Every Wednesday we ask our Brain Game contestants one interesting, thought-provoking or just plain quirky question. Their answers will be published anonymously in Young Post. Then readers vote for their FAVOURITE answer. We will eliminate the contestant with the LEAST votes every week until we have a winner. The ultimate Brain Game winner will win Apple AirPods.

Votes close at midnight on Sunday.

The contestants

Contestant 1

First of all, I’d forget about building “The Wall”. Instead, I’d focus on the environment. As the world’s most powerful leader, I’d try to encourage other countries to help save the planet. To achieve this, I’d reduce America’s dependence on fossil fuels by investing in alternate energy sources, such as solar energy and hydropower. Also, I’d introduce a law limiting the use of plastic bags. By working together, we will be able to create a better future for future generations.

Contestant 2

I’d work with the United Nations to ensure a peaceful world. I’ll also give more money to the UN to build better facilities for refugees in Europe, work to stop climate change, and be involved in other problems that need urgent solutions.

Contestant 3

I’d do four main things. First, make America safer, healthier, and more environmentally friendly, and end the trade war with China. Second, I’d introduce gun control laws and a health care system, such as Obamacare, so that people could be healthier. Third, I’d
re-sign the Paris Agreement, helping in the battle against climate change. Finally, I’d remove all tariffs on Chinese goods, while promoting free trade and world peace.

Contestant 4

First of all, I’d walk to Burger King and buy a cheeseburger. As the president, I’d have no problem taking selfies with my fans and signing autographs. Since I’d also have access to Trump’s infamous Twitter account, posting memes and spreading fake news would be
the perfect way to grab the world’s attention. Just imagine the look of utter horror on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s face when he finds out that the US president has just posted a meme about his hair! I’d also probably pour ink all over Trump’s official documents just for the fun of it!

Contestant 5

I’d buy whatever I want … Gucci bags, Rolex watches, Ferrari cars and more! I’d also invite all my friends to a party at the White House. While we were having fun, we’d take some nice pictures and post them on Instagram, #BestDayEver. I bet I could get more likes than Kylie Jenner! I’d also do something good like phoning North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to talk about politics and President Xi Jinping to discuss ways to end the trade war.

Contestant 6

It would be cool because I am not a big fan of Trump, someone who discriminates against certain groups. I believe people have a right to choose where they wish to go. So there should not be any border wall between Mexico and America. The best thing is, when we switched back identities, he would be surrounded by the media and he wouldn’t know what was going on. On top of that, I would make my room so dirty before he became “me”, he would have to deal with my angry parents while I would be enjoying life in the White House!

Contestant 7

As Trump, I’d call on all of you to make a generous donation to him. Next, I’d enjoy the wonderful services at the White House and greet my fellow Americans in my Lamborghini. Now for the good stuff. There would be no wall and I’d provide education for every child. You could be a proud citizen of the US no matter your race, sex, sexual orientation, or religion. This is your Trump of the day: let’s make America great again!

Contestant 8

I’d increase funding for cancer research, provide social welfare to those who deserve it, and make US borders secure. I’d definitely call on students to use less paper which would help to combat global warming. I’d also try to uphold traditional values that have made the country great. What’s more, I would increase the minimum wage to ensure social stability in the US.
