As we are slowly approaching the month of October, we are coming down to the homestretch of knowing who will take over our country as the 45th president. The 2016 election involving Republican candidate Donald Trump, and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has been causing numerous reactions throughout the country on who to crown the next leader of the United States. It seems that as each day passes, there is new information of thoughts hovering over each individual. It’s going to be very interesting to see what each of these candidates last words are before the election takes its toll on Tuesday, November 8th.
Donald Trump is an international businessman born on June 14th, 1946 in Queens, New York. He has brought in some strong supporters while also losing some of those along the way. While growing up, Trump was an outgoing, energetic kid and at the age of 13 his parents sent him to the New York military academy. After excelling greatly there, Trump enrolled at Fordham University before transferring to Wharton School of Finance where he graduated in the year of 1968 while majoring in economics. Later in his life, he starred in the television show “The Apprentice” and gained popularity through that before deciding to take a stand in politics in 2015. He has brought in some strong supporters while also losing some of those along the way. His careless quotes, and no filter comments could result in a downfall of votes but only time will tell to see what overpowers the other.
Donald Trump’s arch nemesis, Hillary Clinton is an American politician born on October 26th, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois. During her childhood, Clinton enjoyed playing sports before later enrolling at Wellesley College where she majored in political science. She eventually married former president Bill Clinton and served as the 67th United States Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013 and a junior United States Senator representing New York from 2001 to 2009, as well as representing the First Lady of the United States during the presidency of Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001. She like Trump as well as any other politician is trying to prove to us that she is the best candidate in this year’s election.
Over the past several months of this each of the candidate’s campaign, it is clear that the most popular idea of the two is the concept of Trump being racist, and the fact of Clinton’s deleted emails scandal. Each of the candidates in my opinion have crucial and beneficial views to support their campaigns. Just like any other election, the two most popular news outlets regarding political issues being CNN and FoxNews are doing their job with promoting each of the two candidates in a way to gain and or maintain their current supporters. I enjoy taking a look at each of the websites to see what each site tries to persuade their viewers.
