  • Trump orders Loyalists to Stop Hurting his Opponents

Trump appeared in an interview in which he ordered loyalists to his cause to stop hurting his opponents.

Donald Trump has a message for those who take his side. They ought to stop harassing minorities. In his first interview on TV, Trump spoke of how sad it made him feel when he saw Latinos and Muslims facing such blatant prejudice from his supporters.

Trump had the maturity and common sense to say that while he was a conservative person and a Republican that did not give his supporters any right to do what they wanted to do. Such a scenario would be a sign of anarchy and chaos.

Trump in a remorseful tone expatiated on the fact that if his acknowledgement would be of any help, he would like all such bigoted expressions of hatred and discrimination to end.

He said in his first interview to CBS' 60 Minutes that his supporters should just stop doing the things they were doing since they were not helping his cause by their actions. “The Donald” as his admirers know him, said that if his saying so will be of any help, he will just say “Stop It!”…

In fact, Trump had the courage of his convictions and turned to the camera focused on him and said in a loud and emphatic way “Stop It!” which clearly sent out an imperative message to his supporters.

Many of Trump’s vote bank members have gone on to scrawl racist messages on school walls and been a nuisance. This has worked in favor of his opponents who still continue thronging the streets saying that he is not fit to be President.

The 2016 election has had the most polarizing effect so far in all of American history. It has left the Democrats fuming and many minorities scared for their lives in an America ruled by the likes of Donald Trump.

However, Trump has also spoken out regarding the prejudice that the media was highlighting to its advantage. Trump said that there were just a few incidents of racism and bigotry and they had been blown way out of proportion by the media machine.

He pointed out that most of the incidents were characteristic of large white schools and were not symbolic of what went on in the rest of a democratic and free America.

Trump still did say that he wanted to take everyone along with him in a truly united America. So he was going to send the message loud and clear to his supporters to simmer down.

Now that he was in the position of President Elect, his earlier blustering ways had softened and been subdued and toned down a little. Trump explained away the anti-Trump protestors as just a load of hype created by the free press.

He said that it was a horrible thing to witness. The man who would soon be POTUS added that the press likes to make a mountain out of a molehill. They will take the smallest of incidents and blow it up till it is way out of proportion.

Donald Trump went on to address certain issues in the United States that had to be fixed. One of them was the FBI and its administration. He said that he was still thinking of whether he should ask the FBI director to hand in his resignation or not.

The FBI director, James Comey’s decision to end the inquiry into Hillary’s emails was something the Republicans took notice of. Trump said that he was still wavering over this issue.

While he did respect the institution that was the FBI, there had been leakages and he would have to ultimately talk in person with James Comey.

Trump admitted that the FBI director may have had very logical reasons to do what he did but it was still wrong as far as principles go. Comey still has half a dozen years more in office.

If he resigns it would be on a very premature basis. Trump furthermore spoke of how he was looking into the ethical conundrums that were perpetrated by Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.

She definitely made some very hasty decisions and he would have to weigh the pros and cons of dealing with her.

Trump said that same-sex marriages were something he wouldn’t oppose during his time in office. He said that since it was already a settled fact, he wouldn’t interfere in the matter at all.

However, Trump was dead against abortions. He said that he would do everything he can to uphold the law in this case. Trump spoke of how everybody was a lobbyist in Washington.

He said that he would clean up the whole place given the first chance. The system of government had gone foul. It needed rectification and correction. Trump said that he would do a better job of handling the grave threat of ISIS with his hand-picked generals.

Despite having little experience in this field of war games, he said that he could handle it with one hand tied behind his back.

The real surprise came when Trump said that he was not going to take any the money that went as a perk to being the POTUS. He would only take the nominal salary of $1 per year. His own business raked in billions. What need did he have for more money!
