The most hyped debate in recent times is over, but what happened?
It started with Hillary charging ahead like a steam roller, because she had the assurance that the news media will cover or make excuses for any mistakes she may make, while the Donald was just buzzing around like a little fly making little sound bites here and there.
The worst mistake Trump made was when Hillary started talking about creating jobs and Trump criticized this, but he was silent about how when Bill Clinton was president (and was supported by Hillary) and signed into law the “North American Free Trade Agreement” and also signed into law our membership in the “World Trade Organization”, and then just to make sure the damage was Complete, also gave China special trade status. The result of these laws was to make American manufactures compete with countries that had labor costs about one or two dollars and hour while
Americans had an average labor cost of about $10 an hour. The result of this was massive damage to our manufacturing sector with about 1/3 of our manufacturing capacity going to other countries. This damage was so severe that even today, America still has not recovered, Trump also did not mention that Hillary and her husband lied to Americans by saying NAFTA would create jobs which has clearly not happened, NAFTA only created massive damage and job loss in America.
Another mistake Trump made was when Hillary said Trump should publish his tax returns; instead of saying, “he will publish his tax returns when Hillary publishes an audit of the Clinton Foundation” he only promised to publish his tax returns later. The Clinton Foundation has been Accused of being a money laundering operation by some people because only about 6% of its revenues go to poverty programs while the rest just disappears like a typical scam.
Hillary also criticized Trumps tax cut plan as “trickle Down Economics” and so is proven to be unworkable, But Trump made a good counter in saying that America has one of the highest corporate tax rates in the world and so is driving manufacturing away from America. If America dropped it’s current 35% corporate tax down to 15% it would attract manufacturing back to America. The Democratic parties policies of high taxes and over regulation has made America a place where you can’t do business. Trump proposed to change this with lower taxes and less regulation. Ronald Reagan already proved this works.
Hillary is a scandal rich candidate, but yet Trump did not take advantage of this opportunity. Trump said nothing about the Clinton Foundation pay to play scandal. Nothing about Hillary destroying 33,000 subpoenaed top secret emails, and the FBI director, James Comey (Obamas lap dog), letting her go on this matter. Nothing about her saying,”at this point what difference does it make”, when four brave Americans were murdered in Benghazi. Nothing about her lie about a video causing the Banghazi attack. Nothing about her helping Russia buy a uranium mine in
Canada in exchange for a donation to the Clinton Foundation. Nothing about her covering up for her rapist husband. Nothing about, after serving in the White House, walking out with the silverware, paintings and furniture. Nothing about her lie about being under sniper fire in Ukraine. Maybe Trump did this because of the hammering the liberal press gave him. When the news media did his to Mitt Romney, he went to the debate with Obama so politically frozen correct that he was barely able to talk. This didn’t affect Trump that much, but his performance was not as expected. Maybe at the next debate, the real Trump will be back. I hope.
Hillary makes great speeches, but she also has a reputation of shady dealing that often crosses the line into illegal behavior. But she has Obama covering for her and keeping the FBI away from her. Donald Trump often says the wrong thing at the wrong time and sure knows how to raise peoples tempers. But Donald Trump is a business man, he knows business; this expertise is what America needs right now, not Hillary’s socialist stupidity. The real business world is sometimes not nice, but it’s the real world and Trump learned how to work it in the “dog eat dog” business world of New York City.
“If he can make it there, he can make it anywhere”.
But, just to get real here, Donald Trump has a very slim chance of becoming president, mainly because he just threw away the women vote for no good reason, and women are the majority voters. The only reason he is doing so good in the polls is because Hillary is that bad, I mean criminally bad.
The bottom line here is 70% of Americans believe America is on the wrong track. Hillary will continue Obama”s road to socialism, and anybody with half a brain knows that socialism is a historically proven failure. Donald Trump knows this and is a master at how free enterprise works and can make it work again in America, if only he can get back the women’s vote.
