This post is to counter all the blind character assassination against Donald Trump.


PRO-WOMEN

"Donald Trump employs more women than men at the upper echelons of his real estate empire, and in many cases pays them more." http://dailycaller.com/2015/08/17/att ... le-execs-than-male-video/ To add to this, "today, according to Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, there are more women than men holding executive positions in the Trump Organization, heading such departments as human resources, golf and hotel management, and global licensing, even though women make up just 43 percent of the overall workforce. Women who are in similar positions as men, Cohen said, 'are compensated at equal and in many cases higher pay rates.' ”

"Black Female Executive Speaks Out About Working For Trump Family" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxaKUo5naoY

“I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate-mongering groups, campaigns and messaging,” wrote Patton, director of the Eric Trump Foundation and assistant to Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. She said the video was not part of her employment, but was triggered by the reaction Trump has received during his campaign.

“To the skeptics who will undoubtedly claim that I am doing this at the behest of the Trump family or with the promise of reward, I deliberately chose not to seek their approval nor counsel in advance to this video for fear that there would be more concern for me and its potential viral ramifications than they would be for themselves and the fact that quite simply this is the right thing to do,” said Patton, who posted the video on YouTube and has been flooded with comments on Twitter.

Barbara Res at 33 years old became the first woman to ever be put in charge of supervising the construction of a skyscraper, when Donald Trump hired her in 1980. http://imgur.com/PK6YiDr A section from her book:

"Unfortunately, construction remains a heavily male dominated industry, but in 1972, it was a "no woman's land", and Res met resistance at every turn, in the form of discrimination, sexual harassment and intimidation. She was literally barred from the work site, a move that prevented her from advancing in her job. She quit several positions because of discrimination. Finally, she took a chance on a part time position she parlayed into a career beginner with a major Construction company in NY. After holding several "men's jobs" in contracting, Res met Donald Trump, at the Grand Hyatt project he was developing for the hotel company. She impressed him and when he had a new ground up project, he installed her as Executive in charge of Construction. The project was the world famous Trump Tower and the rest is history - a history filled with travail and triumph."

Over two decades ago, 50 percent of the people in his business inner circle were women. He hired people regardless of whether they were men or women because he thought they were going to be the best for the job. He treated them equally. He mentored them and allowed them to advance. Many of his female employees were better paid than men (naturally, as many of them had worked for him for longer). http://news.yahoo.com/whats-up-with-d ... -women-not-090043983.html

"Trump: a champion of women? His female employees think so." - Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/politic ... 7-453018f9a0ec_story.html

"Donald Trump's History of Promoting Women" http://www.breitbart.com/big-governme ... story-of-promoting-women/

Trump's spokesperson is Katrina Pierson, a black woman.

Trump on women, from "Crippled America"

"Anybody who wonders how I feel about women should just take a good look at the Trump Organization. My positive feelings about women are reflected in the number of women who have worked in my organizations. I placed women in important leadership positions in the Trump Organization long before anybody else gave them that opportunity because I knew they could handle it. I was the first developer ever to put a woman in charge of a major construction project in New York City."

[...]

"I’ve done things that nobody else has done. The 68-story Trump Tower, on Fifth Avenue right next to Tiffany’s, was the tallest entirely glass-exteriored building in Manhattan when it opened in 1983. That helped pioneer the modern luxury-building industry. One of the things I’m most proud of about that building is that the person I put in charge of overseeing construction was a 33-year-old woman. I made that decision in 1983, when the fight for gender equality in business was really beginning. None of the people who whine about the way I talk to women mention the fact that I voluntarily promoted gender equality in a male-dominated industry. The women who work and have worked for me will vouch for the fact that I was as demanding of them as I was of their male counterparts. That’s the kind of “gender equality” we need: Leadership that inspires the best in people, male or female, not a wishy-washy former secretary of state who doesn’t understand the lunacy of having her own private e-mail server."

PRO-MINORITIES (will have some overlap with pro-women section):

Trump defended Mar-a-Lago's open door policy for people of all races in the 1990s. http://spectator.org/articles/64643/when-trump-fought-racists , http://netrightdaily.com/2016/03/trum ... ach-golf-course-in-1990s/

Trump worked with the Rainbow-PUSH coalition to bring blacks and minorities into corporate America. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=3d2_1451242991#XIfETKQXKv1Qgfwl.99

Trump donated to Raising Malwai, a "volunteer organization which helps orphans in one of the poorest countries in the world by providing water, food, medical care, and schooling."

Trump donated $25,000 to a mostly black women's basketball league after the founder was killed in the 9/11 attack. http://www.slamjamwbc.org/

Trump flew a critically ill Jewish boy in his private jet from California to New York for medical treatment. He was refused entry to an airplane because he was in a wheelchair and in the middle of chemotherapy. Trump skipped some meeting he was going to for a lending of his private jet to fly them to their destination. http://www.thepoliticalinsider.com/ai ... trump-came-to-the-rescue/

Gave $10,000 to a black (I hate that I even need to point that out) bus driver who gained worldwide fame after rescuing a "suicidal" woman from a freeway bridge. http://news.sky.com/story/1162957/don ... ves-hero-bus-driver-10000

"Mr. Trump learned about Clyde Frazier Jr., a young African-American man in New York who ran the Harlem Hoops Basketball tournament in the inner city. Clyde died in the 9/11 attacks on New York, and the tournament had to be shut down. Mr. Trump told his aides to find Clyde's father and when they did, Trump donated the money to keep the tournament operating." - Jerry Falwell Jr.

"Black Female Executive Speaks Out About Working For Trump Family" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxaKUo5naoY

“I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate-mongering groups, campaigns and messaging,” wrote Patton, director of the Eric Trump Foundation and assistant to Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. She said the video was not part of her employment but was triggered by the reaction Trump has received during his campaign.

Trump helped Jennifer Hudson after her family members was killed http://www.ijreview.com/2015/11/46130 ... st-his-celebrity-persona/

Trump dated black supermodel Kara Young in the early 2000's.

Trump's spokesperson is Katrina Pierson, a black woman.

Trump's daughter (Ivanka) and son-in-law (Jared Kushner) are Jewish.

His wife is a (legal) immigrant.

PRO-LGBT

In 2000, he declared that he supported gay anti-discrimination laws and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell. He also advocated for “a very strong domestic-partnership law that guarantees gay people the same legal protections and rights as married people. His book, released that same year, wistfully described his dream of an America “unencumbered by racism, discrimination against women, or discrimination against people based on sexual orientation.” The details of Trump’s gay rights views are even more impressive. Trump didn’t just want states to pass their own anti-discrimination laws: He supported amending the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 to ban sexual orientation discrimination. Like Trump’s other pro-gay positions, this stance was extremely liberal for its time. In fact, it’s strikingly progressive even today. http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/20 ... ro_gay_gop_candidate.html

Donald Trump pulled over his limousine and jumped out to stop a mugging. http://articles.philly.com/1991-11-20 ... rump-marla-maples-big-bat (Not only kind, but awesome, too.)

In 2010, Whirlpool Corporation bought Maytag and promptly shut down their Newton, Iowa facility (and moved it to Mexico). Donald Trump learned about this from a report on 60 Minutes, and proceeded to get in touch with several local businesses to help them in various ways. http://www.crowsnestpolitics.com/2015 ... ning-with-donald-j-trump/

He has also donated over a hundred million dollars of his own money to various charities (https://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/donald-trump), but still finds these opportunities to go out of his way to help individual people and families.

When Trump decided not to fire Miss USA Tara Conner after revelations of drug use, underage drinking and sexual activities, the co-owner of the Miss USA pageant raised some eyebrows.

"I've always been a believer in second chances. Tara is a good person. Tara has tried hard. Tara is going to be given a second chance," Trump said on December 19. Conner was allowed to keep her crown but had to go to rehab.

“I’ve been quiet for too long, and now with the possibility of [Hillary Clinton] being the Democratic nominee and possibly president, I feel the need to get involved,” she said. "Hillary tried to silence me."

Bill Clinton’s former Mistress, Sally Miller, endorses Trump. She speaks of fearing death for coming out with the truth about the Clintons. She wrote of her support of Trump in a Facebook post:
LOVE HIM OR HATE HIM, Trump's political run has forced Americans to see, once again, the corrupt and nasty Democrats for who they really are. Best of all, Trump forced the two-faced Republicans to come out of hiding and show their true colors.

Trump's candidacy has thrown open the outhouse door so we can "See and Smell" the vileness inside Congress.

It took Trump stepping forward and putting a spotlight on Career Politicians to reveal their lazy, shallow, and low-life ways!!!! And, it took Trump's Presidential Bid to expose the phony label "Fair and Balanced" ---so smugly flaunted by FOX NEWS.

Yes, Americans, like him or not, It takes a Donald J. Trump to sound the TRUMPET!!!!!

Trump, Trump, HE's my man....If he can't do it....nobody can!!!!!!

Information about Melania Trump (Thank you, /u/FierceQuacker!! source comment)

She was born in a very small town in Slovenia with a population of only about 5,000 people. She obviously knows the small town feel, even if it wasn't an American small town.

She studied Design and Architecture at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, long before she met Trump.

Her father owned a car/motorcycle parts shop while her mother was a fashion designer/clothes maker.

She is an intelligent, supportive woman who cares deeply for all people, not just specific beneficial (politically) groups.

Some of the charities/foundations she is/has been a part of: Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Police Athletic League (resulted in 2006 Woman of the Year), The American Red Cross (which awarded her the title Good Will Ambassador).

Driven/Ambitious, Caring, Understanding and appreciates America. I feel she even further respects America after having grown up in a communist country.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic ... rite-s-wife-revealed.html

Ivanka Trump on her father:

"I am a female executive at his company of the highest level, and I wouldn't be the person I am today if he didn't deeply believe in opportunity for women. . . Any company who doesn't believe in equality for women -- Any company who isn't hiring women at the highest level and equally for men is not going to be relevant going forward. They're just going to fail. . . That's true of the Trump Organization, and it's true of my own company. We're really thinking about creating a culture that's conducive to women and what they need from a workplace, and it's something I spend a tremendous amount of time thinking about to enable opportunities for women who have families and to not be penalized for that, and to create cultures, which is something I learned at the Trump Organization of meritocracy. I would not be there if I wasn't able to excel." Source

Just because you drop a wall of text you copy and pasted from The_Donald doesn't make it accurate or a good post or indisputable.


Let's start with the fact that many of these quotes and articles aren't even attributed Donald Trump.

Let's then move on to the fact that many of these pieces are from questionable sources.

Also it repeats several items in different categories as if to create an overwhelming argument that, like Trump, falls flat when examined further than a glance.

You should really go somewhere that dissenting opinions are allowed because that sub is literally propaganda.

"I was proven wrong for the 1000th time on this website. I hate that everything you posted you backed up with proof and sources, and since I hate that you did that, i choose to ignore everything and falsely believe what CNN tells me to believe yet again. Better luck next time."

Thats literally you. You can't sourcefully and factually refute anything I posted so you just whine like normal. Otherwise you would have made at least one argument on the contrary. Youre a joke. What sources do you not approve of? BBC? CNN? Yahoo? Youtube videos? Daily caller? Daily mail? Washington post? Politico? Slate? Real clear politics? Washington times? Political insider?

I know why you're upset. Its because Trump has done more for women, minorities, and LGBT individuals than your champion of letting men use womens restrooms could ever dream of doing.
