Hello everyone who's reading my article. First of all, I would like to let you know that I am not fan of Trump also Hilary. I just want to share my thought about Trump and Hillary.

First, I would like to say sorry to the people who supported Hillary Clinton for 2016 presidential Election. U.S became disaster after Trump won 2016 presidential Election. Protests and riots are happening around the states to deny Trump's winning. Americans and people from other countries are devastated with his winning. Trump has been accused of being racist and sexist. Especially, Americans hate racists and sexist because this is the country where it has most diversity of race in the world thus Americans can't throw out the important race. In my opinion, people hate Trump because he is racist. However, look around us, we have tons of people like Trump even worst than Trump. People spotlighted and hate Trump just because he is racist. Why can't we look at brighter side of him when he actually came out with better plan to make this country better unlike Hilary. Both of the candidates are terrible. It's like a Cat and Dog fight. However, we have to know about who Hilary is. I hate to say that Hilary is big fat liar. She is very much covered with good and kind image by many people. Ever since, Hilary ran presidential campaign, her points were all vague that I don't even know what is going to do make this country better. Also, do you guys know that presidential candidates are not allowed to use earpiece? She used earpiece during presidential debates? what is that? seriously. Also, many of us thinks that 32,000 e-mails were deleted accidentally, which they found out that it was accident. Honestly, In my opinion, What Trump says can be very very rude and tough. But, he has strong plans to make U.S better. Why don't we give him a chance?

I think when we talk about presidential candidates we can't use the logic of "There are a lot of people worst than him"

I think having that mentality already means we chose the wrong president. I don't have an opinion on Hilary or Trump and I knew my state was going to Hilary regardless. I'm going to give him a chance but a lot of people are just scared because of who Trump is as a person.

1) He flip flops on every issue. He's not clear on anything. He can be pro life today and not the same night. When you have a president that you don't even know what his policy is going to be, it's hard to be confident in your countries's future.

2) Racism is just straight out not okay for a president. This is 2016 we shouldn't have a guy eating a burrito bowl and using that as proof that he loves Mexicans. It's almost like he mocking people at this point.

3) People voted for Trump to say "Screw you" to the 1% but Trump is literally part of the 1%.

Hilary might be a liar but she has shown to have self control. Something that Trump doesn't have. Since he literally got his twitter access taken away by his own campaign manager.

He has shown that he can get away with clear racism and sexism. That he can lie to the American people and all of this was BEFORE he even becomes president.

Oh and the main reason people are angry is because at the end of the day the majority voted for Hilary and not Trump. He won fair and square but Hilary won the popular vote just not the electoral vote.

Hi Minjung! I think that the reasons many people hate Donald Trump is not only because he is racist, sexist, and xenophobic, but because he has literally zero political experience and has never held a political office. One of the main things people expect out of a presidential candidate is to have experience, especially on issues such as foreign policy. A lot of people try to say that he is a "business man" so he should be president, but these people need to remember that this country is not a business, and that many people's lives and families are at stake. He never stated a solid plan for this country that logically made sense. I think it is absolutely a joke that he was elected president. I also think that even people who claim that "they aren't racist or sexist" but voted for Donald Trump are equally as guilty of being racist or sexist. If they weren't racist or sexist, they wouldn't have completely overlooked the fact that racism and sexism is the foundation of his entire campaign.
