Fil-Am voters weigh-in on Trump poll dominance

LAS VEGAS, NV – The Mystere Theater at Treasure Island Las Vegas played host to Donald Trump’s campaign rally. Speaking before a packed auditorium, the billionaire tycoon reiterated his dominance in the polls.

The Republican presidential candidate said, “I love polls.  Some people say, ‘He talks about polls and the other people don’t’.  That’s because I’m winning and the other people are losing.”

During his one hour spontaneous speech, Trump threw jabs at his fellow GOP opponents and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.  He also talked briefly about his plans for America: bring back jobs to America from China and reduce taxes of the middle class.

But what created a stir was his multiple attacks against the media.  He said, “The level of dishonesty is incredible. Some are fine but the level of honesty in the media — they’re so dishonest,” expressed Trump.

Meantime, Trump pointed out that he is different from other candidates — because he funds his own campaign and he is not beholden to any interest group.

Some Pinoys in the audience said that they are supporting Trump because he is not a typical politician.  Carlo Ponzal, a Trump supporter said, “It will be good for the Filipino community if we have a stronger economy.  It will promote more jobs, especially for Filipinos here in the United States.  We have a lot of problems here in the U.S. and Mr. Trump gets it.”

But Ron Solis, another Fil-Am voter said Trump’s lack of experience in the political arena is a big gamble for America.

“He’s a businessman and he doesn’t really know how to run a country.  He is just a media circus, a one-time deal.  Down the road, he’s not the real deal,” said Solis.

With just four months to go before the GOP caucuses, Nevada is proving to be a key state that would help determine which candidates will end up bagging the Democratic and Republican nominations.

      Trump is certainly not Reagan. But I would vote for him in a second against whatever socialist the democrats put up, and I love his stirring the pot and waking up the other self satisfied RINO candidates that must now address the same issues that Trump is addressing and getting huge support.

    Look people tell me one person that got into the White House, knew what he was doing? They all was like Donald Trump, so please don’t say that Donald trump lack of experience in the political arena is a big gamble for America. Look Donald Trump is a winner and Trump like to tell the truth about our dumb leaders in our country. So Filipinos if you want someone to fight for you the right-way? Vote for Donald Trump…

    For those who says Trump has no experience to run the government, What do you think of Obama? He was a senator before he became POUS, now the US is in chaos! Take Reagan, he was not even a lawyer like Obama and he came out to be one of the 10 best president of the US!
