Convince Me..You Get Three Chances

October 11, 2016

This was it: the final three presidential debates before Election Day. In late September and October, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were given three chances to show the American people why he or she should be President of the United States.

If you didn’t get a chance to watch these debates for yourself, here’s a brief summary:

Debate #1: Over 84 million people watched as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump shared their thoughts on how they would grow the economy, create new jobs, keep people safe, build relationships and trade with other countries, and much more.

Debate #2: In this debate, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump answered questions from people who haven’t decided who they’ll be voting for yet. The questions ranged from how they will be a good role model and lead ALL people to their thoughts on international a airs and the future of the United States.

So how did the lively, and at times, finger-pointing- filled debate end? The debate ended with a person asking the question: “Would either of you name one positive thing that you respect in one another?” To which Hillary Clinton complimented Donald Trump on his children and Donald Trump complimented Hillary Clinton on her drive and persistence.

Debate #3: The last of the presidential debates gave the candidates a nal chance to show the American people why he or she should be President of the United States. While both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump talked about their experience and plans for the country, they also had to defend their mistakes and some of the things that people accused them of doing.
