Let Trump be Trump

Donald Trump has made changes in his campaign team but he has vowed he  not change. the mantra is “let Trump be Trump”. It is ironic that he has rejected invitations to appear at the Urban League and NAACP conventions, but last night he asked black people to vote for him at an event that was probably devoid of black people. The idea of a business man becoming president is not a bad idea, but the idea of Trump being that man is a bad idea. Listen to him. Is this a man who should lead this country? I am not fan of Hillary Clinton but when you are between a rock and hard place you have to make a decision. Is she the ideal candidate? No, but 2016 is not the year of the ideal it is the year of not selecting the despicable.

    I agree with you. It’s not ironic for Trump to go to a white enclave and speak to a white audience about black people’s problems (over there in nearby Milwaukee), however. It’s consistent. He’s a white nativist, courting white supremacist support, playing on fears some whites have. You could call it “whitesplaining”.

      Interesting. Donald Trump has been around for decades. Nobody called him a white supremacist, not even a racist, until he ran for president. The Clintons on the other hand, have a history of throwing blacks under the bus. Bill did it with his “friend” Jordan during the Monica scandal, Hillary did it when she set up Susan Rice to take the fall over Benghazi, and now she’s on record as saying Colin Powell told her to set up a private server in her basement. But somehow we don’t see the trend and think the Clintons are the best thing for black people since MLK. When will we dump this groupthink and start to count our friends on both sides of the aisle and vote accordingly?

        True, the DOJ didn’t “call” him a racist. They just sued the company run by he and his father for discrimination in housing back in the ’70s.. But I’m not absolving the Clintons. I don’t support her either.

        elogam, we will not dump group think until we free our minds of the fear of thinking anything other than what the masses tell us we’re supposed to think. Besides, it’s a lot easier being told what to think than actual thinking.

    I’ve seen posts showing the pictures of Clinton and Trump, with a caption that says “Three hundred and twenty million people, and THESE TWO are the best we can come up with?!” America really screwed this one up. I’d take the Vice Presidential candidates over either of their Presidential ones. Of course there is the third party option. EM, I don’t recall that you’ve ever said anything about Gary Johnson here. He has weaknesses, but his strengths are far superior to what either candidate from the major parties bring.
