Should we Give Rump our Precious Vote?

Past scandals:
to get elected to office of governor in 1992 (bribed 20% of voters)
She had an
with another man when he was married with two kids
Rump enforced the Existing Member Act:
You can only go to country clubs in Alabama IF your ancestors were a part of them
since 1970.
This law was
towards blacks since they were barely allowed to go to country clubs in the 70s!
Because most of the population that went to country clubs before were White, this
was covertly excluding Black people from country clubs.
What caused this to be created?
Many whites started sending complains about how the country clubs were becoming too “full” of newcomers.
These newcomers were actually just Black people, the Whites wanted them out
Rump grew sick of hearing these complaints and created the Existing Member Act
this caused many protests to occur because
she was being racist.
This act was repealed/revoked, or cancelled.

Campaign Events
What Will She Say?
Candidates have events and make appearances to raise attention and make a public profile.

A restricted class would be invited (Ex. Mitt Romney, Sheldon Anderson, Bob Perry)
A number of employees out of the restricted class such as caterers and planners.
Speakers and honorees
The news media
State Fairs
Who is attending?
Everyone! People of the state + voters of the state join together to meet the candidates, eat food, and play games!
Gaining voters has a lot of influence on what a candidate says to the public.
Donna is most likely to speak about
these topics during her campaign events:

Creating more jobs
Fixing Social Security issues
Opposing free college
Reducing our national debt
Creating a flat tax
Human trafficking

Campaign Laws
Federal Election Commission
People that will speak at Rump's events

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has a law that requires candidates to update their financial analysis at the end of the month
FEC allows people to be a part of the event even though they are not part of the restricted class.
Expenditures of all campaign events must go to the FEC with documented proof.
Mitt Romney
will speak/support Rump in reducing the national debt and cutting spending
agrees with Rump that she should help the middle class by creating a suitable tax for them
Sheldon Anderson
part of super PAC that supports Rump
will speak about why a democrat should not be president

will support Rump in her plans to help veterans from the Vietnam war in his speech

The majority, 62% of Americans, support Donna Rump for flat taxes, while Joe Biden aims at increasing taxes by $600 billion

Joe Biden will increase federal overall spending, while Donna Rump will aim to decrease it

Joe Biden prioritizes stopping tax cuts over reducing the national debt

Joe Biden was accused of selling his home to a MBNA executive for a very cheap price in return for support from the company

Both candidates support reducing the national debt

Rump may lose votes because some Americans don't want a female president

Rump's previous scandals may affect the number of votes she receives especially from non-white people due to her Existing Member Act
Donna Rump has successfully fundraised
$1.2 billion

$60 million more
than the amount predicted necessary to run a successful presidential campaign.

This also gave us an idea on the different percentages that make up funding for a campaign.

Also, we discovered the motives people have that make them want to run. The Library of Congress is a reliable website because it is a useful website provided by the government.
