After last night’s Second Presidential debate, Trump’s campaign seems to be finished. He completely failed in explaining his joke about sexually assaulting women without consent over a decade ago. He downplayed the incident by calling it “locker room banter” and apologized to America. Yet he stated these lewd comments when he was 59 years old. If he said it at that age, it simply shows how immature and disgusting that he is. His temperament is the opposite of presidential. Trump really went low in saying that his comments were just words and accused Bill of doing worse. He was told by advisors and the media that this was a bad idea but as Clinton said, “Trump just runs his campaign any way that he wants.”
This nonsense took up quite some time in the beginning of the debate. Clinton did take jabs at Trump for his previous comments that offended a wide variety of people. I’d hate to repeat all of that for it makes me feel like throwing up. Anyway Clinton seemed to be the only one fully answering all the questions. She realizes that there are problems with Obamacare and, unlike Trump, wants to fix it, not abolish it. When both candidates were asked how to combat islamophobia, Clinton revealed that she wants to make Muslims feel comfortable in our country for our nation was built on religious tolerance. However, Trump showcased his islamophobia by basically saying that Muslims need to report extremist Muslims. (Like they know about all other Muslims.) Even though Trump changed his mind about banning Muslim immigrants, his idea of extreme vetting will ensure that nobody gets into the country.
In terms of foreign policy, Clinton was on point and had more information. She stated what we need to do to fix the Syria problem by holding Assad and the Russians accountable. She also considered arming the Kurds to essentially combat ISIS. But she was firm on not sending troops on the ground. Yet it seems Trump wants no parts of countering Assad in Syria for he believes the Syrian regime is killing ISIS. Even though they want to focus on killing the country’s rebels. This debate was pretty sloppy. There was less focus on the issues and more name calling. Trump barely answered any question and wanted to berate Clinton the entire time. If the debate questions were essays on an exam, Trump would certainly fail for rambling and deflecting. Clinton would have been okay for she focused on providing the best answers for the American people. That is simply the reason why she is more presidential and according to Trump, “she never gives up.” Clinton will not give up fighting for the American people.
