What Makes Hillary So Special?

Hillary Clinton is the first woman to be the nominee for a major party. She has an extensive background in law and politics, and has a lot of experience being in office. This could potentially give her an edge, as the other nominees do not have the same level of experience. Her tool is mainly the fact that she is a woman who will fight for other women, and is in support of policies that will improve the lives of minorities.

The 2016 Election

Background (Education):
Went to the New York Military Academy at age 13 for the apparent "disciplinary problems" his parents saw in him.
In 1968, he got his bachelors from the Wharton College of Finance at Pennsylvania State.
Religious Affiliation:
Donald Trump's parents were a part of the Christian branch of Presbyterianism.
He and his siblings attended the Marble Collegiate Church from a young age.
Though he's not an active member, he has publicly stated that he's still Presbyterian.
Previous Job Experience:
Donald Trump earned a net worth of 4.5 billion USD through real estate and business development and reality television.
His development projects include: The Grand Hyatt, Trump Towers, Trump Hotels across the nation, Trump Airlines, Trump Mortgage, Trump University, Trump Golf Courses etc. (Note: not all of these were successful).
Trump starred in both The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, which he claims to have gotten $213 million from.
Significance of This Slogan:
This slogan represents Trump's run for the presidential election in that he plans to build up jobs and bring the economy forward out of the $13 trillion debt we're currently facing. When his slogan says "again", he's referencing the era of republican president Ronald Reagan who ended The Cold War in 1991, developed Reaganomics, reduced government spending, and freed the American hostages during the Iranian hostage crisis.
Social/Internet Media:
Twitter Handle
- @realDonaldTrump

Personal Campaign Website
- www.donaldjtrump.com

Reason For These Sites?
Donald Trump uses social media in order to have his voice heard by younger generations who primarily use the internet and don't spend much time -if any at all- watching the actual news and the happenings of the election. He has a personal campaign website to specify his republican beliefs which can differ from the general ideas of the GOP as a whole.

What Sets Donald Trump Apart?
Unlike other candidates, Donald Trump is in no way a politician. None of his previous job experience deals with politics, which he uses to say that he can bring something "new" and non-corrupt to Washington.
In a way, Trump's survival tool is his outrageous and flamboyant way of getting his point across. Upon saying controversial things (like that of building a wall across the Mexican borderline), he brings intense media coverage to himself and to his campaign to allow for the possibility of more support with more people listening to him. During the primary election, Trump accumulated 62% of the republican party's media coverage throughout the whole primary process all by himself, leaving only 38% of media coverage for all other candidates combined. Thus, his bombastic and controversial opinions were what secured him the republican nomination, and are what continue to raise him in the polls for the general election.

Donald Trump Supporters
The major
supporters of the Trump Campaign include but are not limited to:
Newt Gingrich- former U.S. Representative
John Daly- professional golfer
Herschel Walker- former NFL player
Mike Tyson- professional boxer
Rudy Giuliani- former New York City mayor, in office during 9/11 attacks
Each of these people have publicly announced their support of Donald Trump. From each of their reasons, what can be gathered is that they either see him as a "good friend" of theirs and therefore automatically endorse him, or approve of his business ideas and his plans to fix the broken American economy. Some have also come out to speak against the allegations of Trump being racist.

Political Beliefs (Hillary Clinton)
Explanation of Campaign Ad:
In this video, Donald Trump emphasizes his past, and how his job experience and his knowledge of the American economy because of it will allow him to fix the country's economy. This video also serves to showcase himself as a Samaritan, as people working with him previously and currently speak on behalf of his generous donations/contributions and his acceptance of all people. He is said to -in the video- base his employee decisions off of their work ethic and dedication, not by what they look like or who they are. He is compared to Ronald Reagan, the 40th president who was admired and loved by both parties, in the way that he will bring "hope" back to the American people. Lastly, he resonates with Republican as he is said to be fully able to create new jobs and is pro law enforcement.
