Trump’s sex scandal again

Donald Trump, the nominee of the US president from Republican Party, made a trouble again.

Very recently, a tape in which Trump talked to a woman was published. He suggested several sexual things, including that he was so famous and rich that he could easily make a sexual relationship with women. The remarks and attitude he made looked crude and discriminative.

He finally had to make an apology regarding this comment. However, he also mentioned that Bill Clinton had said more terrible things to him.

Following this scandal, some politicians in Republican Party change the attitude to Trump. Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, as well as Gerry Herbert, the governor of Utah, declared the withdrawal from the support for Trump.

Actually, it has been obvious that Trump has quite an impolite character. It is very likely that similar evidence will appear again and again. Even if he won the seat of the President, the risk would remain.

If you believe Trump has a good chance to make change the US, it is ridiculous to criticize him for such rude behavior. On the other hand, I think that it is a good opportunity for some Republicans who have been hesitating to make the decision to leave from Trump side.

However, many Republicans seem still hesitate to leave from Trump. It is possible that the Republican Party, at least partially, will become against Trump. But it means to guarantee the victory of Hillary Clinton. It is uncertain which is better for the Republican Party, going along with Trump with a great risk of being politically incorrect, or abandoning Trump with a great risk of corruption of the party.

On the other hand, we should be aware that Clinton is also infamous in some aspects. I support Clinton, and she will certainly win the race. But it does not mean the better US, unfortunately. Today’s world is so complicated.
