It’s President Obama’s final year in office, and after having 2 consecutive terms America, he’s saying farewell as the 44th president of the Unites States. People are having mixed emotions about Obama leaving office, some are sad to see him go, while others are quite ready for change and to see which of the candidates running will become the next President. Some fear that the new candidates won’t help the country, but maybe even hurt it more, but the anxiety is the same for everyone as they wait to see who is going to win.
Denzel Hanes (17’) states “I feel that Obama is trying to tie up the loose ends because he knows that his time in office is almost over. He is getting the country prepared for the next president.” Hanes feels that Obama did a fantastic job as president because he kept the country afloat even though we are in trillions of dollars of debt [also] he took down the largest terrorist organization in the world and he brought home soldiers. Hanes believes that Hilary Clinton is most likely to become the next president of the United States. And said that she is the most well known out of the candidates and she has the most political experience out of all of the candidates.
Devontae Harrison (18’) fears what this country is going to become after President Obama leaves. Harrison also stated “ I feel that Obama has done a wonderful job as president; I feel he has done everything he could to help this country. A lot of people want to blame him for the debt that we are in but what people fail to realize is that this country was in debt when Ronald Reagan was in office.” Harrison thinks that based on media and statistics that Donald Trump will be in office even though he doesn’t agree with him being in office personally, he thinks that Trump is going to win.
Carley Goff (18′) said, “Yes I’m glad he is out of office.” Goff feels that Obama didn’t do a good job as President and she doesn’t have a guess as to who will become the next President.
It’s pretty clear that people have different opinions about President Obama and how he ran this country while he was in office. Now the focus is on who is going to become the next President of the United States and it seems that Donald Trump is moving higher up the ladder but will he win? I guess we will just have to wait and see.
