The right president for our daughters

Recently, I was fortunate enough to witness a few of Hillary Clinton’s political advertisements that sparked an important fire under me – why Hillary Clinton is the right President for our daughters.

There were a few political advertisements of Clinton’s that caught my attention; however, the advertisement that truly drew me in was the video displayed on the front of her website, “Our daughters deserve better.”

This video was icing on the cake as to why she is the right President for our current and future women of this country and not Donald Trump.

It’s no surprise Donald Trump has nothing on his website about women’s rights.

I mean, he is the Republican candidate after all, but to me, that’s no excuse.

What’s even less of an excuse is the way Trump talks about women.

From his comments about Fox News commentator, Megyn Kelly, to his complete disregard of Rosie O’Donnell, Trump lacks any ounce of respect toward women.

Not only does Trump rip on female celebrities, he is downright disrespectful toward women in our military.

I don’t know about you, but if I were running for President, I would not insult the men and women who fight for their lives to keep us safe.

A tweet from Trump’s account about how women in the military should basically just accept the fact that they are prone to sexual assault reads: “26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?” 6:04 PM – 7 May 2013.

I stand by Clinton when her political advertisements claim ‘our daughters deserve better.’

I do not believe that a man who was recently caught on tape by The Washington Post “bragging in vulgar terms about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women during a 2005 conversation, saying, “when you’re a star, they let you do it,’” (as cited by Fahrenthold, 2016) deserves to be our country’s president.

Women deserve better, and that is why I believe Clinton is better suited to be our president.

During a campaign rally, Trump was quoted saying, “If Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get even 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she’s got going is the woman’s card.”

Clinton fought back at a later campaign rally saying, “Mr. Trump accused me of playing the ‘woman card.’ If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the ‘woman card,’ then deal me in.”

Clinton is not only a woman running for president, she’s a woman fighting for other women so women can build a better future.

On Clinton’s website, she has an entire page dedicated to women’s rights and opportunities.

These types of issues are extremely important in 2016.

Women are on the verge of breaking the glass ceiling in the workplace, taking a stand on their reproductive rights and moving forward as people.

Clinton has dedicated the majority of her life fighting for women to have the same freedoms as men.

Being a woman and running for president is a sure sign that women are at the threshold of achieving their rights, freedoms and opportunities in the United States.

This country is desperately in need of an opportunist like Hillary Clinton. Women need their voices to be heard, be respected and be treated equally.

Clinton is the right candidate to accomplish these tasks.

Trump does not have a plan in place for helping move women forward.

In fact, Trump hinders opportunities for women with his disrespectful display of words.

Clinton is working for the betterment of women now and for our future daughters.
