Well, that sounds a bit unfair, no?

Donald Trump and his supporters are accustomed to being derided as racists, but one Harvard University professor has taken things a step further, calling Trump a “predator” in the mold of a Spanish conquistador.

“I see Donald Trump as an example of a predator in the way he posed next to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, as if he was studying his prey, and in the way he tried to dominate the stage,” asserted prof. Davíd Carrasco, who teaches at the Harvard Divinity School, Harvard Extension School, and in the Department of Anthropology, in an interview with The Harvard Crimson last week.

“As a historian of religions, familiar with predator and prey relationships” he claimed special insights into how the United States has historically been preying on Mexico, declaring that Trump’s campaign rhetoric “is designed to scapegoat the Mexican people for insecurities internal to the U.S.”
