Are students against Trump?


Sharon Sanchez and Kimberly Laura

In our quest to find a Trump suporter at AHS, willing to write for The A-Blast, we had no sucess.

Is it really a surprise that a majority of  students favor Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States?

There are a handful of students who would not admit to being supporters of the infamous 70-year-old Republican candidate.

From the start, Trump has always had a bad reputation. However, one can not neglect that people are in favor of him.

His policy, terms and plans go with the ideals of what some people think the United States shouldbe to make it “great again.”

We were not surprised that there were not a lot of students who would confess to being a Trump supporter, let alone willing to write for us.

Is that necessarily a bad thing? What does this say about our school?

Our school is very diverse. In fact, it’s one of the most diverse schools in the U.S. We’re a school who accepts everyone and does not discriminate others in terms of race.

We have various clubs that represent different ethnicities and identities, students who come from multiple countries and many who speak little to no English.

It is almost obvious to say that most students are more likely to be against Trump and what he stands for.

A number of people could agree that watching the beginning of this Trump era, that he would not have made it as far as he has.

Trump possesses unfiltered speeches and tweets. On May 5, Trump tweeted a photo of him eating a taco bowl, celebrating the Mexican holiday captioned ” I love Hispanics!” trying to seem in favor of latinos.  This is quite hypocritical when he wants to create

a border to prevent certain people from crossing. He wants to deport 11 million immigrants and have Mexico pay the expenses.

Previously, Trump has said he will call for a complete ban on Muslims entering the U.S. after the shooting in Orlando and California.

However, are we really going to put our hate of terrorism on all Muslims and ban them all?

Trump has even come out on supporting his son when he compared poisonous

Skittles to Syran refgees on Twitter. Trump Jr.’s post read, “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you. Would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.”

Many were shocked at the comparison and have even came out to state that “Skittles are not people.”

Ironically, according to The Washington Post, back in May, Trump has in fact said, “I am the least racist person that you have ever encountered.”

Donald Trump has really been quite a character in this year’s presidential election.

With all the humor and immaturity that he has brought with him, we will either have to witness more of his ridiculous behavior or soon forget him whether or not he gets elected this year.

“I don’t want Trump to win because he has no experience in politics. Personally. Donald Trump’s views on immigration and foreign affairs are inhumane. He’s also very sexist and he doesn’t care for the poor and the families that are struggling. He only cares about the wealthy because he grew up wealthy” sophomore Zain Ghul said.

This year’s election is critical. It”s important to vote this year because our entire reputation as a country is at stake. Diversity is one of the factors that makes America so unique.

When voting, choose wisely with the thought of everything that creates America in mind.
