Who says Americans need to be at least 18 years old to have a sound opinion about the next commander in chief? To see whether Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are getting through to the nation’s future titans of industry, Us Weekly encouraged (read: forced) a 7-year-old to watch the second 2016 presidential debate on Sunday, October 9.

The aforementioned child clearly did not love this assignment, and had so, so many questions. Here are 28 of them — along with three extra statements for good measure. Luckily, the youngster still has until 2028 to get excited about this civic duty.
