The candidates of the next presidential elections of the United States seem to have been decided: Donald Trump, a self-made billionaire, in the best American tradition, for the Conservatives, Hillary Clinton, a woman, for the first time in history, a law and politics expert, for Democrats. The latter outdid Bernie Sanders in South Carolina. Next Tuesday March 1, aka the “Super Tuesday”, when 11 American states are going to vote. The next vote will take place in Florida, but the results that have been already obtained hint that Clinton may get the nomination for the White House quickly and easily.
Hillary has won with 84 percent of the votes in an African-American majority State. Her results are higher than those obtained by Obama in 2008 (78 percent). Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, is supported also by people who had elected the first black US president. The election of the first woman to lead the US – hence, in a way, even of the world – might have an important role.
“From today, the campaign moves onto a national level,” Hillary said on the electoral stage, after having thanked her supporters. Bill was at her side. “Not building walls, we must break down barriers, tear all of them down,” Clinton said, with a clear reference to the statements on the wall that Trump wants to build on the border with Mexico, in case he is elected. Also Pope Francis expressed his disapproval on those statements on his way back from Central America, during an interview with the journalists.
Fight against pharmaceutical lobbies, health care, higher wages, opposition to the greed of the Wall Street finance, and justice reforms are the strong points of Clinton’s plan.
Senator of Vermont has congratulated with the former Secretary of State, but he did not give up: “The campaign has just beginning,” he said. “Perhaps it is going to be a challenge between me and Hillary,” Trump.
