RAINBOW PUSH COALITION HOSTS PRESUMPTIVE NOMINEE HILLARY CLINTON
Chicago, Illinois- On Monday, June 27th, the Hyatt Regency hosted a conference that held the biggest names in the game such as Governor Patt Quinn, Robin Robinson, Jesse L. Jackson, and of course Hillary Clinton. The chatter of the excited attendees was silenced by a powerful prayer from Reverend Jesse Jackson’s wife. Her choice of words lifted the spirits and blessed the food- which happened to be a selection of either salmon or chicken with a side of salad.
The words of Reverend Jackson echoed in the room, “diversity, change, that is what we are about. Hillary will be the first to help us achieve that.” The room exploded into a round of applause as the audience patiently waited for Hillary Clinton. Prior to the Secretary of State’s entrance, there were a range of guest speakers whom one of which stated, “we need a president that breaks down barriers, not builds walls “-an obvious reference to Republican Nominee Donald Trump.
It is known that the two presidential candidates have been viciously fighting for a chance at landing a job as the commander in chief at the White House by focusing on personal attacks. When Clinton finally got a chance to speak at the Rainbow PUSH coalition luncheon this week she said, “even if I weren’t running for President, I wouldn’t vote for Trump.” Recently, a petition has been made online by Clinton on Facebook that acquires signatures to “stop Trump”.
Clinton’s speech at the Rainbow PUSH coalition event honored Obama’s presidency. She began by informing attendees the amount of jobs he had created since he took office. She made it clear that the USA had been in a terrible recession and that Obama did the most he could, if not better, to bring the country stability. She plans to continue the fight for equality, the social welfare of constituents “not just the ones in the top” and “earn the trust” of the people.
Helen Crawley, the head of the committee that promoted the luncheon said, “It was a wonderful opportunity to bring the community together to hear Hillary’s message. I thought she did a great job of not campaigning but sharing her heart.” When asked about Trump she responded, “I don’t know why anyone would vote for him.”
Although the event was a success, with outstanding individuals crowding the room and heartfelt messages, the outcome of the winner of this presidential election is still unclear. Many times, Trump has been doubted and yet still has managed to climb to the top. Therefore, it is too early to tell who will be the next person to lead our country. So come November will it be a Clinton full of secrets or will it be another colored person in the White House with big hair and an adorable hue of orange? Only time will tell.
