Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Someone in this thread mentioned that those that voted for Trump also have a disregard for minorities and immigrants, and he/she is absolutely correct. If you would do a secret poll in Europe I would expect most to state that muslims are now welcomed. The fact that the polls did not predict a Brexit or Trump win is simply because people do not want to be labeled a racist and hide their views. Now that these thoughts are becoming more mainstream I expect this way of thinking to gather much more momentum.


A scary thought for those that crave stability, but nothing unprecedented if you look back at history...
I'm not sure if a lot of people already have racist views or if these views are being encouraged/sanctioned by politicians as a means to win votes/gain power. Did most Germans already blame the Jews for their problems before the rise of Adolf Hitler and National Socialism or were they encouraged to believe this by them?
