The 2016 Presidential election season in the United States has generated far-reaching criticisms across the globe between both major party candidates, billionaire and reality-tv star, Donald J. Trump, and former first lady and Secretary of State, Hillary R. Clinton. Donald J. Trump has made our society step back and reexamine our political culture and election trends as he rapidly gained - and sustained - momentum in this year's presidential cycle. In a new age of campaigning where vulgarities and bad mouthing are tossed around as often as - arguably, more than- statistics and policy ideas, things often become heated at political events as large numbers of both supporters and protestors of the candidates and their ideas are making their voices heard this cycle.
