Dale Predicts Debates Will Show Up "Bigot" Trump
Iain Dale predicts the US Presidential debate will show up Donald Trump "for the bigoted man that he is".
Iain Dale says nobody with "half a brain" would vote for Donald Trump and predicts the debates will expose him for the "bigot" he is.
"I made a slightly flippant comment earlier: anyone with half a brain would not vote for Donald Trump.
"A lot of people are probably going to accuse me of being arrogant and condescending with that remark.
"But for somebody who's on the right of British politics, I could not consider voting for Donald Trump. I could not consider voting for a man who seems to firmly believe that President Obama was the founder of ISIS.
"I could not vote for a man who made the disparaging remarks about disabled people that he made.
"I could not vote for a man who doesn't seem to have a firm policy on anything, apart from trying to divide his own country. That's not really a very good start is it?!"
Iain then made a bold prediction: the upcoming US Presidential debates are where Trump will be really found out by Hillary.
"That's why I'm really looking forward to the debates, they're going to be very very revealing.
"They're going to show up Donald Trump for the bigoted man that he is."
