all the issues favor Trump–of course he doesn’t like to talk issues:58h.,b58
Clinton and the media avoid the issues because they know she’s hurt by them. Trump avoids the issues for reasons that are harder to ascertain—perhaps because he doesn’t fully realize how much they benefit him or perhaps just because he finds it easier and more enjoyable to talk about something else. But if he were to start talking policy, his electoral fortunes might turn around.
According to the U.S. the Census Bureau, the percentage of the population that is foreign-born has already surpassed the percentage during the great waves of immigration in 1880 or 1920-That percent age, 13.6 percent, has almost tripled since 1970 (from 4.7 percent) and is on course to exceed 15 percent within a decade.
‘Compare those numbers with the two candidates’ stances. Trump talks of building a border wall, taking deportation seriously, and ending President Obama’s lawless executive actions on immigration. Prior to taking those unilateral actions, which effectively declared millions of illegal immigrants to be “legal,” Obama said, “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply, through executive order, ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.” Then he did it anyway. “Hillary Clinton, in marked contrast with Trump, has said that she would expand Obama’s executive actions and she would surely appoint Supreme Court justices who (along with the 4 Bill Clinton and Obama appointees) would rule that she could. She has said, “I would not deport children. I do not want to deport family members either.” Apparently believing the Obama administration has been too aggressive in dealing with illegal immigration, she says that she will ‘stop the raids, stop the round-ups. “stop the raids, stop the round-ups, stop the deporting of people who are living here doing their lives.” She ‘will introduce comprehensive immigration reform with a pathway to full and equal citizenship within her first 100 days in office” and will “demand that there be a in the house.
She has “proposed an Office of immigration affairs for the white house. And she wants to give illegal immigrants access to Obamacare: “We should let families—regardless of immigrating of status—buy into the Affordable Care act exchanges.
The average premium increases that insurers are requesting for Obamacare plans in 2017 is a whopping 23 percent. Many insurers are bailing out. The slow-motion death spiral is proceeding. Real Clear Politics lists 206 polls taken on Obamacare so far during Obama’s second term—3 found it to be popular, 202 found it to be unpopular, 1 has found a tie.
Clinton says she will “defend and expand the Affordable Care Act.” In a clear step toward a true government monopoly, she says that she would add a “public option”—a government-run plan to obamacare.
According to the Commerce Departments bureau of economic analysis, , after adjusting for inflation, average yearly GDP growth under obama has been an anemic 1.5 percent—last among the 12 postwar presidents and less than half of President Jimmy Carter’s tally 3.3 percent). Even Obama’s best year of growth (2.6 percent, in 2015) was below average across the past 70 years. Median household income, moreover has fared worse under Obama than the GDP has.
Corporate tax rate to 15 % (down from 35 percent today), reducing personall taxes, introducing a temporary moratorium on federal regulations, the and lifting restrictions on all sources of American energy. In marked contrast, Clinton wants to increase taxes, government spending, and regulation. She was for the TPP a central part of Obama’s economic agenda, before she was against it. (Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe , a close friend of clinton , has said she’s still for it).
Trump is focused on restoring law and order, while Clinton is focused on increasing leniency in criminal sentencing. At a time when new terrorist attacks are occurring every few days or weeks.. Trump isn’t skittish about saving “Islamic terrorism” and can’t be held responsible for ISIS ascendancy while Clinton is and can. At a time when we are approaching $20 trillion in national debt—nearly double what the tally was when Obama took office—Clinton is calling for “free” college. At a time when the vast majority of Americans oppose providing taxpayer funding for abortion, Clinton is calling for killing off the Hyde amendment, the long standing protection against such practices that for decades enjoyed bipartisan support. (What’s more. then-senator Clinton repeatedly voted against what is now the federal ban on — partial-birth abortions.
