With only days left for the US presidential elections, Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump are fighting tooth and nail to secure a lead in the election that would shape world politics and economy for years to come. This election season has seen considerable amount of mud-slinging and negative campaigning against both the candidates. While Trump has been accused of being racist and misogynistic, and was mired with accusations of sexual assault, Clinton has been struggling with an FBI investigation against her for using a private email server. She is also accused of siding with big money and corporations. 

Both have had to defend themselves as much as throwing accusations of incompetence against each other. While Clinton is a hardened politician with decades of experience and having performed the role of US secretary of state, Trump is a billionaire businessman who holds real estate in many countries. Both the candidates stand with guns blazing waiting for the D-day now, to see who America chooses on November 8.
