LOL, it's so hypocritical and hilarious to witness cwjga and others criticize Hillary while they continues to keep their silence as Donald Trump shows his disdain for minorities and I guess that cheating and stealing is the new Conservative platform as well. In regard to Paul Ryan whom I formally respected,held back his support but now states that he disagrees with Trump while stating as well that "I'll vote for him" Tell us who is the biggest hypocrites when we receive criticism about supporting Liberals.

What an apt depiction of Trump's real talents. Pissing on people, adolescent behavior, lack of impulse (and apparently bladder) control, snarky expressions, etc. What an example for America. What great inspiration for other nations to follow the US lead.

In the letter, dated Monday, the Texas Democrat agreed with the real estate mogul on a series of issues: that the federal government has failed veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs needs to be improved, the State Department and Mexican government should be more aggressive in addressing cartel violence and corruption in Mexico, and felons who are in the U.S. illegally should be hastily deported.

“There might even be a few other things on which we can agree,” Vela wrote. “However, your ignorant anti-immigrant opinions, your border wall rhetoric, and your recent bigoted attack on an American jurist are just plain despicable.”

Trump has called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S., a wall on the southern border that Mexico will pay for and the deportation of some 11 million undocumented immigrants.

“Your position with respect to the millions of undocumented Mexican workers who now live in this country is hateful, dehumanizing, and frankly shameful,” Vela wrote, arguing that most of those individuals work in hotels, restaurants, construction and agricultural fields.

“If I had to guess, your own business enterprises either directly or indirectly employ more of these workers than most other businesses in our country,” he continued. “Thousands of our businesses would come to a grinding halt if we invoked a policy that would require ‘mass deportation’ as you and many of your supporters would suggest. That is precisely why the Republican-leaning U.S. Chamber of Commerce agrees that these workers deserve a national immigration policy that would give them a pathway to citizenship.”

Noting that Mexico “no doubt” has its problems, Vela also hailed it as one of America’s largest trading partners. Citing the Chamber of Commerce, he said the trade relationship is responsible for 6 million jobs and hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue from importing goods from and exporting goods to Mexico.

“Why any modern-thinking person would ever believe that building a wall along the border of a neighboring country, which is both our ally and one of our largest trading partners, is frankly astounding and asinine,” wrote Vela, who added that he would tear to pieces any walls on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Vela accused Trump of descending to “a new low” in his latest attack against Indiana-born federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel. Trump ramped up his rhetoric on the judge last week when he suggested Curiel, whose parents were born in Mexico, couldn’t preside fairly over Trump University fraud cases because of his heritage, coupled with the fact that the tycoon has proposed a border wall that Mexico will pay for.

Vela also highlighted that Americans of Mexican descent — “that you mistakenly refer to as ‘Mexicans,’” he wrote — have served this country in every conflict since the Civil War. His own family helped defend this country after his great-great-grandfather came to the U.S. in 1857, he said, noting that his grandfather and his brothers served in both world wars.

“His great-grandson, my father, served in the U.S. Army and, coincidentally, was one of the first ‘Mexican’ federal judges ever appointed to the federal bench,” Vela wrote.

“His great-grandson, my father, served in the U.S. Army and, coincidentally, was one of the first ‘Mexican’ federal judges ever appointed to the federal bench,” Vela wrote.

“I would like to end this letter in a more diplomatic fashion, but I think that you, of all people, understand why I cannot. I will not presume to speak on behalf of every American of Mexican descent, for every undocumented worker born in Mexico who is contributing to our country every day or, for that matter, every decent citizen in Mexico,” Vela concluded. “But, I am sure that many of these individuals would agree with me when I say: ‘Mr. Trump, you’re a racist and you can take your border wall and shove it up your ass.’”

So El Trumpo claims that his remarks about Gonzalo Curiel, the Federal judge overseeing the class action suit against him, have been misconstrued. In recent interviews, Trump's exact words were "we’re building a wall. He’s a Mexican. We’re building a wall between here and Mexico. The answer is he is giving us very unfair rulings." Curiel was actually born in the US of legal immigrants from Mexico and has been an American citizen since birth. Prejudging the qualifications and integrity of an entire group of people based solely on their heritage or their parent's nationality is obviously bigoted at best. It's pretty clear that Trump believes that no one with Mexican heritage can be trusted in this case, or, in other words, allows his bigotry to influence his actions.

Moreover, Trump specifically singled out Judge Curiel at a campaign rally in San Diego, not only belittling the Judge’s Mexican ancestry but also threatening to “come back” in his capacity as President to testify in the case. It's clear from the context of his speech that Trump meant this as a threat to the Judge’s authority.

Belittling behavior and threatening statements are not the qualities that will "make America great again." If that is the example set by the President of the United States, should others, from elected officials to ordinary citizens, follow his example? And more importantly, how will other world leaders react?

In the past, Trump threatened to bomb North Korea's nuclear reactor in a preemptive strike: "as President I would be prepared to order a strike – using conventional weapons – against North Korean targets if it prevented nuclear blackmail or the nuclear destruction of the U.S. population."

Imagine the reaction from North Korea's Kim Jong Un if a President Trump, with access to US nuclear codes, blurted out such a statement? Let's hope there would be time for Trump to later explain that he was "misconstrued."

I was misconstrued you little weenie !!

In the last 100 years, I doubt if any presidential nominee of the two major parties has not ever not won the support of all members of congress of their party. This is unprecedented, isn't it?
