Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump gave a campaign speech in Youngstown, Ohio where he said he wanted to make America safe again. The quickest way to make America safe would be for Trump to drop out of the race for the Oval Office, but that’s not going to happen. He will have to be defeated by the American people at the ballot box for his nightmare of a candidacy to finally be snuffed out.
Offering no evidence Trump bellowed to the hungry audience that President Barack Obama’s policies, “led directly to the rise of ISIS, without question.” Part of Trump’s strategy is to assert information as true without offering any factual basis with which to follow-up. He did it again when he claimed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “launched ISIS onto the world stage.” Trump accused Clinton of wanting to emulate German Chancellor Angela Merkel, “Hillary Clinton wants to be America’s Angela Merkel and you know what a disaster this massive immigration has been to Germany and the people of Germany. It is a catastrophe.” However those keeping score Trump only raises this comparison because he’s throwing a temper tantrum after losing to Merkel for TIME Magazine’s person of the year award.
Trump then made the most ignorant comment on the night saying, “The time is overdue to establish a new screening test for the threats we face today. The U.S. should screen out any who have hostile attitudes to our country and its principles.”
Individuals who have hostile attitudes towards America are protected under the first amendment to not be censured by the government for sharing opinions which are not popular. If Donald Trump is elected president it is clear he has no intention of honoring the constitution, and will seek to curtail or outright repeal any aspects of American life which he personally does not find favorable.
