How Did This Happen?

The results are in and…..it’s Donald Trump?

I was shocked to see that Trump had edged out Clinton for the presidency. Hadn’t he started his presidential bid as a joke?

America, we should have had a good laugh and let it all go. Apparently, we don’t know how to take a joke.

I’m sad to see that someone who claims he’s going to build a wall to keep the Mexicans out.

How did we vote in someone who has zero experience with politics into the White House? He’s a businessman, which is a totally different ball game than running a country. A businessman that wouldn’t turn over his financial records, might I add.

His running mate Mike Pence has proposals that will hurt the human rights of the LGBTQA+ community.

Hillary isn’t innocent either. We have the email scandal, when she was a lawyer she let a rapist go free, she left four American soldiers to die.

However, Hillary does have political experience as a senator. She understands foreign policy and why a wall isn’t an option.

Her husband is a former U.S. President. She’s seen how it all works first-hand.

She doesn’t degrade women and agrees that the government shouldn’t have a say in what women do with their bodies.

I’m sort of with her, but strongly believe that Trump will not “make America great again.”
