It’s the year 2016 and anyone with any sort of access to international news knows the name Trump. Donald Trump.

However, depending on your stance on the election you may view him differently, for example people from various ethnic backgrounds, religions and sex have all fallen subject to Trump’s outbursts.

In the news we hear melodramatic speeches from Trump about who is to blame for the chaos and crime around us. We are fed such lies, that everyone starts to become ignorant towards understanding minority groups. In seek of direction; it is easy for people to follow the views of Trump as sheep following a flock.

Trump has openly spoken about black people saying “you’re living in poverty, you have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed, what the hell do you have to lose?” He was also recently found discussing women in an interview from 2005 stating, “when you’re a star they let you do it, you can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” Such derogatory comments have done nothing but lessen the development of our society, inhibiting our cohesion whilst aiming to divide us all.

It appears the point of the election is to ‘divide and rule.’ Once you label people and categorise them by highlighting their differences, it is almost like life is a competition. Instead we need to remove the labels that divide us through the hierarchical structure of society.

Trump and those with a similar outlook, can be considered as damaging to our society. Some of his backwards-presidential aims would only slow the progression we’ve made over the last 30 years. If we all believe his notions without understanding his proposals, we could face an unjust America.
