  • He's not racist, just kinda dumb.

    I think it's time to let up on him. He's doing his job.

    I was 100% against him during his campaign because his campaign made him out to be a racist idiot with an overwhelmingly racist following. Like the amount of pro-trump racist graffiti, the white nationalist parties "guarding" polling stations from "potentially fraudulent" voters, etc.

    Post-election, he seems level headed and objective oriented.

      I would like you to see successful in real estate business regardless you have a loan of a million dollar or not.

      Real estate is a very tough and highly stressful business to penetrate let alone be successful. He was close to losing everything but got up on his feet and continued thrive and turning 1million dollar loan to the his current net-worth which is in the bracket 1-5billion dollars and no way indicated he is dumb. and keep in mind it's the real estate business and not some lemonade stand.
      Most of us just would blow that million dollar so fast we would be broke and be on the streets soon.
      He may give you an impression that he is dumb that's just the way of fooling you to take him as a fool. He is a highly stress resistant individual and never met a dumb person with high stress resistance.

      Okay I'll rephrase if that's the problem: he's not dumb he's just terrible with word choices. His supporters during his campaign made him out to be "champion of the racists" and he's made some wet blanket nationalist statements, like in regards to calling "most Mexican immigrants" rapists and drug dealers he chose to say "Somebody's doing the raping" instead of trying to make a diplomatic response. That's about the equivalent of me saying we should arrest everyone that lives in a trailer park because "somebody's making the meth"

      I wouldn't call his actual education into question, because I'm pretty sure he went to Harvard or something (right?) and I can't say too much for his vernacular because the US voted 2 times for a guy who literally said "I believe that people and fish can coexist peacefully"

    • 5d

      He already started rich. I think it's the easiest thing in the world to be rich and get richer. Nothing is easier

  • People hate him, so statements he's made are shifted in order to present him as a racist, and other things.
    "Mexico sends their rapists" becomes "(All) Mexicans are rapists"
    Him calling any SPECIFIC woman ugly or unattractive makes him sexist towards women.
    Him saying that as a rich guy girls are all over you and you can "grab them by the pussy" becomes "I'm a rapist and I condone rape"

    Etcetc. Is he ACTUALLY racist and sexist? Who actually knows? I know I don't know what actually goes on in his head, what he actually thinks about people.

      He's not racist but I could make the argument that he's bigoted. I actually like him as president and I have no issues with him. I don't have time to hate the guy and I don't know why others even bother hating him. It's only hurtful to ones self to harbor hatred in their heart.

      1. He was referring to the very high number of rape instances that occur at the hands of Mexicans during illegal border crossings. Very much supported by evidence.
      2. Wasn't he referring to Africa? Africa isn't a race and it is a bit of a shit hole. I mean would you go live there? I wouldn't.

      How can you say that when your post is the epitome of ignoring context? Lemme guess, you didn't hear that from Trump himself, you heard it from people around you or media outlets (because newsflash friend, he hasn't said ANY of the things you mention in your original post).
      "Context" my ass, learn to understand context yourself before you accuse others of lacking it.

  • He’s not racist. He’s not talking about their race or skin color.

    He’s talking about how shitty other countries are because THEY ARE and therefore he does his job to protect America.

      It just so happens that every athlete he harasses is black and uses their platform to bring awareness to social issues that his administration ignores.

  • I personally have not seen racist actions or heard racist comments from him. I think he's just a loud gregarious guy who often speaks without thinking about how certain people may take his comment. I honestly think the man wants to help our country and you can't really judge him as racist for doing the job we the people hired him to do. You can't consider the immigration issue because that's not a decision wholly made by trump alone, there are many other people that factor in to these legal dramas playing out right now.

      What about calling white supremacists "fine people"?

    • 4d

      @JenSCDC what about when he called communists and black nationalists fine people? Fucking take the whole quote you dumb fuck, he said that both sides are retarded, and a few people on both sides are fine people but they are stupid for taking part in something so idiotic as identity politics. You are either misinformed or you are a liar.

    • 4d

      Racism: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.
      Calling a country a shit hole is not a judgment based on any race. It might not be a nice or proper comment but it's still not racism. Also, wouldn't you think there's good people who are also gang members? There's gotta be some just by the laws of simple mathematics and probability you can assume there's a few good people in any type of violent or hate motivated groups. So saying that he thinks there's some white nationalists who are probably decent people is no different than saying there's some decent people who belong to the crips.
      But, if you were to say that our president Donald trump Trump is a bigot, well he's that definition and I'd say it fits him.
      : bigotry;
      intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself

  • It could be a mixture of racism and ignorance but most recent example would be his famous "shithole" countries comment when he was referring to African countries

      no this is very true. Technically everyone is racist, racism just means to discriminate on basis of race.

  • it's hard to say what he TRULY feels without him saying it. but i think it's clear that he treats issues where the person is non-white rather differently.

    two points:
    1. on immigration he said that the US shouldn't be taking immigrants from shithole nations and then specifically cited countries with overwhelmingly black populations while omitting rather shitty countries that also send lots of refugees like the Ukraine

    2. he was successfully sued for discriminatory practices towards renters of properties he owned in NYC. the Justice Dept fined him a heavily for specific renting practices that said not to rent to minorities

    again i will not say unequivocally that he is racist but he certainly says and does things to make it seem very possible that he is

  • Trump is not racist at all. The 'Mexican thing' on the media? He knew it'd happen. It was planned. It was an advertisement campaign. He didn't have to play anything and they gave him airtime more than anyone else. Trump is married to a foreign woman with a thick accent. His son in law is a Jew. On the miss universe he has seen, met and had relationships (friendships- maybe sometimes even more) with Hispanic women who've won the contest. He's said a lot of good stuff about people from Hispanic countries like Venezuelans (even during his campaign). Trump is definitely not a racist man. In his position, he wanted to win the presidency and he had to do whatever it took, and he didn't say anything purely wrong about immigration.

    I'm not trying to say he does not support strict immigration policies. I think he does. Just that the way he did it was for marketing more than anything else. He's been in business. He knows the media. On his book he wrote bad publicity is better than no publicity. He was still selling , the difference is that this time he was selling himself (and ideas) to the public. He wanted to win, win, win. That's all that matters.

    • 4d

      To be fair, it's not really a travel ban. All it does is create a delay through the longer and more thorough application process and all the countries involved were actually selected by Obama during his time as president. There is already a wall between Mexico and the US, he just wants to make it bigger and more functional. As for the Africa comment, what exactly did he say that was racist? He's grown up in a Western world in a life of luxury. It's completely understandable that he views Africa in such a light.

      Just to clarify, I think Trump is a moron... but it seems that a lot of misinformation is being peddled.
