Trump Before the Election vs Trump Now

Donald Trump made a series of promises on his historical journey to the state house. We take a look at his stances on key issues then, what he has done about them and his stand now that he is in office.

Rebuilding the country’s infrastructure

Trump promised that the country’s infrastructure would be second to none and promised to create jobs for millions of people while doing so. However, despite repeatedly promising to do so, no visible progress has been made so far.

Locking Up Hillary

Trump’s supporters wanted the Democratic candidate jailed for use of a private email server and consistently had ‘jail her up’ placards. Trump seemed to agree with them, at least by supporting calls for a fresh investigation. He even promised Hillary that when he wins, he would get a special prosecutor to look into her situation. Well, that did not happen and Trump went ahead to say that the country owed Hillary a debt of gratitude. read more

4 Key Issues the 2016 Candidates Should Address

The 2016 presidential race is gaining momentum, and with it has come the usual political atmosphere. This year’s race has perhaps attracted some of the most interesting candidates. Donald Trump, a real estate mogul who’s popular from his gigs in Hollywood, appears bent to be the undisputable Republican Party. Trump is already trying to ward off multiple attacks from politicians within and outside the US, mostly due to seemingly divisive comments he has made. Hillary Clinton is not a newcomer to politics, she’s been around for a long time. But the interesting thing is that she appears to be the first female candidate with a very real shot at the presidency. Although Bernie Sanders is still trying to prevent her from clinching the Democratic Party nomination, she’s appears to have her eyes trained on the target right now. Ben Carson, the popular Neurosurgeon, recently dropped out of the race and decided to instead lead a national nonprofit that encourages Christians to vote. read more

Is Marco Rubio GOP’s Best Hope?

Marco Rubio is the Florida senator whose name has featured prominently in the current presidential campaign. Some veteran GOP members have argued that the young politician might be the party’s best hope, especially at a time when criticism is mounting against Donald Trump’s divisive approach. But Rubio candle appears to be dimmed by somewhat poor performance during the Super Tuesday contest.

Of course, a victory in the Florida March 15 primary would give him momentum, but his current showing so far doesn’t do anything to encourage such notion. And if Marco Rubio loses his home state, that’d definitely be the end of his journey in the 2016 presidential contest. And that’s not just where it ends – a Florida loss would embarrass the energetic politician who’s been referred to as ‘brilliant’ and ‘ambitious’. read more
