WASHINGTON/BLOOMINGTON, Ill — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump refused to take responsibility

Just what the GOP/Tea did last time they were in the White House. Is this still news that Trump simply doesn't care about anyone except Trump?

5 ( +8 / -3 )

The GOP left behind working class whites and Trump swung in and picked them all up. Some in the GOP are working actively against him and others are watching him Hulk smash the GOP and are happy to get behind him as long as the Democrats are his next target.

“I am an United States citizen. I am a Muslim,” she said. “What do I tell my 10-year-old son" - article

Madame, tell your son America loves your son.

Donald J. Trump has other ideas and the majority of Americans are ashamed that the Republican National Committee, the sanctioning body of the Republican Party, has welcomed a bigot and his hateful rhetoric into their "big tent".

Madame, your son is the real victim of Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump knows that and that is why his hatred is so offensive that it draws the condemnation, immediately and forcefully, of every American.

Madame, the hatred of Donald J. Trump shall not stand the test of the American electoral process.

Madame, America Loves your son. Gods Bless.

36 years of government since Reagan, run from the corporate board rooms, Wall Street and the central banks. The people are pissed off!

Why aren't you?

Why aren't you?

I think we all are.

But Trump is a corporate board room, wall-street guy, who has outsourced his manufacturing to other countries, and is one of the 1%. Yet somehow so many lower-intelligence people in the US seem to think he speaks for them.

The GOP left behind working class whites

What a bunch of BS! Obama's war on middle America and the coal, oil industries unwilling to take in the Keystone pipeline and out of control Democratic policies, regulations and tax rates has been crushing Americans in rural areas.

and Trump swung in and picked them all up.

That is very, very true.

Some in the GOP are working actively against him and others are watching him Hulk smash the GOP and are happy to get behind him as long as the Democrats are his next target.

Don't forget he has a lot of appeal to independent democrats as well and many of them are union supporters which Trump has a lot of as well.

The middle class has been shrinking for a very long time since the 1970s but at a much, more slower and less noticeable rate, but has been accelerating at a much faster pace over the last 7 years.

http://www.stltoday.com/business/local/the-obama-legacy-a-shrinking-middle-class/article_feede995-28ad-58dd-b736-6b955cebda3e.html

Obama's administration can take credit for stabilizing the U.S. economy, which is growing again and last year added jobs at the fastest clip since 1999.

But for the middle class the scars of the recession still run deep. Federal Reserve survey data show families in the middle fifth of the income scale now earn less and their net worth is lower than when Obama took office.

In the six years through 2013, over the recession and recovery that have spanned Obama's tenure, jobs have been added at the top and bottom of the wage scale, a Reuters analysis of labor statistics shows. In the middle, the economy has shed positions — whether in traditional trades like machining or electrical work, white-collar jobs in human resources, or technical ones like computer operators.

“I don’t accept responsibility.” Trump said - article

Just what the U.S. Constitution decrees. No responsibility.

The sad part? This silver spoon cry-baby is pretending interest in the Americans he sent their jobs to China to make his neck ties.

Trump's bigots only have one claim, they hate the same People Trump hates, the poor.

And everyone knows the poor are "dirty, dirty people."

Some tough guy President this racist is going to make.

That's one tough guy the United States can do without.

Do not become extremist and killing the Goose who has been giving him the golden egg each day. United States welcome and embrace any race, color, culture and religion. Your son should be grateful for the promised land which has given him liberty, freedom, decent living and high quality education.

Boston bombing younger brother is a medical student who will be destined to become the doctor. However he paid back with unthinkable crime to the nation which has given him so much generosity and kindness.

The people are pissed off!

Why aren't you?

Which people are you referring to? I know the hard of thinking don't understand the notion of spectrum, that it's much easier for them to see the world in terms of poles, or black and white, them and us. But the reality is there are more than 7 billion people in the world, 330,000,000 in the US alone, which should suggest to you that the 'people' have an array of beliefs. No doubt some are pissed, but no doubt many aren't, and I suspect there's a full range in between. If you're referring to your imagined community, i.e. those who are pissed, there are many anger management programmes in the US, as well as many 12 step progammes that might provide help. But first you have to admit you have a problem. For an Anglo-American to use an image of a Native American, the people your people decinated, does suggest a pretty serious anger problem.

Trump and his angry mob of Trumpites not only represent the worst of America--to the point of being outright traitors to our freedom and equality that makes this country great....he, and they, represent the worst of human kind: racist, violence loving, gun loving, obscenely selfish, childish, intellectually lazy empty little cockroaches who value money and power over intellect and human compassion.

When a protester interrupted his speech in Bloomington, Illinois, on Sunday minutes after it began, Trump derided him as a >>“disrupter” and told the cheering crowd, “Don’t worry about it - I don’t hear their voice.”

Of course because, he either ask his crowd to silence the guy (he will cover the legal fees anyway), or he does ask his militia to remove the guy manu militari.

Quick note: Is poster is comparing an innocent child of an American Citizen with the slaughter of April 15, 2013 at the Boston Marathon?

Did the poster actually intend to compare the article's reference to a Muslim Mom's concern for her ten year old child to the deliberate slaughter at Boston?

Isn't the article about “I don’t accept responsibility.” - Donald J. Trump?

Just what the U.S. Constitution decrees. No responsibility.

When has Obama cared about the constitution, let alone take responsibility for anything?

The sad part? This silver spoon cry-baby is pretending interest in the Americans he sent their jobs to China to make his neck ties.

Do you know how many jobs left under Obama and a lot more will be gone by the time he leaves office?

Trump's bigots only have one claim, they hate the same People Trump hates, the poor.

But what about the liberal bigots that feel Freedom of speech only applies to liberals and think they have a God given right to disrupt anyone they please?

And everyone knows the poor are "dirty, dirty people."

And yet, liberals want to increase MORE entitlements making these people dirtier.

Some tough guy President this racist is going to make.

Indeed, the MSM at all levels are giving Trump more free publicity than any candidate in history. And as you know for a media manipulator like Trump, all publicity is good publicity. The sheeple following his clarion blares for an authoritarian WASP nationalism are buying his simplistic memes, thanks in large part to the media coverage. Trump, as a member of the establishment who's sold overpriced steaks, booze, shoddy housing and bogus education to the masses, and who somehow managed to bankrupt a casino, has learned from PT Barnum, and unfortunately Goebbels, how to pied piper, in his words 'the poorly educated' and those who believe he's the last chance for WASP's to have an even firmer grip on control of both the US and the world.

The New Yorker defended his supporters and said he was considering helping pay the legal fees of a 78-year-old white man who punched a young black man at a Trump rally last week in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The man, Trump said, “got carried away.”

It's sad to think that this is typical of the kind of people who are supporting Trump; uneducated and trigger-happy rednecks who think all dark-skinned people are terrorists and rapists. After all, this 78-year-old man (John McGraw) said he thought that the man he punched could have been ISIS and that the next time he sees him, he'll have to kill him.

It's Trump's very words which have brewed hatred amongst his followers against not only illegal immigrants, but even legal born and raised in America citizens who just happen to be Muslim, black, Asian, and Hispanic, since his followers will just shoot and never stop to ask "Are you a legal law-abiding citizen?" first. In fact, he's already instructing his followers to attack all those who would even question his ideals.

“I don’t accept responsibility.” Trump said - article

Let the fair minded reader take pause.

The only body who must take responsibility is the Republican National Committee, Senator Cruz and Senator Rubio.

Donald J. Trump has run his racist 'birther' campaign since 2011.

Flatly put, if the Republican National Committee, Senator Cruz and Senator Rubio refuse to censure the grotesque prejudice of Donald J. Trump, they are accomplices.

So, get over the indignation. Get over the obvious racism, prejudice and ignorance.

If the RNC and the members of the United States Senate accept Donald J. Trump, they are the cause of whatever follows.

Make Donald J. Trump pay his own way to harvesting the racial and religious prejudice his has planted.

Anything else is acceptance of the racism, prejudice and ignorance of Donald J. Trump.

The Republican/Tea Party has their choice, it is racism or the United States Constitution.

Let the Republican/Tea decide, no one can make that choice for them.

Trump is in or out and the GOP/Tea must, at long last, accept responsibility for their actions and decisions.

And, for gods sake they all cry they love, stop tormenting the children of all the American People with Donald J. Trump's hatred. The decision is called "The Party of Personal Responsibility".

Will the GOP/Tea damn America and Americans to the GOP/Tea destruction because disaster is just good business?

Or, in the end, is it the slaughter of children preferable to the moral choice to stop Donald J. Trump's hatred for decency and those he personally deems unworthy of the status of a human being and American Citizen?

Quick Note: Those who ask, "How would a Censure work?"

If the RNC, Senator Cruz and Senator Rubio simply bar Donald J. Trump, Trump would have to sponsor and front his own debate with himself, and at his own cost.

Let the RNC, Senators Rubio and Cruz prove to the American People, and the World, they are condemning Donald J. Trump's racism, religious prejudice and offensive policy of Torture.

Will they? They will not.

They are accomplices.

The way to personality responsibility is clear, the GOP/Tea would rather a bigot than decency and the proof is Donald J. Trump's every appearance under the banner of the Republican Party. Shame on all of them.

Later, the billionaire businessman spotted a man whose voice he did want to hear, a supporter wearing a T-shirt reading “Legal immigrants for Trump.” The candidate brought the man on stage to address the crowd briefly.

Hey, I kinda' like that slogan -"Legal immigrants for Trump." & Trump reciprocates with courtesy.

chanting slogans such as “Hey ho, Donald Trump must go.”

Sounds like a "Naughty by Nature" hip-hop cover . . . the main chorus goes, "Hey- ho, hey-ho . . . " Not very creative.

The Chicago clashes followed several weeks of violence at Trump events

Earlier in Vandalia, Ohio, the Secret Service swarmed Trump because some protesters were about to throw tomatoes at him. Stay classy Left, stay classy-

The best part of being a racist?

The racist already doesn't care who they harm because they are beyond moral reasoning.

Let's listen in on Donald J. Trump: “I don’t accept responsibility” - Donald J. Trump

Let us take a moment to inspect Donald J. Trump who accepts no responsibility for anything he has ever done.

Trump demands those who differ from his racism should "have their lives ruined forever." (We will read more on this in days to come.)

For now, the reader may wish to consider a previous suggestion.

Let the RNC, Senators Rubio and Cruz prove to the American People, and the World, they are condemning Donald J. Trump's racism, religious prejudice and offensive policy of Torture.

Why would the RNC and two United States Senators act as if they are powerless to censure Donald J. Trump?

Why would the Republican Party act as if they have no say in expelling Donald J. Trump from their "debates"?

The international reader knows that the RNC has iron clad power in anything that represents the Republican Party. Let it rest then that the RNC has decided to accept Trump's racism since they are powerless to control Donald J. Trump's bigot bands and religious prejudice.

Ask yourself then: 'What possible limit is there if this racist bigot were to ascend to the Office of the President of the United States?

Let us answer this in an observation from history: "No Democracy can Long Last When It's Citizens remain Deaf, Dumb and Mute." That goes double for the Republican National Committee, Senator Cruz and Senator Rubio who have the power yet remain like the three monkeys, deaf, dumb and blind to Trump's racism.

The Whole World is Watching. What will the Republican/Tea do? (Likely cheer bigots as the have since Reagan)

Is poster is comparing an innocent child of an American Citizen with the slaughter of April 15, 2013 at the Boston Marathon?

Of course! Every murderous villain was born as innocent child. No one was born with blood on their hands. Boston bombing younger brother has baby face. He is shy, gentle, well educated and studying medicine in US. However he has been brain washed and radicalized by his elder brother. Who knows whether that child will be radicalized by extremists or not in the future?

Did the poster actually intend to compare the article's reference to a Muslim Mom's concern for her ten year old child to the deliberate slaughter at Boston

Muslim Mon has freedom to choose the place for raising and educating her own child. Although USA is not perfect, she has more freedom and rights to express her opinions. The problem is there is some victim mentality among some immigrants. Freedom of expression is two way streets. She can not say Donald Trump should not tell something she does not want to hear. If she does not like his policy, she does not need to vote him as citizen.

They should wave those flags in Mexico. Make Mexico great again.

Quick Note: On heynong Mar. 14, 2016 - 12:21PM JST, poster acknowledges: "Every murderous villain was born as innocent child."

Let the reader also consider, the argument that one might harm does not mean all will harm and what harm is there in prejudice when poster states: "Who knows whether that child will be radicalized by extremists or not in the future?"

Word to the wise: poster is saying all who are under suspicion are potential murderers and deserve the prejudice against them.

Let the poster ponder their prejudice, as we all should.

Peace isn't an option, it is a necessity.

Donald J. Trump demands prejudice and hate. What do you demand? Think about it.

Some parts of USA were belong to Mexico before. Although Mexico has lost some territories, Mexican population has been ever increasing due to the low birth rate of Americans.

I guess there are more Spanish speaking residents in some area of US. Trump is correct to say that illegal immigration will make US gradually becoming the Disunited States.

Trump does not hate Mexicans. In fact he love them like him family. He will save the lives of Mexicans who have risked their lives for crossing the border. USA needs the large grate wall like China.

"John McGraw, was charged with assault and later with communicating a threat after he said he enjoyed hitting “that loudmouth” and threatened next time “to kill him.” - article

Donald J. Trump is not in control of anything, a poor example of leadership.

If the Republican National Committee, Senators Rubio and Cruz accept Trump's racism, they are all responsible for the consequences.

As a tangent: Republicans are 100% responsible to determine their membership and the conditions of membership.

How is it the GOP/Tea is suddenly powerless to control the most destructive elements of their own 'Party'?

Maybe destruction is the game plan of the GOP/Tea?

Trump has demanded Torture, is that the same as the GOP/Tea demanding torture?

Is Trump's torture a temporary torture, or is it that the GOP/Tea is thankful that they don't have to front Torture, again, as they did under George W. Bush at Abu Ghraib?

Americans should get it straight. Trump demands torture, religious prejudice and knows nothing of the assaults committed at his 'Loyalty Rallies'? The whole world is watching, there is no place to hide racism, torture and ignorance. The GOP/Tea must act or again be responsible for their choices. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

That's all fine and dandy, but where does their loyalty lay? With Mexico or the being a US citizen and residing in the United States of America. America is their bread and butter.

This is why its insulting to wave Mexican flags. California was once Mex., but NOT no more.

It takes a thief to catch a thief"... Or in the case of Trump vs The Establishment "it takes a sociopath to take down sociopaths."

It is a fact of psychology that sociopaths make the best surgeons, they can slice off limbs, cut open hearts and patch people up without flinching -- not phased by the sight of blood. American democracy needs some serious surgery and Trump is the sociopathic doctor that America needs.

@zenpun, look for a movie that BYU student Steven Greenstreet made during the 2004 election season called A State Divided. It's a fascinating case study.

It is about competing guest speakers at a college in Utah: Sean Hannity and Michael Moore, their supporters and detractors, and the extremes that a few individuals went to in an attempt to shut down free speech. Ultimately, it was a GOP businessman and his attempt to pay $25,000 to cancel the Moore speech, followed by his lawsuit against the student government forcing the resignation of the student council vice president, that created the most obvious chilling effect on freedom of speech.

That was just one case of attempted bribery and abusing the court system. Too bad with the dependence on dark money, hidden from the cameras, we don't get informed about who is paying what to whom until much later or never.

Very good question!

Your surgeon crackpot general is now supporting Trump. Who are you supporting now? Are you prepared to feed live mice to Ted?

I'll tell you who I'm NOT supporting and that's Hillary, Cruz and Sanders.

Donald J. Trump has run his racist 'birther' campaign since 2011.

Can you prove that he's a racist? No, I didn't think so.

Flatly put, if the Republican National Committee, Senator Cruz and Senator Rubio refuse to censure the grotesque prejudice of Donald J. Trump, they are accomplices.

So you want to block FREE speech, that's nice, even liberal hate speech is FREE speech.

So, get over the indignation. Get over the obvious racism, prejudice and ignorance.

How do you feel that over 91% of Whites don't associate or have Black friends? You don't find that disturbing and in that 91%, I'm quite sure, they're not all conservative.

If the RNC and the members of the United States Senate accept Donald J. Trump, they are the cause of whatever follows.

I said the same thing 7 years ago.

Make Donald J. Trump pay his own way to harvesting the racial and religious prejudice his has planted.

One of the groups left behind is African-Americans. Their unemployment rate, 8.8 percent, is more than double the rate for whites, 4.3 percent, and is actually closer to the 9 percent unemployment rates whites experienced in the depths of the recession. And for blacks, the rate actually went up last month.

So in Obama's racist entitlement world, doesn't that bother you deeply? It bothers me that the largest group of Obama supporters has been hit hardest by this guys economical policies.

Anything else is acceptance of the racism, prejudice and ignorance of Donald J. Trump.

But what about the racism of the Democrats and of this president?

The Republican/Tea Party has their choice, it is racism or the United States Constitution.

Hmmm, the racial divide has worsened under a racist president that said and boasted that he was a healer and a unifier. Couldn't be further from the truth.

Let the Republican/Tea decide, no one can make that choice for them.

But you guys want to block FREE speech, right?

Trump is in or out and the GOP/Tea must, at long last, accept responsibility for their actions and decisions.

I think that would be the voters, not the party or did you not notice there is a little disagreement within the establishment GOP.

And, for gods sake they all cry they love, stop tormenting the children of all the American People with Donald J. Trump's hatred. The decision is called "The Party of Personal Responsibility".

Seriously, can you prove the man is a blatant racist and don't go by the things he says, that is not concrete evidence that would beyond a shadow of a doubt conclude that Trump is a racist.

Will the GOP/Tea damn America and Americans to the GOP/Tea destruction because disaster is just good business?

The country is pretty much on its knees already after a merciless, agonizing 7 years!

Or, in the end, is it the slaughter of children preferable to the moral choice to stop Donald J. Trump's hatred for decency and those he personally deems unworthy of the status of a human being and American Citizen?

Dude, when I drive through LA and see kids in gangs, starving, stealing, killing each other, I feel terrible that the first Black president could have made a difference in these kids lives and what did he do the whole time, worry too much about the next election and forcing people to adopt his radical policies by his will or by the stroke of a pen and his veto power. Only 239 more days until the madness of this racist president is beyond us.

Watching the Dems town hall now. An organic restaurant owner asked a good question about fracking spoiling the land. Hillary couldn't tell the truth and honestly say that "the federal government has no control over fracking, it's the states that make the rules", but she spun it and called for more regulations, and ended it with a rising speech which has reminded me of Hitler. Trump speaks the truth, something Hitler never did. Hillary is closer to that Nazi pig than anyone else running for president.

Trump speaks the truth

Only when he's talking to someone who wants to hear it. Then when he's talking to someone who wants to hear the opposite of the truth, he says that. Or in other words, he just panders to whomever he's talking to, saying what he thinks they want to hear.

The only real truth is that we have no idea what Trump thinks is the truth, because he's about as consistent someone with constipation. Which he often looks like he has.

Only to the true believers (thank you Eric Hoffer) in his trumpery, the sheeple who refuse to admit that he contradicts himself repeatedly and flat out lies, the sheeple who think he's the saviour they've been waiting for to make America great again and save them from their demons, among them the CFR, IMF and all bankers, Tories, Republicans, Democrats, international communists, OPEC, the military-industrial complex, the Royal British Legion, the American Legion, Masons, the Illuminati, as well as their interlocking directorates. And especially to those true believers who refuse to believe he's a leader of the WASP nabob establishment.

Trump speaks the truth,

Uh, no he doesn't. He has told so many lies in his campaign, I lost count. For instance, Trump claims that he has lost "hundreds of friends" in the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, yet fails to recall the names of even one.

In addition, no one can recall ever seeing Trump at any memorial, or event to remember it since then. In addition, Trump claims that he witnessed first-hand the attack from Trump Tower. LOL!

Trump also claims he saw thousands of people celebrating the 9/11 disaster in the streets, which the New York police department has firmly refuted.

Trump also once said that Obama wants to take in 250,000 refugees from Syria. Everyone knows that the actual number is around 10,000.

Furthermore, Trump claimed that 81 percent of all white murders are committed by black people, but in reality, 80 percent of white murders are committed by white people.

In conclusion, Trump has been the master of lying in so many ways. Even going so far as to make up quotes and imaginary statistics bureaus.

But Trump is a corporate board room, wall-street guy, who has outsourced his manufacturing to other countries, and is one of the 1%. Yet somehow so many lower-intelligence people in the US seem to think he speaks for them.

This bears posting again for all those angry white voters out there who want to lash out at someone because, to be perfectly honest, the top 1% deigned (Trump's crowd) to not share their obscenely monumental chunk of the American pie with them in the form of raises, reinvestment into infrastructure, and keeping American manufacturing jobs in America.

Angry white folks have allowed themselves to be hustled by a consummate hustler who is as rich and establishment-entrenched as anyone could possibly hope to be, and even knowing this, they still pledge their support to Trump's substance-less bluster and B.S.

Making Mexico pay for a wall across the southern border -- It will never happen.

Banning Muslims from entering the country? - Never going to happen.

Bringing back American jobs from China? -- Good luck, but the very CEOs Trump rubs elbows with at the golf club are most definitely not on board. And he knows it.

Bring back American jobs from Japan? -- America didn't lose any jobs to Japan. Morons.

Ignorant morons, the lot of them.

On the bright side, Trump supporters are giving social and political scientists a front row seat to learning firsthand how Germans helped a sociopathic loon like Hitler rise to power.

Win or lose, the GOP will never be the same after Trump, if it even exists at all. Any progress America has made in race relations will effectively be set back 50 years now that some 40% of conservative voters have been mistaken led to believe openly racist jerks is magically okay again. It's not and won't ever be, whether Trump gets the nomination or not.

It's gotten to a point where Trump has forgotten which things he's said were lies and which was a truth. He just conveniently backtracks or denies when it is convenient for him to do so. He also conveniently calls others liars when they point out the truths for him. For example:

He denies ever going bankrupt, yet it is documented that he did in both 1991 and 2009.

He denies ever calling John McCain a loser, yet he actually did in a "He's not a war hero" speech.

He also claims that he personally knows Russian president Vladimir Putin, based on a 60 minutes episode they did together, when it was actually two separate interviews they did in two separate locations.

He also claims that he completely is self-funding his campaign, when he is actually using a lot of donations.

He claims he won the youth vote in the state of Nevada, when he actually didn't.

He also recently said that we would be better off if Muammar Gaddafi was still in charge of Libya, when he actually stated in a 2011 video that America should take him out.

Trump will win. If he doesn't, I'm joining Russia as a freaking SPY when Russia and the US duke it out in WW3. And I'll help to bring the US and its NATO buddies to their knees. Hillary is a pawn of NATO. For half a century NATO has been taunting Russia, surrounding Russia with missile "defense." Time for the Bear to swat the nose of the mongrel dog.

That's a lot of people to wager a bet on. Generalizing again, are we?

I'd also wager these idiots wouldn't have the first idea what being a Muslim entails.

But liberals do? So what about Whites not knowing the first thing about Blacks 91% is an awfully high number. So you are saying 91% of Whites don't know anything about Blacks and in that mix, there are a few that don't understand about what Islam really means. Wow!

I suppose Trump will take responsibility for the Leftist groups inciting violence and trying to charge at and physically harm Trump as-soon-as Clinton takes responsibility for endangering America's national security.

I think the ability of politicians to flat out lie or obfuscate when asked direct questions about their mistakes is the most infuriating thing about modern politics. We know Trump has no shame. But when did mainstream politicians like Clinton change whereby no misdeed causes them to think of the greater good?

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

I think less and less people think this about Obama except for the people who hate Obama just because he's not white. Proof: Obama's popularity is at a high and some say he could win the presidency if a third term were allowed. Yes, there will always be Bundies and white supremacists who think Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya. You can't change that (the same goes for people who literally believe in the Jesus zombie story). But their numbers are small compared to people in touch with reality. With that in mind- are there enough white voters with this mindset to put Trump in the WH?

1 ( +2 / -1 )

"Going on an apologetic tour to the Muslim world" You are afraid of and hate Muslims compounded by the fact that you hate having a non-white president, compounded by the fact that you are convinced that Obama is the antichrist, compounded by the fact that you are convinced that Obama is a Kenyan born Muslum. This is why you escaped to Japan and became Japanese.

The Iran deal was good as Colin Powell (a Republican) declared. Things there are starting to change for the positive slowly.

"He may not be a Muslim" Why are you saying this now when you said firmly you believe Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya?

@Bass

Try this. The Islam-loving president said:

"But let me quote from the Koran....The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam" and that the Koran is far more beautiful in the original Arabic. Do you think people saying this proves he knows Arabic and venerates this text or do you think he was just being diplomatic?

"Ramadan commemorates the revelation of the Holy Koran to the Prophet Mohammed"

The second quote was taken by some Christians as an affront. Christians don't believe in the revelation to Mohammed and the Koran in not holy. Some people said only a believing Muslim could honestly say this. Does this give you the sense he could be a Muslim or was he just being diplomatic?

You are aware that the quotes I gave you are from George W Bush, aren't you? I could go on with a lot more and his continual courting of Muslim leaders in the US and abroad. He was criticised by many for bending over backwards in the name of this faith.

"Some people said only a believing Muslim could honestly say this. Does this give you the sense he could be a Muslim or was he just being diplomatic?"

"Hmmmm....."

I must admit, I had a 'hmmmmm...' about that one. How could a devout Christian say this? Is he really a Christian? So, that 'hmmm......" would apply to George W Bush? If not, why the double standards?

What might those actions be? Did Trump pummel someone into submission? Yeah, Trump is strong on the language, heavy to be exact, but that certainly doesn't make him a racist.

In addition to being a flat-out liar and racist, Trump is proving to also be lacking in common sense when it comes to diplomacy and simple economics. Take for example his outlandish idea of raising tariffs on imports from Mexico and China. According to him, raising tariffs will help to alleviate the trade imbalances between these countries. Yet, he doesn't realize that the reason why there is an imbalance is because Americans want to buy these products. Doesn't he understand that he'll just end up hurting the American consumer by raising tariffs? It just proves that he only cares about "America" and not the "American people".

He also claims that he could build a 1,000 mile wall, 35 to 40 feet in the air, made of precast concrete slabs, between the U.S. and Mexico for a mere 10 billion dollars. Yet, even construction experts say that it would be impossible to do that; unless he plans to hire cheap immigrant labor; which would be very ironic to say the least.

He also claims that the U.S. has the highest taxes in the world. I'm no economist or financial expert, but even I think that's a whole lot of baloney. I guess he hasn't had a chance to live in some European countries in his life.

This comment is ridiculous. If someone's racist comments don't prove they a racist, then what does? You are trying to set a bar so high that no one could ever be shown to be racist, and yet, there are clearly racist people out there. And Trump has proven himself to be one of them with his words.

I don't really watch any of the debates, but let's say it becomes Hillary vs Trump:

Trump also once said that Obama wants to take in 250,000 refugees from Syria. Everyone knows that the actual number is around 10,000.

Like the above example I'm looking forward to the fact war between them and I will watch those debates. Clinton is going to tear into Trump with real facts. It will be interesting. I mean what is Trump going to say when he is asked why he thinks that Obama is a Kenyan born Muslim antichrist who faked his US passport? He also thinks that Apple will move their jobs back from China.

Well, if you want Trump and he is elected it will be like having the class clown as high school president. It will be entertaining and I look forward to watching him cuss out his non friendlies on CNN while I'm chewing on my popcorn. It will be entertaining.

"They should be having debates with all candidates (right and left) now, not after the leaders have been chosen."

Pretty weak to be trying to draw a line between the surname of a guy accused of a crime in Japan and illegal immigration in the USA. Equally weak to pretend that sort of specious logic 'is the same b.s. reasoning that Trump and his blind sheep have'.

Care to admit it or not, illegal immigration is a problem. Its illegal. Many illegal immigrants are involved in criminal activity because they are illegal. This problem is not limited to the USA. Europe is undergoing an extreme meltdown under the wave of 'refugees' (fleeing wars started, financed and prolonged by ... you know who). Merkel is about to be dusted. Right wing parties are surging in popularity all over the EU using rhetoric that would make Trump blush. And this is the EU, you know, supposedly more civilized and decent and tolerant than 'buffoons' like Trump.

The left can keep burying their heads in the sand on issues like this, but the silent majority is fed up with all the social engineering, and the destruction of culture that it creates. Immigration is of course fine and normal but there are procedures to be followed - particularly in the age of terrorism. Those who do not follow the rules need to be arrested and returned from whence they came. No excuses, no sob stories.

The fact that the UK cannot even deport known hate preachers and convicted violent criminals from their country (a breach of their 'human rights' don't you know) under order of Brussels, should be all the wake up call necessary. Yet somehow there are folks who still don't get it.

Refugees going through the official process are actually very safe.

all the social engineering

And speaking of social engineering. All those "crime stories" in Europe on social media committed by refugees, foreigners, and the like were fabrications created by the European Trumpees who just hate them. There were so many of these false engineered stories going around on social media it caught the attention of the mainstream news. But nothing ever panned out. They they were reported as lies as the main media had to backtrack and report them as such.

And the left? What's this? Because the right is not going to do anything radically different. In fact Reagan inked 3M green card amnesty. And even if Trump is elected he admitted he will let lots of immigrants in to do the jobs that Americans can't. Trump has no plan to be the friend of the white man. He's just making his sales pitch to them in order to be elected president.

Care to admit it or not, illegal immigration is a problem. Its illegal.

Yes, illegal immigration is a problem, but Trump's solution of building an extremely expensive wall to keep out Mexicans crossing the border, and kicking out all Muslims whether they be legal citizens or not, is not the answer. Yet, Trump insists that hatred against all Muslims, Hispanics, Asians, and blacks is the right course of action to take. Trump would rather carpet-bomb everything and not care about innocents getting caught in it than do the hard work of fighting evil within the laws set forth by our founding fathers. He doesn't even care about establishment Republicans and will lie and cheat and kill as long as he gets his way.

Trump's campaign has emboldened a lot of closet racists to step out

And obama's whole "change" thing emboldened people to expect this and that for free. Whereas the Trump campaign has acted like a wake up call. He keeps winning, fair & square. So why is everyone so butt-hurt about?

Are you referring to the same process that the San Bernardino terrorists used to get into the US?

@SuperLib

Poor white people are always just trash in the eyes of the political Left. Terrible people with no redeeming qualities. They are so putrid they deserve to be denied equal treatment under the law via government sponsored affirmative action racism. The left doesn't hear these poor people's voices because they have written them off. It is clear that Obama see many white Americans that way. Just a bunch of hillbillies clinging to their guns and religion. Imagine if Trump had called inner city blacks "superpredators"? Of course Trump didn't say that. Hillary did. And of course she isn't at all racist right!

"Poor white people are always just trash in the eyes of the political Left." Yes, the bundies

"Just a bunch of hillbillies clinging to their guns" Again, Bundies living in tents and pooping in potholes while faithfully following their cult leader Mr. Bundy (and lots of them are under arrest)

You are right. That is how the left sees them.
