The United States presidency isn’t just another job; it’s the hardest job in the world. It requires steadiness as well as strength and smarts. Consider that, and then consider the things Donald Trump has been saying for the past year, and even just the past week: attacking Great Britain; praising the leader of North Korea, a despotic dictator who has nuclear weapons; saying to let other countries have nuclear weapons; and the list goes on. The kinds of positions he is stating and the consequences of those positions and statements are not just offensive and wrong—they are dangerous. And when Trump is consistently offending, insulting, and endangering the people of this country and the world, there’s only one conclusion: he is not qualified to be President of the United States.

“What I will do as your president is wake up every day trying to think what I can do that day to provide more opportunities, to build more bridges, to break down the barriers that stand in the way of any American getting ahead and staying ahead. Our potential is still, in my mind, limitless. All that holds us back is our political will.” —Hillary

“I sat there with my heart just brimming over, thinking this is what we need more of in America, where we are listening to each other, talking to each other, respecting each other.” —Hillary

You know who’s really brave? The new mother who heads back to work 10 days after giving birth because she doesn’t have any form of paid family leave, but needs to pay the bills. It’s long past time we join the rest of the industrialized world and guarantee paid family leave in America.

Running for president is like a gigantic job interview and there are three big tests you should apply to anybody asking for your vote. First, can they produce positive results that make a difference in people’s lives? Second, can they keep us safe? Finally, can they unify our country? In some ways, that may be among the most important tasks facing the next president.
