Abstract

The 2016 presidential election was a historical event, politically and culturally. In front of cameras at rallies in every city, candidates were competing for the most powerful position in the United Sates: Commander in Chief. We later found out some were playing dirtier than others. Ad and campaign videos splashed across T.V.s, hoping to sway voters their way. Un-suspecting Americans trusted the process and had no reason to think foreign entities were secretly at work.
