The decision of who we choose as out next president will forever impact the country and how other countries see us, but the way to go about this is simple. We need a leader who will make us strong, safe, and frightening to the enemy. The candidate that will benefit us the most in this horrifying election is Donald Trump.
The United States of America, the birthplace of the American dream, and the home of the brave, is divided in a way that is more intense and tension-filled than we have seen in a while. So much of what used to make us strong has been absolutely thrown out of the window because of foreign issues and attacks from within. Trump may be an eyesore, but if we were to look past the blinding orange glow we would see his beliefs, and his plans for this malfunctioning country.
According to the Huffington Post, “The number of terrorist attacks each year has more than quadrupled in the decade since September 11, 2001.” The American people are frightened and nervous of what this once magnificent country will become.
We cannot afford to have someone like Hillary Rodham Clinton in office, for our country would become so corrupt, and so broken-down that we would sail into economic oblivion. In fact, Forbes said “weak economic growth” and “continued governmental gridlock” in Washington D.C. will be fast-arriving if Clinton takes the office, meaning that just like the Obama administration, we will only have new enforcements under executive orders.
Donald Trump sure wouldn’t solve our problems, but he would set us on the right path. For starters, he would build up our defenses. Trump said, “We need to build a wall, and it has to be built quickly,” because, “killings, murders, crimes and drugs are pouring across the border, he means it. Our people would once again start to feel safe in public spaces such as theaters, streets, and schools, because our police force would be active and able to counter acts of violence and terror.
Donald Trump is a true builder, and would use his expertise to direct cash flow not towards government welfare or free college, but towards our roads, transportation, and economic well-being. The wages wouldn’t have to be higher, because merchandise and trade would be priced lower. Jobs would be created everywhere from truck drivers to school teachers, and the middle class would thrive while the lower class is brought up.
Trump’s campaign was nearly all self-funded, unlike Clinton’s, whose campaign funding consisted of outside donors. In an interview, Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, even said she, “took money from kings of Saudi Arabia and Morocco.”
The proof is in the history of the candidates, and Trump built himself up in business, breaking ground on new buildings throughout his years. Newsmax said that, “Trump also suggested on Fox & Friends Sunday morning that he may ‘sell a building’ to continue self-financing his own campaign.”
Not only does his devotion towards the campaign and American people show here, but really provides any voters who are on the fence some evidence that economic skills will be put to use under a Trump administration.
America is a free country; you are permitted to do as you please under the law. As one united country, we can keep it that way, so that we can continue doing the things we love. That is why undoubtedly, the candidate with better economics, better history, and overall favorable plan for this country is Donald J. Trump.
