Politics in the USA – level 1

14-09-2016 07:00

This news is from the USA. Americans are not happy with representation. There is a new campaign. It tells people not to vote.

People do not like the presidential candidates. They say that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the worst candidates in history. They say that people must choose between two bad people.

Difficult words: representation (political representation – how the people you choose represent you – speak for you), campaign (organisation which tells people to do something), vote (choose something or somebody), presidential candidate (a person who wants to become president).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
