Many question the outcome of who will win the presidential election. Some say it is a close call between the one who wants to build a huge wall at the border between the United States and Mexico, Trump the genius, and the first woman who does not know what she is doing, Clinton. All of these assumptions are just opinions coming from those who want to joke about this year’s nominees either in social media or creating embarrassing sculptures of them that end up on the news. Although, people do not get down to the cold, hard facts that makes these two nominees different.
Clinton is a woman who has devoted her life to politics and has dreamed about being the first woman President in history. Sadly, there are voters who are going to pick Trump based on gender. Reality it like this. People rather see a crazy white man being our new president than an intelligent woman taking a ‘man’s job’. What these voters need to see is the good changes she can bring to the table. Democrat candidate Clinton, wants to expand on Obama’s unilateral action plan letting undocumented immigrants become residents, and eventually citizens as said in BBC News. This can help so many fearful people, live at ease knowing they will not get deported, and lose their families and friends. Clinton plans to help those who cannot afford the help or who are just not being heard, such as improving health care coverage for low income families and lowering student debt. Fact is, many cannot get the proper education they need in order to succeed in the proper profession because they simply cannot afford it. She also plans on emphasizing women’s rights and human rights because women have just as much- power, education, intelligence, and much more- of what it takes as a man does. Especially becoming the first woman president, step up for women everywhere and such an inspirational leader that would be. Even getting this far as being the first woman in the nation’s 240-year history to be chosen by a major political party as its candidate for president, is a major historical moment, GIRL POWER! Although, everyone does have their flaws. One of hers includes supporting fracking, way to extract gas from rock, which is said to be bad for the environment. She also wants to cut off any funding for Planned Parenthood’s women’s health service because they provide abortion services. Everyone is entitled to their own decisions, but there are limits to their decisions. Clinton has also been mocked for not handling business carefully. Clinton was said to be ‘extremely careless’, to be using her personal email account to handle official government business while being secretary of state. But, everyone makes mistakes and no one is perfect.
Then we have the unforgettable Republican candidate Trump. We are not supposed to be biased, but we can all agree that even the slightest thing coming out of his mouth is a joke. One major issue that started commotion was with his remarks toward building a ‘huge wall that will be at the border and that the Mexicans are going to build’. This idea is….not even worth finishing this sentence. Also mentioned in BBC News, he also believes abortions should be illegal and the women who do get the abortions should be given some form of punishment. Everyone is entitled to their own bodies and what they want to do with it, but as said before, there are limits to their decisions. Trump also plans on deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants, which I am guessing are going to be a part of the group that are going to build the ‘huge wall’. Hate to argue, but he does have some good insight such as when he took part as the first Republican nominee to mention lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual Americans to be accepted in our society. Another way he plans to make our society better includes more job opportunities, creating 25 million jobs over the next 10 years. He also plans on lowering taxes and removing regulations as a way to increase job opportunities. Both candidates have their pros and cons, but it is up to voters to decide which is worthy as the role of our next President of the United States.
