Two Untrustworthy Candidates
By Donald Moskowitz
October 18, 2016
We know that many politicians make promises they cannot keep and they typically use manipulative and ambiguous language to hide their true ideas and feelings. They hope the public will forget their false statements.
However, Trump and Clinton might have the record for the most lies conveyed to the public during the campaign for President.
James Green in a letter in the Londonderry NH Times referenced the fact checking website Politifact and exposed the false statements by the Presidential candidates. Approximately 29% of Clinton’s statements were either mostly false, false or pants on fire. Trump fared even worse. Approximately 71% of his statements were either mostly false, false or pants on fire.
Trump cannot be trusted when he said he will bring jobs back to America. He has outsourced jobs to China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Mexico. He employs many foreign workers.
Unfortunately, Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for President, has made two significant gaffes in recent interviews, and he appears to lack knowledge of world affairs.
We can’t trust Clinton or Trump to tell the truth. I am writing in myself for President.
