Trump Speaking His Mind

Donald Trump recently said, while talking about Syrian refugees, "If I win, they're going back". This is just a terrible thing to say as a human being. These are people that are escaping a war. Sending them back to their country is a very possible death. As a Presidential Candidate, it is very alarming to hear this come out of Trump's mouth. To hear that a person who cares so little for human life could be our president is very alarming. This isn't the first time something like this has happened either. After
World War II,  hundreds of thousands of Jews tried to move to 
the then British Mandate of Palestine. A big majority of them were forced by Britain to go back to the country they came from and were usually killed when they arrived. It is not so different with the Syrian refugees. They are not facing persecution because of their religion, but they are still facing a very possible death if they go back to Syria. In today's world, people should have learned from history, and not repeat the mistakes. On the bright side, by saying this, Trump's results in polling are likely to go down, meaning he will drop out according to one of his latest statement, "if I was dropping in the polls, where I saw that I wasn't gonna win, why would I continue?"
