US should wake up to the danger of Trump

Published 09/08/2016

Probably the smartest person alive in the world today, Stephen Hawking, stated about Donald Trump: "He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."

I wonder: what if the unimaginable happens and Donald Trump became President of the USA?

If you know anything about history, there is not much difference between fascist leaders Hitler and Mussolini, and Trump.

The fascist leaders had control over the voters by making them believe that their belief in them was voluntary from their own free will (volitionalism). Of course, it was anything but.

Trump's speeches are demeaning to women, abusive to Hispanics and his rallies are very violent towards anyone with opposing views.

Wake up, America - before you fall into the nightmare of a Trump presidency.
