    Let's look at the issues. Here are some of Trump's proposals:
    • Institute a five year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service
    • Create a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government
    • Announce intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.
    • Announce withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
    • Lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
    • Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
    • Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.
    • Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
    • Work with Congress on a Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.
    • Work with Congress on a School Choice And Education Opportunity Act Redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.
    • Work with Congress on a Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
    I think these proposals will empower the people. Hillary, in contrast, will further empower the global elite. What do you think?

    Hillary will give us more unfair trade deals that benefit the 1%.

    The real issue is that Trump is an Orange Clown Rapist, and Hellary is a lying, cheating pantsuit bulldyke. Everything else is just noise. Voters know what matters.

    Hillary doesn't have the character to lead the American people anywhere but down.

    I appreciate the non-partisan flavor of your remark.

    The problem is the left can't run on the issues so running their enemy into the mud is all they have. Unfortunately you have to deal with it or it sticks.

    Is it character assassination to point out willful violations of national security laws and obstruction of justice?

    I'm not saying the character attacks are all false or insignificant. I just thought we might consider the issues as well.
