    Poorer Americans aren't happy with the way the current government seems to constantly ignore and beat them down, so they've voted for a maniac with one giant middle finger.
    I realise that the phrasing here makes it sound like Donald Trump has one giant middle finger. This is, in fact, false given the tininess of his hands.

    At one point Trump literally said 'I love the poorly educated' :lol:

    His wife (the third one) is a foreigner. I didn't know that he was antisemitic. Regarding homosexuality, he is quite tolerant of it for a Republican. Nothing wrong with Islamophobia.

    "Nothing wrong with Islamophobia".

    Please explain.

    Muslims are people - normal people. And deserve to be treated with respect.

    He also wants to make LGBT persons go through "Christian" conversions and therapy- eventhough its been outlawed and been proven to cause depression and that it doesn't work.

    And Islam is an ideology. Nothing wrong with hating an ideology.

    And how many people have been killed by Muslim terrorists since 2000 compared to non-Muslim terrorists?

    1. Do you hate all religions that way then? All major, and minor, religions have contributed to terrorism.

    2. Actually, statistically, way less than non-muslims. (Would you like links?).

    3. They where labeled "Extremists, with extreme beliefs"- not terrorists.

    I dislike religions yes, but only one major religion is currently a major threat.

    No, they were not. You are being dishonest. The IRA and ETA are on the Foreign Terrorist Organizations list by the way.

    He has groped women, insulted women for not being good enough to sexually attract, he treats women nothing more than sex objects, he has had 12 cases of sexual assault filed against him, has a pending rape trial, wants to get rid of muslims, wants to torture the LGBTQ+ community, is racist, women are scared to wear hijabs seeing thats he's won. Now the question is whats right with him?
    so why do people still vote for him then?

    I'm talking internationally. Not everything revolves around the USA. And no it's not the only major religon of which is a threat - Christianity is also a MAJOR threat. From shootings, to cults and to mass killings. Just because you don't see Christianity in the media, doesn't mean it's not happening.

    Furthermore, between "82-and-97% of Muslims are victim to Terrorist attacks". http://www.globalresearch.ca/muslims...rnment/5516565

    This is a thread about the USA and we don't live in the Third World. I know that people of any religious background kill each other in backwards countries.

    I was asking the number of victims of terrorism -- not some vague and undefined "terrorist attacks" (which can be a trash set on fire) -- in the West, or the USA. It's obvious that with 9/11 alone, Muslim terrorism is miles above the rest.

    Yeah, cause if the result had been the other way round, Trump's fanatical and nationalist gun-loving supporters who wanted Clinton in jail would have totally accepted it and had no problem with it wouldn't they :rolleyes:

    The stakes are high for a lot of people and whichever way it goes, the losers are going to be unhappy, it's got nothing to do with whether you're a 'leftie' or a 'rightie', tbh I think the backlash would have been far worse and possibly more violent had Clinton won.
    Yeah if Clinton had won Trump would have reacted VERY badly!

    People like you don't seem to get that there are millions of people that despise what Islam stands for.

    If you started up a cult in which multiple marriages was ok, child marriages was ok, killing anyone who disagreed with your ideals was ok and treating women as possessions was ok then I'm pretty sure in most civilised countries the followers of that cult would be imprisoned and the cult banned.

    Not every Muslim is like that but their religion allows and encourages them to be if they want to. It is a sick perverted religion!

    The elitists of the world are losing their hold over people and are beginning to panic just like with Brexit and the left are furious but nobody has given him a chance? How do we know what type of president he will be everybody is condemning the guy before he's even started doing the job.

    Move along.
