    I don't trust either...... Brexit was a result of people believing they can turn the clock back.... Trump promotes the same "make it great like it WAS."
    But times have changed... the world has changed. Extremists on both sides stand firm while the rest of us vote for the lessor of two evils.... yet I believe there is a candidate that has the clearest solutions for ALL problems.... check out Jill Stein - listen to her speeches and read her messages.

    you can argue she does not have a chance - I argue that voting for the lessor of two evils is asinine. ChangeIsHere NOW!

    Trump. Logically and emotionally, he's my preferred choice. First of, he has built a monetary empire and this is no mean feat, so he knows something about organization and handling people. He's paid taxes in the millions so he knows something about government's role in creating a right environment. His personality also seems to be one that listens (even though he prefers not to seem that way) so he'll know how to get great advice to run the country and protect it. Finally, the principle of deductive reasoning makes it obvious that you cannot separate a person's past decisions from the likely future actions; Hillary seems to be careless, almost fraudulent even. Her actions have made other human beings affected by her decisions get killed. Her time in office with president Obama hasn't stopped terrorism and senseless and painful killings. Why would anyone HOPE that she'd do or achieve anything better as president that she couldn't while in the corridors of power. Be careful America, governance isn't just about semantics. Choose wisely.

    Hillary. I trust the people closest to her, I trust her knowledge, and I trust her to know when it is time to act in the best interest of the COUNTRY. She's already been in the hot seat for many many years. I may not have been her biggest fan, but I trust her a LOT more than Trump.

    I believe Trump did not expect to get as far into this as he has, and believe he is 100% in it for selfish reasons to boost his celebrity and that is all. He will make less as president, for one thing, and the responsibility will be enormous especially given the economic, environmental, and shaky global climate. I think he will act rashly, inflate his ego at every given turn, and ignore the real safety issues at hand.

    Look at her behavior, approved by Obama, in Honduras where we betrayed the common people there, supporting a military coup against our own laws, and backing a government that is essentially an organized criminal enterprise.

Also, Hillary's record shows she is a "hawk" when it comes to war and making money for arms manufacturers. Trump's rhetoric seems to indicate that he too is a "hawk." I would be ecstatic if both fell off the face of the political map.fashion news....http://fashionary24.com/

    I would personaly trust Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.  She has more  experience and Trump says whatever he want.  A presidents job isn't to say the first thing that pops into their minds, it's to say what best benefits their Country.  Trump has been caught saying rascist, sexest, and just inappropriate things that a possibly future president shouldn't be saying.  He's made it very clear that no matter what the discussion is on he's not going to refrain himself.

    Trump is of course far better, since Hillary herself has proven to be an enemy of the country.

    From being a bag lady at the Rose Law firm, raking in tens of millions selling influence to foreign governments through her foundation to leaving our ambassador and brave soldiers to die for political purposes in Benghazi, the prospect of a Hillary presidency should be absurd.

    Trump at least is a patriot who loves America and won't bow to the politically correct non sense that's putting our military in grave danger and making us a laughingstock all over the world.

    I feel as though the more qualified person to defend our country against enemies would be Hillary Clinton. This is simply because Donald trump is to irrational and in many cases to ignorant to make the right decisions. to fight against our enemies, you have to be able to determine who the United States enemies are. it is obvious based on his previous interviews and speeches, that Donald trumps main priorities are to get rid of all Latin and middle eastern people, or those that possess the physical traits of a Latin or Middle Eastern person. how can we trust that Donald trump won't attempt to use a nuclear weapon the first chance he gets, if he's already got a plan to build a wall on the boarder of Mexico and the U.S. and make them pay for it?

    It appears that we have two people running for president: a criminal and a hot-head. I would feel more comfortable with a criminal in the White House. At least, Secretary Clinton has had experience in politics and in domestic and foreign policy. With her experience comes the ability to protect the country. She has negotiating experience, as well. I realize that Mr. Trump has negotiating experience; however, negotiating a multi-million-dollar deal is different than negotiating with foreign countries.

    I also agree with the person who said that Mr. Trump isn't seriously running for POTUS. I think he is in it to make certain that Secretary Clinton wins. It appears that he is sabotaging his campaign every chance he gets. Let's not forget that he and the Clintons are good friends and that, if truth be known, Mr. Trump is a democrat. With his being the republican nominee, Clinton is almost guaranteed to win in November without much effort. We do not have to worry about Mr. Trump protecting our country because Secretary Clinton will be our next POTUS.

    I've been with Trump from the start, though I'll say I don't put my faith in anyone - I love what he's saying, but I want to see it happen.

    He's a business man, straight forward and successful - what investor hasn't accumulated some kind of debt? Seems like taxes and loans are the only things people can throw at him (along with jokes about the only things anyone seems to know about him, shows and real estate) - aside from what the media drones on about 'offensiveness' (not to say the accusations of accumulated debt against him aren't lies as well, who knows). No one seems to point fingers at the /true/ state of America since she and the rest of the admin have been in office - we're in dire straights. The next four years of what, exactly? Getting nowhere? We can be considered stupidly nice if she's in office, at least - nice enough to give our neighbors access to our nuclear codes that everyone seems to go on about not want him to have - not him, but all of our neighboring countries do - thanks to Hillary.

    He also doesn't have any blood on his hands as far as we're concerned. Call it speculation and ignore the accusations (backed up with ironic timing and 'coincidences' with painful proximity) that she's had for years and years. And no I'm not just tossing around Benghazi. There's a hell of a lot more everyone just shrugs off.

    In all honesty everything we're fed is just edited journalist/political jargon, most of it tweaked for the Clinton's favor and a small part of it obsessing over what an outsider he is. Research is biased, and the internet is all but bought out; who knows what our facts are birthed from. I like him because he won't kiss up and cower to everyone else - there are different approaches to diplomacy that /don't/ involve just handing over billions of dollars without anything in return. I also like him because he may need a little verbal editing, but it's raw, unedited is what everyone's always asking for, right? Until it ruffle's feathers, then we're all afraid and running back to political correctness, the crap that got us here in the first place.

    So yeah, I'm for Trump. I don't know exactly what he has planned (cause he's not ignorantly airing it on national television like some people) but at least he has the guts to actually mention our enemies and the soldiers risking their lives to fight them.

    Oh and he encourages American flags. That's always a good indication of who's fighting for us.

    I don't understand the trump helps hillary win thing, either. Why would he encourage all this hate against her, did anyone read the DNC leaks....??

But I have to be fair to both sides only because I think both could different things that would be good and bad. Hillary's proven track record has shown that she has about as much sense as private in the Army be the Secretary of Defense. Everything she touches turns to fire. But she at least knows that side of the spectrum.  What scares me though is the Donald Trump has no experience with the military and its tactics of using force. I do however think that Trump genuinely wants to make us safe again, and I am behind that. Yeah he may not  be the best leader of the nation, but he is going to try his hardest. He will not lie to us and he will do everything in his power to make us and The U.S.A. great again, how cliche.

It will be hard becUse everything runs through the Senate so of course every bill won't be passed or even looked at but Hilary got this and all she needs is support.  If you don't vote then you have no room to talk in my opinion.  People talk all day long and none of them are even voters.

  42. Jason Matthews profile image90
    Jason Matthewsposted 3 years ago

    While I believe both candidates have major weaknesses in character and decision making (and that's an understatement), I would trust Trump over Hilary and here's why:
    1. Trump speaks his mind and is often politically incorrect. He has many times said things that are extreme--I think this is mostly because in the past, this tactic has worked to get him votes and attention. Most people now agree that this strategy is quite old and he needs a new approach. Trump has said some things that are flat out inaccurate or morally wrong. However, Trump has yet to lie through his teeth the way Hilary has been repeated times, especially in light of the FBI investigation and findings which she continues to refute. I would rather have an arrogant, loud-mouthed, leader, over one who is sly, cunning, and untruthful.
    2. Many people support Hilary for her experience. What experience, may I ask? What actions has she actually taken and what positive outcomes is she responsible for creating? Yes, she has held a number of public positions, but she constantly leaves a wake of issues behind her. Trump does have a questionable record when it comes to his business dealings, but unlike Hilary, he actually has something to show for his efforts. Though many who haven't been nearly as successful mock Trump's empire, it is nonetheless a real estate empire he has built. He has experienced failure and has pushed through with perseverance. I would rather have that type of leader than one who simply holds positions without working toward significant, visible, and positive change. Please understand, I am not a fan of Trump's past, but it certainly "trumps" that of Hilary's.
    3. Generally, Trump is a supporter of smaller government, but he does believe in establishing respect though a strong military. Although he isn't as conservative as some on the right would hope, he still supports the ideas of lower taxes, more energy production, and less government intervention in the private sector. I would much prefer this to Hilary's plans to enlarge government, increase taxes, and increase government services. I do not believe she has a fiscally responsible plan and as sometime who has studied finance and economics, I know that less government involvement in the market leads to increased economic growth.
    Please understand that I am not an advocate for either candidate. They are both certainly far from favorable choices. However, the question asked which would I trust more and that answer is Trump.

    The United States government has two main jobs which is to protect our Rights and to secure our borders from foreign invaders. They have failed in recent years more and more. Government is doing opposite in fact.
    Neither of these two candidates are qualified for the job of President but their are other candidates. Neither has experience in leadership and neither seem to be possessing sound logic.
    Your query is not based on anything more than "what do you think" whereas a real poll would contain many questions and repeats of questions worded differently to weed out liars.
    Who I trust to defend this country is the armed men and women in the military and the sane citizens of America. Inhabitants of Congress and The White House should never be trusted as they are motivated by votes and money and little else. They are liars that somehow are continually hired (try that in a job interview) and most are morally bankrupt. Voting is no hard feat but to be truly involved one must maintain contact with their Representatives. If you do not vote you are still qualified to complain contrary to barroom pundits spewing the opposite of what I just stated. I was born when Ike was President and this upcoming election will be the worst choices I have ever seen but hopefully the other parties will take advantage of this disaster and we might see real change.

      Tell me, if Hillary is so unqualified, then why do New Yorker's like her (51%) as Senator (and don't say they didn't, they absolutely did) and why did she finish her term as Secretary with a nice positive rating (57%)?

      Well said Stacy, maybe some good will come of this election after all. Mr Esoteric, I don't see how approval ratings from a couple of polls from years ago equates to her being qualified. Her current rating is awful, but it's also not relevant to that

      So an approval rating is evidence of her qualifications?I'll bet the kardashians had a better approval rating.When the media who does the polls is in your pocket not hard to see an approval rating swayed.She is an approved liar & criminal

    Trump - Hillary already has a proven track record full of lies, deceitfulness and an inability to connect with  the ordinary U.S. Citizen.  She is driven by popularity and money.

      Thank you for participating, cowboy. FYI I'm checking into why a Best answer was chosen here when I did not choose it. Hope it can be removed.

    Leading a great nation like the U.S does not require that type of arrogance Trump has just like his Name suggests. At least at some ponit in a presidents leadership some advice has to be taken from other leaders too, something that I belive Trump cannot do. He is alredy this arrogant and he is not even the president already. Hillary is nnot also that perfect, but compared to Trump she is a thousand times better.

      Hi Debra, thank you for answering here.  Yes, we must be informed well on each candidate's intentions as to how they will lead our country and defend it against those who are intent on harming us.

      Debra, while I think you are wrong about Hillary, I agree with Nudely, please do vote for somebody.  America can be successful as a country ONLY if people participate in running the country by voting..

      No, Clinton's isn't. You might look up the definition and characteristics of narcissism Bro; only Trump exhibits those, not Clinton, not Pence, not Kane, not Johnson, not Weld, and not Stein .. ONLY #LyinTrump.

      1.) Inflated view of achievements & talents
      2.) no limit to sense of self-importance
      3.) preoccupied w/ fantasies of power, brilliance, & success
      4.) think that they're special and unique
      5.) expect and need constant and excessive admiration

      Hi Kace, thank you for sharing your choice.  Hmm, that is an interesting thought ...a narcissistic for President.  Surely something to think on more.

    To be honest, Trump. Yes, Clinton has political experience and with that experience one would assume that she would be the better fit to defend our country against our enemies. Yet, I do not think so. She could not even protect our own in Benghazi. She did not properly guard her emails and much of those were of national security. How can we trust someone to defend our country as PRESIDENT when before they are president they have not done it? Do we really expect there to be some monumental change? Probably not. Trump wants to secure our borders, he wants to better equip our military. How do you expect to defend when guns laws are being pushed and our military is shrinking? Clinton has been corrupt for awhile, and many have seen it during the campaign as well. Its sickening. I wouldn't trust my house with her let alone an entire country. Some might say, Trump isn't much better. But I venture to say he sure is better then Clinton. Take what you will from this, If you don't like it, well, it's my opinion smile

      Consider Kyle that 1) Clinton was not "personally" responsible for Benghazi's defense, Steven's was; her responsibility is part of job as Secretary & 2) "MOST" is not defined as 0.0001% which is 3 out if 30,000 actually having a (C) mark somewher

      Hi Kyle, thank you for answering and sharing your opinion quite well here.  You make a lot of good points as to each candidate.  It is sickening for sure!  I appreciate your directness in answering.
