Donald Trump

Donald Trump the Republican Candidate in this year’s Presidential Election addresses today’s issues on…

Abortion, Civil Rights, Corporations, Crime, Drugs, Education, Energy and Oil, Environment, Families and Children, Foreign Policy.

According to On The Issues Donald Trump has given his opinion about the following topics…

  • Abortion-TRUMP: As far as Planned Parenthood is concerned, I’m pro-life. I’m totally against abortion, having to do with Planned Parenthood. But millions and millions of women — cervical cancer, breast cancer — are helped by Planned Parenthood. So you can say whatever you want, but they have millions of women going through Planned Parenthood that are helped greatly. And I wouldn’t fund it. I would defund it because of the abortion factor, which they say is 3 percent. I don’t know what percentage it is. They say it’s 3%. But I would defund it, because I’m pro-life. But millions of women are helped by Planned Parenthood.
  • Budget and Economy-“I would borrow, knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal.”
  • Civil Rights-Well, I think profiling is something that we’re going to have to start thinking about as a country. And other countries do it. You look at Israel and you look at others, and they do it. And they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling. But we have to start using common sense, and we have to use our heads. Recently, we had tremendous numbers of people coming into a speech I was making. And people that obviously had no weapons, had no anything, they were going through screening–the same scrutiny as somebody else that looked like it could have been a possible person [of interest]. So, we really have to look at profiling.
  • Corporations-What’s happening right now is something that not been a subject of conversation by politicians. They haven’t talked about a corporate inversion. Companies are leaving the United States to go to other countries. They have trillions of dollars in those other countries. They can’t get their money back in. It’s probably two and a half trillion. All of that money could be used to rebuild our country
  • Crime-I want security for this country. I want to find out why those two horrible young people in California when they shot the 14 people. Many people saw pipe bombs and all sorts of things all over their apartment. Why weren’t they vigilant? Why didn’t they call the police? And by the way, the police are the most mistreated people in this country. I will tell you that. The most mistreated people. We need vigilance. There’s something going on and it’s bad. And I’m saying we have to get to the bottom of it.
  • Drugs-Well, I did not think about it, I said it’s something that should be studied and maybe should continue to be studied. But it’s not something I’d be willing to do right now. I think it’s something that I’ve always said maybe it has to be looked at because we do such a poor job of policing. We don’t want to build walls. We don’t want to do anything. And if you’re not going to want to do the policing, you’re going to have to start thinking about other alternatives. But it’s not something that I would want to do.
  • Education-Competition is why I’m very much in favor of school choice. Let schools compete for kids. I guarantee that if you forced schools to get better or close because parents didn’t want to enroll their kids there, they would get better. Those schools that weren’t good enough to attract students would close, and that’s a good thing.
  • For two decades I’ve been urging politicians to open the schoolhouse doors and let parents decide which schools are best for their children. Professional educators look to claim that doing so would be the end of good public schools. Better charter or magnet schools would drain the top kids out of that system, or hurt the morale of those left behind. Suddenly, the excellence that comes from competition is being criticized.
  • Energy and Oil-There has been a big push to develop alternative forms of energy–so-called green energy–from renewable sources. That’s a big mistake. To begin with, the whole push for renewable energy is being driven by the wrong motivation, the mistaken belief that global climate change is being caused by carbon emissions. If you don’t buy that–and I don’t–then what we have is really just an expensive way of making the tree-huggers feel good about themselves.
  • The most popular source of green energy is solar as several decades after installing solar panels to get your money back. That’s not exactly what I would call a good investment. Even if that number is only half right, what kind of investment do you want to make that takes 20 years before you break even
  • Environment-Well, I think these people always hit me with eminent domain, and frankly, I’m not in love with eminent domain. But eminent domain is something you need very strongly. When Jeb Bush said, “You used eminent domain privately for a parking lot.” It wasn’t for a parking lot. The state of New Jersey went to build a very large tower that was going to employ thousands of people–a big job in terms of economic development. I got hit very hard: it’s private, it’s private eminent domain. You understand that [Jeb and George Bush] took over a stadium in Texas,and they used private eminent domain.
  • Families and Children-The happiest people I know are those people who have great families and real values. I’ve seen it. I know it. People who have a loving spouse and have children they really love are happy people. Religion also plays a very large factor in happiness. People who have God in their lives receive a tremendous amount of joy and satisfaction from their faith.
  • Foreign Policy- People want to see borders. They don’t necessarily want people pouring into their country that they don’t know who they are and where they come from. People want to take their country back. They want to have independence, in a sense. And you see it all over Europe. You’re going to have, I think, many other cases where they want to take their borders back, they want to take their monetary [system] back, they want to take a lot of things back. They want to be able to have a country again. So I think you’re going to have this happen more and more. And I think it’s happening in the United States.

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton the democratic candidate in this year’s Presidential Election shares her opinion on the following topics…

Disability Rights, Labor Laws, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Healthcare, National Security, Immigration, Racial Justice.

  • Disability Rights-”We should acknowledge how the disabilities community has played such an important role in changing things for the better in our country.”
  • Labor Laws-I’ve always believed that when unions are strong, families are strong and America is strong. That is not a slogan for me. That is a statement of fact. You created the strongest middle class in the history of the world. You led the fight for affordable health care more than half a century ago. And today, you’re leading the fight to raise the minimum wage, which will lift 35 million working Americans out of poverty.
  • Infrastructure-In my first 100 days as president, I will work with both parties to pass a comprehensive plan to create the next generation of good jobs. Now the heart of my plan will be the biggest investment in American infrastructure in decades, including establishing an infrastructure bank that will bring private sector dollars off the sidelines and put them to work there.
  • Manufacturing-Manufacturing is coming back. … My job as your president will be to do everything I can to create more good-paying jobs, to get wages rising again for American workers and families.
  • Health Care-As your president, I want to build on the progress we’ve made. I’ll do more to bring down healthcare costs for families, ease burdens on small businesses, and make sure consumers have the choices they deserve. And frankly, it is finally time for us to deal with the skyrocketing out-of-pocket health costs, and particularly runaway prescription drug prices.
  • National Security-I believe the future holds far more opportunities than threats if we exercise creative and confident leadership that enables us to shape global events rather than be shaped by them.
  • Immigration-If we claim we are for family, then we have to pull together and resolve the outstanding issues around our broken immigration system. The American people support comprehensive immigration reform not just because it’s the right thing to do—and it is—but because they know it strengthens families, strengthens our economy, and strengthens our country. … We can’t wait any longer for a path to full and equal citizenship.
  • Racial Justice-If we stand with each other now, we can build a future where no one is left out or left behind, and everyone can share in the promise of America—which is big enough for everyone, not to be reserved for a few.
