The 2016 U.S presidential Election was one of the most controversial elections in American history. The election was criticized for massive voter fraud and election rigging. 

The centerpiece of the Election was the growing threat of ISIS. Many felt that the President had been openly supporting terrorism in the Middle East.

With a New Cold War becoming a reality, many candidates saw themselves promising a Strong Nuclear Deterrence. Russia had begun building up its nuclear arsenal and its military. Major Gains were also made in Ukraine, half of the country had been annexed by Russia near the end of 2015. 


The first candidates to declare their desire to run on each side were Hilary Clinton and Ted Cruz. Jeb Bush would announce his decision to run in June of 2015, and immediately became the favorite to score the GOP nomination. 

Other Candidates to express their desire to run included Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, John Kerry, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Andrew Cuomo, George Pataki, Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, and Rudy Guilani. 


Bernie Sanders, a Independent Senator from Vermont who caucused with the Democrats, became a popular figure amongst millennials and Hardcore Democrats. Sanders ran a campaign for Democratic Socialism, an image that did not sit well with his colleagues. Sanders was forced out of the race and endorsed Hilary Clinton.


Election Day

On November 8, 2016, millions would vote in a critical election determining America's fate. Hilary Clinton had been leading the exit polls, with Trump in a close second. When the polls closed she was leading by about 10% and had already carried two states.

Trump would win the popular vote, but miscounted ballot boxes and a long supreme court case lead to Hilary Clinton taking the office.
