The Clean Cut: The Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton who are not running for president
Posted November 3
Sharing a name with someone can cause problems in the classroom or the workplace. But what kind of problems can it cause if the person with the shared the name is also running for president?
In a CNN video posted on YouTube, another Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton discuss some of the problems that come with having the same names as the presidential candidates. This Trump works as a medical oncologist, while Clinton is an event specialist.
When they introduce themselves to others, Trump and Clinton say the normal reaction is disbelief. In the video, Trump calls the Trump International Hotel to ask for a reservation, but when he says his name, the receptionist places him on hold before asking for his name again.
However, while neither of them are running for president, they sometimes receive special treatment.
“I’ve had a few reservations at restaurants where they’ve made the assumption… [that] Hillary Clinton [is] coming to the restaurant and I’ve had a few private rooms,” Clinton says in the video.
