The only serious candidate

Donald Trump is not only a serious candidate for President of the United States of American, he is the ONLY serious candidate for the office:

The billionaire politician fired his stiffest broadsides in Texas – the ultimate American border state – at illegal immigrants, the ‘sanctuary cities’ that give them safe haven from deportation, and the pundits who have castigated him for declaring war on them all.

‘We are a dumping ground for the rest of the world,’ he complained. ‘You people are suffering,’ Trump said. ‘I’m in New York, but they’re in New York, too. They’re all over the place. It’s disgusting what’s happening to our country!’

Gang members who are in the U.S. illegally, he pledged, ‘will be out of here so frickin fast’ if he takes over the Oval Office.

And he returned to the brash rhetoric that made him a household name among immigration watchers, referring to child-citizens born of illegal immigrants as ‘anchor babies’ before allowing that ‘I don’t mean to be disrespectful.’

Trump said that just before emerging from the corner of the American Airlines center, where the Dallas Stars hockey team and Dallas Mavericks basketball team play, he had met with Texans who had lost family members to a crime wave brought north by illegal border-crossers.

‘Their sons, their daughters – killed by illegal immigrants!’ Trump boomed. ‘We have to stop illegal immigration!’

Chants of ‘USA! USA! USA!’ rang out even as a small group of immigrants’ rights protesters demonstrated outside.

‘We have to build a wall, folks,’ he said to a crescendo of cheers. ‘We have to build a wall. And a wall works. All you have to do is go to Israel and say “How does your wall work?”‘

He’s definitely listening to the Alt-Right and not the so-called “conservative media”. No wonder they hate him so much. If you’re even remotely concerned about immigration and its societally destructive effects, Trump is the only candidate you can possibly support.

One thing I think those who assume he is bluffing are missing: politicians are affected much more strongly by their wives than most people think. And look what is happening in Melania Trump’s homeland. I’m as cynical about politics as anyone, but I don’t see Trump doing a double-cross on immigration were he to win.
