who was for socialism. It is evidenced that none of the parties strongly defended either of the

supposed to be a seasoned politician. It does also come with the dawn of the writer that the writer
is not astonished by the absence of sincerity in Clinton according to (National Review Online,
2016). The lack of sincerity is shown by the way she laughed over the course of the interview;
she remained hysterical.
The writer also raises questions about the high levels of corruption that Clinton may have
observed in her full glare. The writer starts off by mentioning the Clinton foundation that the
writer terms as giant access-selling enterprise that is carrying out operations in the name of
charity organization. The writer also mentions about the role of the husband in the run to
presidency. The writer equally mentions the infamous scandal that the husband was involved. It
is also evidenced that the Clinton’s have a special connection to the billionaires on Wall Street.
The group of billionaires has been the main concern by the majority of residents in U.S. The
system need to be changed. The change shall make it possible or the realization of high levels of
economic performance within the U.S. The emails allegedly send by Clinton were later supposed
to be clarified by her as she claimed during the debate.
