    Well, he's certainly encouraging anti Mexican sentiment, "when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best"
    It wasn't the best wording, but it's true that illegals do rape a lot more

    And okay so the possible next president of the USA doesn't care about important political and religious issues in his own country. That's encouraging.
    He prioritizes issues that have been left untouched for so long, such as destructive free trade deals and trade deficits.

    May I remind you that the Republican Party gets corporate donations so you can't say "trump is funding his own campaign..." Because he isn't completely,

    It's still a huge generalisation of an entire group of people, including legal immigrants from Mexico! Some of his followers will take what he says literally, bad wording or not. And I see your point but I'm saying his message is not good and really incites violence and racial hatred in a country already struggling with racial divisions. He thrives on the hatred really, every time he says something controversial his popularity increases.

    I think he should prioritise issues that are important right now in this general election so that his followers know what they're voting for. Yeah he has mentioned issues that have been left out but he needs to prioritise things at the forefront of politics in order to win the election. Still I'd prefer if he did not win so hopefully he won't think of any actual policies other than "build that wall".

    And on Hillary's emails, I don't think they'll find anything important in those emails, if they were the FBI wouldn't have let her go. And yeah maybe you'll claim it's all corrupt and fixed but I think he's concentrating on a story that's reached its peak of controversy already. Still, if he has nothing to hide in his taxes why won't he publish them already like every other presidential candidate has to avoid it being a weakness in debates?

    check his website, it explains your questions

    https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/pay-for-the-wall
    So you're answer is that Mexico will pay for the wall.
    Okay.

    Seriously, you think that Mexico is going to pay for it?

    I can't quite believe the cult around Donald Trump.

    I'm not quite sure which is more ridiculous out of the following:

    (a) That building a wall is a good idea.
    (b) That Mexico will pay for the wall.

    Trump's supporters by and large seem unable to actually engage in a debate about the policies they are proposing. As soon as you question them, they just refer you to the rhetoric of Donald Trump.

    When they answer a question seriously with ' he's going to make America great again', it is terrifying.

    He always talked about illegals, there was no doubt about that.. Trump is in favor of immigration but it must be legal.

    Renegotiating NAFTA, opposing TPP and globalization are why he is popular in the first place .. He will get many votes of blue collar workers that would normally vote Democrat.

    No it doesn't. It explains some weird delusion that Mexico are going to pay for it.

    Mexico have said numerous times that they are not going to pay for the wall. Can you explain to me why they will? I don't want you to send me a link. I want your answer.

    Because if they don't they will lose out more than the cost of the wall.

    Yet they have explicitly said they are not paying for the wall.

    The logic of Trump supporters seems to be 'Mexico will pay for the wall because we're America and we're going to be great again'.

    The idea that Mexico are going to pay for the wall is ludicrous.

    not only is hilary corrupt in terms of her general administration (emails, money laundering, being bribed by corporations, changing her political image like the wind's direction) but she's corrupt in terms of her actual intentions, or at least grossly negligent (especially with regards to libya and iraq) - there is no ****ing god-bloody gosh damn way she ought to have any sane person's vote. the only reason anybody would vote for her would be because she's a woman, which is sexist.

    Without doubt: Hillary.

    How anyone can subscribe to Trump's ridiculous xenophobic policies I don't know.

    Not to mention he's mysognistic and would do nothing for LGBT rights.
    Did you know that Bill Clinton shared a number of Trumps policies, then again, he's a Democrat so when he said them 20 years ago they were brilliant.

    This is like asking you if you want to wipe your arse with value toilet roll or sandpaper, neither are very appealing.
