As stated last week by candidate Donald Trump, “Those who do not believe in the Constitution or who support bigotry and hatred, will not be admitted to immigration into our country.” That has been part of the Trump stump speech since the beginning of his campaign.

Such comments could easily apply to him, as well. He is a bigot, sows hatred for our fellow Americans and has no idea how our government works. For example, he says to his believers that Hillary Clinton is going to repeal the Second Amendment.

That is nonsense. Repealing any amendment requires the approval of a majority of states.

From his Mussolini-like stance (arms folded and chin jutting) when he delivers his speeches to the tenor of his proclamations, it appears that Trump thinks he’s running for dictator.

From his remarks about the Second Amendment, he clearly supports the assassination of a duly elected president. He also has bragged about his bribing of public officials with campaign contributions (that’s how the system works, he says), which I think is criminal.

He is facing a major fraud case involving hundreds of bilked students who each allegedly paid as much as $35,000 to attend Trump University, which, according to New York’s attorney general, is essentially a trade school. If anyone’s going to jail after election, it could be Trump.

Trump says he is going to run government like a business. Our government is not a business with a lot of bowing and scraping and “Yes, Mister President, right away Mister President.”

Ask President Obama about that. Herbert Hoover, a wealthy and brilliant engineer (Trump isn’t in his league) is the last businessman elected president, and we all know how that turned out.

I’ve always wanted to ask Trump what his staff uncovered about President Obama’s birthplace. Trump’s last words on that subject were, “You won’t believe what they found!” I’m still waiting.

Has he ever apologized to our president regarding those lies? Of course not. That would take a kind of class that Trump has no idea even exists.

Reject Clinton ?and outsourcing

Hello, blue-collar workers of America. I am writing this for all of us. Who am I? Really no one of any worldly standards, I am a Christian first, an American second and a union supporter third.

Let’s deal with the issues facing our families because of reduced incomes. The Democratic National Committee has created an environment of dependence for minorities and low-income white families. It controls your votes and your path out of poverty by bringing immigrants to take your jobs and lower your wages.

I worked 42 years for the same company. I stood with my union brothers and sisters on the picket lines, with our jobs in jeopardy. We did not worry about the color of our skin.

We were union. I saw union and management treat us disrespectfully. We blue-collar workers stuck together. Minorities still have a harder time getting their abilities noticed because of the prejudice of others.

I am asking my union brothers and sisters to renounce Hillary Clinton for president. She will outsource jobs in America as Bill Clinton did with NAFTA. The Democratic National Committee is slowly pulling away from supporting unions.

Tough choice ?for president

Do we send Hillary Clinton back to White House as president of the United States? Many Americans believe Hillary is a liar, dishonest and untrustworthy.

As secretary of state, she disregarded the State Department’s procedures for the transmission of private and government emails. She created her own methods, using private devices installed in remote locations, unsecured and not sanctioned by the State Department.

The FBI investigation concluded she didn’t intentionally subvert America. It acknowledged she blatantly mishandled America’s secret data, which could have put America at risk if hacked. This issue calls into question her fitness and competence to be our next president.

Our other option is to elect Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul. The Donald is an egotistical, brash, offensive, narcissistic showman. He has incoherent thought patterns explaining foreign and domestic issues.

Is Trump the commander in chief we want with his hands on the nuclear launch codes?

America must decide. I’m voting for the best of the two worst candidates in my lifetime.

Donald Trump is the last “person” standing.
