I'll do my best, but these are big questions with long, long histories.
Hillary Clinton's been on the national political scene for decades, and she's been fairly involved: First Lady, Senator from New York, Secretary of
State. This is in addition to her involvement with the Clinton Foundation, which her husband founded when he left the White House.
Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State is the source of most of the contention. Her involvement in the ongoing wars across the Middle East in
particular. Some people allege that she worked with Obama to provide arms for various factions that have now turned against us. Others say that her
State Department worked to uphold various despotic regimes around the world. This is before we get into the issue of her private email server. She has
been accused of mishandling classified information, though the DOJ has declined to press charges. Otherwise, her politics are pretty solidly an
extension of the DNC's party line.
Trump is even more complicated. He has no political background and has never held elected office. His business past his troubled, but politically he
was pretty consistently left-leaning before he decided to run for the GOP ticket. Now he's all over the place, changing his positions to suit the
audience in front of him. That having been said, his campaign has connected with a lot of working people via its promises of internal economic
development, trade deal that would keep jobs at home, universal health care, and a few other things. Will he pursue that as president? We don't know
