I think that Donald Trump should be the president of the United States

"We the people, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice and ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty, to ourselves and our prosperity..."

This is the Preamble to the United States Constitution. It was written by the Founding Fathers to outline their bold new vision for a democracy. It was a brilliant new social experiment, and at the forefront of this was the idea to create a government that was free of discrimination and oppression. The document itself created a protocol for a government in which it was almost impossible for a single group or individual to take complete power. In the Bill of Rights, the Founding Fathers outlined the rights of the people. It is this document that will prohibit Donald Trump from doing most of what he claims he will do.

I have many, many, many problems with Donald Trump and his outlandish proposals, but at the forefront of these grievances is his proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States. In the First Amendment to the Constitution, the establishment or prohibition of any one religion is banned. "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." When Donald Trump says that a ban on Muslims should be imposed, it is quite obviously in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. The "logic" behind the ban is that keeping out Muslims would reduce terrorism, right? But a FBI investigation has proven that 94% of all terrorist attacks carried out on US soil were by non-Muslims. So not only would this ban be ineffective, it would also demonize a large group of already victimized American citizens, breeding more hate and prejudice towards said group. With this profiling would come more radicalization, as the feeling of being outcast and unwanted inevitably creates anger and more violence. So the irony of this ban is that it would not only fail at keeping terrorists out, it would fail spectacularly by creating more resentment and unnecessary hatred on both sides. So that won't work.

That's my major problem with Donald Trump politically. As a person, he's even worse. Here's a few quotes from a New York Times article, "Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved with Women in Private":

"'That must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees,' he told a female contestant on 'The Celebrity Apprentice.' Rosie O"Donnell, he said, had a 'fat, ugly face.' A lawyer who needed to pump milk for a newborn? 'Disgusting,' he said."

"He simultaneously nurtured women"s careers and mocked their physical appearance. 'You like your candy,' he told an overweight female executive who oversaw the construction of his headquarters in Midtown Manhattan."

This is also a man who says that he would likely be dating his Ivanka Trump if she weren't his daughter, and makes dismissive comments about people who have worked for him or been on his show. Also, coming from a man who clearly only values women for their looks (he's been married three times; his current marriage is to a beauty queen), it becomes increasingly hard to believe him when he says that he "respects women." This is 51% of the population we're talking about.

Please, please don't Make America Hate Again. This truly is a tipping point in our politics. There is a choice here--to head down the dark path that Trump is leading us into or firmly reject this racist, misogynist fool who threatens the very fabric or democracy. If we choose the latter option, we can then focus on making strong, bipartisan solutions to the world's many problems.

Eagerly awaiting your response and thanks for this debate! :)

This man is exceedingly bigoted and shows repressive and authoritarian tendencies. He's a rich man only out for himself. He doesn't care about the disillusioned or the poor. He doesn't care about those who feel as though they've been left behind. He's a greedy, rich pig who only cares about himself. This is what people need to realize. Donald Trump has gotten so much success because he says that he is standing up for the people who have been left behind by the political parties and their own government, but he is saying things like these only because it's in his self interest.

Please don't forfeit this next round. It gets lonely debating by yourself.
