The third and final debate of the 2016 Presidential Election was perhaps Donald Trump’s best performance and Hillary Clinton’s worst performance.
Chris Wallace gave good and fair treatment of hard questions for both candidates. Unlike the first two, which were biased against Trump and favored Hillary Clinton.
In the hour and half debate, the three issues were key to Christians.
- The Supreme Court. The first question asked is the question Christians must ask themselves: “Who will the next President of the United Sates appoint the US Supreme Court?” Hillary Clinton’s answer was stunning. She said she would only appoint those who would be pro-abortion and keep the flawed law Roe v. Wade, judges who would enshrine homosexual marriage as law.
Donald TRUMP said he would appoint conservative judges who would uphold the Second Amendment and protect life. They would interpret the constitution the way the Founders intended it, and not legislate from the bench.
- Donald Trump said that his conservative, pro-life judges would overturn Roe v. Wade so the issue could be deicide by the states, and he supporters every effort to stop the barbaric killing of babies in the last trimester, partial birth abortion. In fact, he described the gruesome process in detail on national TV.
Hillary Clinton said she would support abortion rights, support Planned Parenthood, and that she believes the fetus has no constitutional rights. Christ Wallace pointed out that she voted against a ban on partial birth abortion as US Senator from New York. At nine months or later, she would support ripping the baby out of the womb of the mot her.
- As Christ Wallace suggested, Hillary Clinton will follow the policies of President Obama and his stimulus program. Wallace asked that since the program produce less than 2% growth, why bother doing the same thing? Hillary Clinton’s answer was that more money, and spending would turn the economy around.
Donald Trump took issue with Clinton’s plan. That only way to create jobs, grow wages, and get American moving again would be to reduce taxes and regulations so that businesses could grow and expand, include getting rid of Obamacare, which have kept our economy in the lowest growth rate since the 1940s.
