Hillary Clinton:

Foreign Policy-  “Maintain a strong military, strengthen alliances, being firm but wise with our rivals, defeating ISIS and enforce the Iran Nuclear Deal”

Immigration- “We need a plan to create full and equal citizenship. Close private immigration detention centers, and help more eligible people become naturalized”

Healthcare- “Fought for equal and fair health for my entire career. Defend the affordable care act and go further to reduce costs. Her plan will crackdown on drug companies charging to much and slow the growth of out of pocket costs”

Environment- “It is real and she will stop it by not allow drilling in the arctic, make significant investments in clean energy, and stop take giveaways for big oil companies. Our children’s health and future depend on this”.

Crime and Safety- “Everyone in america should respect the law and be respected by the law. We need to end mass incarceration and use police body cameras to improve police accountability. Increase substance abuse treatment and also invest in job training and education which are the foundations for success”

Education- “As president, I will work to make sure every child from every zip code has access to world class education which includes high quality pre-school. Must support teacher training and teachers”.

Guns- “Will fight for common sense reform by keeping guns out of the hands of terrorists, domestic abusers, and other violent criminals,  which includes comprehensive background checks, closing the loophole that allows violent people to get guns”.

National Security- “Maintain cutting-edge military. Stand up to our rivals, and work with our allies to dismantle global terror networks by launching an intelligence surge”.


Donald Trump:

Foreign Policy-  “Increase Military presence in and around the South China sea. Investigate and punish China for unfair trade policies. Destroy the Islamic state.  Lastly designate China as a currency manipulator”.

Immigration-  “Increase and expand fencing in and around our borders with constant surveillance and export a mass of deportations for the undocumented”.

Healthcare–  “Make health insurance taxes deductible and make a series of reforms with congress to allow free market principles and allow economic freedom”.

Environment- “Withdraw from the Paris accords and limit global Carbon dioxide emissions and increase offshore drilling and the burning of fossil fuels”.

Crime and Safety- “Respect and follow the laws but we need to give back the power to the police because they do a good job defending us.  We need to restore Law  and Order in the United States and restore Confidence of the people”.

Education- “Wants to establish the ability for every child to go to school even in extreme poverty and he would like to put up to 20 million dollars into the education system to improve school type funds for children living in poverty”.

Guns- “Every American citizen should be able to bear arms and should not be infringed upon but wants to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of criminals and terrorists”.

            National Security-  “Destroy our rivals and increase our military in just a few short years so nobody will mess with us and there are serious threats facing the United States and the only way to defend it is to increase and strengthen our military”.
