    Furthermore, the creator of the video also points out that Trump was being target by El Chapo, a Mexican drug lord. The reason behind this was that Trump used El Chapo’s escape as additional anti-Mexico fodder for his campaign. Trump made it known from the beginning that he was not fond of Mexicans and wanted to stop them from coming in the country. That itself is a major way to lose votes and gain enemies, which one of them was El Chapo. Alphacat knows that having a President who isn’t accepting everyone will cause numerous problems.…

    Even though many may think building a wall is rude, I personally think it is just a clever way to prevent undocumented immigrants from entering; however, I do not agree with Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the wall. He believes that Mexico is taking advantage of us, but America has always been a country that is willing to help. Even though we are willing to help, we should be stricter about the immigrants that are in this country, and Donald Trump has good ideas to do that. To improve America, Trump’s scare tactics will bring people from different parties and areas of the country to vote for him in this upcoming election. He uses the fears of illegal immigration and terrorism as means of getting people to go vote for him.…

If Trump’s plan is carried out, the Mexicans would be unauthorized to enter America because of the “great great wall,” possible recessions and riots would take place, and all illegal immigrants including the birthright citizens will be forced to leave America.

    People associate this phrase with a corrupt candidate that will make false promises and do nothing in office. This argument works especially well against Hillary because many already suspect her to be a liar due to the highly controversial email scandal. Trump also excites the audience with this point by convincing them that he is different from all the other politicians and will be able to make a real difference in office. Much of Trump 's campaign is centered around…

    Although certain opportunities are given to people of certain ancestry, the idea of White Supremacy seems to sweep parts of the nation. The public (not all) thinks that anyone who is not American should immediately be deported. This is not what our founding fathers had intended when building a foundation for this country.

That seems to be his base, although he is trying to attract Republicans to support him, his accusations about illegal immigrants is quite backwards.…

He has went out and made a personal attack on John McCain saying he wants a war hero who is not captured then turns around and states that he (Donald) has done more to help veterans than John. These kinds of attacks have been his method of showing his views and frankly have been upsetting a lot of people in the U.S. and in politics, but that is where we need to look at him as a representative.
