Dump the Trump

Donald Trump is running to become the USA president. He is currently going round campaigning for people to vote for him. Supposedly if he wins the election he claims to build a wall against the Mexican border. He will also put an end to the immigration system. He has no political career, the only experience he has is on live TV starring in the American version of the apprentice. I urge American voters to vote for Hillary Clinton since she is fairer but this is only my opinion.

  1. Hello Candycrush05,

    I’ve heard a few club members on the Hub say that the only real work experience Donald Trump has is from appearing in a TV programme in America.

    If someone were to challenge what you have said, what assumptions might they spot?

    Take a look at their policies compared on this site and let me know what you find: http://www.cfr.org/campaign2016/

      Hey Network News Blats

      Did anyone watch the news.Hilary Clinton burned Trump,my vote is for Hilary Clinton because I think that she’ll be a really good president.

      • North Beckton Primary School North Beckton Primary School

        I tottaly agree

        • North Beckton Primary School North Beckton Primary School

          Yes, so do I. He is extremely rude and racist.
          He wants to build a wall on the border of USA and Mexico so Mexican people won’t get in America. Some people in Mexico don’t have somewere to live or stay and they come to stay in America. If Trump is the president the Mexican people won’t have place to stay.

            In my opinion, I believe that Donald Trump is not intentionally being rude but thinks that he is just expressing his beliefs and opinions. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton is saying what she thinks in the correct manner. If I had to choose, I would elect Hillary Clinton to be president.

            • Hello Colegrave Primary School club members.

              It’s great to see you all on the Hub! There has been a lot of discussion about why Trump or Clinton should or shouldn’t be president based on their personality.

              I’m interested to find out, who do you think has the best policies?

              • John Ruskin Primary School John Ruskin Primary School

                Clinton obviously has the best policies!

                In my humble opinion, I think that both Hillary Clinton and Donald trump’s policies are very unique however, Hillary’s are met to more people’s expectations, for an example:
                Hillary wants to introduce more checks when buying a gun however Trump wants people to be allowed to just carry a gun and when buying he thinks it is fine to just buy it

                In my opinion, I believe it’s obvious that Hilary has better policies unlike Trump with unnecessary thinking with walls and those kind of “policies” he has…

          In this session we learnt about how each of the candidates express their opinions. Hillary Clinton has been very thorough to include her beliefs and what she will persist to do. On the other hand, Donald Trump has spoken in a more less formal term and changes his quotes determining on what the public wants so he will only opinions not on his beliefs but on what the public wishes for. To conclude, I would vote for Hillary because based on the quotes we have looked at she continues to stand up for herself which will inspire many Americans.

      Hello Lucy

      I am candycrush05
      Recently I have found some more news about Donald Trump:

      *He is discriminative to women and treats them unfairly. Most of all he thinks women shouldn’t deserve the same opportunity as men. He calls them pigs and dogs.
      *He is racist and that he will put an end to all immigrants crossing the borders and coming into America.

    hello Candycrush05

    while I agree with the fact that hillary might be fairer and that trump has bad ideas about immigration and some odd views on how to deal with terrorism but if you look at america’s economy like a business wouldn’t an experienced entrepreneur be the best person for the job?

    • Hi supadupa123,

      I can see you have been asking lots of interesting questions around why people would vote for Trump. You’ve shown you understand how important it is to dig deeper into an issue to understand it. Great curiosity!

      You are thinking along the same lines as a club member from Chiltern Way Academy. Find their comment on the post I’ve linked to below and leave them a reply to let them know your thoughts.

    • Yes, the economy is very important! But for a ‘entrepreneur’ who has been avoiding tax for 18 years! I don’t believe he is fair and a right person to lead and example for the rest of the country or top business!!

      I agree with you coolbooks because Donald Trump actually has not had no experience whatsoever but, if you think about it hardly, Hillary has done some bad things before for example she is not truthful but I am not saying that Donald SHOULD be president however, if you use your common sense , should you really vote for any of them?Of course you have to vote for one of them but you have to think about it.

    Hi Candycrush05

    An entrepreneur as successful as Trump cannot be lacking in experience. To add, all top businessmen/women have a ‘political career’ because a strong political presence is necessary in business to cut successful deals nationally and internationally. Business and Politics overlap and interlink. For example, you could argue that the American Apprentice has a political agenda because it has shown Trump as an authoritative, successful figure. Maybe one that could rule ‘the land of the free’?
    I still agree with supadupa123 that Hilary is the fairer candidate!

    Like many others, I think Hilary Clinton would make a really good president because Donald Trump won’t help anything if he gets elected due to his plan to stop the immigration system and that would be unfair for immigrants who don’t have a place to stay.

    WroetoBlog123

  25. North Beckton Primary School North Beckton Primary School

    Like many others, I think Hilary Clinton should be president because Donald Trump,won’t help anything even if he gets elected.Simply because he wants to build a wall over Mexico,and also wants to stop the immigration system which I think would be totally unfair for people who don’t have a place to stay.

    WroetoBlog123

    • Hi WroetoBlog123,

      There has been a lot of discussion on the Hub about why Donald Trump shouldn’t be president. However, a lot of American people think that Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy. Why do you think this is? Watch this short film and let me know, what reasons are given for not trusting Clinton?

      https://youtu.be/alRsf-Se82I

      • North Beckton Primary School North Beckton Primary School

        I watched a video about why people don’t trust Clinton.There was different occasions when she said she doesn’t think America should recognise gay marriage,and in 2013 she said that she supports gay marriage.Thats why I think that Clinton can’t be trusted because she likes to change her opinions and it can confuse many people.

Its weird that me as a child has mixed feelings about things but you don’t know how its going to turn out maybe there will be a down side but there still is a chance of having a good side which perhaps you want.

        It’s changed my view on politics in the way that I now understand there’s always going to be a good side of the people running for candidates and they may bring in something that you don’t agree with, but there will always be something you probably will agree with.

    I am a bit sceptic about the election. I mean, Hilary could be a corrupt person, and I’m not too sure about her. But then again, do we want Donald as president?

    Donald Trump is racist and doesn’t like women and this is discrimination.
    He also said if he wins president, using his power he will have Hilary
    Clinton arrested. He didn’t seem to state why though, which leaves
    me a bit sceptical.

    I personally think that Donald Trump has got the skills but not the experience. To him running a country is running a business.

    I personally think and agree that Hillary should be president because she thinks more positively towards political issues whereas Donald trump thinks more negatively and I think America should have a president who is more positive towards political and non political issues.

    I agree that Hilary Clinton should be the next president as i think she would be perfect for the job after the great job our current US President Barack Obama has done. I also think that Donald Trump speaks freely but sometimes he can be a bit too prejudice towards certain ethnicity/religious groups which i see him as a racist and also a sexist. The only REAL experience he has is on reality TV so should we vote for Donald Trump just cause he is very popular in a way or do you just agree with his policies rather than his negative attitude towards political crisis that are happening around the world? Let me know what you think, if you agree or if you disagree. This is my opinion, what is yours?

    Personally, I don’t like Donald, and am aware of the racist discrimination and gender discrimination he uses against people. However, hypothetically, Hilary who seems a good example as president could be corrupt or paid to run as a candidate as we discussed. I am very curious and sceptic about the election.

    I personally think he is bad but a bit good at the same time. The problems are that he is a bit rude and quite a bit more things bad about him ,one of the only good things about him is that he is very clear and fair.

    Donald trump might be president. I am not saying I would vote for him. I am saying he has been winning most debates and might win. but still hilary clinton still has a fair chance of winning as well.

    I am a bit sceptic about Hilary Clinton but what about Donald Trump?I think Hilary Clinton should win because Donald Trump is just racist to people such as Muslims. Also, he is against women which I think is not good. His speech [which I thought was not good] was because he is kind of saying that USA are bad [which I don’t agree with because USA are pretty good]. He told people that if he wins the election he is going to arrest Hilary Clinton. He will allow people have guns.I don’t know. He is cruel and mean and would not allow any American people freedom at all times. Finally I think he might be lying about building a wall over Mexico to bring a lot more attention to people.

    • Hello K13R4 Puglas,

      A lot of people on the Hub have said they would vote for Hillary Clinton because they do not like Donald Trump. I understand from what you’ve said that you think Clinton’s expeerience and positive attitude will make her a better president.

      In his post to the BNC, David Hawkings explained what American people don’t like about Hillary Clinton:

      “After watching her as a powerful person in the news for almost 25 years, they view her as dodgy, not routinely honest, unwilling to admit mistakes, ready to change her mind about her beliefs in order to be popular and acting too often like the rules don’t apply to her.”

      Does this change your mind?

    If I were to vote for president of the USA I would definitely vote for Hilary Clinton because she is not Racist or sexist. Donald trump is in both of those 2 things because first of all he ‘dislikes’ Muslims and he is planning to put a wall up on the border of America so no more Muslims can enter. Second of all he has even said to the public he hates Girls. But for some strange reason other females adore him. But what is wrong with girls they are still human and basically the same person but different looks.A quote of my own, that I thought of: First it is not beauty nor brains but personality”. A women in America who is Mexican-American, offered her appreciation for Trump’s “transparency.” But what if this lady’s family lived in Mexico and if Trump gets elected they will not be able to visit her. Now this is the question of this Comment :Why do people vote for Trump if they know bad things are going to happen?

      Well, considering Donald Trump has “supporters”, they must see good characteristics and qualities in him, although not everybody sees it. And also, I think he gains more supporters and confidence when his supporters try and convince and persuade people to vote for him.

  98. Colegrave Primary School Colegrave Primary School

    In my opinion, I believe that Donald Trump doesnt do everything right. He has made some mistakes, recently in the news I learnt that he has been offensive to women in the past. Although he has apologised, this deosn’t change the fact that he said it-he still affected many people. Both sides have different arguments, and have both made mistakes. However, I believe Donald Trump has just made larger errors than Hilary Clinton. Therefore, I would disagree with Donald Trump. On the other hand others may disagree, and say the same about Hilary Clinton.

      Firstly, remember to always include your pseudonym so everyone knows who is posting.

      Secondly, it is good to challenge each other’s opinion on the Hub. A good challenge includes reasons and facts. Instead of just saying somebody is wrong, include reasons why you think that and reasons why you think you are right.

      Please reply to this comment with a reason why people shouldn’t vote for Hillary Clinton and a reason why people should vote for Donald Trump.

  100. North Beckton Primary School North Beckton Primary School

    I am a bit sceptic about Hilary Clinton but what about the man Donald Trump? Reason one is that he is sexist and he only cares about himself and his money. He is also racist to Muslims and some other people. He is against women which I think is not good but even though he is saying that,some women adore him. I think that that is wrong. He told people that if he wins this forthcoming election he will put crooked Hilary Clinton [how he sometimes calls her] under bars. Donald Trump will also allow Americans have a right that they are allowed to have guns. I don’t know. He is just to cruel and would not allow any freedom to all Americans. Finally,I think he might be be lying about building a wall over Mexico because he[Donald Trump]is just to lazy to make one. She is more positive in politician whereas Donald is more negative. Now I hope you change your minds.

    I have got one question which is why do people vote for Donald Trump when they know he is going to make USA worser place?

    The reasons I hate Trump is that he is racist and he dislike the Muslims. He is quite rude too. He said ” I think we would get alone very well!” But I’m sure that he’s wrong because what he is saying and maybe if he be the president he will get all the Muslims out of America. And maybe he will arrest Hitlarry. Which isn’t good because she didn’t do nothing to him or something bad. And if people are allowed to have guns if they fight they may kill each other which isn’t good thing. That doesn’t make a good president because lots of people may die before their life expectancy.

    Donald Trump should be a bit nicer to muslims and women because more people might like him.

  106. Villiers High School Villiers High School

    I vote for Hillary because she doesn’t dislike Muslims. I believed that she will be a good president because of this quote “If Congress refuses to act, as president I would do everything possible under the law to go even further [than President Obama]”and also this quote “33,000 Americans a year die [from guns]. It is time for us to say we are going to have comprehensive background checks, we are going to close the gun-show loopholes.” i think if she become the president, people wouldn’t be allowed to use guns but i think if Trump become the next president people would right to buy guns and shoot. Should Muslims face extra immigration hurdles?
    Hillary said” No”
    Trump said “Yes”

    I think maybe if she become the next president Muslims would be allowed to go to USA.

    Looking over my research, I believe that Donald Trump MAY not be intentionally being rude, he might think he’s just stating his opinions and beliefs, which I think is true, however Hilary is sharing her opinions in the correct manner.
    LCJournalist

  111. Arnhem Wharf Primary School Arnhem Wharf Primary School

    I feel like Donald Trump has no potential in anybody but himself and his children. He has the experience as a businessman, but I feel like that he isn’t using his experience and ability to actually help make America better (if he gets elected). Hypothetically, he might not be as experienced as we thought. Hilary is a good, polite and well-rounded person who has a positive attitude and really sets an example. She is a good candidate and deserves to get elected as the American president. In my opinion, Donald doesn’t always intend to be rude, but just is, yet Hilary states her opinions in the correct manner.
    LCJournalist

  112. Arnhem Wharf Primary School Arnhem Wharf Primary School

    So, I’ve found out that the reason some people dislike Hilary and support Donald because looking at the very long period of time she has had expert experience in politics, hypothetically, it seems very dodgy/odd to some people.

    -Loyal Newsy

  115. Arnhem Wharf Primary School Arnhem Wharf Primary School

    Personally, my vote would be Hillary. Of course, I have a few subtle reasons following; First, I would want to see the first female president of the American Nation run it in the modern age! It would be very good to witness, don’t you think? Also, she tries to make fair policies. However, both have not had the cleanest history/past. Both have lied/cheated and they could so do again, therefore we can never be entirely sure. Yet Trump has been discriminating people for race/religion/gender. However, calling him out on it seems unfair to certain people, so I’d like to differ some assumptions and accusations. He has always been like this, and he contradicts himself, but theorietically and hypothetically, if it was Hilary discriminating, we’d probably be supporting Trump, but it’s vice versa. So what/how are we meant to act about that and say about that? He (Trump) can be a bit too prejudice towards certain ethnicity/religious groups, as we know, but as I said, what if that was Hillary? Eh? Would we still support her despite her being discriminative? Because Trump has supporters in spite of being discriminative. So what can we say/do about this? It’s a very hard decision for many, but I personally do prefere Clinton.

    LCJournalist

  116. Arnhem Wharf Primary School Arnhem Wharf Primary School

    We all Trump is discriminative, but at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uh7RdNIMVOk, there is proof that with Hillary Clinton, America will easily slide into nuclear war which people are referring to as an upcoming WWIII (World War 3). Many people are going on about Russia planning to nuke the US and if so (if true), America would be gone in a day/two. However if America tries/attempt to nuke Russia, it would take quite a bit longer; Russia is huge and they don’t have as advanced weapons as Russia. No matter who gets voted for president, America will be in meltdown. Is there truly any hope? As well as this ginormous problem (may/may not happen, but are fairly certain it will, this is all hypothetical), the media doesn’t give us a chance to see the true colors of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump or anything about them behind the political side of things. The news and the media isn’t being much of a help right now, not to be rude or disrespectful.

    On a less political side of things, I want to focus on the issue of the society with the supposed upcoming WW3. What about the children of our generation in the society? These corrupt people don’t really think they should/could get away with this diabolical plan? Honestly, that’s just stupid. There will people panicking all over the world. People panicking for themselves and for their loved ones. We need Trump, otherwise America WILL go into nuclear war. If we knew more about the supposed upcoming war, we’d know who to chose. If the media showed us more of the presidental election candidates, we would be safer.

    Trump contradicts himself with the “wall” that he will build and expect Mexico to pay for it (which is stupid). His wife is an immigrant too! 😮 It’s so ironic and he is being pedantic. He wants to put a stop to the immigration system, when his wife is an immigrant.
