Trump about emploment / jobs

‘ have a different vision for the employment ‘ stand up against countries who cheat

Clinton ” going to work with both parties for the first 100 days of her mandate to pass the biggest investment in good paying jobs since WW2 .

Issue – terrorism

Trump “C’s legacy is death / terrorism / destruction / weakness”

Clinton – he says he knows more abt ISIS than the generals, but in fact he doesn’t.


Trump ” stop the gangs / drugs / violence illegal immigrants / great border wall /

Clinton ” self-defeating / inhumane to kick hard-working immigrants out ”

React / discuss.





Julian / Tom / Romain / Morgane

We disagree with Trump saying / when he claims Clinton’s legacy is ‘death…’ because he criticizes her but he doesn’t mention any solution. We agree with Clinton saying she wants to welcome / embrace  immigrants.

Etienne & Alexandre

It reminds us of the Berlin Wall and the wall between Bangladesh and Burma.

Sofiane / Lois / Daniel

We disagree with Trump about the building the wall as it would increase racial / ethnic tensions.

Sarah / NIcolas / Laura

We disagree about this whole debate, it feels absurd and ridiculous.

Sylvain & Jerry We disagree with what T say about building a wall between the USA and Mexico.

I agree with Clinton saying it would be inhumane to kick immigrants out”.
