Donald Trump started off in the Brooklyn real estate market. His father allegedly gave him a "small loan of a million dollars", and now both the Donald and the Trump brand have been catapulted to a status of recognition never seen before. The Trump name is now synonymous with wealth, power, and big hair. But does Trump pose a threat to our country?

On June 16th, 2016, Donald J. Trump formally announced his candidacy for the 2016 presidential election. His policies have gained extreme controversy and, in some cases, hatred from both the media and the public. However, the same issues that are turning people away from Trump are also drawing others in, at an alarming rate. Donald Trump has dominated many of the caucuses so far, and has attracted "yuge!" numbers of voters from many states. Trump has gone from being a mere joke in the campaign to a very real, and very terrifying, threat.

In this debate I will argue that Donald Trump should be killed at 12:00 PM, on January 20th, 2017, as he is being sworn in for president of the United States. I will argue that not only should Trump be assassinated in this manner, but that he also poses a serious threat to our nation and beyond.

This debate is to be taken with all seriousness. No trolling, defamation, or other shenanigans are permitted.

Round 1: Acceptance

Rounds 2-4: Arguments

Round 5: Rebuttals-no new arguments.

Good luck!

Donald Trump is racist, bigoted, and ill-prepared to become President of the United States. Donald Trump's policies are nothing but detrimental to the welfare of the United States. One oft-quoted example is how the Donald not only wants to stop Mexicans from entering the country and deport Mexicans already living here, but also wants to build a wall along the entire Mexico-US border. He also said that he would put "5-star restaurants and hotels" on the border so that US citizens could "laugh at the Mexicans." He has defamed the citizens of Mexico, calling them criminals, rapists, and harbingers of drugs. If Trump deports the Mexican people, he would sacrifice a difficult-to-replace, excellent source of cheap labor.

The Donald is a failure of a diplomat. While the Obama administration and its predecessors treaded lightly with diplomatic matters, Trump outright insults other countries and, in the case of Mexico, offends many citizens in the country. The United States has often been called "the world's only superpower". Do we really want someone like Trump, who is inexperienced politically and has little to no idea what he's doing, at the helm of this nation?

Trump is prepared to spend unnecessary money on the USA defense budget. Donald Trump, in a campaign advertisement, is quoted with saying the following: "I will rebuild our military and make it strong so no one-and I mean, no one-will mess with us." The United States isn't in need of a major military rehabilitation, however. A recent Global Firepower estimate ranked the United States's military as the best in the world. And with all the active peacekeeping operations around the globe involving the military of the United States, is it really a good idea to suddenly restructure and change the United States's armaments and military?

In conclusion, Donald Trump poses an active threat to world peace. He is the laughingstock of other countries, and if elected as president, will ruin our nation and could threaten the safety of the planet. Trump's policies are so utterly naive, foolish, and fueled by racism, hate, and misunderstanding, that the only way to topple the potential Trump regime would be to assassinate Trump himself. He would kill many more people through inaction and inexperience than just one person killing him.

Thank you.

Before I begin, I'd like to quote the title of this debate: "Donald Trump should be assassinated". Now I'll admit that Donald Trump has said some controversial things, but to want him to be murdered is too far. Donald Trump is proof that the American Dream is still alive; he turned one million dollars into four and a half billion, leads an extremely successful company, and is challenging the establishment by taking on average lying politicians for the office of the president of the United States.

So assuming, as you said back in round one, that Trump wins the presidency ("I will argue that Donald Trump should be killed... as he is being sworn in for president of the United States"), let's take a look at the people he may have ran against.

Hillary Clinton: A lying corrupt politician with horrible policies.
Bernie Sanders: Wants to increase taxes on everyone to pay for 'free' stuff. Also has horrible policies.

But before I get any more off topic, here are my reasons why Trump should NOT be assassinated:

1. If you don't like the president, you won't like his running mate. If the president dies, resigns, is impeached, etc. the vice president takes over. The vice president is always chosen by the candidate who wins the primary and usually gets along and agrees with the president as much as possible. So let's say you kill Trump, congratulations, he's dead. But then you have to kill his vice president (basically Trump 2.0). And trust me, once they increase security, it will be much more difficult. So really, you're not going to achieve much by killing Trump, you're just creating new issues.

2. Trump is potentially good for our country. I will firmly defend Trump's immigration policies, which have been ridiculed by many simply because they 'contradict American values'. Trump said, when he announced his candidacy, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people with problems and they're bringing those problems to us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." At first it seems horrible and stereotypical, but you have to realize he was specifically referencing illegal immigrants who come here to commit crimes or do harm. Trump's immigration policies are commonsense and fair, whether it looks like it or not (I'll clarify if you want).

3. Other countries would view us as weak if our own president was assassinated on his first day in office. Imagine what Russia and China would see us as if our own PRESIDENT was killed so easily! I really don't think Donald Trump's death is worth other military and economic superpowers shaking their heads and looking down on us.

4. If Trump ends up being really bad (doubt it), he can easily be impeached and replaced.

Look, I can see where you're coming from, but assassinating Trump won't do any good for America.
