Donald Trump has become the most controversial figure ever to contest for US president’s post. From the beginning of his campaign, this maverick personality has been in the spot for one or other scandals. Senator McCain pointed out that he knew about the dark side of the Republican nominee, but like other Republicans, he too was silent through out his campaign. Now, Trump is facing a revolt in his own party over his sexist and pedophilia comments on women, part from the already strong allegations on profiteering, tax evasions.
It is not surprising that he is the only presidential candidate in last few decades, who refused to file tax returns. Well, he even takes pride in and publicly claims that he got away with “legally” by not paying taxes.
However, his actions and words against women and his support for pedophilia and rape culture have become, somewhat of a recurring event. Even if the voters choose to look past the fact that he got away with not paying taxes and his hostile comments on immigrants as well as his hate speeches, which promoted islamophobia, how can he be brought into power when he has no respect for the 50.6% of the population in United States, which the women comprise of?
If one is still naive enough to believe that the degrading comments that Donald Trump made about women in the recently leaked video, were just “locker room” chatters (by the way who talks about grabbing a woman by her p*&@y and making forced moves on married women, in locker rooms?), here is a list of sexual scandals that he is currently being accused for being a part of, apart from his demeaning statement about wanting to kiss every woman he finds attractive:
1. Donald Trump’s comment on 15-year-old Paris Hilton
Donald J. Trump agreed to the fact that he found Paris Hilton rather attractive when she was at the mere age of 15. As he looked at her, his only response was “who the hell his that”. If this does not affirm his pedophile nature, then here’s something else, his daughter (who was at the time 17 years of age) had to make him swear that he would not be romantic with anyone younger than her.
2. Demeaning women who appear in pornographic movies when he, himself, was a part of Playboy’s soft porn
When Hillary Clinton made former beauty queen Alicia Machado a part of her campaign, this is what Donald Trump had to say about it:
Wow, Crooked Hillary was duped and used by my worst Miss U. Hillary floated her as an “angel” without checking her past, which is terrible!

Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?

He called it a “bad judgement” on Hillary’s part, to involve Machado given that she was an artist of adult movies in the past. However, he did not bring it to public notice that he himself had been a part of playboy’s soft porn. He has also disrespected a number of adult movie artists on many occasions.
His actions are the proofs of his hypocrisy and misogynist behaviour, which cannot be expected of someone who wishes to be the president of Unites States of America.
3. His ex-wife Ivana Trump swore under oath in her deposition in 1989 that Donald Trump raped her
When the Harry Hurt III released his book Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump, it had been brought into light that Ivana Trump had sworn under oath, at the time of their divorce, in her deposition in 1989, that her former husband, Donald Trump had raped her. It was only when Trump’s legal team sent a notice to Ivana and Hurt, that Ivana claimed that she did not mean it in “a literal or criminal sense”. Although, she later confessed that she felt ‘violated’ when the two were sexually involved during the course of their marriage.
4. Sexual assault against Jill Harth, amongst others
The confession that he made which he later justified as “locker room talk” was indeed something he has done, not with one but with many women. Erin Burnett, who is an anchor at CNN, said her friend had faced the exact same situation with Donald Trump, as he narrated it. “That’s exactly what Trump did to me,”, “Trump took Tic Tacs, suggested that I take them also. He then leaned in … catching me off guard and kissed me almost on the lips. I was really freaked out.” Burnett quoted her friend. This happen at the time Trump was married.
Jill Harth, a former beauty pageant participant and the wife of one of Trump’s business partners, took a sigh of relief as the video leaked out, stating that people will now believe that Trump had actually assaulted her, even though she was married.
4. Donald Trump has allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl and is going to be in the court for the hearing on 14 October
A case that stirred the nation during the start of the 2016 Presidential Elections, was when Donal Trump was accused of having raped a 13-year-old girl. It had been dismissed in the court of California in May and filed in New York in April. According to the reports, Donald invited the teenager, promising her fame and money and an aspiring career in modelling, but instead raped her. Many had pointed fingers at the alleged victim and her family, asking why the report was filed after 20 years around the time of election, rather than when the rape actually happened. Here, is a snippet of what Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein have been accused of:
5. His modelling agency is still facing troubles for allegedly trafficking girls
Firstly, there was the news about, Trump hiring immigrant models, illegally, as the report released by Mother Jones informed: “Two of the former Trump models said Trump’s agency encouraged them to deceive customs officials about why they were visiting the United States and told them to lie on customs forms about where they intended to live. Anna said she received a specific instruction from a Trump agency representative: “If they ask you any questions, you’re just here for meetings.”
On top of that, the US Senator had Donald’s case of illegally hiring immigrant models sent to Department of Homeland Security, asking them to immediately initiate their investigation on his modelling agency, to check for any kind of human trafficking activities.
In the process, senator Barbara Boxer had sent the following letter to US Citizenship and Immigration officer, Leon Rodriguez:
To sum it all up, apart from being racist, hypocritical, and islamophobic, Trump is also sexist, misogynist, pedophile, has been accused of sexually assaulting many women, raping his own wife and a 13 year old and is accused, by the US government, of trafficking girls (who are a part of the immigrant communities he hates so much).
This social media post has hit the bull’s eye as it precisely describes people’s changing attitude towards the candidate of the Republican Party:
As the current First Wife of Unites States, Michelle Obama, has rightfully said about Donald Trump:
