With Election Day quickly approaching, many Americans are worried what our country will become under either candidate. Probably the most controversial person in the election is Mr. Donald Trump, and many Americans have some pretty strong opinions about him. But what does the rest of the world think of him?
According to alternet.org the global reaction to Trump has been an overwhelming sense of disgust, as he’s offended almost everyone. Mexicans have a special right to resent Trump as he’s pushed blackmailing Mexico into paying for a border fence and has called undocumented Latinos “rapists” who are “bringing drugs and crime.”
In France, The Liberation Newspaper wrote a recent cover story, “Trump: The American Nightmare.” Text that ran alongside his pink grimace declared him to be “vulgar and opportunistic.”
Trump has shared his distaste for China as well saying “we always lose to them” and that they constantly are “ripping us off.” The Chinese have responded by making comments about his hair and especially his wealth. A state newspaper said: “The theme of Trump’s speech for running for president: I really am very rich.”
This is to only name a few places, not to mention the countless other people he’s offended such as immigrants and Muslims from all over the world. No matter what your political view is it’s not hard to find something Trump has said that might even offend you.
