Memes, hate club pages and phony news articles cover the internet and advocate the ideas of Donald Trump in a hateful way. This has imposed a general dislike for the politician within our population. Is this deserved?

For many people in countries other than the USA, the true motives of the politician are sometimes questioned. America is a large world power and honest interpretations of the president seem to be essential in the smooth running of a fragile world.

Donald Trump doesn't need to be sensationalised, his policies are just so crazy that the rest of the world cannot comprehend why so many Americans have been voting for them. From the point of the view of the rest of the world, for the last 8 years, America has been run by a President whose policies are extremely progressive when compared to Bush. Now we have Trump, whose policies are either a) Racist or b) Insane. In any other country, he would bomb at the polls, but he seems poised to win.

One point stands out within the case of the negative... he seems poised to win.

Elections take place across America to decide which president would be the best for the country. Is the negative stating that all Americans are stupid for voting for an insane and racist leader. Is the negative under the impression that Trump is insane and racist due to sensationalism.

If the entire world is against and America is for him, doesn't this say something about sensationalism in other countries?

Trump has repeatedly made derogatory comments towards Mexicans such as how they are all "rapists and murderers". How is there any other way that that could be taken other than racism. Then there is his views on Muslims which are based on the generalisation that all Muslims are terrorists and should all be treated as such. These policies cannot be taken one way or another, they are simply racist.

The negative seems to be highly against the views and opinions of Donald Trump. However, I believe that these views and opinons are those of a sensationalised presidential candidate. How is it possible for a racist, stereotypical person to run for the highly exclusive role as president. The claims made by the negative do not seem reliable and provide evidence that Donald Trump is sensationalised in countries other than the USA.
