The race for the President of the United States is reaching a fever pitch now that the two nominees for the Republican Party and the Democrat Party have been decided. This year the election boils down to Donald Trump for the Republicans vs Hilary Clinton of the Democrats. But what are the main differences?
Let’s take a look.
Hilary Is a Career Politician While Trump Isn’t
Hilary has a political history while Donald Trump is just a businessman.
Hilary has been a member of congress and served as President Obama’s Secretary of State. She’s had plenty of dealings with foreign leaders and some see this as a positive thing. Donald Trump on the other hand doesn’t have a lot of political history.
He’s dealt with foreign businessmen and has undoubtedly dealt with leaders in his time as a businessman but not on a political level. Some people also see this as a positive because they’re tired of career politicians like Hilary.
Hilary is More Globalist While Trump is More Nationalist
When Donald Trump says he’s going to “Make America Great Again” he means that he’s going to try and make America as independent as possible.
Hilary has no problems letting in immigrants and opening up the American borders while Trump basically wants to close America off and cut off foreign dependency.
Which side of this issue you stand on is more of a personal preference.
Some people like the globalist approach and feel we should be more welcoming to our foreign brothers and sisters while others feel that America should be, well, American.
Trump Is Paying His Own Way
One of the things that people really love about Donald Trump is that he’s financing most of his campaign out of his own pocket. While he has accepted donations a large amount of his campaign funds are coming from his own personal wealth.
Hilary on the other hand has taken millions of dollars from corporations and Wall Street. Some people feel that there is too much money in politics and that Hilary must owe these people some favors while others feel it’s just a part of the political process.
It’s hard to know what it will all mean until after the election.
Hilary Supports Gun Control
One thing that has become a major issue recently is the issue of gun control.
Hilary and the other Democrats want to bring in gun control more than ever following all the shootings that have wracked the States lately.
Donald Trump believes firmly in the constitution, including the Second Amendment which covers the right to “bear arms”. He opposes gun control while Hilary supports it.
These are some of the key differences between the Republican Donald Trump and the Democrat Hilary Clinton.
It’s always important to look into things a little for yourself and see more of the differences but these are four key differences that will likely sway your vote one way or another.
One thing for sure about this election is that everyone who can vote needs to get out there and do it!
With two such vastly different candidates America is likely to change a lot with either candidate so you need to get your voice heard and get in that booth!
