Donald Trump Says He Could Shoot Someone and not Lose Voters

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa — In his characteristic braggadocio form, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday told students at Dordt College, a school that identifies itself as an institution for those “who are interested in a biblical, Christ-centered education,” that he’s so liked, that even if he shot someone in the street, it still wouldn’t effect his poll numbers.

“They say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that?” he asked during the Sioux Center campaign rally.

“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Trump declared, using his hand to make a gesture like he was pulling a trigger on a gun. “It’s, like, incredible.” Video footage captures laughter at Trump’s comments among those in the audience following the remarks.

Trump declined to clarify his statement to reporters following the rally, but posted on Twitter, “My speech was very well received. Truly great people! Packed house—overflow!”

Trump was speaking at Dordt College as a part of the push to get Iowan voters on board with his campaign prior to the Iowa caucuses. The college, according to its website, identifies itself as a private Christian liberal arts college, which is “[a]ssociated with the Christian Reformed Church.”

Saturday was not the first time that Trump has raised eyebrows with his comments on the campaign trail.

“Look at that face,” the multi-billionaire said of rival Carly Fiorina in September. “Would anyone vote for that?”

 “Can you imagine that, the face of our next next president?” he continued. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

In November, Trump came under fire for what seemed like a remark mocking a disabled reporter.

“Now, the poor guy—you’ve got to see this guy, ‘Uh, I don’t know what I said! I don’t remember!’” he said, jerking his arms in a contorted manner.

Trump later said that he didn’t know that New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski has a congenital joint ailment known as arthrogryposis.

Some have also remarked that Trump has used more profanity than any other candidate they have seen run for the office of president.

“Over the course of his time on Twitter, including in some cases after he announced his presidential candidacy, Trump has tweeted or retweeted profanity on his account more than 100 times,” reports the Washington Post.

“[Trump’s swear] words render him unfit to be a presidential candidate, let alone president,” wrote radio host Dennis Prager in a National Review article entitled “Donald Trump’s F-Bombs” in 2011. “Any fool can curse in public. … Leading Republicans need to announce that there is no place in the Republican party for profane public speech. You cannot stand for small government without standing for big people.”

    A friend from Canada asked me what I thought of Sara Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump. I honestly could not say anything positive about it. This man is not exibiting enough decent behavior to show me that he has any true Christian values which he lives by. He clearly appears to be a profane and arrogant person who has not been transformed by the Lord. God Bless You, Brother.

        Yes, I was fully supportive of Sarah Palin and I was stunned to see her endorsing Trump. Palin has a testimony of true faith and it is hard to say what is drawing her to Trump who does not!

    Sadly, I can’t see how America survives…having corrupted it’s Judeo-Christian foundation. Dumbed down and lost in their Selfies, they voted for another anti-Christian idol, Obama, twice. And they believed him, because he said he was Christian. Hillary says she is innocent of all her lies and Trump says he’ll ‘make America great again’. And their fans believe them. And Christian Ted gets Cruzified by the secular media.
    End Time Prophecy reveals most will be unable to see Right from Wrong…calling this The Reprobate Mind ( Romans 1:28). We are here.
