funny to me, if this were not such a serious matter.

The bottom line is I do not agree with the way that Mr. Trump proposed it, but I agree with the broad picture of what it would do- and that is KEEP AMERICA SAFER.
