with karen on the line for clinton.s of mrs. karen, go ahead, your turn. hear : hi, yeah, i didn't him one time say how he's all the on solving problems in the world when he has no diplomatic experience. experience, other than being sued, you know, and through bankruptcies. so he was against the war. a lot of us. why didn't his opinion even a nt when he wasn't ever public servant, other than serving himself, and he still how.n't say but he's saying things that are impossible. going to stop these lone-wolf terrorists in every country on the face of the earth? named germany. he named france. how's he going to do that when that he doesn't want to do nation-building, and he doesn't want to have war? how do you -- and he's obviously not a diplomat of any kind.
so -- and also, when did we win the cold war? not mistaken, china is our biggest trading partner and communist ll a country and so is north korea. so i just think he's really good spouting off, and he's a classic propagandaist, and you obviously didn't write getting h, as he's coached by somebody who's telling him not to raise his looking at the teleprompters. but he's still using words like "vicious" and at the same time claiming he's viivpassivist.pass also, i'd like to say if he's so religious practices that end up in violence against omen, we have plenty of violence against women in our own country that we can work on. domestic violence every
is wed part of the reason have too many guns out there. host: karen, covered a lot of there. we're going to move on. thank you for your call. plainfield, new jersey, calling on the trump supporter line. hi, carolyn, your turn. are you there? caller: it's carol. host: oh, hi, carol. welcome to c-span. go ahead. caller: i'm in new jersey. hi, how are you. host: good. for trump. people -- i feel as mericans speaking for trump, he's a businessman. he did go bankrupt, but you're taking a chance on business. chances that you'll go bankrupt and i don't like the ay the social media twists everything around he says. think he has good ideas and a teleprompter? well, hillary clinton uses a teleprompter. has been in politics 30
years and hasn't done anything in her career and she's always used teleprompters. starting out. he's not the pol tikzitition. businessman. -- not the politician. businessman. the one who was a movie star, and he became governor. he had no experience. we y he's better than what have now. give him a chance. don't like him in four years? host: breaking up a little bit. but thank you for the call. to farrah in go california. you can see the way we've clintonup our lines for voters, trump vote ers and those f you who are a third-party voter for libertarian party or the green party and the line.ided it's farrah on the line for hillary supporters. welcome to rrah, c-span. what do you think?
fa-rah. it's host: go ahead. caller: this is what i think. hillary couldn't have a long, long track record of working with our country as secretary of and all the things she's does. she was even the first lady before. politics.ws donald trump to me is an entertainer and he's a and not a successful businessman. everybody keeps saying this stuff about success. but anybody can get money from their father to get started out, million, 200, whatever it was, and he always says he's a self-made millionaire, which is not true, and also, his business ractices, a lot of them have not worked, like trump university. there's a lot of lawsuits him.nst and then just like the casino in city, he faltered on that and people lost their were doing ho business with trump.
trump is not a politician. a lot of people, oh, he's not a politician, oh, he can do this stuff. he's not a politician and that's the major reason why: he doesn't know the issues. to say, okay, we're going to get rid of isis but he can't tell us how he would do that. says he wants to create more jobs. he can't really tell us how he's do that. when he's being pressed in a lot of situations, he says these up gs but cannot back them with nofact. like what he says against illary clinton and different politicians as he's been running. host: appreciate the call. we're going to move on. henderson, kentucky, on our line for undecided voters. decided?u're still not caller: no, i'm not. i really am not. lower-class citizen, and all they talk about is the upper class.and that's not even the issue.
whole thing ut the is getting together and save our country. apart.ntry is falling if they can't get together and their butt eads out and do what they're supposed to do, then they need to get off of altogether. one wants to take our rights away. wall.nts to build the one wants to keep this one out. they're not even talking about really matters actually. host: and what matters most to election? , in this caller: what matters most to me in this election is saving our country. host: all right. appreciate the call. we're going to move on. you can see the way we have the up.s divided sharon calling from sugarland, exas, on our line for those that support donald trump. hi, sharon, go ahead. you're on c-span. a trump i, yes, i am
voter, and the reason for that is, first of all, yes, everybody says he's a businessman and that he can't help the country, he can't do anything for the country. well, tell me what hillary has voter, been in senate. tell me what hillary has done office.e's even been in she's done nothing but get americans killed, sent over to benghazi. she lied to the troops, she lied to the people about her e-mails. crooked. she gets her daughter -- her daughter drops out of college she gets her a job making almost $900,000 a year when out there eople suffering for jobs, needs jobs, can't support themselves, have to live on welfare, living in what does she d do? trump's wanting to help people. trump has made millions of and have helped people build businesses. jobs.s given people she has done nothing. she backs up obama, which obama deepering us nothing but in debt in so many ways, and then they want to cut down trump about so many things, but trump
is.a businessman, yes, he but what builds the country is business. is the lds the country people getting jobs, puts roofs the their heads, feeds people, feeds the children. i don't see what hillary has our people most of killed. since this has been going on, who started the isis deal? hillary.bama and but see, the media don't want to tell all that. do is media wants to talk bad about trump, wants to twist his stories. what the listen to good part of him is. look at her family and his family. goes and sleeps around with other women. and that's what we want in the presidency? host: sharon, we're going to move on. we gave you a little bit of time there. we want other calls in. linda from pittsburgh, pennsylvania calling in on the hillary clinton supporters. it's your turn, linda, go ahead. let's try this. linda, there you are. caller: hi, thank you very much.
