Why Do You Support Trump?
Start writing a post

Growing up in the political climate of the twenty-first century has been nothing short of interesting. With presidents accused of being non-American Citizens, and some having conspiracy theories chasing them it is no wonder politics in America is a joking matter. The main event of the joke happens to be Donald Trump. When Trump was elected into presidency the world as we knew it ended. Our president's main form of communication became tweets, his wife stealing speeches from previous first ladies. In this article, I won't be taking a political stance on what Trump has done to this country the good nor the bad.

I will be coming at this article from a humanistic approach and preach out morals because a man without morals is no man to follow.

Let us start with misogynistic comments, shall we? In 2018 Trump had a rampage of tweets following the Stormy Daniels showdown. He tweeted calling her a "horse face" among countless other offensive tweets. In 2015 during his campaign, he bashed Clinton with awful comments about her appearance, "Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?" from September 9, 2015. Trump is someone who will say whatever to get the attention off of him and in the end, be a bully while doing it. It seems as though he never graduated from elementary school where name calling should have stayed.

Moving on to his complete idiocy, his stance on global warming. With articles and reports being published year-round of the dangers of climate change, and the effects on the planet from PLOS Biology and "The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science" anyone who disagrees with climate change is disagreeing with evidential facts based off of years of research. The fact that our president took his time to tweet out a mockery of climate change, implying that he believes Global Warming is only, in fact, the warming of Earth.

Trump also took America off the table for the Paris Climate Deal in 2017.

Finally, we can talk about all of the unspeakable laws that Trump has passed? In 2018 there was a tsunami of reports of the immigration camps that Trump signed an executive order on a policy to detain entire families together in these "camps" ignoring the legal time limits on the detention of minors.

The only counteract for this is that Trump is putting America first, but this can be slapped back into the Trump supporter's face. Trump is turning his back on American soldiers after tweeting in 2017 that he would ban trans military service. The Trump administration will be able to enforce its ban on transgender people serving openly in the military. Trump backed his ban up by stating that "Our military must be focused, cannot be burdened with the disruption that transgender in the military would entail." Trump's ban allows transgender soldiers to fight, but only if they enlist under their biological gender.

All of these tweets and horrible comments are just a pinch in the bowl full of questionable things that the president has done during his short term so far. None of these include the racist comments that the president has made or even the rape and sexual assault allegations by more than thirty women. The president has done a few things that have benefited our country but the questions that I keep coming back to are is the good outweighing the bad? And what if he wasn't a white wealthy man? I encourage you to do your research, to ask yourself questions, and to take a stance for this country because after his presidency Trump will go back to a multi-billionaire, while we have to stand back and try to fix what is left of our broken country.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

25798

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
