Donald Trump would be absolutely amazing as the united states president. His policies reflect that. His tax plans for businesses will create more jobs and allow manufacturing to come back to the united states. His plan for healthcare would allow you to choose any healthcare company you want and because of the competition prices will be at an all time low. Renegotiating the current international trade would be easy for trump seeings how hes been negotiating international deals most of his life. His plan to return 35% of taxed income to families who are making less than 55,000 per year is great. He wants to lower power of the federal government and return it to the state, like our founding fathers wanted. Not to mention he wants to stop government corruption. I can't see why anyone would appose him.

Trump's tax plans are nothing but a cheap plan to increase revenue for his own business by lowering taxes for businesses. Really the question should be how Trump plans to decrease the national debt by decreasing government profits. If he decides to cut departments within the government, which departments would he cut? He can't cut the IRS, because they provide resources citizens desperately need in order to understand tax forms. He can't cut the Department of Education, because they provide releif to student loans, the most prevalent type of loans. And how is Trump going to negotiate with foreign countries? The behaviors Trump has exhibited whil running for the office of president call into question his ability to effectively arrange foreign policies with foreign leaders without offending them! Also, while most poiliticians are corrupt, he is a corrupt businessman, as he used tax loopholes in order to cheat taxes. Lastly, our founding fathers agreed that a strong national government was needed to run the country effectively. Those founding fathers were called the Federalists, and those are the people we attribut the Constitution to.

If you read his tax plans thoroughly it is apparent it would make manufacturing cheaper in the united states. By charging a larger tax for importing goods it would give companies the push they need to return the manufacturing back to the Americans. What behavior would that be exactly. He has said that it is vital for the united states to get along with our allies while strengthening our own side of the deals (hence the end to nafta). How has he negotiated all his buisness deals without offending them? The only reason he looks so evil is because of the mainstream media who take his words and statements out of context. As far as "our founding fathers being for a strong national government" you can find dozens of quotes that argue that point. I will give you the one that I memorized because it stuck out the most to me. " Every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker of our lives, by that much we move toward making the State our Master." Dwight D. Eisenhower

Charging larger taxes for importing goods also cause other countries to start raising their own taxes on imported goods in retaliation. This causes the economy to suffer, since a lot of revenue comes from importing goods to foreign countries. The United States will make less and then the budget deficit will increase. Also when you raise taxes inside the country companies tend to branch out to other countries with lax tax laws, causing unemployment in the United States to rise. Jobs will be outsourced, and Americans will not receive any jobs, the United States will be deeper in debt, and taxes will have to rise to combat it, nullifying the initial glamour the tax plan offered in the first place. How has he negotiated business deals without offending people? Because people don't pay attention to his character, only his name. His name is the only thing that carries weight, and his demeanor has become famous because of it. Also Donald Trump has many quotes which show the depth of his actual character. The quotes the media uses to vilify him are o outstanding that even with context he has painted himself as an idiot. "Bombing the (expletive) out of ISIS."? Having Mexico pay for a wall along the border? Both of these thing are what Trump has said will happen when he is president, and both are, in all probability, not going to happen. What is his plan to locate ISIS? Also, simulations conducted by the government indicate that eliminating one leader of ISIS will actually increase its threat level. And how on earth is he going to force Mexico to pay for a wall? Instigate war? However, both of these can't compare to his plan on beating ISIS by taking their families and killing them, which is a war crime. Lastly, Dwight D. Eisenhower was not a founding father of this nation. He became president after Taft, soon after WWII, not in the 1700's. And as he is a Republican, he is predisposed to advocate for smaller government. The reason the founding fathers had to advocate for a larger form of government was mainly due to the fact that the government could not collect taxes, which is also a major problem today. In order to decrease our budget, taxes must rise period. But even "uncorrupted" Donald Trump has not advocated for raising taxes, because his chance of winning will be nonexistent, although his chances of winning right now are not well either.

The debate is not about whether he will make a better president than his Democrat counterpart, but whether he will be a good president in general.
