Presidential elections in USA will happen in November 2016. The presidential hopefuls are currently going through what we call Primaries or Caucuses. Let us have a look at the political parties of USA.

The American politics comprises of two major parties – Democrats and Republicans .
The Democratic party draws the minority and marginalized communities like blacks and  Hispanics more than what Republicans would typically do.
As the article by Munish Kumar Raizada explains, main political agenda of Democrats leans towards being socially liberal . They are a left leaning party with liberal views on social issues and supporting causes like same sex marriage , pro – choice etc.
Given their social standing democrats tend to regulate social services.
Due to its ideology of social justice it tends to attract poor , middle-class and immigrant populations .
President Barack Obama is a Democrat and the current frontrunner for the 2016 elections from the Democratic party are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. While, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the main contestants at this stage in Republican party.

While Republican party has a more right leaning view and is typically considered to be fiscally
conservative . It has a more conservative approach towards social issues like gay rights, abortions etc .
Republicans are conceived to be a representation of capitalism . They believe in fewer taxes and are
perceived to be pro business . Abraham Lincoln was a Republican .
The current frontrunner for the 2016 presidential race in the United State Of America from the Democratic party is Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

Polarization over issue of Islamic Terrorism:
Paralyzed by political correctness about Islam the Democratic party refuses to use the word “Islamic terrorism”. President Obama was wishy washy on the day of Brussels terrorist attack last week.
When attacks are made by a communist sector we call that a communal attack then why should religion be any different ?
Why does religion get the free pass ?
The logic that the Democrats has worked up is that not all Muslims are terrorists , but if someone is a terrorist the odds of them being a Muslim increases . It is true that terrorists of other ethnicity exist as well but it is a fact that the volume of Islamic terrorists is more distinct , and is a bigger threat to society.
At the end it all boils down to the fact that if we are not ready to identify the problem how can we come up with the solution ?

Trump Launched A New Attack On Mueller Probe In Russia

Democrats also took note of the report

Outside the White House Friday, a media frenzy.

And at the center of it all, President Donald Trump.

“Can we do one question at a time? Wait! One question at a time,” the president scolded reporters.

Trump launched a new attack on the Russia probe in the wake of a critical report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation by the inspector general of the Department of Justice.

“I did nothing wrong. There was no collusion. There was no obstruction,” he said. “The IG (inspector general) report yesterday went a long way to show that, and I think that the Mueller investigation has been totally discredited.”

But the report in question only dealt with how the FBI handled the Clinton email controversy.

It was critical of the man Trump fired as FBI director, James Comey, but rejected the notion of a politically-directed effort aimed at Trump.

“This report did not find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the investigation under review,” announced current FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Democrats also took note of the report.

“Anyone who is hoping to use this report to undermine the Mueller probe or prove the existence of a ‘deep state’ conspiracy against President Trump will be sorely disappointed,” Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said.

During his lengthy encounter with reporters Friday, Trump also defended his recent summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“They are doing so much for us, and now we are well on our way to get denuclearization,” he said. “And the agreement says there will be total denuclearization. Nobody wants to report that. I got along with him great. We have a great chemistry together. That is a good thing, not a bad thing.”

Trump also lashed out at opposition Democrats and tried to blame them for recent administration actions to separate family members caught trying to come across the U.S. border.

“The Democrats forced that law upon our nation. I hate it. I hate to see separation of parents and children,” Trump said.

A host of Democrats on Capitol Hill blasted the president’s comments, including Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico.

“There are no substantive defenses, no policy defenses, to their current actions separating families and taking children away from their mothers and fathers at the border. It just is another indication that they cannot govern,” she said.
