Donald Trump, the Republican Presidential Candidate, has said and done a lot to offend people. From degrading women to stereotyping races and misinforming the public, Trump leads his equally misinformed supporters to a dangerous practice of hate.

Trump prompted his extreme supporters to clash with Black Lives Matter protesters after several negative remarks on the movement. In response, Trump supporters would physically hurt and use derogatory terms to verbally attack them.

Aside from racist remarks from Trump, he’s also disrespected women throughout his campaign. He’s insulted several women on their appearance which, to him, seem to be the only thing he sees in them.

Trump supporters took the increasing issue of sexism to another level when they trended #RepealThe19th online. It all started when a tweet presented a graph showing all states voting for Trump if only men voted. This instigated Trump’s supporters to conclude that the only way for him to win is if women didn’t have the right to vote–that sets feminism back by a hundred years.

As if Trump supporters couldn’t get ANY more extra, they did. Trump called out journalists for accusing him of sexual assault, and his comments on the matter led his supporters to spiral into action following the steps of Trump’s attacks. They called journalists “Lugenpresse,” a term used by Nazis that means “lying press.”

Aside from what was aforementioned, Trump’s supporters engaged in other immense amounts of violence and acts of hate. Trump rally witnesses have seen the violence between groups with different beliefs, spurring hate towards anyone who didn’t believe in what the general audience believed in.

As the election nears, many voters are still on the fence about who to vote for, which is mind-boggling. Must a candidate, such as Trump, who disrespects all but the white man, even be considered America’s leader?
