Donald Trump has announced his dislike for Mexicans and Muslims, immigrants and other minority groups. He wants to institute laws against foreigners who are entering as refugees, and possibly for those who are already in. The White House Press secretary announced that Trump is disqualifying as a presidential candidate: “To support somebody for the presidency who articulates these views, I think is a pretty clear indication that you don’t have the right judgment to serve as President of the United States.” In support of Trump, Sarah Palin responded to his opponents: ” “Herd mentality running rampant with hypocritical and/or naive pundits trying to crush Donald Trump because he’s committed to clobbering the bad guys, and putting the good guys first.”
