Jasminedesi16 I'm sorry but even if Trump was a vegan I would not vote for him.

I tend to agree with this, some pescetarians, or religious people, will only eat invertebrates like mussels or oysters for a similar reason. And out of all the ecological solutions to end factory farming or feed people who won't or can't be vegan (it is literally impossible in some regions or socio-economic levels to be 100 percent vegan even if they're mostly vegan already due to poverty)...I support the idea of locust farms. I'm more practical than a purist, though. My goal is the largest number of people doing the least harm rather than a perfect ideal that might never be reached.

Personally, I see no difference in enjoying flesh from McDonalds or flesh from a 5 star restaurant, it's still flesh. Trump (in that regard) is no better or worse than the other candidates just because he likes cheap food.
Um, because he clearly supports factory farming and his children have illegally killed endangered wildlife, and his daughter is being confronted by PETA as we speak. A five star restaurant might at least avoid factory farms. McDonald's is also a corporate and sustainability issue, none of the other candidates are actively plugging fast food.

I'm not voting for Hillary.

Actually Bill Clinton is no longer vegan. he follows more of a paleo diet including fish and other "lean meat" but no dairy. Apparently his doctor told him he wasn't getting enough quality protein on a vegan diet and was getting too much starch. Rolls eyes. His daughter Chelsea who was once vegan is also no longer vegan or even vegetarian.

veggie man The headline is "Donald Trump really likes fast food". No one needed to say this. Just take one look at the man!

Thalassa4 Also it bears mention that his daughter sells rabbit fur (sourced from China) hats, and his son has illegally killed wildlife on safari in Africa.

Vegetarians in the US Should Stand Against Trump

He just gave a shameless plug to corporate fast food, especially mainstream meat items, so clearly sees zero problem with factory farms. While any individual has a right to choose what they eat, we as Americans do not need a leader who is actively endorsing the slaughter of animals (among other things which make me genuinely boggled why anyone in their right mind would vote for Trump).
