I don't understand. I haven't met a single individual who publicly admits that they want Donald Trump to win the presidency or even win the nomination. Members of the Republican Party have even admitted that they would rather support Clinton over Trump. A fact checker for the Washington Post
“Once again, we are confronted with a nonsense figure from the mouth of Donald Trump. He is either claiming to save four times the entire cost of the Medicare prescription drug system — or he is claiming to make prescription drugs free for every American. Neither is possible.” Mr. Kessler gives Mr. Trump “four Pinocchios,” his highest rating for not being truthful."
According to polls, his public support is around 49% among Republicans (51% are just supporting others who aren't Trump). I guess when you consider the qualities that he has that makes him likable (needing an anti-establishment figure), he is a necessary evil in deciding who will be pivotal in the election, but it doesn't make much sense that Trump is the leading candidate for the Republican side (Democrats are still arguing about who has more valuable political experience: Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders).
Four years ago, the country pleaded there's no place for business in politics (doesn't make sense if you really understand the current political process). Mitt Romney was one of prime examples of the idea of the unworthy, dishonest businessman. What has changed now?
Americans are extremely dissatisfied with the system. People are irritated, we're in a moment of social movement (gay marriage, #BlackLivesMatter,third-wave of feminism, free the nipple campaigns) people don't want the status quo. But how does that mean Donald Trump is the answer? It doesn't, people are stupid. Well no, people aren't stupid, but people don't understand politics. Should we vote or consider a candidate because we agree with his anger, but we have no gauging point as to whether he is an effective legislator.
What is the role of the president of the United States? Should the president be the voice of the people? Should the president be solely responsible for foreign affairs and let Congress handle the rest? Should the president be good at business affairs first an foremost? Because the better the standard of living, the happier and healthier the citizens are.
With every other candidate, people have asked the question. Donald Trump has the dirtiest track record of all the candidates with business dishonesty and endless ad-hominem attacks.
Who knows, but the White House might become the Trump Tower in the near future, ruining the dreams of other hopeful Americans hoping to either Feel the Bern, gush over Marco Rubio, ignore Ted Cruz, or experience the Clinton Machine.
But please, can the Trump supporters stand up? No one in America knows who you are.
