Is he even a real option? Are there really people supporting him? Is he really winning polls? I'm beyond confused.
And yet, I keep seeing his name in the news as if he real competition within the Republican party for the party nomination. Even if he doesn't get the nomination, he says he will run as an independent, and there are people supporting him.
And I am confused.
When I look at Donald Trump in the political arena, I see a man acting like a middle school boy. When others bring valid criticism to him (regardless of the issue it's about), he resorts to personal attacks. Rather than explaining why the criticisms are valid like an adult who knows how to debate and discuss and communicate, he says that the other candidates should have to get IQ tests before running (not like he has taken one). He resorts to attacking the image of others.
He gets defensive about media attacks on his hair.
He constantly focuses on the glasses people are wearing ("to make themselves look smarter and get more votes") rather than on showing that he could be a calm and effective leader for the great nation of America that he wants to "MAKE GREAT AGAIN."
I just don't see how America is even given a big, middle school bully the chance to be a part of our nation's leaders. He's already done enough to effect this country as a corporate mogul. We don't need more than that.
Quotes from Donald Trump on the state of America....and there are people that support him. A man who attacks the very thing which he claims to love and want to make great. I'm not saying you cannot criticize America--there is plenty to criticize.
But Trump is a giant man child who cannot handle the responsibility of our nation.
I'm confused. If anyone can explain to me why Donald Trump has a chance (and if he even does--is this all media play?) I would be very appreciative of your effort. Surely, it can't be an easy thing to explain.
