According to another analysis, by the conservative research group The Tax Foundation, Clinton's proposals would shrink GDP by 1% and jobs by 311,000 in the long run. The plan would increase federal government revenue by about half a trillion dollars, but only $191 billion if macroeconomic impacts of the policies are taken into account.
Bring corporate money currently overseas back to the U.S. via a one-time repatriation tax rate of 10%. The analysis notes, however, that the plan would improve incentives to work, save, and invest.
Both candidates have announced their opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade agreement between 12 Pacific Rim countries that was signed in February 2016 but has not taken effect yet. In that role, Clinton championed the agreement and advocated for its successful negotiation and completion.
However, during the Democratic primary process, Bernie Sanders criticized the TPP, and Clinton remained non-committal for months before finally declaring her opposition to the trade deal. But we have failed to provide the basic safety net support that American workers need in order to be able to compete and win in the global economy.
We should focus on ending currency manipulation, environmental destruction and miserable working conditions. Such a tariff would make imports from China more expensive, thereby hurting Chinese exports but also raise prices for American consumers.
Allow individuals to fully deduct the cost of health insurance premiums on their tax returns. There is no policy recommendation on how this can be done other than “review basic options for Medicaid and work with states”.
Allow Health Savings Accounts (Has) for individuals (currently they are only for employees via their workplace). Lower out-of-pocket healthcare costs by enacting the following policies (outlined here): Require plans to provide 3 sick visits every year before the consumer has the start paying the deductible.
A tax credit of up to $2,500 for individuals ($5,000) for families for out-of-pocket medical expenses exceeding 5% of their annual income. This credit will be progressive i.e., phase out as income rises and not be available to people in higher tax brackets.
Strengthen authority to block or modify “unreasonable” health insurance rate increases. Clinton's plan does not specify what rate of increase can be considered reasonable or what would constitute a “clear justification” and who would decide that.
As president, I'll stand up for Planned Parenthood and women’s access to critical health services, including safe, legal abortion. Trump got into some hot water when he answered a question about what should happen if abortion was illegal and was performed any way.
Trump's VP nominee Mike Pence and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway both appeared to deflect the question of what would happen to undocumented immigrants who have not committed any crimes. In contrast, Clinton has called for a path to “full and equal citizenship” for undocumented immigrants who have not committed any violent crimes.
In his book The America We Deserve in 2000, Trump wrote that he supports the ban on assault weapons, as well as slightly longer waiting periods to purchase a gun. Trump's latest position on gun rights is outlined on his campaign's official website.
Clinton has said she wants to balance Second Amendment rights with the goals of keeping guns out of the “wrong hands”, in which category she places terrorists, domestic abusers and people with “serious mental challenges”. She has called for “commonsense reforms to keep guns away from terrorists, domestic abusers, and other violent criminals”.
Gun show loophole : Under federal law, private sellers are not required (nor permitted) to do background checks on buyers. In addition, private sellers are not required to record the sale, nor ask for identification.
An important provision in the bill was the “three strikes” law, which made a life sentence mandatory for repeat felony offenders, including non-violent crimes. Critics of the bill, titled Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, say it was responsible for mass incarceration of thousands of African American men and had a devastating impact on communities of color.
Proponents of the law argue it contributed to the rapid decline in violent crime that began in the mid-1990s. In recent months, Trump has criticized Democrats for asking for votes from the black community but not doing enough to lift them out of poverty and improve living conditions.
Neither candidate has addressed civil liberties questions raised by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden's revelations that the NSA engages in wide scale spying not only on foreigners but also US allies abroad as well as US citizens and residents. Trump has called for expanding the death penalty to include all killings of police officers.
Clinton also supports the death penalty, but believes it has a place only in a limited number of federal cases. Marijuana is currently classified as a , in the company of other drugs like heroin, LSD, MDMA (ecstasy) and mescaline.
In August 2016, the Obama administration refused to loosen restrictions rejected a petition by two governors and a nurse to reclassify marijuana. i.e., keep marijuana a Schedule 1 drug, and wait and see how the “experiments” in Colorado, Washington and Alaska turn out.
Ban on all executive branch officials lobbying the government for 5 years after they leave government service 5-year ban on lobbying by former members of Congress and their staff expand the definition of lobbyist to include consultants and advisors a lifetime ban against senior executive branch officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government campaign finance reform to prevent registered foreign lobbyists from raising money in American elections. There is no evidence of this actually happening, and it should be noted that before Clinton became Secretary of State, she signed an ethics agreement promising to avoid any conflict of interest between the foundation and her work in the Obama administration.
Clinton supports the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration. She voted for the invasion of Iraq in 2003 Clinton has previously defended torture, although her current position is that she does not support it.
In a July 20 interview, Trump reiterated that in his view the United States should not guarantee automatic assistance to a NATO member in case it is attacked by another nation (usually referring to Russia as the aggressor). This guarantee, according to Trump, should only be for NATO members who “have fulfilled their obligations to us.” Negotiate with allies (e.g., Japan) to pay the United States to maintain a military presence in their region because US presence provides security to these countries.
Other analysts have also criticized Trump's views on Iran as misinformed and stemming from ignorance. However, this claim is false because he is on record for hesitatingly supporting it in September 2002 in an interview with Howard Stern.
However, Trump did express early concerns about the cost and direction of the war a few months after it started. Trump cites this 2004 article indicating his opposition to the war, and Esquire created this counter-narrative to establish the timeline for his support/opposition.
In June, after being criticized by Clinton in a foreign policy speech, Trump denied that he had said he wanted Japan to have nuclear weapons. Clinton herself has touted her role in brokering a cease-fire between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip to end a sustained campaign of violence in 2012.
She has also spoken about how as Secretary of State she rallied U.S. allies around the world to impose sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program in order to put pressure on the Iranian government to agree to a nuclear inspection deal. Turkey is a U.S. ally in the fight against ISIS but the relationship is complicated because of America's support of Kurds.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued several statements urging Erdoan to respect the rule of law. Trump has also said that the U.S. lacked the moral authority to exhort Erdoan and other nations to follow the law, given the civil unrest in America related to the killing of police officers.
I don't think we need to have a pipeline bringing very dirty oil, exploiting the tar sands in western Canada, across our border. The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.
Clinton has said that climate change is real, a view that a vast majority of scientists hold. Clinton has vowed to make large investments in clean energy, with a goal of having 500 million solar panels in the nation by 2020.
Many political analysts opined that Clinton won the debate; she seemed better prepared with more detailed policy answers. He pushed Mr Trump on the Iraq War and brought up his comment about her “look”, which led to the extended discussion of presidential temperament and judgement.
Some of it was Mr Trump's missteps and meandering; the salesman's failure to move his product. Trump criticized Clinton on trade deals like NAFTA and TPP, deleting her emails, letting ISIS grow during her tenure as Secretary of State.
Clinton hit Trump hard on not releasing his tax returns, alleging that he is trying to hide something. She also criticized him for questioning Obama's citizenship and not paying federal income taxes, which he claimed was a smart thing to do.
Trump said that if he became president, he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton over the email scandal. Criticizing Clinton for her “basket of deplorable” comment, Trump said she has “tremendous hate in her heart”.
Clinton apologized for the comment, and said: “My argument is not with his supporters, it's with him, about the hateful and divisive campaign he has run.” Trump disagreed with his VP nominee Mike Pence about bombing Syrian military bases.
Clinton accused Russia of trying to interfere in the election by hacking the DNC and her campaign. He also attacked Clinton for not changing the tax laws when she was in government, which allowed people like him to take advantage of such loopholes.
Clinton talked about the kinds of issues that were important to her, including upholding LGBTQ rights and Roe v. Wade. She defended voting against a ban on late-term abortions saying the proposed bill did not have a provision that would protect the life and health of the mother.
Clinton said she supports the Second Amendment and people's right to bear arms but that it's possible to protect those rights granted by the Second Amendment and still institute some regulations like background checks for all gun sales, including online and gun shows. On the economy, Trump proposed tax cuts and “better” trade deals to stem the outflow of jobs to lower wage countries.
He contended his plan would jumpstart growth in the economy, create millions of jobs and grow the pie. Their talking points on the economy were not new or different from this comparison of the economic policies of Trump and Clinton.
The biggest story coming out of the third debate was Trump's refusal to say that he would accept the result of the election if he loses. Trump has claimed repeatedly that the election is “rigged”, citing media bias, the government refusing to prosecute Clinton over her email scandal, and newly released videos alleging voter fraud and the Clinton campaign paying people to incite violence at Trump rallies.
Another memorable moment was when Clinton was asked a question about her comment in a paid speech where she said she prefers “open borders”. In her response she brought up the fact that the speech was obtained through illegal hacking and alleged Russian president Putin was trying to interfere in the election by helping Trump.
Trump astutely noted how Clinton changed the topic from her favoring open borders to Russia and Putin. Hillary Clinton originally had a lead in nationwide opinion polls but Donald Trump has managed to close the gap, especially after sealing the Republican nomination.
It is also different from the other models because it shows a 3-way race and includes libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. The State department and the White House initially blamed the attack on mob fury resulting from a reaction to the YouTube video Innocence of Muslims.
Not only is Clinton blamed for this incorrect initial assessment, she also received flak for the fact that the State department under her leadership denied requests from U.S. security officer Eric Nordstrom for additional security for the mission in Benghazi. The investigation by the FBI concluded that Clinton was “extremely careless” in handling her email system but recommended that no charges be filed against her.
In a move widely criticized by Republicans, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced that the Department of Justice would file no charges and not prosecute Clinton even though she broke the law. 11 days before the election FBI director James Coma, who had earlier recommended that Clinton not be indicted, informed Congress that new emails that were pertinent to the Clinton email investigation were discovered in a separate investigation.
Following the release of this tape, Trump lost the support of a number of prominent Republicans, including John McCain and Paul Ryan. Miss Washington 2013, Cassandra Sapeles, has alleged Trump had “continually grabbed my ass and invited me to his hotel room”.
Racism allegations Trump has been labeled racist for and for proposing a ban on allowing non-citizen Muslims to enter the country. However, when George Stephanopoulos asked Trump to respond to the charge during a TV interview, Trump made a remark about kHz Khan's wife Ghana who was on stage during Khan's speech but did not speak: “If you look at his wife, she was standing there.
Trump's remark received widespread condemnation not just from Democrats but also from prominent Republicans like Paul Ryan and John McCain, both of whom have had a tenuous relationship with the GOP nominee. While it was not an accredited college or university, the company offered training courses in real estate, asset management, entrepreneurship, and wealth creation.
While it is no longer operational, Trump University and Donald Trump himself are embroiled in multiple lawsuits from past students who allege that the business was a scam that made false claims. Critics have speculated myriad reasons for this, ranging from a lack of charitable contributions, to the fact that his income and wealth may be far lower than he claims, to allegations it might reveal links with Russian oligarchs.
In October 2016, The New York Times reported that Trump had claimed a loss of close to $1 billion in 1995 and speculated that this would allow him to carry forward his loss and avoid paying income tax for as long as 18 years. The Trump campaign has neither confirmed nor denied the accuracy of this reporting but did say that carrying forward business losses is not only legal but a smart thing to do.
Russia and Putin In a remark about Clinton's email scandal, Trump said at a rally: Russia has also helped Assad by launching air strikes against ISIS in the Middle East.
While ISIS is a common enemy for both Russia and the U.S., other considerations have prevented a strong partnership between the two superpowers. Clinton's physician released this report proclaiming her to be in good health overall, while noting a history of deep vein thrombosis.
The letter notes that Clinton does not smoke nor take illicit drugs; she drinks alcohol occasionally. On September 11, Clinton wobbled and almost fainted at the 9/11 memorial service in New York; it was reported that she has pneumonia, a lung infection that can be bacterial (in roughly two-thirds of cases) or viral.
Clinton ’s doctor released a statement saying she was prescribed antibiotics and advised to rest but did not identify the type of pneumonia (viral or bacterial) she has. Antibiotics do not cure viral pneumonia but are often prescribed to prevent the spreading of the infection.
Trump's physician has also released a letter about his health but it has become controversial because it uses exaggerated language, and he claims to have written it in only five minutes. The letter declares Trump to be in excellent health, noting he does not smoke or drink alcohol.
Trump won in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
