Many U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens don't like Donald trump, but why? Well, first let's look at who Donald trump is in the first place. Donald Trump is one of the most well known businessmen in the world, in fact he runs many huge organizations such as the Trump Entertainment Resorts and the Trump Organization. He is also the star and producer of a show on NBC called the Apprentice which has many famous co-star on it for a chance to win a quarter of a million dollars. With all this success, why is there so many people who dislike Donald trump? Is it his character? His outspoken personality or maybe something else? Lately, Donald Trump has announced a proposal to ban Muslims for coming in to the United States. A Lot of people were really affected by this and felt that he was completely out of line for making such comments about someone's religion. Recently, a Monmouth University poll was taken and now Donald Trump has taken the lead now to 41 percent and his rival Ted Cruz sits at only 14 percent. That's almost three times as much! Even though many people feel like he's not being a good leader or a person of unfairness it seems as though that people are supporting him more. Why is that? A Lot of his supporters believe that what he’s saying is true, but he's just not putting his words in an ethical way.
It's just the way he says it, that's all. It comes out wrong. I think if he had time to explain it, he could. "You know, when it comes over the news, you just get bites. You just hear soundbites. You don't get the whole picture." -- Dale Witmer, of Des Moines, Iowa.
Another one of his supporters believe that people are secretly feeling the same way and says that people don't want to fess up because they don't want to seem racist or hurt someone's feelings.
"That's what people want! They're not going to say it, but that's what they want. I mean, I hate to say it ... but that's the way it is. This is a different age then it was 10 years ago or 20 years ago. We've got to protect the homeland here, that's the number one." -- Mike Baker, of Ankeny, Iowa.
Some of the people who are against him feel completely opposite. They feel that it is inhumane to express opinions like that with no consideration of someone's religion,background, or personality. A senior at the Academy at Palumbo expresses his opinion about this topic. “I feel like Donald trump is wrong and that he shouldn't be our president”, the stated
A teacher also expressed their opinion about this topic and feels that his view and slippery mouth causes a lot of people to dislike him and not want to support him.
“I don't think Donald trump wants to help people that are lower than him, but I do feel that Philadelphia's new mayor will definitely be good because he seems to want to help the schooling system.”
Donald Trump is viewed in many ways in various parts of the world,but how do you feel?
