Filipino Arizona voters say Trump’s leadership ‘divisive’

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. – Violence once again erupted at a Donald Trump rally, as a protester was sucker-punched at his Arizona event on Saturday.
The victim, Bryan Sanders, said he went to the rally because of what he called Trump’s fascism, racism and attitude towards women.  The suspect, Tony Pettway, is facing misdemeanor assault charges.
At the rally, Trump said, “We love our protesters, don’t we?”
Arizona is having its primary Tuesday and Trump highlighted his goal of increasing border security in America, once elected.  “Unless you have a border you don’t have a country folks, you don’t have a country, remember that,” he pointed out.
Some Filipino Republicans here think Trump’s momentum can’t be stopped even if there are reports of violence in his rallies and even if both the Republican and Democratic parties are plotting last ditch efforts to stop him from bagging the nomination.
Marie Cunning, national president of the Federation of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce expressed, “I like Trump because he has the guts to say what the rest of us are thinking and we just don’t have the guts to say it.”
But this Filipino Democrat said Trump should be stopped, because he and his supporters are detrimental not just for the Republican party but for the entire country as well.
“He is a symbol of divisiveness even to the Republican party. If he is voted as the president, he’ll be a divisive president.  His supporters right now, I’m sorry to say, are bigots and are desperate,”expressed Jim Madrid.
Despite having the most number of delegates to date, Trump may still not get the nomination.  Even a third party option is being considered by the GOP.
Santi Patino, another Filipino voter said, “The desperate measures taken against Donald Trump only reflects the kind of leader he is. If he is polarizing  in his political beliefs and he is not able to unite people, then that’s more of a sign that he should not be a presidential candidate (to support).”
If Trump wins the Arizona primary on Tuesday, he will take the 58 delegates at stake and will remain ahead of his main rivals, Texas Senator Ted Cruz with 423 delegates and Ohio Governor John Kasich with 143.
1,243 delegates are needed to win the nomination.  Trump has 673.

    There were 30,000 well behaved Trump supporters at Tucson, Arizona, but very unsafe with disruptive protester. While Trump was speaking, the protester moved around carrying a sign that read “Trump is bad for America”. A black supporter grab the poster, then punched him, he fell down into the ground, then kicked him really bad. Its common sense, if you are a Democrat, never provoke 30,000 Republican, simple as that.. Another violence, happened during the Trump rally at Phoenix ,Arizona, while Trump delivering his speech, another protester wearing a KKK white robe, walked around inside the stadium. Surounded by 20,000 Trump supporters, what would he expect..,. Prior to that, another group of protesters, blocked the highway leading to Trump rally in Phoenix which causes miles of traffic jam. I blamed the Democrat for creating the violence,Trump GOP supporters are peaceful.

    People that go to see Donald Trump sometime act like little kids. When you go see Trump it’s all about backing Trump to be our leader, not make fun of him , like calling him names. Look people before you all say something bad about Trump, why don’t you all wait and see if he get to win to be our leader, And if he wins lets see if he can make America great again,and if he don’t make America great again, than you all can call him bad names. Look at Obama we gave him 7 years and he didn’t do nothing to help the American people. So lets wait and see if Donald Trump wins and see if America will come great again. So people lets all act like grown-up not like little kids.
