    As a member of one of the minority groups that Trump openly vilified I'll tell you right now that any 7 year old who had heard him say those things would be having their own reaction to it and would not need to take a cue from a parent.

    Trump openly called innocent Muslims terrorists and he openly called Hispanics thugs and criminals. I've got young neices and nephews and I'll tell you we're all sick of being labelled as terrorists and any of them would think the same about Trump of their own volition.

    Children are just people with feelings too, you insult and slander their minority group you're also insulting them, they're smart enough to know that.

    Which proves my point that young children shouldn't be exposed to politics so young. By now everyone knows what to expect from Trump so even more reason to send the children out of the room.
    That's not condoning his behaviour, that's just protecting your child the same as you would if a violent film came on or whatever.

    A child who has a reaction on hearing he was elected, has sat through more than one tv appearance.

    I just don't get it.
    Why sit a child down and tell them how to hate this human.
    And what good is going to come from it, especially now he has been elected.

    Where's Hillary?
    Shouldn't she address this? These were her voters after all.

    How on Earth can you hide it from kids? It's the American Presidential Election, it's everywhere, media saturation! Especially if you're within the United States. You're not going to send your kids out of the room at dinner time when you have the news on in the background to catch the highlights. Anyway the rhetoric is going to trickle down amongst his supporters until kids are flinging insults around in the playground and saying 'you're a terrorist the President said so'.

    More importantly my beef with people like Trump and Pauline Hanson and the like is that they demonstrate no honor in the political system. It's the government! Not a violent movie, it shouldn't be something we have to protect the kids from. We're not living in some war torn region. Sure have your opinions but express them decently, don't bully and don't incite unjustified hatred.

    There's a real problem if you have to 'protect' your kids from the hateful garbage coming out of the mouth of the President of the country.
