    I have to explain myself to the numerous amounts of people who hate Trump and his campaign for reasons that make little to no sense. I don’t support Trump because I hate Mexicans, I don’t support Trump because Muslims are the biggest threat to America, and I don’t support Trump because he called Carly Fiorina ugly (although we all can agree that was a top 5 moment in this campaign season so far). Donald Trump doesn’t support any of this either. Trump doesn’t hate Mexicans--he hates illegal immigrants and undesirables (Cartel members, Human Traffickers) coming to America and threatening our standard of living. Trump doesn’t hate Muslims--he hates radical islamic terrorism. This is something that we do have a problem with and he wants to try and fix it. Trump doesn’t hate any minority group. When you look at his campaign and not the campaign that the Mainstream Media is trying to present to you, you can truly see where Trump stands, and why he would make a good president.

    My number one reason for supporting Trump is this -- people wrote him off from the beginning and now as the presumptive nominee to the GOP, he is still proving people wrong. In a way, this reminds me of myself. All throughout high school, I’ve been written off as some sort of  “contrarian, bomb thrower” whose only goal in talking is to offend and appal. This label, amongst many others, gave people this certain idea of who I must be as a person, without truly getting to know me. And now, as I eviscerate those people and their ideas, they finally see that I’m not just a flamethrower. I have dedicated myself to politics and government. I am currently taking AP Gov, I put together Debate Night and I am constantly discussing both sides of political issues with my friends, peers, and teachers. I know so much about politics, a lot more than the majority of teens my age today. So this lack of respect that I’ve been dealing with throughout high school is unjust. I shouldn’t have to endure insults and threats because I have a differing opinion. Since the first day of his campaign, Trump has had to beat his way to the top. From CNN, MSNBC, and even Fox News trying their best to end his campaign, he has fought them and has won. That’s why he’s my candidate.

    Then came along people in his own party after the Indiana Primary, spouting off the ridiculous notion that Trump is somehow breaking up the Republican Party. But yet, it seems to me that all of the voters are behind him, a solid majority of the delegates are behind him. So who’s trying to break down the Republican Party besides the elites whom Trump has no allegiance too? And that’s where the problem is. Trump isn’t owned.

    Money in politics is a necessary evil to getting elected. The more money you have, the greater the chance you have of entering the office. Which is why PACs and SuperPACs take themselves so serious. They give you all the money in the world, but only if you swear allegiance to them and their plans. This is why Trump is considered so dangerous by the Media and the Elites. All of this money is intertwined, the money from the PACs is going right into CNN’s pocket and vice versa. You need that money if you want to succeed. That is, if you aren’t worth 4 Billion dollars and know exactly what it is you’re doing.

    Trump isn’t some racist, misogynist buffoon. He’s a smart, caring, man who’s completely independent of the money that has broken Washington. His ideas are fresh, his approach is new. Don’t believe everything you see on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Breitbart, Twitter, Facebook. Do your own investigating and make your own opinions.
