Donald Trump continues to dominate the GOP polls, currently polling above 30% in some surveys and winning by double-digit margins in many. Some analysts dismiss Trump as a fad that will surely pass as the election approaches, however others see him as a legitimate candidate with a legitimate chance at winning the Republican nomination. Regardless of what one thinks about Trump's candidacy, there is no denying the fact that his rhetoric has shaken up the election cycle and forced Americans to address some controversial issues, such as immigration. Vice President Biden addressed Trump's rhetoric at an event yesterday, saying that Trump's comments are xenophobic and dangerous for the country.
At an Hispanic Heritage Month reception, Biden spoke about Trump's immigration proposals and his rhetoric toward Latinos. He described Trump as “one guy absolutely denigrating an entire group of people, appealing to the baser side of human nature, working on this notion of xenophobia.” He did assure the crowd, however, that “this will pass” in due time, and that they do not have anything to worry about in the long run.
What do you think about Biden calling Trump's rhetoric "xenophobic"? Do you agree that "this will pass" - or is Trump here to stay?
