Donald Trump to build border wall to keep immigrants out

The main theme of Donald Trump's campaign, and to his national security strategy is "clamp down on illegal immigration". His hard line on immigration will thus include a vast deportation force to relocate people to the other side of the wall, stretching nearly the length of the southern border, funded by Mexico and to implement this, he said, he would follow the example of the military-style roundups authorized by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954 (known as Operation Wetback) that expelled hundreds of thousands of Mexicans. He believes, this will reduce the population of 11 million immigrants living illegally in the United States.

The History behind the Donald Trump Small Hands

The History Behind Donald Trump

Donald Trump often refers to Marco Rubio, the Junior Senator from Florida as "Little Marco". Last February, while talking to his supporters, Marco Rubio told them (apparently knowing it would bother Trump), "Trump is taller than me; he's like 6 ft 2 inch, which is why I don't understand why his hands are the size of someone who is 5 ft 2 inch." Then he joked, "Have you seen his hands? And you know what they say about men with small hands -- ". You cannot trust them!"

Trump never leaves derogatory remarks unanswered, and his sensitivity to the insult dates back decades. Days later, at a Republican debate, Trump fired back at Rubio, showing his hands to the audience he asked, "Look at those hands. Are those small hands? A losing candidate said I have small hands and asked his supporters about the meaning of small hands. Many years ago, Graydon Carter (the editor of Vanity Fair) once said that to me. But, since then every person I meet they say I have great hands, I have strong hands, my hands are fine and normal."

Do you think Donald Trump has respect for women?

Donald Trump and his famous statement about Women

On May 17, 2016, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, debuted her primetime special 'Megyn Kelly' Presents. The big attraction of the night was her sit-down with the Republican Party nominee, presumptive presidential candidate Donald Trump. We might remember that in last year, on August 6th, Kelly had to respond Trump's personal attack, because Trump felt she unfairly questioned his antagonistic remarks about women. Kelly asked him about his history of calling women "pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals. Later, in his Twitter, Trump called Kelly a "bimbo," "crazy," and a "lightweight," and refused to participate in the next debate since Kelly was to serve as one of the moderators.

In last April Kelly mate privately with Trump and asked for a truce and requested a seat in her primetime special. Kelly is a very popular anchor because she has never shied away from the tough questions. This time she asked Trump about his presidential aspirations, failed marriages, and his alcoholic brother. She also asked him whether he has any regrets over any controversial remarks. Trump said, yes, but he does not want to them discuss here. When finally Kelly asked him about the last feud and calling her 'bimbo', he said "Did I say that?", "Okay, excuse me. That's not the most horrible thing. Over your life, you've been called a lot worse" .The program ended in a formal way, but Kelly did not get the apology she deserved.
