In less than three months, America will cast its vote for the next President. Considered one of the most powerful positions in the world, the winner of this election will certainly have a lot to take on. The US economy is losing pace; racial and inequality tensions are dividing the fabric of the American public; immigration reform is long overdue; and regulations coming out of Washington are at an all-time high, burdening business and stifling job creation. And these are just the domestic concerns!
