2016 election analysis

Trump and Hillary Clinton

 It is a historic campaign for the United States, and the world is watching who will carry the day.  The campaign is on a high note with the primary candidates Trump and Hillary Clinton trying to convince people why they are the best.  Hillary Clinton is running for president under the Democratic Liberty ticket, while   Donald Trump is under the Green Party. The reason this is a historic election is the fact that the United States has never had a qualified woman candidate before.  It is hard to tell who the best between the two candidates is but from the past debates; it has become evident to me that Hillary Clinton is the best. She is by far a composed individual who is ready to take the United States to a new level.   If I can rate her from the debate results, there is no doubt that she remains the best candidate and this is the reason I contend, Hillary Clinton is the best candidate to be the United States compared to Donald Trump.  I know we all have the right to choose the candidate we believe he is the best; I have my reasons to consider Hillary Clinton, an outstanding candidate. 

   First, Hillary is the best candidate is because of her stand in immigrants in the United States.  It is clear that immigrants occupy a significant population in the United States especially since the onset of the Syrian war.  The number of people migrating from Syria to the United States has increased over the years. These are the needy individuals who have escaped death by an inch, and the only thing they need is a place to call home. Hillary Clinton is determined to protect these people and give permanent citizenship, but she will only deport the illegal immigrants and those immigrants with criminal cases “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigration and deportation should only be individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety.” However, Trump, on the other hand, considers such persons as rapists and drug dealers where he claims that when he is declared as the president. The first thing he will do is to ensure that these people are deported from the United States “They're bringing drugs,' crime and are 'rapists'” (CNN News,2016)

Presidential election facts 2016

   Evidently,  Barrack Obama has tried to be the best president for the United States for the past eight years, but unfortunately, there are so many things that he has neglected.   There is the increasing rate of unemployment, the high rate of crimes and the unpredictable position of the United States on the international platform.  These are the issues that require a President who has political experience so that he/she handle the issues as needed.  The fact that Hillary had devoted her eight years to the political career gives her an advantage over Trump who in this case can be called a novice politician.  Regarding background, Hillary Clinton is a well-groomed individual and can take the POTUS role responsibly.  Her resume is among the stacked resumes and, while at Wellesley College she was elected as the senior class president with honor in Law.  She has also been part of the Barry Goldwater campaigns in 1964 and McGovern in 1972 as we; as Jimmy Carter in 1976. This is only the necessary information about Clinton, while Trump has never been in charge of any political office and the fact that he has managed to build a business empire does not make him the best candidate.  Running a business is a different thing from running a super power. Hillary, on the other hand, has handled several political offices, and with this experience, I believe she will manage to address these issues during her term compared to Trump. 

 There is little we know about Trump, but through his speech, we can be able to tell the person he is. Personally, Trump is a careless person who doesn’t give a second thought in whatever he says, he has been clear in his speech on some critical issues such as banning and deporting the immigrants, construction of a wall around the United States and banning the Muslims into the United States.  Trump is an individual who imagines there is no need advisor or any policies to guide him. Trump also has no idea on important issues like mitigating unemployment where he talks about empowering the middle class, the issue of abortion, minimum wages, debt, and the healthcare issues. It is clear that if elected he is an individual who will lead the United States to total darkness and this is the reason he is a bad bet. 

2016 election review

 When it comes to the environment, Hillary Clinton does not deny the fact that the changes in climate taking place is a serious issue. She is committed to the environment, and her value to the environment can be connected back to several decades. Also as a President, Hillary is determined to impose the protection of the environment as the primary activity.  In the first place, she promises to repeal the Big Oil Subsidies and make sure the organizations drilling in the Arctic are stopped. In this case, Hillary is planning to invest in safe energy that is relevant to the next generation.  She also aims at creating renewable energy when she promises to install over half a billion solar panels in the United States, which is the best move to safeguarding the environment. We all know that environment is life and the fact that we will have the president who values the good being of the environment is the best thing that happens to the United States. 

 Hillary Clinton has also fought for the well being of the health sector in the United States since the 90s.  This was the time she fought against the aim of the insurance companies who aimed at derailing the health care reforms.  This is the point that Clinton won the war and managed to sign in the Insurance health care for children that has ensured more than eight million kids. She is also in full support for the Obama care Act, which objects at creating a healthcare to across 20 million citizens. This is where Hillary proves to the United States that her interest to the nation is confident and that she is ready to make any change.

 I also believe as a superpower nation; we need a president who is competent and a composed president who can handle issues competitively.  However, from the previous presidential campaign, has proved that Hillary is more competitive and relaxed than Trump.  When giving answers, she appears composed and answers Trump in a professional way, unlike Trump who only concentrates on being defensive.  The worst part is that he does not accept defeat to the extent that he claims that the microphone was not working.  However, after giving him the last change in the final presidential debate, Trump still lost it, and he still presented himself as a loser. 

 In conclusion, the United States needs a strong President who has political experience and who is ready to take the country to the next level. The President should also be aware of how she should deal with critical issues surrounding the citizens, and this are the reason I believe that Hillary Clinton is the best choice for the United States as a nation.
