I am still voting for Trump

Last week, a number of women came forward alleging that Donald Trump made unwanted sexual assaults on them including “groping”.

To their credit, a number of Christian leaders, stood by him by giving him the benefit of the doubt.

I would go further. For the sake of argument, I would assume the allegations were true, but would still vote for him.

Donald Trump is against political correctness, globalization, open-borders, unrestricted immigration, trashing the Constitution, crony capitalism and corruption. Hillary Clinton is the opposite. She wallows in the latter two.

Donald Trump wants to achieve “peace through strength” as President Reagan did. He wants to cancel the Iran Deal, support our friends and allies, stop the growing hegemony of Iran and defeat ISIS. Hillary Clinton, not so much.

Donald Trump names the enemy as “radical Islam” whereas Hillary Clinton refuses to do so.  I, on the other hand, see Islam as the enemy. The adjective “radical” adds nothing. There is only one Islam and it is radical. Donald Trump wants to be free to be critical of Islam. Hillary Clinton wants to impose a gag order on criticism of Islam and even to make it a crime.

Donald Trump is a friend of Israel. He wants to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital and to finally move the US Embassy there. He supports settlement construction and is open to alternate solutions to solve the conflict. Hillary Clinton supports the continuation of President Obama’s policies of freezing settlement construction and imposing the two-state solution on Israel along the 1949 ceasefire lines with a division of Jerusalem.

These are profound differences. Even if Trump's unwanted sexual advances reached the level of Bill Clinton’s, I would still vote for him. Too much is at stake. The future of America is on the line.

On the other hand, for the sake of argument, let us assume that their platforms were identical. One would be left to decide whom to vote for based only on their track records and character traits.

Donald Trump, if a sexual predator, stops short of rape or using force. He is a tough businessman in a tough business. He has built a very successful real estate company. He is a fighter and a winner.

Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar and fraud artist.  The facts are such as to lead many to believe that if tried in a court of law, she would be convicted of many serious crimes. These include, lying to Congress, destroying evidence after receiving a subpoena, selling access to the State Department and government for cash, treason and many more.

Her use of a private server for emailing confidential matters makes her a veritable security risk.

She started with a stable Middle East and turned it into a hellhole. Her policies lead to the creation of ISIS which is now wreaking havoc in over thirty countries.

She is also known for her hysterics which include yelling and screaming, throwing objects, abusing underlings verbally and using language that would make a sailor blush. How presidential is that?

Once again, I would still vote for Donald Trump.
