In arguably the largest blow to his campaign, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump lost several potential female voters after the release of audio of him making inappropriate comments toward women back in 2005.
His words are unprofessional and utterly insulting. Trump has a history of making unnecessary comments about women, including to fat-shaming former Miss Universe, Alicia Machado, sexualizing his own daughter in 1994 and recently, saying that presidential nominee Hillary Clinton doesn’t have a “presidential look.”
“The disrespect of our ambitions and intellect. The belief that you can do anything you want to a woman. It is cruel. It’s frightening,”Michelle Obama said in a speech in a Clinton rally on Oct. 13.
Trump’s recent scandal doesn’t necessarily come as a shocker, but with 55 percent of registered voters being female, there is no doubt that it won’t result without consequence. A survey conducted by ABC News after the release of the footage revealed that 62 percent of female responders are now more unlikely to vote for Trump.
“I wanted to be able to support my party’s nominee…However, I am a mom and an American first and I cannot…support a candidate for president who brags about degrading and assaulting women,” Republican senator Kelly Ayotte said.
I can’t fathom the idea of having such a disrespectful and misogynistic president running this country. Valuing a woman solely from her looks strips away the many positive and influential qualities she holds.
His immigration plans on and building a wall on the Southern border hits close to home because of my Hispanic background. Calling Hispanics criminals, “drug dealers” and “rapists” not only makes him unappealing, but is another example of his incompetence to be the leader of this country.
“When human rights are involved, when immigration rights are involved, when discrimination and racism is involved, we… have to take a stand,” journalist Jorge Ramos said.
Fortunately, Trump is low in the polls compared to Clinton, especially with Latino voters in swing state.
In an election where the female vote is essential and in a country with a growing population of Hispanics, I never expected to have been so intrigued and anxious over the results of the election this November. If there is one thing I know for sure: in no way is Trump suitable to become the president.
“This is not politics as usual,” Michelle Obama said. “This is disgraceful. This is intolerable.”
