Republican candidate Donald Trump was once again the laughing stock of last night’s live presidential TV debates in America. Rival candidates John Kasich and Jeb Bush mocked Trump’s plans to deport 11 million illegal immigrants, branding them impractical and divisive.

The billionaire businessman was met by a booing crowd as he set his stance on foreign policy, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and China’s “currency manipulation.” However what Mr Trump did not realise is that China is not actually a part of the TPP, which led to further humiliation.

Trump also set out his hard-line stance on immigration by saying he would build a wall on the US-Mexico border, referencing Israel as a good example with what he believes they have achieved with their border wall with Palestine.

However this was met with scorn from John Kasich, who said it was a “silly argument” and not “an adult one.” Jeb Bush also criticized Trump’s plans, saying it would only be playing into Hilary Clinton’s hands.

Trump had previously been ahead in opinion polls, although last night’s debate may see these results change.
