Exactly on the lines of “Stop Hillary” campaign that the rivals in GOP launched a year ago, Hillary Clinton – the Democratic frontrunner in the upcoming U.S. presidential election – started Saturday her “Stop Trump” drive.
Targeting her opponent Donald Trump – a presumptive GOP nominee – Clinton has suggested four ways that, according to her, can help voters stop Trump from becoming the U.S. President.
Among other suggestions, the article on Clinton’s website suggests to Stop Trump Fund.
According to Clinton, the Fund was created to make sure Trump can never use the power of the presidency to “deport millions of immigrants, punish women who get abortions, ban Muslims from coming to our country, or enact any of the other radical ideas he’s proposed in this campaign.”
These are the utterances that Trump has been making in the past few months to woo the American voters.
Although Trump has managed to attract many Americans with his sensational speeches, most believe he is not fit to become the President because of his uncivil language and unstable thoughts. His speeches and tweets are full of vulgar words such as “stupid,” “goofy,” “crooked,” “liar,” “low life,” and so on.
While Trump is a presumptive GOP nominee, he has as many opponents in his own party as he has in the rival democratic camp. The Republican house speaker Paul Ryan, for example, has refused to accept Trump as a GOP nominee – at least at this stage.
Other GOP top brass including Mitt Romney is also disturbed with Trump and believes that Trump is a demagogue who is trying to exploit the sentiment of Americans.
Trump, however, said in a tweet today that he will win the election against Hillary despite the opposition in the Republican Party.
I will win the election against Crooked Hillary despite the people in the Republican Party that are currently and selfishly opposed to me!

It may sound strange but it is believed that in the given circumstances the GOP also wants Hillary Clinton to win the November election because it will be easier for GOP to convince cultured Clinton than stubborn Trump to get important legislations proposed by GOP passed by the government.
The current equation: Clinton has friends and Trump has enemies on both the sides.
“Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work, because we cannot afford a Trump presidency,” screams the Clinton article.
