Donald Trump, chairman and CEO of The Trump Organization, is the Republican presidential nominee for the upcoming election.

Donald Trump has accomplished more than most people could even imagine doing. He’s made billions of dollars, he’s been a reality television star, and he’s even gained enough support and recognition in this year’s election to be remembered for years to come; even if he were to lose the upcoming election.

Donald Trump, however, is not one to lose. Throughout the entirety of the race to become his party’s presumptive nominee, no one thought he had even the slightest chance at winning. Yet he systematically annihilated each and every one of his rivals leading to his nomination.

Talking extensively about winning, specifically America winning, is one of Donald Trump’s main talking points, and it is incredibly effective.

“We are gonna win, win, win. We’re going to win with military, we’re going to win at the borders, we’re going to win with trade, we’re going to win at everything. And some of you are friends and you’re going to call, and you’re going to say, ‘Mr. President, please, we can’t take it anymore, we can’t win anymore like this, Mr. President, you’re driving us crazy, you’re winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I’m going to say I’m sorry, we’re going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again,” said Donald Trump after receiving an endorsement from the NRA (National Rifle Association) located in Louisville, Kentucky.

Donald Trump is a businessman, meaning he knows how to make a deal. It’s one of his big hitters, especially during the presidential debates. Trade deals. What Mr. Trump proposes is withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which is a government regulated disaster masquerading itself as free trade. He proposes we renegotiate the NAFTA agreement so that the United States can start benefiting from our deals instead of always getting the short end of the stick, among other proposals. With Donald Trump, we’ll start winning on the world stage again.

Donald Trump is often criticized as being erratic and untrustworthy especially regarding the nuclear codes, when in fact he is quite the opposite. Donald Trump is anti-war, and against intervening in foreign spats. He wants America to stop interfering with foreign conflicts, not start them. He plans to cooperate with Russia to make  reasonable deals with them, not by imposing incredibly unreasonable no-fly zones.

Whether it be building a wall to prevent illegal immigration, or Mr. Trump’s plans for bringing back jobs from overseas-all of his plans have one thing in common, the common man. All of his plans are tailored towards the everyman, the citizens who hold up the big wealthy corporations.

The democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, does not share these values and will not better the United States of America. She has been in public office for 30 years, and in all of that time she has yet to do anything noteworthy or fix the very things she claims she wishes to fix as president.

Hillary Clinton is an interventionist candidate, and is trying to start conflict with other countries, namely Russia and China, which is both unnecessary and extremely unhealthy for the world and one of our biggest trade partners. She has been adamant in her ideas in that she wants to create a no-fly zone in Syria, which would more than likely lead to a war between Russia, Syria, and the US.

“I am well aware of the really legitimate concerns you have expressed from both the president and the general,” Clinton said in response to a question regarding the previously proposed no-fly zones in Syria during the third presidential debate. “This would not be done just on the first day. This would take a lot of negotiation. It would also take making it clear to the Russians and the Syrians that our purpose here was to provide safe zones on the ground.”

Russia has been militarily involved in the Syrian Civil War for approximately 1 year. If the United States were to get involved now, and impose such an extreme regulation, negotiations would not go smoothly.

Hillary Clinton does not deserve to be president. The DNC blatantly boosted her in the primary elections, thereby eliminating any chance for Bernie Sanders or another democratic candidate to become president by leaving millions of votes unaccounted for. She’s taken massive donations from countries with values which oppose western civilization entirely, and more importantly, she is not qualified for president as a result of the sheer amount of treasonous actions she’s taken part in, in regards to her private email server.

Whatever criticisms you may have regarding Donald Trump, be it his policies or what he joked about with a friend eleven years ago, the actions of Hillary Clinton are overwhelmingly worse in comparison.

“If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney-general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation,” stated Donald Trump in the second 2016 presidential debate, further solidifying his backers and winning over some independents as well.

Donald Trump is going to make America great again, he is going to make America safe again, and the Cooney Crier is backing his campaign with full support.
