Donald Trump represents everything that is wrong with the United States.

From his prejudicial remarks to his contradictory statements to his economic policies that are damned to fail. It is unfathomable for me to even grasp an understanding on why people choose to support a clown such as him as the leader of our nation.

Let’s start out with his proposal of deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants.

His supporters would say illegal immigrants are the ones who are ruining this country, stealing jobs, and all that nonsense.

Let’s look at the facts. Dolia Estevez, a writer for Forbes basically stated in her article titled “Trump’s Deportation Plan Prohibitively Expensive,” it would take $600 billion to deport 11.3 million undocumented immigrants and prevent future unlawful entry for the next 20 years.

How do you think we could afford this? What if I tell you that the money will come from our tax dollars. Tax dollars that could instead go to more beneficial projects in our nation such as education.

These undocumented immigrants pay their share of taxes just as much as Trump supporters do.

Now let’s go on with his prejudicial remarks. Should we even ignore his claim on Mexico sending in their worst to America or his Islamophobic remarks? If you don’t even think for the slightest chance that this is racist, I have news for you — it is.

These past few weeks, Trump fails to keep his mouth shut just as much as he can’t keep his tiny hands to himself. With the recent audio of him bragging about how he attempted to do sexual acts on a married woman, addressing her with sexist and derogatory names. I just don’t see how a man like him could be elected as a candidate to be the leader of our nation.

People would argue he is just not a politician, and says things as it is. So therefore, he is justified to say things that are just flat out improper? This is absolutely ridiculous. If he is not running to be the president of the United States, where everything he says is put into major scrutiny all over the world, maybe his stupidity could be a little bit more tolerable.

But otherwise, would you want this sorry excuse of a man to represent your nation all over the world?
