Have you not kept up with his antics during this election cycle?



Nothing that exciting.
no?

I predict those within your country which he has disenfranchised and the already marginalized will band together

I predict race wars and great harm

and then there will come the attacks from outside of your country

everything the tightie righties fear this idiot will bring to bear

I believe so

Clinton, of course. She's not a buffoon, knows foreign affairs and has a sold handle on reality. Trump not so much.

Clinton, of course. Trump will alienate any potential Muslim allies in the war against terror, both in this country and elsewhere. Why would any Muslim anywhere agree to assist Trump do anything?

Hillary will because not only is she hawkish for a Democrat and has more and broader first-hand diplomatic experience than any other presidential candidate I can remember, but the guy she's running against is already being used as a poster child in ISIS' recruitment campaign.

In other words, the poll's a no-brainer.

Yet he policy on stopping Muslim immigration, may cross party lines? Based on a one issue answer- yes or no.

Because he's the POTUS, plain and simple. That's the sole reason any "potential Muslim ally" would do anything for any American president. Hillary is a female, no "potential Muslim ally" is going to do anything but appease her.

As far as domestic terror goes, Hillary will stir up the militia types and Trump will stir up the BLM morons.

For foreign terror types, it will depend on whom each would appoint to DOD and security posts and how much they listened to those they appoint. Trump will appoint people who will do the job, he will expect and inspect their performance, and he'll listen to them. Hillary, it's all about politics and making her look good.

If you're going to rely on a politician to keep you safe from a terror attack then you've already lost. The responsibility for your safety lies on your shoulders and yours alone.

So do you envision US Muslims lining up to help Drumpf before or after he has banned any of their relatives from visiting them and put all of them on a watchlist?

Trump. He is smarter and is more willing to think outside the box.

I don't really consider terrorism to be much of a threat to my own safety. That said, I can only see Trump antagonizing more people than Hillary, so I voted Hillary.

Did you really mean appease?
