2016 Presidential Candidates On Free Community College

  1. 1. Free Community College Clinton favors a needs-based free community college program. “I believe that we should make community college free. We should have debt-free college if you go to a public college or university,” she said during debates in Iowa this past November. She added, however, that she disagrees “with free college for everybody.” Hillary Clinton:

  6. 6.

Donald Trump:
