Dean Obeidallah: Trump's avowals of un-American values show what's at stake in vote
Election will be a fight for the soul of America if Trump is GOP nominee, Obeidallah says
His intolerance of dissent, bigoted remarks sound dictatorial, not presidential, he says
There’s a good chance that Donald Trump will be the GOP’s presidential nominee, if dominance on Super Tuesday is any indication of what’s to come, and that means this November’s election will not just be a battle for the White House.
It will be a fight for the soul of America.
I’m far from alone in this view. We have even seen Republicans such as Sen. Ben Sasse from Nebraska and a number of other conservatives denouncing Trump and pledging that they will not vote for him if he’s the GOP nominee.
