My Point Of View: We all keep hearing and reading Trump’s criticisms of Hillary Clinton’s character and specifically her alleged dishonesty. Trump has even nicknamed her “Crooked Hillary”. So, let’s just critically examine Trump’s character. TRUMP IS A HORRIBLE BUSINESS MAN: Trump has filed for 4 separate bankruptcies each time draining his corporations of millions of dollars needed to remain solvent and then moving that money into his own personal accounts. As those corporations collapsed, his creditors (like contractors and vendors), the state governments (aka, taxpayers) and federal government (aka, taxpayers) got stuck with the financial aftermath. Trump walked away richer each time. TRUMP IS VERY DISHONEST: Trump over the last few years has been sued over 3500 times. Who do you know that has been sued 3500 times? I don’t. Hundreds of these lawsuits involve him not paying his contractors for work completed. Some involved him not paying his own employees. That’s DISHONEST. Or how about Trump criticizing corporations for outsourcing US jobs when all of Trump’s manufactured products are outsourced to China, Mexico, Vietnam, Bangladesh. Watch him on TV. Constant lies and made-up facts that are totally false. Trump = Liar, Liar. Pants On Fire.. TRUMP IS A PHILANDERER: Trump has been married 3 times. He has been involved in so many affairs while being married. That takes a lot of lies and deceit…both forms of DISHONESTY. TRUMP IS A RACIST: The horrible things Trump has said about Mexicans is beyond belief disgusting. Who wants our POTUS to be a racist? Really? Trump indicts an entire religion, 1.6 million Muslims, for the acts of very few. Who wants our POTUS to be a racist? TRUMP DISPLAYS HORRIBLE JUDGMENT: Trump constantly flip-flops on critically important policy positions. 1. Trump recently said he wants JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA to have their own nuclear weapons. Now, he says he opposes Japan and South Korea having nuclear weapons. 2. Trump was FOR SOME GUN controls. To get the GOP nomination, now he’s AGAINST ALL GUN controls. 3. Not too long ago, he SUPPORTED a woman’s RIGHT TO ABORTION. To get the GOP nomination, he now OPPOSES a woman’s right to abortion. Recently Trump said he wanted WOMEN PUNISHED FOR HAVING AN ABORTION. I few days later he changed his mind again and said he wants PHYSICIANS PUNISHED FOR PERFORMING ABORTIONS instead. 4. He was once against the IRAQ WAR and now says he was always for it. Ditto for the AFGHANISTAN WAR. 5. Trump has on multiple occasions flip-flopped on his support for ISRAEL. 6. Ditto on TORTURE. 7. Trump has said he would ban ALL 1.6 MILLION MUSLIMS from entering the USA. Now he’s waffling on his position. 8. He formerly LOVED HILLARY CLINTON. Now he HATES CLINTON. 9. Trump seems to be unraveling as a person while insulting and offending so many large segments of our voters as well as many, many prominent GOP leaders. 10. At his first National Security briefing, he asked 3 times if he could use nuclear weapons to destroy ISIS 11. A few years ago, Trump said he was a Democrat. Now he’s a GOPer. Seems soon he might be in a loony bin. Trump is a certifiable right wingnut. HIS PANTS ARE SO ON FIRE. And yet, so many GOPers gullibly believe Trump and commit to voting for him.
