Narcissist, Misogynist, hot-headed, obnoxious and on top of all a Billionaire, sound familiar? Yes, I am talking about the 45th President of The United States of America, Donald John Trump.
Since announcing his candidacy for President- and then actually bagging the job thanks to the US election results 2016. we’ve been exposed to a steady slew of ridiculousness from the businessman-turned-TV personality-turned-Leader Of The Free World. An endless list of controversial statements from the man himself caught my attention.I have no idea where to start. If a black man wishes to become the President of the United States of America he need to have a degree from University of Columbia, needs to be an editor of the Harvard law review and then the president of the Harvard Law Review, a research assistant to a constitutional scholar, an associate at a law firm, a US senator. But if a white man wants to be the president of The USA he needs to be rich and white.
Who is Donald trump?
A guy who hates women but has himself been married 3 times till date, a man of his word I guess. Unsurprisingly, given his opinions on beautiful women, Donald seemed to enjoy his sideline as president of the Miss World enterprise (which is basically like being president of the United States, right?) an organization that put teenage girls in heels and bikinis and then had them jump around on stage. So how did he go from gauche billionaire to potentially having his finger on the red button? Well, he’d been talking about politics for years, first suggesting that he might run for election in 1988, and suggesting it regularly until 2012. In 2013 he spent an estimated $1 million dollars on research into becoming President. But it wasn’t until June 2015 that Trump called a press conference at the Trump Tower in New York and announced his intention to run for President of the United States, whilst the whole of the rest of the world collectively shook their heads.
I’ve been following him since the time he announced his run for the President, The first and a very controversial statement given by him was about the second amendment and Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump said that Hillary Clinton wanted to “essentially abolish the Second Amendment” because of her support for gun control. General Michael Hayden, who is the former head of the CIA, stated that “If someone else had said that outside the hall, he’d be in the back of a police wagon now with the Secret Service questioning him.”

And his comments which sometimes incited people for violence started coming up. One of them being the comment on Captain Humayun Khan, a U.S soldier who was killed in Iraq in 2004 by a suicide bomber and later was awarded a bronze star medal and a purple hat. Khizr Khan spoke about his son and criticized Trump for his Muslim ban proposals, asking if Trump had ever read the U.S constitution, and offering to give him a copy. He stated that Trump had “sacrificed nothing and no one.” Trump responded to the criticism on Twitter, stating that Khizr Khan “viciously attacked me” and tweeting: “This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart!” Later, Trump released a written statement saying “Captain Humayun Khan was a hero to our country and we should honor all who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our country safe”, adding “While I feel deeply for the loss of his son, Mr. Khan, who has never met me, has no right to stand in front of millions of people and claim I have never read the Constitution (which is false), and say many other inaccurate things.”
Trump frequently praised Russia’s Vladimir Putin, calling him a strong leader, “unlike what we have in this country, a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond, “and wondered if “he will become my new best friend.” He continued to praise Putin throughout the campaign, comparing him favorably to Obama, hailing Russia as an ally in fighting ISIS, and downplaying any suggestion that Russia had behaved aggressively in the world. He also dismissed the assertion by U.S. intelligence officials that Russia is responsible for the computer hacking of Democratic party organizations and individuals. Trump called for closer relations with Russia and has surrounded himself with a team of advisers who have had financial ties to Russia. No wonder why Russia has been accused of hacking and tampering the US elections in favor of Trump but as there are no proofs of this it would be wrong to accuse someone.
The list of his controversies is very long and rather interesting this is just the start. You can get a vague idea of how good a man he is with this comment” it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.” I hope America is ready for what is coming.
God bless America.
