The American President

by George Liu

The American presidential election1 was in November this year. There were two candidates2: Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Mr. Trump was the winner.

Many people liked Hillary Clinton because she is a woman. She is also experienced3 in politics4.

Mrs. Clinton has been a politician5 since 2001, working with President Bush and President Obama.

Many other people liked Donald Trump because he is a businessman6. He is different from most politicians.

Mr. Trump is best known for his real estate7 business and the Miss Universe beauty pageants8.

Many people say that the USA needs to change so that candidates and the government9 are more like the people voting10.

Maybe that is why Mr. Trump won the election.
