Since his campaign started, Donald Trump has been doing everything he can to alienate every decent human being possible. CNN recently compiled a list of the different people he’s spoken down about, but here are some they missed.
Trump’s refusal to rule out creating a database for all Muslims is one of the stand-out events of his campaign. He’s also said that Muslims celebrated when the World Trade Center went down on September 11, 2001. To round the religious hatred off, he said he’d consider surveillance of mosques and shutting some down if any “bad things happen” i.e terrorism. It looks to me like he’s trying to play spot the difference between Trump’s America and Nazi Germany.
“When Mexico sends people over, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people with lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re bringing rapists.” He then went on to expand his racism saying, “It’s coming from all over. South, and Latin America.” He provided no statistics, no data, no facts. Just a ridiculous opinion based on absolutely nothing. His nonsensical views have resulted in only 18 percent of Latinos taking him seriously as a candidate.
Trump recently retweeted a picture of fake statistics on black violence.

It turns out the statistics were fake, and the “Crime Statistics Bureau-San Francisco” doesn’t even exist. He even defended his actions while speaking to Bill O’Reilly, claiming it was “just a Retweet.” He even had the nerve to ask Bill O’Reilly of all people “Hey, Bill, am I gonna check every statistic?” Is that too much to ask of someone who wants to be President of The United States of America?! To check statistics before retweeting them?!
After expelling reporter Jorge Ramos for daring to ask him a question at a press conference, he then told him to “go back to Univision.” He also had these tweets for the Wall Street Journal, who wrote a piece criticising his lack of knowledge of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal.
When and how are the dummies at the @WSJ going to apologize to me for their totally incorrect Editorial on me. I want "smart" trade deals.

.@KarlRove is a biased dope who wrote falsely about me re China and TPP. This moron wasted $430 million on political campaigns and lost 100%

A lot of Trump’s nonsense comes from his Twitter account doesn’t it? Someone maybe needs to have a word in his ear about it. Here are some of his tweets on science.
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.

Any and all weather events are used by the GLOBAL WARMING HOAXSTERS to justify higher taxes to save our planet! They don't believe it $$$$!

6. War Veterans
Specifically, prisoners of war. Now, I dislike John McCain as much as the next guy. Trump’s comments on him however, were completely unacceptable. Trump said:
“He is not a war hero. He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured, OK? I hate to tell you. He is a war hero because he was captured.”
He later refused to apologise to McCain, stating that people who don’t get captured never receive the accolades people who do get captured receive.
Now, Ben Carson is not very high up my Christmas card list. I hope he receives no Christmas cards. However, what Trump said about his abilities as a doctor is largely misplaced.
“He was a doctor, perhaps an OK doctor,” Trump said of Carson, an internationally-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon who was the first person to ever successfully separate cranially conjoined twins in 1987. “He was fine, he was just fine.”
Now, I don’t know much about the field of medicine. Does Trump? To make such statements, is he so qualified that he can judge Carson’s ability as a neurosurgeon?
Trump also had these tweets on vaccinations.
I am being proven right about massive vaccinations—the doctors lied. Save our children & their future.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 3, 2014
I'm not against vaccinations for your children, I'm against them in 1 massive dose.Spread them out over a period of time & autism will drop!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2014
Looks like we need to fire all the medics in the country and hire Trump since he knows so much.
It seems like Trump is a really sore loser. After Ben Carson caught up with him in the polls in Iowa, Trump had this to say “How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of this country to believe this crap.” This was in reference to Carson’s lies about his life story.
9. Seventh-Day Adventists
Donald has an obsession with fellow GOP candidate Ben Carson, doesn’t he? Trump insulted Seventh-Day Adventists while taking shots at Ben Carson. Trump said:
“I’m Presbyterian. Boy, that’s down the middle of the road folks, in all fairness. I mean Seventh-Day adventist, I don’t know about that. I just don’t know.”
It’s like everything Trump is not, he’s against.
In more Trump racism, he implied that Asians can’t speak English properly. In reference to his ability to make deals with China and the Far East.
“When these people walk into the room, they don’t say ‘Oh Hello, how’s the weather? It’s so beautiful outside, how are the Yankees doing? They’re wonderful, that’s great.'” “They say ‘we want deal!'”
That’s how you alienate another group of people, suggest that they all can only speak broken English.
11. His Competitors
This goes for both sides of the coin here. Republicans and Democrats. You’re probably sick of reading about his attacks on Carson. Well he’s mocked Carly Fiorina’s business acumen, called Bernie Sanders a “communist” and a “maniac,” said Hilary Clinton’s hair is fake, called Marco Rubio a clown and also implied that Rand Paul is ugly. Talk about rubbing people the wrong way!
As well as what he said about Mexicans and South American immigrants being rapists, he also plans to build a 2000 mile wall separating Mexico and the U.S. He also plans to “round up in a very humane and nice way“ all 11.6 million illegal immigrants in the U.S and deport them. This could cost around $100 billion-$300 billion. Surely America has better things to spend a quarter of a trillion dollars on?
The latest group of people Trump has offended comes in the form of the disabled. Trump, commenting on a statement made by a New York Times reporter who has a disability which inhibits the movement of his arms, waved his arms in a mocking way to imitate him. Trump has since refused to apologize.
The common theme in all of this is: Trump says something to offend people, then refuses to apologize. It begs the question, after alienating all these people, who exactly is left to vote for Donald Trump?
