This year’s presidential election has been very controversial. GOP offices have been burned, automobiles have been totaled, and feelings have definitely been hurt. Your choices are Donald Trump, who has been accused of being racist, sexist, brutal, and unfair, or Hillary Clinton, accused of deleting 33,000 classified emails, leaving four United States officials to die in Benghazi, and supports the idea to ban violent video games because they are “stealing the innocence of our children.”

Mr. Trump has definitely said some mean, unfair, and maybe racist things, but the American people need to pick their poison. Regarding abortion, Mrs. Clinton has said “ I do not think the United States government should be stepping in and making those most personal of decisions. — Roe v. Wade very clearly sets out that there can be regulations on abortion so long as the life and the health of the mother are taken into account. And when I voted as a senator, I did not think that that was the case.” Trump’s idea on abortion went a lot differently than Mrs. Clintons. “Based on what she is saying and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take a baby and rip the baby out of the womb. In the ninth month. On the final day. And that’s not acceptable.” He said “Nobody has business doing what I just said, doing that, as late as one or two or three or four days prior to birth. Nobody has that.” Although that’s not exactly how abortion works, he’s got a point.

Mr. Trump has been accused of being racist multiple times. The main reason for this is because he said, “When Mexico sends its people, they aren’t sending their best — They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.” While every single Mexican isn’t a rapist or a criminal,  he’s partially right about the drugs. According to mic.com, 90 percent of cocaine enters the U.S. through the Mexican border. These cartels also manufacture 80 percent of the crystal meth sold in America, 14 percent of the heroin and a huge amount of marijuana. Trump’s plan for immigration might be radical but so is the percentage of drugs entering the border. Some say he’s racist for wanting to deport illegal immigrants. They have broken the law while others who want to come in legally have to go through the rigorous process.

Unlike Obama and Hillary, Trump is willing to speak his mind, and has stated that he would react differently to the Russians and to Vladimir Putin. In response to this, people are either agreeing with him or acting scared of the results from these actions. Vladimir Putin needs to respect the American president rather than look down on him, as he currently does to Obama. Trump has been bashed for his, ‘lack of filter,’ but where you see a lack of filter, I see transparency. I see a man who says what he means and means what he says. He takes out the ‘political correct’ filter. I see a man who is fighting for what he truly believes in, even though those idea’s are sometimes crazy.
