Trump supporters should think again

The views of United States presidential candidate Donald Trump are truly outrageous.

He has blamed his country's problems on its most disadvantaged people and has also called for a ban on Muslims entering the US.

He wants to allow guns in schools, and is not afraid to go to war.

The people who support Mr Trump should certainly think again.

What makes America a great country is the fact that it has been a melting pot for so many immigrants from different countries.

These people, together with their talents, expertise and ideas, create a diverse society.

I hope Mr Trump's supporters realise that he is not going to make America better.

His proposed policies would cause a lot of division in society and the world at large.
