A Review of Donald Trump's Controversial Views


American businessman and politician Donald Trump Donald Trump has increasingly been drawing criticism and opposition from a lot of people ever since he announced his bid for the White House last year. I am a common Indian, who has nothing to do with Donald Trump or his election campaign in the United States. I may also have some differences with him over certain issues; but, at the same time, I can’t ignore the plus points of Trump’s personality.

Trump is frank and straightforward: He speaks whatever he believes in, irrespective of what other people, particularly the Democrats, will think about him. He openly spoke his mind out on various controversial issues, including illegal migration, abortion, and the need to tackle militant organizations like ISIS.

Trump keeps the nation ahead of anything else: Many people, particularly human rights advocates, criticized Trump when he recently advocated for waterboarding, a kind of torture simulating drowning.

Advocating for the use of waterboarding, Trump recently said, “We absolutely need it. We should have it, and if we can have it, we should have worse. Now there are laws … and we want to obey the laws, the rules and regulations, even though ISIS doesn’t. It’s really hard to defeat people when you’re playing by different rules … They cut off heads … We have people out there who want to destroy us. They don’t have rules. They don’t have regulations.”

I am also a supporter of human rights; but only rights of the humans, and not of those who don’t respect the rights of others as the notorious ISIS is doing. ISIS has been raping women and ruthlessly killing people, including children, killing people. ISIS militants boast and take pride when they cut innocent people’s heads off. They share unbearable images of beheaded people on social networks, apparently to spread terror, without caring for human rights. Thus to use  torture techniques like waterboarding on such atrocious and wicked militants is not against human rights; in fact it will enhance human rights.

Trump is eager to take really bold steps:  The Republican front-runner presidential candidate is eager to take bold steps that are essential to help the United States regain the reputation that the nation enjoyed in the past.  Trump election campaign clearly states that the U.S. presidential candidate calls for a review of  US-China trade relations as currently  they are largely in favor of China, which has often been found guilty of bullying as well as spying on other countries, including India and the U.S.

Trump calls for building a wall across the southern boarder. His demand for a wall at the U.S.-Mexico wall has weight, given the growing problem of illegal Mexican immigrants. Many condemned Trump when he called Mexican immigrants ‘drug-peddlers,’ ‘rapists’ and ‘killers’. He might be wrong in calling Mexican immigrants ‘drug-peddlers,’ ‘rapists’ and ‘killers’; but not totally. The instance of shooting death of San Francisco woman 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle on July 1, 2015, by an undocumented Mexican immigrant identified as, who had been deported many times, puts enough weight to Trumps’ views.
