“I still don’t agree with how it all went down. I still don’t agree with his policies that have been put in place are benefiting anyone. Before, I didn’t think either candidate was all that great, but I think he’s the worst of the two evils, so I’m not too pleased, and I don’t think he’s being effective,”

“I’m still not a huge fan of our president today, as I was not beforehand. I just do not think he is a great person and a great leader of this country. I mean, I’m not too involved with politics, but I know he is someone I do not want leading this country, and his morals don’t align with mine. I’m not particularly liberal or leftist, but I don’t align with his morals, his values and what he is doing with this country,”

“I just don’t think our president is fit for the job, personally. He isn’t a good role model and our country hasn’t improved whatsoever, and it’s going downhill. The way he acts, the way he speaks, it’s immature and childish and unpresidential.”

“My opinions on him haven’t changed. It’s just the way he’s been handling things like the situation in Puerto Rico. It’s an American territory;  they’re a part of our country, you should take care of them like you take care of us,”
