West Liberty Elementary Students Weigh In On The Election


They didn’t spend much time on issues like foreign policy or the economy.

They went right to their own set of priorities.

What qualities should a president have?

They decided he or she should be nice, brave, honest and kind.

What would life in the White House be like if kids ran the nation?

Ice cream would be served to heads of state.

And they might paint the White House a brighter color.

What should the president eat for dinner?

“I think he should eat pizza,” said Tristan Gonzalez, second grader.

“Ice Cream,” said Jenna Medlen, fourth grader.

“Steak, because steak’s really good,” noted Haley Miller, fifth grader.

“Macaroni and cheese!” shouted one whole group of students.

What sort of pet should the president have?

They decided on a rabbit, a bird, a hermit crab or a dog.

Not just any dog.

“A Beverly Hills Chihuahua, because you can carry him around,” said Alexa Loy, third grader.

And if they were president, what would be their first act in office?

“I would lower taxes, because they’re too high, and water bills and phone bills too,” said Jenna Medlen.

“I would have no homework in the schools, because we work hard enough in school,” said Haley Miller.

What would be the toughest decision a president would make?

“I think the toughest decision would be whether we were going into war or not,” said Adam Gill, fourth grader.

And finally, what should all grown-ups do on November 8?

“Get out there and vote!” the students yelled.

They took a poll on who should win, and Donald Trump was their choice by a landslide.

The also decided the White House needs to be painted.

There were a few votes for pink, one for red, but in the end, they settled on red, white and blue.
