A lot can be said about the Clinton's over the years. Their interesting marriage, the constant lies, evident deceit to gain political power and most recently, Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonTrump, Biden set for tight battle in Florida We need to be 'One America,' the polling says — and the politicians should listen Poll shows Biden with 6-point edge on Trump in Florida MORE's pay for play during her tenure as secretary of state. 

Throughout this presidential contest, Hillary Clinton's biggest hurdle has been trust, to put it simply, the American do not trust her and a mere glance of recent political revelations are exactly why. 


The 2016 political contest has been toxic, to say the least, and arguably has caused further division and strife. It has forced each of us to face and have many tough conversations about race and justice, the trade and the economy and what we need in the next leader. Certainly, it is difficult for anyone to support and elect a person who they don't trust. 

In Hillary's case, a lot of people are questioning whether or not they can trust her and whether or not she will put the interest of the American people before herself. None of us have the answers to that question, but it's a hurdle that she has to overcome if she wants people to trust her. Sure, Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpCDC updates website to remove dosage guidance on drug touted by Trump Trump says he'd like economy to reopen 'with a big bang' but acknowledges it may be limited Graham backs Trump, vows no money for WHO in next funding bill MORE may be brash and many of his statements may be hard to swallow, but one thing we are certain of and that is unquestionable loyalty and love for America. 

The bottom line is that we must get serious about this election and elect someone who will always put the interest of America first. When asked: "what is the first quality they look for in a leader," an overwhelming majority of people said, "trust" and that is where Hillary Clinton falls short.
