Debunking the most common lies and false charges against Trump

( By now supporters of presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump have repeatedly heard the critical “talking points” that seek to disparage him and his candidacy: That he’s racist; he’s misogynistic; he’s a bigot; and he’s not conservative.

It’s time to take these talking points apart one by one, and give Trump supporters some ammo to fire back at his detractors when the conversation turns to the 2016 election, which is most likely to be Trump against one of the most flawed candidates ever to step into the ring, Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump is racist

This is one of the most oft-repeated of charges, if not the most repeated. But Trump used to date a black woman; has married two immigrant women; has employed thousands of blacks, Hispanics and Asians at his various businesses and casinos; has five Jewish grandchildren – and this meme says it all.

The New York Times and other media have attempted to muddy the waters with straw-men arguments like ‘Trump has few minorities in executive positions.’ So what? Trump has always said he puts the right people in the right positions. That’s how billionaire businessmen operate.

As for minorities? Well,  more are supporting him than any other Republican candidate in memory. That poll can be found here.

The “racist” charge stems from Trump’s singling out of certain illegal alien minorities who are harming or killing Americans, and he is exactly right. His likely opponent wants to do something completely different.

Trump is a misogynist

Really? That’s not what his former top female executives say about their one-time boss. While they say sometimes he can be boorish, overall he gave them opportunities that few other billionaire businessmen would. As per The Washington Post:

But many women who have worked closely with Trump say he was a corporate executive ahead of his time in providing career advancement for women. While some say he could be boorish, his companies nurtured and pro­moted women in an otherwise male-dominated industry. Several women said they appreciated how Trump granted them entry to a new playing field.

He once called Barbara Res, who he placed in charge of building is iconic Trump Tower in 1980, “a killer” – a positive reference to her astute business acumen.

Misogynist, indeed.

Trump as a bigot

Hardly. Trump’s call to limit migration from war-torn Middle Eastern hotbeds of terrorism not only make sense to most Americans, but most Americans want it to happen. This is especially true following the recent Islamic extremist attacks in Orlando, where 50 Americans were gunned down by an agent of ISIS.

Trump’s proposal has nothing to do with bigotry, it has everything to do with national security. The far Left – led by President Obama and Hillary Clinton – are trying to get you to look the other way by focusing on guns and limits to the Second Amendment. But the fact is any sane, reasonable person cannot look at the terrorist attacks in Orlando – as well as the prior attacks in San Bernardino, Ft. Hood, Texas and elsewhere throughout Obama’s tenure – and blame anything other than Islamic extremism.

The question should be asked of these detractors: How is defending one’s home and country bigoted?

Trump as not conservative

Trump’s plan to cut taxes on businesses and corporations, cut regulations, battle illegal immigration, defend life and religious liberty, defend the Second Amendment, nominate constitutional originalists to the Supreme Court, and foster economic growth and business development are all conservative policies.
