It is election time again soon and we need to make an important decision on whom our votes will go to. For the past few months, the most popular names circulating the position of the next United States of America president are Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, who is the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party, and Donald John Trump, who is the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. It is basically Venus versus Mars for the 2016 United States of America Presidential Elections.

We all know that Venus is the Roman goddess of love and beauty. It is the astronomical sign for the female sex and it represents femininity. It is just to emblematize the said goddess to the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party, Mrs. Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, or shortly know as Hillary Clinton. Hillary is the first lady, from 1993 to 2001, and wife of the 42nd President of the United States of America, William Jefferson Clinton, who is also known as Bill Clinton. Aside from being the first lady of the country, she also became the First Lady of Arkansas when his husband served as the Governor of Arkansas way back in 1979 to 1981 and 1983 to 1992. She also served as a United States Senator from New York last 2001 until 2009. Moreover, she became the 67th United States Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, serving under Barack Obama’s ruling years.

Off to the antagonist of Venus, the Roman god of war is Mars. We are all familiar that Mars represents the astronomical symbol for the male gender. It also represents masculinity and youth; hence, we would assume the role of Mars to the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party, Donald John Trump. An alumna of the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, Donald Trump is a known American business mogul. Also, he is recognized as an author of 16 books and a TV personality, the host of the popular television show, The Apprentice, from 2004 until 2015 and became an Emmy Award nominee twice.

Trump is surely one of the wealthiest people in the United States of America and the whole word with a net worth of 4.5 billion US Dollars last May 2016. He is noted as the Chairman and President of the Trump Organization, owning several real estate properties, golf courses, a football team and the Miss Universe Organization among others. Once upon a time, a Trump University LLC was also founded and provided training programs for real estate from 2005 until 2010, but was now defunct after multiple lawsuits. He is basically a business mogul trying to dip his foot in the political waters when he announced his candidacy for president under the Republican Party last June 2015 and became a frontrunner.
