The 2017 United States Presidential Inauguration Jan. 20 has some people feeling happy, while others are not.

Although Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, it’s still hard to accept she lost the presidental election.

I believe the popular vote should weightheavier in the presidental decision process because Clinton would have been a better president.

Although the email scandal shook Clinton’s campaign, she was better prepared to be president because of her political knowledge. President Donald Trump, on the other hand, has no political background.

Clinton cares about the middle class. She promised families making less than $125,000 a year, to eliminate tuition for in-state students at public colleges, as stated on her website. This means anyone in the middle, lower middle and poor classes could have received the benefit of a free education.

Clinton wanted to pass a law to help illegal immigrants stay in the country who have been good citizens.

Trump wants to build a wall to stop illegal immigrants from entering the U.S. and return all illegal immigrants back to their native countries. The wall will separate families and leave children without their parents.

Opponents say Trump was the best choice because he will create more jobs. But Clinton has more political experience and has also helped run our country as secretary of state.

The popular vote should have more of an impact on who is elected  president of the United States because that was the people’s vote.
