This election year has, by far, been one for the books and we still have about two months left.
As for the Republican candidate, Donald J. Trump, we have seen things we never thought possible.
From his unexpected outbursts to controversial comments during his rallies, no one ever knows what to expect from the unconventional candidate.
Coming from no political background at all, Trump is a very unique presidential candidate. I believe it is for this reason that he has been so successful throughout this campaigning process.
Americans are fed up with the current political system and how things are handled, or more commonly how things are not handled.
Trump stands strong on his policies of stopping illegal immigration and building the infamous wall.
He is known for his other very conservative policies such as his stance against abortion, his pro-gun views and his desire to lower taxes across the board. He also wants to expand the military and improve medical care for our country’s veterans.
Trump can really bring some amazing things to the table. Once a voter is able to look past his unfiltered language, what he stands for could honestly be the chance for America to be great again.
The issue with American politics today is the fact that people take everything personally rather than looking at the larger picture.
Instead of seeing Trump’s true policies, his opponents focus on the fact that he has made offensive comments in the past.
Though I think he should be more professional, Trump has come out and apologized for his unacceptable behavior in the beginning of this campaign process.
As November slowly approaches, I think it is important to start truly looking at policies, rather than the individual.
Who has spoken to the public and who refuses to hold press conferences? Who was under federal investigation and who simply says things that offend people?
They say this election is the decision between “lesser of two evils,” but if you were to ask me, it is clear which evil has caused more damage to the American people.
