Welcome to the /r/The_Donald Wiki, where we try to outline why one would want to vote for Trump and his direct positions laid out in his book Time To Get Tough: Making America #1 Again and on the internet. This wiki will also contain sources and data that supports Trump's positions.
This is a broad question. There are many reasons one would want to vote for a candidate. Some people might be single issue voters which is defined as a vote being dependent on a certain position for a particular policy. Some might be single issue for Trump for his stance on illegal immigration. Note: Being anti-illegal immigration is not equal to being xenophobic or anti immigration, it is simply a choice to enforce our own laws for citizenship, but we will dive more into illegal immigration under Trump's policies.
Many people, those who ponder why someone would want to vote for Trump, consider him a racist, sexist, and a xenophobe who ran as a joke. If you happen to think this, first compartmentalize that right now and proceed with an open mind. It is very important for you to do so or else this won't be beneficial for either parties involved.
Now that we have discussed a few reasons why someone would vote for Trump, let's go deeper and examine his policy positions. To begin, we'll be looking at his 2011 book, Time To Get Tough: Making America #1 Again; essential reading for any Trump supporter. This will not only show Trump's consistency on various positions over the past 4.5 years, but it will also provide even more evidence as to why Trump has the best platform out of all the candidates. The following sections will be organized by chapter with the exception of illegal immigration which will be first. Sources used by Trump will be linked in each section.
Note: As this book is almost five years old, there is likely to be minor changes to specifics within each policy. For example, the tax brackets in his income tax plan are slightly different. This is likely to be the case for other policies in the book, but like his tax plan, it still gives an excellent idea of what one can expect in that particular policy in a Trump policy.
Also, see our subsection on Why Donald? for some specific examples and reasons for voting Trump.
Low Energy - A "kill shot" aimed at Jeb Bush (a.k.a "guac bowl merchant"). Jeb was simply low energy and the nickname Trump made up stuck. High energy is the opposite of low energy. You want to be high energy.
Coats - A Bernie supporter crashed a Trump rally in the winter and Trump made a joke, "take his coat and we'll mail it back," like he was going to throw the protester out in the cold. If you're new to the subreddit and become a Trump supporter, you're welcome to have a coat. If you're a Bernie Cuck or Hillshill however, we will be confiscating your coat.
Cuck - Shorthand for "cuckold". A cuck gets off on his wife getting fucked by another man. A cuck in the political sense which we use here is someone who sits idly or encourages policies which fuck their country, national identity, and cultural heritage. A cuckservative gets off on watching liberals fuck America.
Schlonged - A term that means "beat badly". Trump used that term to describe Hillary's defeat by Obama. Hillary tried to say it was sexist, of course she was wrong.
Yuge - A play on how Trump says "huge".
Bigly - A play on how Trump says "big league".
'pede - See "Centipede" above.
Nimble Navigator - Same as centipede from Can't Stump The Trump Guy. Watch the beginning of any of the later Can't Stump The Trump videos and you'll see centipede and nimble navigator in the opening song.
CTR - Correct The Record, Hillary Clinton's Stormtroopers on the social media front, created by Mrs. Doubtfire David Brock. We defeated them in the first great MEME war, but now they have been revived under a new name "ShareBlue", it serves only one purpose is to keep other people from being redpilled by r/The_Donald.
ShareBlue or ShariaBlue - David Brock (same guy who runs Correct the Record) developed a new organization to carry on CTR's work in a broader variety of forums with new tactics. They, along with CTR, still stalk The_Donald to this day, albeit with lower activity than they had during and just after the election. Third-party evidence points to up to 30% of all reddit's traffic potentially being from astroturfed sources.
Bill Clinton is a rapist - infowars.com - During the campaign, Alex Jones of infowars.com offered a cash reward to anyone who could would hold a sign calling attention to the fact that Bill Clinton has been involved in numerous sexual misconduct allegations over a period of many decades. This lead to several people wearing shirts that read "BILL CLINTON IS A RAPIST" -- often with the infowars logo -- being filmed at various events that left-wing politicians were patronizing.
Autist - a skilled information gather/compiler who is able to sort through massive amounts of data to get to the truth.
Brigading - when a rash of shills invade this DOMreddit.
Bye Felicia - From the Comedy Film "Friday", meaning a dismissive farewell to someone who had unsuccessfully tried to pull something over on you.
GEOTUS - God Emperor of The United States - Used to describe only President Trump.
Kek - from 4chan /pol/, the God of shitposters, the supreme Diety (origin- ancient Egypt) - also used as a synonym for "lol".
Kekistan - the fictional country of shitposters. (See also: Kek) Flag of Green with black and white lines and circles.
Meme Magic - when a meme "transcends the realm of cyberspace and results in real life consequences".
Pearl Clutching - a reference to 1960's movie theme of women clutching their pearl necklaces when fearful or agitated. An "Oh dear, oh dear, The Sky is Falling" attitude or comment.
Pepe - the Green Frog who is the prophet of Kek.
Shill - any number of paid and/or unpaid individuals who infiltrate The_Donald DOMreddit in order to undermine our support of President Trump.
The Trump Curse - When an individual disparages President Trump his family or his policies and subsequently has it blow up in their face or some other bad luck befalls them.
No Spamming - See Reddit's Content Policy for an explanation of what is considered spam.
No Trolling / Concern Trolling - Trolling is defined as, "sowing discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community." Concern trolling is a variation of trolling wherein the troll attempts to present themselves as though they are a part of the community who is simply concerned.
No Racism or Anti-Semitism - Posts containing attacks based on race or anti-semitism are not allow. Bear in mind that Muslim and illegal immigrant are not races.
No Releasing of Personal Information - Per the Reddiquette guidelines, do not post someone's personal information, or post links to personal information. This includes links to public Facebook pages and screenshots of Facebook pages with the names still legible. Additionally, on pages such as Facebook, where personal information is often displayed, please mask the personal information and personal photographs using a blur function, erase function, or simply block it out with color.
No Vote Manipulation/Brigading - Brigading is defined as, "a deliberate attempt by one party to collectively manipulate the content of another." This is not limited to Reddit. Reddit considers this behavior harassment, and have removed many subs in the past for the doing so. Admins are very strict with Vote Manipulation eg. simply upvoting or downvoting a single post on two or more accounts. Typically you get permanently banned right away - so don't do it.
Trump Supporters ONLY - This sub is for supporters of Donald J. Trump ONLY. This is not a place for you to debate with us about Donald Trump, or to ask us to convince you to like Donald Trump. This is not a neutral place - we are 100% in support of Donald J. Trump. Moderators reserve the right to ban non-supporters as we see fit.
No Posts Related to Being Banned From Other Subreddits - Self explanatory.
Ban appeals, suggestions, concerns (including sticky choices) go to modmail - ANY Meta-content must go to modmail. This includes "mods please sticky," or "we should do X," or anything of the sort. Ban appeals must go to modmail, or they will be ignored. Do not send ban appeals via PM to any mod.
Don't Post People Planning to Assassinate Trump - If you witness this behavior online, feel free to report it to the FBI.
Please do not behave in a way outside of the subreddit that would reflect poorly on it. - This includes private messages or posts on Reddit, or any other website/location. The moderators of the_donald reserve the right to ban anyone we feel is engaging in harassing behavior either on the_donald or elsewhere. This rule also includes "brigading," or "manipulating," the votes on any other subreddit.
