Donald Trump has his shares of wins and losses in the Filipino-American community the last few months. He had a number of supporters turn their backs on him after his infamous comment on the Philippines being a terrorist country.
With Filipinos composing 5% of the American population, our support is nothing to sneeze at. A number of my friends in the community has once again decided to support Trump after last night’s debate. They expressed how much of a gentleman he was by not attacking Hillary as much as he could have. Could it be that he felt sorry because she is currently sick?
So like any responsible journalist, we took to twitter to find out what the rest of the Filipinos think of Trump now, a mere month away from the US Presidential elections.

I’m not scared of monsters or clowns or ghosts. Halloween does not scare me. Trump becoming President does.
