Using a process of hand sorting of text that does not rely on algorithms, this work combines the respective acceptance speeches of U.S Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, given at their respective party conventions in July, 2016.

There is no additional text added or removed from the original transcripts with the exception of punctuation and [pauses], which have been altered for legibility and performance purposes.

The text taken from Hillary Clinton’s transcript is in blue, and text taken from Donald Trump’s transcript is in red.
