Generations of American parents have pushed their children to grow up to be presidential material. But a would-be President who insults women, spews profanity, is on his third wife, and calls anyone who disagrees with him a “loser” may not be someone to look up to. This is the kind of person that should not be running our country.

“I don’t care who is president as long as it’s not Hillary,” said a St. James junior.

Americans appreciate a President who has the confidence, and integrity to lead, especially in challenging times. Donald Trump describes himself as “a really smart person,” frequently mentioning his Ivy League education.

He promises to personally out-negotiate Iran, Mexico, Russia, China and any other international foe, but the main question that lies within the grass is, if he has a problem with China, why are his products coming from there?

What he does lack is humility, telling a large audience on The Tonight Show, “I will absolutely apologize, sometime in the hopefully distant future, if I’m ever wrong.”

Emily Smith said “Trump has some good ideas, but I’m not sure if he would be a good president.”

Presidential contenders typically draft detailed policies that they intend to pursue if elected. Beyond building a “great, great wall” along the southern border and sticking it to China, Trump has released few detailed policies. His website offers just five short position papers.

David Rolon said, “He really does not know what he is doing, in the presidential sense, but he is more of a businessman. He’s not appeasing everyone. He’s an idiot.”

He went bankrupt three times, and on top of that he tore down small businesses to fill up, and extend his own pockets. He intends to get America trillions of dollars out of debt, but how is this supposed to occur when the failed businesses? He’s a businessman, not made to run a country.

One final thing, not only has Trump said on Twitter that blacks and Latinos commit most crime in America, but he’s also on record saying that we should be giving Europeans access to America and a path to citizenship, but not Latinos south of our American/Mexican border. Why, Trump? Why does he seem to have disdain for racial minorities?
