America is often hailed as the greatest country on Earth. It’s a country founded on the belief that all people are entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; a country that has inspired men and women to fight for its freedoms for over two centuries.

But we are not without our problems. There is a growing dissatisfaction with American politics as our fundamental rights are being called into question. Americans have, seemingly little trust for politicians and instead are looking for leadership in out-of-the-ordinary candidates during this election year.

The candidate with the most controversy is business mogul Donald Trump. Trump has gained celebrity status over the years for his reality show The Apprentice, where each week he would fire-off celebrity employees until there was a single winner.

Trump has gained his controversial persona by his declaration to build a wall along the Mexican border, his plan to ban all Muslims from entering the country, and by making derogatory remarks to multiple groups of people. Some Americans find Mr. Trump appealing because he speaks his mind and has been successful at running multimillion-dollar companies. Others are repelled by the fear and hatred he is instilling into the masses.

No matter the viewpoint, people have an opinion about Trump. This video takes a look at two outspoken individuals in Daytona Beach who represent each side of the spectrum.
