Donald John Trump was born on June 14,1946 in Queens, New York. Trump is an American businessman, politician, television personality, and author. He is a businessman that wants the best for “America” and goes by a slogan that says “Make America Great Again.” While Trump is a businessman, many wonder whether he could be a politician for the United States.


The majority of Trumps’ views are very ignorant and biased when he elaborates on them in debates and interviews. For example, Trump talks about a “Great Wall” that he will build for our borders so that illegal immigrants can’t get over and live here for free. I thought America was for “the land of the free and the home of the brave!


I sat down with NMHS Juniors to ask them their opinions on the controversial public figure.  Here’s what they had to say:


Kyle Naimaster(‘17) What do you honestly feel about Trump’s Presidential run?

“The idea of Donald Trump being the 45th President of the United States is a nightmare. He has no political background and makes significant claims of things he will do as President with no explanation as to how they will actually get done. The Mexican people are a huge asset in America, and their work and place in society is taken for granted too often. Mexicans who come to America illegally are just looking for a suitable life that as of right now Mexico cannot offer. Donald Trump should not be president and America will be in danger if he is elected.”  

What makes him completely unprepared for presidency?

“Like I said before, he has no political background, and minorities in this country can be in danger if he is elected. As seen before in history, when you give a man great power who is prejudiced against certain races or religions, it almost always ends in disaster.”


Julian Abreu(‘17) How do you feel about Donald Trump running for president? Do you think it’s a publicity stunt? What makes him so different from all the other candidates?

“I think Donald Trump running for president is solely a publicity stunt. He is an unqualified and ignorant man. He is aiming to do what he believes is right and not what is better for the country.”

Do you ever think he could make America great again? Do you believe anyone can make it great? “I personally think America will never be great again. With all the corruption that goes on in our government and all of the lies, America will never surpass the greatness that occurred during the Colonial era. It’ll take more than just a leader to make America great again, and definitely not Donald Trump.”  

Do you believe anyone who follows him is ignorant, racist or both?

“I believe that people who follow him or agree with his ideals are very ignorant and possibly racist. It all depends on what they agree with. An example of an ignorant idea of his is wanting to deport all immigrants. Donald Trump has made billions of dollars off of the backs of immigrants and now he wants to deport them?”


Cristian Hernandez (‘17) What do you think about his presidency run?

“To me, in my opinion, Trump is a political mastermind. He knows exactly what he’s doing and the reason behind it is already planned out. He uses great tactics that people consider racist. Him being racist is winning votes from other racists. I do not like him myself, but I believe he is a very smart politician and will win because of this. The “Great Wall” is political stunt for those who believe in it.”
