Debate 1

Which Donald Trump will show up?

Can Clinton heed Obama's advice to "be yourself"

He may be the most important person for the first Debate, who is Lester Holt?

For my friends and family in the states I had an advantage for the debate, you guys where getting ready to go to bed so you had to stay up, and I had to wake up at 3 o'clock in the morning my time. Well round one is over. Who was the winner?  
If I was looking for someone to sale my apartments or help me get out of paying taxes because I don't like the way the government is spending my money I would select Donald.  
If I was looking for someone that was talking about the needs for Americans in America and the respect they should have for the other 95% of the planate I would select Hillary.
So you see it depends on what you are looking for.  If I understand Donald he was trying to pass the message that with him everyone would become rich, and not pay taxes. I love that!!!
Enough joking around. Here are my views on the debate by candidate and a special comment on the narrateur Lester


She came thru very good, she had prepared for the debate but:
I had the feeling that she was a little aggressive toward Donald, but I am sure it is because no one know which Donald would show up, I would say she was a little on the defensive. She explained about the key issues that were brought forth. Her reply about the present government being responsible for ISIS: As she explained the situation in Iraq was due to the comment that George Bush Jr. had left behind in 2008, the Obama administration respected that comment and at the end of the comment Iraq requested the departure of the military.

Now to get down to the things most working Americans are worried about, it isn't "Make America Great Again" it is to give all American the same chance in this already great America. That is equal rights for everyone. What will work best for the American public, will it be
Top-down or Bottom-up management? How do we keep companies that their main objective is to make money (if I remenber Donald is a good student)? Do we think that if we heavily tax imports we have a solution? A lots of questions without any sure reponse.
The question on "How do you heal the Racial divide in the United States" When you are respect because it is the law, it isn't you it is the law. I am sure that Martin Luther King wanted the civil rights law to be a transit thing, and that in time people would respect each other without the need of a law.
Law and respect between law enforcement and the citizens, gun laws, the justice system and the private prisons: 

Building trust between police and community will be a big job, but if we want to stop the fear and hate that is bulding up all over America cities it has to be done. A translation of an article I wrote after the attack in Nice France.  
Can we judge others   
Hillary said "I believe weapons of war have no place on our streets" Donald and Hillary do agree on what gun control advocates have called a “no fly, no buy” policy to restrict individuals on the airline terrorist watch list from being able to purchase guns. It is hard for me to understand the need for guns.  I have never heard of a citizen stopping a terrorist attack with his gun, but I have heard of members of
law enforcement have, maybe it is part of their job to protecting the community.
The nation’s criminal justice system is broken. People of color, particularly African Americans and Latinos, are unfairly targeted by the police and face harsher prison sentences (the sentence is give by the justic system) than their white counterparts. As I said above when we are excepted because it is the law it is the law that is respected.  We have given legal rights for almost everyone to be except for who are what they are. It is the LAW. This can be related to race, sexual orientation, religious believes, etc.. Maybe justice takes advantage of the legal authorized persons to "get at them".

Hillary said we need to close all private prisons that includes state prisons, the programmed closing of private prisons in the US is only for federal Prisons. Like many things in the USA prisons have became a money making thing with too often no respect of human rights.
The private prisons
Health and respect for he working class is an important thing.
Last but not less, the health program (please in respect don't call it the "Obamacare") indirectly this is a way to accuse someone directly for the program, and especially when we want to attack the program. I live in a country where health is a right; you cannot be refused medical care in France. Many come to France because of that legal right.


He also came thru fairly good, He had prepared himself for the debate but:
I hope he was only drinking water during the debate. He also seemed to have a problem with his mircrophone.

As I said Donald knows all the short cuts to become rich, but I had the feeling it is at any cost.
Just a few of his remarks during the debate that should confirmed his feeling about money and the society.

"I opened a club in Florida in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world and there is no decimation I except Afro American, Muslims, anybody".  WHAT HE ACCEPTS IS THERE MONEY, HE WILL ACCEPT ANYONE'S MONEY.

"Charlotte, the city I love the city, I have investments there"

"I have property in Chicago its terrible what's going on in Chicago"

The questions about his multiple bankrupts: "I take advantage of the laws of the nations" He said you should change the laws. (I wonder if he had the position of president would he make laws to advance him and his empire).

He was question about a club house and the architect that he engage and after refused to pay. "Maybe I wasn't satisfied with his work".

Well back to the debate :

Achieving prosperity

How to keep countries from stealing are companies by "reducing taxes for companies ".
Hillary called it "Trumped-up trickle down".
Anyone that understands Donald's plan knows that he will be starving Main Street to feed Wall Street". Be honest most bonuses give to management, normally means less salaries for the working class be it blue collar or white collar workers.
Donald, if companies leave the USA, I will "tax them for products they want to import". How will he create trade agreements "on a case by case decision"? Will he be the one to decide what amount to pay? If so I hope he want do any favors for his companies.
When Hillary said that Donald said that "climate change" was a "hoax invented by the Chinese" he said that was untrue but: In November 2012 Donald tweet stating that "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."
Donald to Hillary, you have been fighting ISIS all your entire adult life" again proof he will say anything.

Clinton suggested Donald has not released his tax returns because he doesn’t want Americans to know he didn’t pay federal income taxes.

Donald:  “That makes me smart,”.

Hillary: Well, let's stop for a second and remember where we were eight years ago. We had the worst financial crisis, the Great Recession, the worst since the 1930s. That was in large part because of tax policies that slashed taxes on the wealthy, failed to invest in the middle class, took their eyes off of Wall Street, and created a perfect storm.

In fact, Donald was one of the people who rooted for the housing crisis. He said, back in 2006, "Gee, I hope it does collapse, because then I can go in and buy some and make some money." Well, it did collapse.  
Donald: That's called business, by the way.

America's direction

On how do you heal the racial divide in the United States:

Trump:  We need "law and order African-Americans, Hispanics, are living in hell because it's so dangerous. You walk down the street, you get shot in Chicago almost 4000 people  have been killed since Obama is President in his own home town".

Donald  went to Detroit to visit and talk to tanned Americans (( so he knows those people. Donald talked about the Democratic Party taking advantage of tanned Americans (, this is true but everyone takes advantage of people that due to the lack of education, jobs, one parent homes with no income other than social. Check out the number of people in those communities that are considered as Section 8 - Mental Health persons  . 


His reply for his housing racial discrimination suit in 1973 "I settled that law suit with no admission" that’s normal just check out the Racial Discrimination Act of 1975.
But he was proud to say: "I opened a club in Florida in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world and there is no decimation I except Afro American, Muslims, anybody".  WHAT HE ACCEPTS IS THERE MONEY, HE WILL ACCEPT ANYONE'S MONEY

securing America


Hillary: The other day, I saw Donald saying that there were some Iranian sailors on a ship in the waters off of Iran, and they were taunting American sailors who were on a nearby ship. He said, you know, if they taunted our sailors, I'd blow them out of the water and start another war. That's not good judgment.

Donald: TRUMP: That would not start a war.

Lester: Why is your judgment -- why is your judgment any different than Mrs. Clinton's judgment?
Donald: Well, I have much better judgment than she does. There's no question about that. I also have a much better temperament than she has, you know?


Finally, his job wasn't too difficult there was no name calling both side seemed to respect a certain protocol.
That wasn't normally for Donald, but also it was the first time he was in a head-on presidential debate.
It was hard for him to finish the six segments programmed because often Hillary and Donald wouldn't let him go to the next segment.
They hadn't finished with the last segment and no question of going on.
His question to Donald about creating 25 million jobs and you've promised to bring back millions of jobs for Americans. Donald never answered.  
Your question about him releasing his tax returns. If I understand we will see it once his routine audit is finished, but no date.
Hillary:   $4 billion tax benefit for your family. And when you look at what you are proposing..
Donald : How much? How much for my family?
Donald: Lester, how much? Lester never answered the question.
