Donald Trump is simply not a serious candidate for president. 
This is manifested by his parroting Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions on the vaunted Trump immigration plan Trump recently released. Sessions comes from Alabama, and he reflects the long-standing low information view of the modern integrated world best represented by former Gov. George Wallace, the racist official who stood at the door of the University of Alabama 50 years ago chanting, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” Then he stood aside while U.S. Army troops integrated the university. 
On the subject of Mexicans, Sessions is today’s George Wallace.
Trump played the hate-Mexicans plank of his campaign in his original announcement on June 16. Without mentioning “illegal aliens” he declared that Mexico was sending its worst people here illegally to avoid paying for them and their transgressions. He stated simply “Mexicans” with the qualification that “some Mexicans” were “nice people.”
Trump has tried to mollify his hate-Mexicans words with declarations that he loves the Mexican people and Mexico. Rumors abound that his 30-year-old daughter, Ivanka, tried to counsel him to lay off, but he continues and stamps his campaign with a 1,900-word position paper that smacks of Alabama’s historical Ku Klux Klan.
Some Americans agree with him; some don’t.
Here's a simple-minded statement from Trump's proposal: “U.S. taxpayers have been asked to pick up hundreds of billions in health-care costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc. Indeed, the annual cost of free tax credits alone paid to illegal immigrants quadrupled to $4.2 billion in 2011. The effects on job-seekers have also been disastrous, and black Americans have been particularly harmed.”
Now the facts: "Illegals" are not eligible for any of the programs he claims drain the U.S. Treasury. As for tax fraud, far more is committed by U.S. citizens than ever imagined by people in the country illegally. Blacks have been unemployed in far greater numbers than whites since 1865 – not because of Mexicans coming to work in the U.S. 
Trump: “The impact in terms of crime has been tragic. In recent weeks, the headlines have been covered with cases of criminals who crossed our border illegally only to go on to commit horrific crimes against Americans. Most recently, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, with a long arrest record, is charged with breaking into a 64 year-old women’s home, crushing her skull and eye sockets with a hammer, raping her and murdering her. The police chief in Santa Maria says the 'blood trail' leads straight to Washington.”
Partially true, but did the crime occur because the perpetrator was here illegally? Are the thousands of black murder victims killed by fellow blacks, being that they are black, victim or perpetrator? That is Trump logic.
Trump: “In 2011, the Government Accountability Office found that there were a shocking 3 million arrests attached to the incarcerated alien population, including tens of thousands of violent beatings, rapes and murders.”
Partially true but hiding a horrific lie: Many of these arrestees were charged with multiple counts, like spitting on the street, driving without a license or being intoxicated. And how many of those arrested were actually convicted of the crimes they were charged with? 
If there had been three million “convictions,” more than the 6 percent – the actual figure – of all "illegals" would be in prison. And most of them (85 percent) because of crimes having to do with property, drug offenses and immigration violations, not crimes of violence that Trump lies about.
Trump: “Meanwhile, Mexico continues to make billions on not only our bad trade deals but also relies heavily on the billions of dollars in remittances sent from illegal immigrants in the United States back to Mexico ($22 billion in 2013 alone).”
False and foolish. There are no bad trade deals with Mexico. There is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that in 21 years has produced millions of jobs in the U.S., while there might be a loss of a fraction of those millions of jobs over the same 21 years. 
The Wilson Center says 6 million Americans work in trade with Mexico. Mexico is the largest trading partner with Texas (400,000 jobs) as it is with California (690,000 jobs). The U.S. Chamber of Commerce's estimate is even higher: They say there are 14 million Americans working in trade with Mexico. 
As far as remittances, aren’t they dollars earned in the marketplace, and after taxes and Social Security have been deducted? We know that Trump favors confiscation of private property (he supports the Supreme Court's controversial decision about the eminent domain Kelo v. City of New London case), but now he hints that he would confiscate money earned on the job by Mexicans. Theft, thievery – is that what Trump lives by?
In this first analysis installment of the Trump immigration plan we find that he lies about crime, states that he would steal millions of dollars from working people, violate the rights of “persons” that the Supreme Court has said are entitled to the same rights as Americans – “equal protection” and “due process.”

Trumpy Slams Evangelical Christians in Playboy

Christians Cringe at Donald Trump’s Sexy Past
Trump’s numbers with Evangelicals are up—but not all of them are singing his praises

Trumpy interview By Playboy WOW
Evangelical Christians, at the moment, are totally enamored with a candidate who has profited off strip clubs, cheated on his wife, and appeared on the cover of the nation’s pre-eminent porn magazine.
And to top it off, Jerry Falwell Jr.—the heir of the Moral Majority mantle—just endorsed him.
There’s plenty of explanations for conservative Christians’ Trump-lovin’ ways, and recent polling shows he’s these voters’ favorite (a new NBC poll shows him with the most support of white Evangelical Republican voters, 37 percent).
But this trend has many Evangelical leaders irate, perplexed, and hankering for some below-the-belt attacks on Trump. The time for policy analysis is over, they say—now it’s about to get Biblical, Falwell be damned.
Minutes after The Washington Post broke news of the Liberty University president’s endorsement, Russell Moore, a powerful Southern Baptist leader, subtweeted Falwell with a link to the Southern Baptist Convention’s 1998 “Resolution on Moral Character of Public Officials.”
“[W]e urge all Americans to embrace and act on the conviction that character does count in public office, and to elect those officials and candidates who, although imperfect, demonstrate consistent honesty, moral purity and the highest character,” the statement reads.
Some Evangelical leaders hope Trump’s moral character will get a little more attention in the coming days. When it comes to the mogul, there’s a ton of material to work with—and attacks like these have worked before. Allegations of sexual harassment tanked Herman Cain’s insurgent-style campaign, and a scurrilous (and untrue) whisper campaign about an affair likely played a role in John McCain’s loss to George W. Bush in 2000. The fact that Ronald Reagan got divorced even once gave many conservative primary voters pause when he first telegraphed his presidential ambitions. And to this day, most Republican presidential contenders act like caucus-goers are voting for the winner of a Bible verse memorization contest.
So far, Trump’s top foes have largely steered clear of attacking him based on his sexcapades and scandals. Even while he and Rubio lob birther-esque attacks at Ted Cruz for being born in Canada, Trump has evaded any hard-hitting criticism for his multiple marriages, casino ownership, and appearance on the cover of Playboy magazine.
A series of tweets from Sen. Ben Sasse, a freshman Republican from Nebraska, may suggest that the days of giving Trump a pass over his New York-values personal life are over.
