With the US Presidential elections coming closer day by day, and the US and the world are going to witness a very new (must say a kind of different) President this November, the heat is raging across the world that who’s going to lead the superpower of the world. Is it Trump or Hillary?
Trump who’s well known for his controversial and quite inhuman statements to some extent, Hillary is no less to switch off the Trump’s hyped agendas. With Trump, the world has seen the different side of the America, and an open support to the racism, from banning entry of the Muslims to being selective about immigrants, there’s a lot that has been said, and worries the entire world.
A country which is well known for fighting the equality, and even applauded for giving a proper space to LGBT community wholeheartedly is now again back to the roots, or we should call it, the dilemma of the backwardness.
Little can we trust the words of this billionaire businessman and real estate King as he keeps reversing his stand, it was reported that he has received the equivalent of $1.9bn in free advertising as a result of the non-stop media coverage.
Here are the pointers that remind us the double standards of Donald Trump who’s been loud enough time and again:
“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
He says on his website that foreign workers in the country pull salaries down, keeping unemployment high, making life tougher for poor, middle-class Americans and for immigrants too. Nearly half of immigrants and their children live in poverty with 60% of Hispanic immigrants.
If we trace back the history, back then and now, no strict step taken against the discriminative policies till yet. For example, it reveals that indeed from the 1600s, the policies aimed at creating a nation of Whites.
Trump is a man who justifies his sexist statements, even showed a disappointment toward Hillary during the first debate night for bringing back his nightmares through adverts.
He once referred the then Miss Universe winner of 90s era, Alicia Machado as “Miss Piggy” and an “eating machine,” and how he called Rosie O’Donnell a “fat pig” with “a fat, ugly face” (“I think everyone would agree that she deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her,” he said onstage).
In the three-minute recording, which was obtained by The Washington Post, Mr. Trump recounts to the television personality Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood” how he once pursued a married woman and “moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there,” expressing regret that they did not have sex.
Later he issued an apology stating that “Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am”. “I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.”
In a television show, Trump sitting alongside his family, quoted “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.” Maybe he finds it funny, but in real it’s not. Strictly, not.
Ban on Muslims.
For the first time, he proposed a total ban on overseas Muslims from entering the USA, after being countered for his such racist remarks, Trump clearly stated that he doesn’t want to reverse on this statement. But later, after being nominated he was willing to soften his position and stated that Muslim ban is just a suggestion and he is quite open to other ideas.
While speaking to CNN, he also quoted “I think Islam hates us”. “We have to be very vigilant. We have to be very careful. And we can’t allow people coming into this country who have this hatred of the United States,” Trump said.
Well, Trump victory was rated 12 on the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) one to 25 scale (where 1=lowest risk) and labelled a “moderate probability, high impact” event.
The report also embarked that Donald Trump becoming the US president poses a greater risk to the global economy than an armed conflict in the South China Sea or Britain leaving the European Union.
And, once he has also said this, “My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault.”
