Today is the day we can finally show the world that Love Trumps Hate. Democrats are fighting to move our country forward—and voting for Democrats means voting for an America that is hopeful and inclusive. Take a look at the contrasting visions laid out during the last day of this election– where Hillary Clinton offered a positive vision for a world that is stronger together, Donald Trump spewed harmful rhetoric that tears our nation apart. In supporting Hillary Clinton, Americans are choosing hope over fear, unity over division, and a brighter future for all Americans.
Here’s what people are saying about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s closing arguments to the American people:
Today Morning Joe showed that the contrast between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could not be more clear:
Mr. Trump asked a country polarized over his personality and tactics to embrace his plan to thoroughly shake up Washington. “I am asking for the votes of all Americans, Democrats, Republicans, independents,” Mr. Trump said, “who are so desperately in need of change.”
The contrasts between the candidates and their messages were on vivid display in the campaign’s last full day. As she embarked on a four-state tour,Mrs. Clinton gave a sunny and optimistic summation of her candidacy for the White House. “Tomorrow, you can vote for a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted America,”she told a crowd in Pittsburgh.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton made their final pitches to an anxious nation Monday, withClinton seeking to strike a conciliatory, positive tone — and Trump, the underdog, warning of “disaster” if he loses.
A black man, standing behind the seal of the President of the United States, passed the torch of the world’s longest lasting democracy to a woman on the eve of an election that polls say she is favored to win… “Our core values have been tested in this election,” she continued. “The real question for us is what kind of question we want to be and what kind of future we want to build for our children.”
Washington Post: The many problems with Donald Trump’s closing argument
Now, to me, the ad is disturbing because Trump’s words are largely lifted from one of Trump’s crazier speeches of this cycle, one that BuzzFeed’sRosie Gray characterized as “full Breitbart.” Over the weekend Josh Marshall noted that the ad was “packed with anti-Semitic dog whistles, anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Semitic vocabulary.”
In a year filled with cringe-worthy moments, among the most memorable came just a few weeks ago, when Donald Trump traveled to West Palm Beach to share the latest in a series of conspiracy theories…NBC News reported over the weekend that the Anti-Defamation League, which is non-partisan, accused the Trump campaign of “conjuring painful stereotypes and baseless conspiracy theories” in its closing ad.
Donald Trump called the U.S. “the laughingstock of the world” on Monday as he bemoaned what he called a “rigged” political system on the eve of the presidential election.
