Kareem Abdul Jabbar on Donald Trump

Donald Trump the man has had numerous failings in America and has come back from those same failings like a mythical Phoenix. I do not believe that he has the ability to help America as a leader or as a whole. His ideals are very business oriented and not very explicit on world views either. To many of that has seen the blurbs of him on the television, we are mostly caught off guard to what he says and how he aligns himself with the world. He has no filter, he has no real political background, he has no worldly morality. His worldly morality if he had any would not have any thought of race or segregation at all. This man speaks of very violent things as if he is in the locker room with his buddies after a round of golf; but he says them publicly and on the news. Then after he has stated these obscene words and phrases, and has had a chance to see what he looks like, then wants to try to state that we who have seen it saw it wrong that we have taken his words out of context; it was not what he meant. Donald Trump is a real estate mogul, who at this late stage thinks he can help America as he has helped himself. Donald it doesn’t work that way what worked for you will not work for America. There are too many variables involved, to many different nationalities to contend with, to many different religions to deal with. Dealing with all that and then some is what a president deals with in the first 10 minutes of his day. You couldn’t even handle the questions and comments of a FOX analyst. You should really look at why you are running and if it is aligned with truly helping America or just Donald Trump. The policies and platforms are important for the American people to know what you stand for. Last time I heard you were still talking border patrol and keeping people out of America. Mr. Trump it would be great if you had a plan and some political knowledge. It would show clearly when interacting with the media, supporters, and protesters of your campaign.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar had a few this to say on the matter as well. I found this posted video on the Huffington Post Politics site. In it Mr. Jabbar speaks about Mr. Trump and his wanting to close Muslim Masques and ban Muslims particularly. Take a listen please?

This is not a candidate for America. This is a candidate for himself. Haven’t we had enough of this type of person in the White House. We stood for Change let’s continue to do so. Look to go forward not fall backwards. We all have a responsibility to this country just as Mr. trump does. With this type of person in the White House we will all have lost. If he gets the nod it is our own fault, we will have no one to blame but ourselves. When we ride our highways; we see on each of the signs on our great highways. “Let’s Keep America Beautiful” people. We must vote as a nation and ensure that we continue to move forward as one people. Mr. Trump and others like him want to keep the nation divided. Let’s not allow that. Mr. Jabbar echo’s what a lot of other people think.
