Don't encourage Trump any further

Posted7/31/2016 1:00 AM

How much more outrageous do Donald Trump's actions have to be before everyone realizes that he is not just a joke but actually dangerous?

Mr. Trump is now encouraging the Russian government to hack into Hillary Clinton's email. This statement is bordering on treason.


It seems that Mr. Trump continually tries to escalate his inflammatory rhetoric just to see how outrageous the American public will allow him to be and still stand behind him. He is an embarrassment and more importantly, he is damaging this country and its reputation.

The man is divisive, insulting, bigoted and a liar. His words and actions are tearing our country apart.

Please, if you thought of Donald Trump as an "outsider" or a crusader for the "little guy," think again. His personality is such that I believe it is just this side of unstable. His narcissism and egocentric nature is going to destroy this nation.

We cannot afford to encourage his antics any longer, unless we are willing to risk the safety, honor and security of this country. Please, think carefully before supporting this embarrassing and dangerous man.

Hillary Clinton isn't perfect by any means, but if you compare her with Donald Trump, she is far and away the more qualified and stable candidate for the job of president of the United States.
