Electing Donald Trump as president would be like hiring a bully to be the principal of your school. Trump should not be elected as president. For example, he is telling his supporters to hurt people who do not support him.

Trump says that if a woman is not pretty, then there is no use for her. The president of our country needs to be a good role model and leader for everyone, which Trump is not.
