Student Trump Supporters, Students For Hillary To Debate

Students for Hillary and Penn State’s Bull Moose Party (unofficially known as Students for Trump or We Are for Trump) will host their first debate of the semester Tuesday, September 27 at 8 p.m. in 101 Thomas, moderated by the Speech and Debate Society. The debate will include topics such as immigration, the economy, and foreign policy, and is part of UPUA’s PSU Votes Week.

The debate, which will occur the day after the first nationally-televised debate between presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, is one of numerous other political events on campus in recent weeks, like Chelsea Clinton’s visit to State College and the controversy within the Penn State College Republicans.

Johnna Purcell, the President of Students for Hillary, and Katierose Epstein, the Outreach Chair for Students for Hillary, will represent Clinton. Felippe Maher, the Vice President of the Penn State Bull Moose Party, and Chris Baker, the organization’s Communications Director, will represent Trump.

Hillary Clinton is the candidate for every American and those from abroad, even the ones that don’t support her. She wants to keep families together, not tear them apart. Clinton also has real foreign policy experience unlike the Republican candidate,” Epstein said. “I am more than proud to support her because I know she has the best interest of college students and the working class in mind.”

Last month, Maher led calls for the Penn State College Republicans to impeach their executive board after they voted not to endorse Donald Trump for president.

“This debate is paramount for students of all race, religion, sexual orientation, party, or creed. Many hold that this election had gone into the dark, that they must choose between the lesser of two evils. We hope to shed light upon the facts pertaining to the most pressing matters at hand for the future we must inherit,” Baker said. “Our debate will prove true the age old doctrine ‘you can’t always get what you want, but sometimes you just might find you get what you need’ and what we need is Donald J. Trump.”
