LETTERS: Supporters questioned


Peace Arch News question – “Would you support Donald Trump if he was running for prime minister of Canada?” – is a moot question.


The Peace Arch News online question of the week – “Would you support Donald Trump if he was running for prime minister of Canada?” – is a moot question.

Trump does not live in Canada and certainly is not a citizen.

However, the question does make me wonder why anyone would support him. It has been a learning experience watching Trump over the past 12 months. Through his actions and words, he obviously is a misogynist, a person who dislikes or is strongly prejudiced against women; a bigot, intolerant toward those who hold different opinions from oneself; a xenophobe, one unduly fearful of what is foreign and especially of people of foreign origin; and a narcissist, excessive love of oneself.

Trump has been quoted stating that he loves the poorly educated. From the results of your question, it would appear the poorly educated love him.
