“We will make America great again!” This is a quote from presidential candidate Donald Trump. The presidential candidates have a very interesting background (some of them might need background checks) and here I will tell you all about the candidates, even though almost 50% of citizens don’t like either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
Republican Donald Trump is the one candidate that no one expected to be in competition for the next president of the United States. Mr. Trump plans to lower the taxes and will be more aggressive to other countries. (As you might have heard, he is supposedly building a wall on Mexico’s border.) He is a very successful businessman. He lives in a 58 story tower located in Manhattan, New York. (Which is the same building as his companies.) His companies are called “The Trump Organization” and “Trump Entertainment Resorts.” He was the host of hit T.V. show “The Celebrity Apprentice”. According to CNN, Donald Trump has been famous for over 40 years (now age 70), starting with directing a broadway play, which only lasted about ten weeks before going out of business. He did not give up. He went on to be one of the most famous and successful people in American history.
Hillary Clinton was born on October 26, 1947 in Park Ridge, Illinois. She plans to raise the taxes and she is a liberal (anti-gun). Hillary went to Yale University. She has been part of a political family, including herself. Her husband Bill Clinton was the president from 1993-2001. Meanwhile, Hillary was the Secretary of State from 2009-2013. Most put her over Donald Trump.
Now, onto the third party candidates. I’ll start with Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson. Gary Earl Johnson was born on January 1st, 1953 in North Dakota. He went to the University of New Mexico and later went on to be the two- term governor of New Mexico. But before that he started a construction company, which later became a multi- million enterprise. He is a conservative and supports nuclear power. Although he is only getting an average of about 6% of the American vote in the polls, he is considered the right choice for some people.
The last, and last-for-a-reason candidate, Jill Stein. Jill Stein was born May 14, 1960, which makes her 66 years old. She is a Green Party candidate and in the past she was a medical doctor. Her opinion is that guns are more likely to cause injury than to defend people and others.” Mrs. Stein also supports abortion and the legalization of drugs. She is put last because she is getting under 5% in the polls, though some people think that she would fit perfect in the top spot.
To conclude this article, the presidential election will be a tight race. If you know me then you already know who I like better (It was extremely hard for me to not voice my opinion). Dean Koontz once said: “Somebody asked me about the current choice we were given in the presidential election. I said, well, it’s like the two of the scariest movies I can imagine.” That explains this election perfectly.
