In 2016 we face the presidential campaign of republican nominee Donald Trump against democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Both candidates might have said things we do not agree with, but Donald Trump has crossed lines. He is unfit to run the country.

The United States of America is supposed to be a land of freedom and opportunity, but how can you be truly free if the president discriminates against the majority of the population? Trump has made discriminatory comments against women and multiple races.

In a debate and the Republican primary, Donald Trump specifically called out comedian and actress, Rosie O’Donnell. “You’ve called women ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs, and ‘disgusting animals.” Said Megyn Kelly to Trump. “Only Rosie O’Donnell,” said Trump in response.

More recently at a presidential debate, Trump said “I said very tough things to her, and I think that everybody would agree that she deserves it and nobody feels sorry for her.”

Since George Washington was president, America’s voting system has stayed the same. Donald Trump has said at a debate that the voting system is rigged against him. If he loses, it threatens the legitimacy of the voting system. The statements that the voting system are rigged is false.

Jon Husted who is in charge of the elections in Ohio has said “I can assure Donald Trump that I am in charge of the elections in Ohio and they’re not going to be rigged. I’ll make sure of that.”

In the case that Trump ends up as president, he is in charged of the military. A large issue with Trump being in charge of the military is that Trump has said would force the military to commit war crimes.

More specifically, he said he would order the military to kill the families of Muslim terrorists and institute interrogation acts worse than waterboarding, which is already considered borderline torture. CIA director Michael Hayden said the military may refuse orders that constitute war crimes. Trump said they will not refuse him if he is in charge.

Even though Trump is in charge of the military so he has the right to give orders he should not be giving orders that are crimes of war.
