Throughout Donald Trumps time in the American spotlight we have seen who he really is. From the beginning of his presidency we have seen insensitive remarks toward other racial and culture groups. Someone with that high a platform as the president of America there is a set of standards that should come with that. America was founded on the ability to create a better future for yourself and your children if you are willing to put in time and effort. Some of Trumps policies have went against what America values most like the freedom of opportunity. One examples of Trump being insensitive was when announcing his run for president he quoted on the idea of building a wall on the border of the United States and Mexico. With the idea of creating wall he also stated “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
In recent news we have gotten word of Trump calling African countries “shithole countries.” With all of these racist remarks by our president I think that we as a people need to take a stand and show that we will not accept this kind of leadership in our country. This country stands for freedom and equality and as we have seen throughout history we haven’t always been equal. When do we finally draw the line and say enough is enough and strive to make this country a better place for the now and also for the future generations that will come after us?
