The first Republican debate occurred in August. There were ten candidates participating in this debate. The three top candidates in the debate were Donald Trump, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. In my opinion, I think that Donald Trump was the winner. In this essay, I will briefly talk about these candidates.
The first candidate is Donald Trump. Trump is the president of Trump Organization. He has never been elected into office. In the beginning of the debate, Trump did not accept the pledge that he won’t run as an Independent candidate if he did not will the Republican. While the audience booed, I think there are people who actually liked that he was honest. Donald Trump’s main point in the debate was that he wants a huge wall with a little door built on the border between Mexico and the United States. He also wants Mexico to pay for said door. Trump had the most airtime during this debate. Donald Trump is also a misogynist. Megyn Kelly called him out on the way he talks about women on social media. He tried to downplay it saying that he was only talking about Rosie O’Donnell. I believe that conservatives love this type of attitude which is why he won and continues to win these debates.
The next top candidate is Jeb Bush. Bush was the former governor of Florida. He only served as senator for 8 years. Jeb Bush’s main point in the debate was for a more humane form of immigration and a better way to control the border. He is also pro-life as long as the mother’s health is not in question. I think that Jeb plays is safe and agrees with what the Republicans want and like to hear. Going back to the immigration issue, his wife is Mexican and he says that she agrees with him about creating a border between Mexico and the United States. Jeb Bush was the second candidate to have the most airtime.
The last candidate that I thought was in the top three is Marco Rubio. Rubio is the U.S. Senator of Florida. He has served as senator for 15...
