The US voters on November 8 will cast their votes to decide between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as their next president. Hopes emerged after the FBI maintained the opinion that Hillary Clinton’s handling of her e-mails wasn’t a crime, raising hopes of the Democrat emerging victorious in the race for the White House.
