    Muslims and Latinos are not the only ethnic groups that Donald Trump is offending with his bigoted comments about immigration and related issues. POLITICO reports that only 19 percent of Asian-Americans hold a favorable view of Trump.

    See, POLITICO (May 23):

    Trump Polls miserably among Asian-Americans

    POLITICO writes:

    "Trump would appear to be an equal opportunity offender - he has angered Latinos by accusing Mexico of sending 'rapists' across the border and outraged Muslims by calling for a compete ban on their entry into the United States. But he has also repeatedly imitated Asian accents at his rallies, portraying Chinese negotiators as saying 'We want deal' in one instance and doing an impression of an Indian call center worker in another."

    A vote for Donald Trump may mean many things to many people - successful businessman, deal-maker, promises which may or may not be fulfilled for more border security and American jobs, "plain speaking", or whatever other images of Trump his supporters may have in mind. But one thing is clear, and cannot easily be explained away:

    A vote for Trump is a vote for hate against racial and religious minorities in America.

    On May 26, Huffington Post is running a headline on its website:

    American Horror Story: Trump Clinches Nomination.

    That says it all. No further comment is necessary for anyone who cares about the survival of America's immigration system as we know it; and beyond that, our democracy.

    Trump is not going to destroy the immigration system. He ran on his own financing supposedly to avoid obligating himself to special interest groups, but he is several special interests groups himself. Remember, he donated a lot of money to politicians before he became one, including $100,000 tp Hillary. He is in the restaurant and luxury hotel business on a grand scale. He is not going to do anything to shut off the supply of immigrants, legal or or not. And if he is as smart as I think he is, he will cut a deal with the Hispanics to go along with a legalization program before the general election starts. Such a deal can be made without alienating his supporters. I have been suggesting it for years, a wipe-the-slate-clean IRCA deal. It brought the parties together for the last legalization program and can do it again.

    None of us can see into the future, so no one can say definitely that Nolan's predictions about Trump are wrong. In life, and in politics, anything could happen.

    The FBI might also issue a report next week apologizing for allegedly wasting the taxpayer's money by a mistaken and pointless investigation into Hillary's emails.

    I think that that is about as likely to happen as Nolan's prediction that Trump will emerge as the agent of legalization, instead of the Wall, mass deportation, Muslim entry ban and elimination of legal H-1B work visas and Labor Certification green cards, all of which Trump has in reality proposed and never retracted.

    There is more than a dose of wishful thinking in Nolan's forecast, which is based on the assumption that Trump doesn't mean anything he actually says about immigration, and that he will have no hesitation in selling out and betraying the anti-immigrant, anti-Latino and anti-Muslim Republican base voters who have made his nomination possible.

    On the twin issue of whether Trump is really committed to preserving democratic rule, it is more than a little disturbing that Trump has now put someone like Paul Manafort, whose specialty is trying to make foreign dictators look good, in charge of his campaign.

    If Hillary were to hire someone like this to run her campaign, her opponents would be saying that she was a fascist who wants to set up a one-person dictatorship in America, just as many observers on both sides of the political spectrum are now warning about Donald Trump, with a good deal more justification.
