"Although perhaps more to America itself than towards other countries."

    From the economic perspective, I want Hillary Clinton to be president because with Mr Trump everything would be uncertain.

    I don't believe there are any true liberals in the presidential race, and the difficulty with Clinton is that she doesn't really provide much of a reason to support her.

    On the other hand, what can be said is that she would be a better president than the alternative.

    I don't expect her to become a great president, but she would at least be a little better than Mr Trump, who is very careless about the things that he says. He just blurts things out and then must apologise.

    I don't trust that his policies towards Japan would be balanced, and from that perspective I don't like him. I also think that he would be dangerous, though perhaps more to America itself than towards other countries.
