Question: Earlier this year there was a controversy in the Philippines about the United States to re-opening a military base in your country. Do you think that United States should have a military presence in your country?
I think that the United States and the Philippines has always have a good relationship with each other, we were colonized by the Americans and we have their culture in our traditions even up to this day and I think that we’re very welcoming with the Americans and I don’t see any problem with that at all.
Second Candidate: Miss France – Flora Coquerel
Question: Having experience terrorism first hand yourself, what is the best way for government to combat this rising threat?
Answer (from translator):
In my opinion to fight terrorism, first we have to know where the problems are coming from. We have to listen to the people who are commiting these attacks. So we have to find the problem at its heart and for us French we have to learn to be happy, to live and to be among ourselves.
Third Candidate: Miss Australia – Monika Radulovic
Question: Australia is taking its first steps towards legalizing marijuana. Do you think that’s a good idea and why?
Thank you for that question Steve. Now this topic has brought positives and negatives and its quite debated, I believe that in certain circumstances legalizing marijuana does have definite benifits it has been found to be really amazing in treating cancer and its really really help those really really sick, so, in that circumstance I definitely do think, Yes we should but the government should definitely weigh both options. Thank you so much.
Fourth Candidate: Miss Colombia – Ariadna María Gutiérrez Arévalo
Question: Drug abuse continues to be one of the world’s most serious social problems. What do you think is the best way to handle this issue?
Answer (from translator):
The ideas that I have that we could use to eradicate these problems that unfortunately are affecting our world is in our homes to incentivize education for these problems because the continue to be large problems for the world.
Fifth Candidate: Miss USA – Olivia Jordan
Question: Few issues in the United States are more polarizing than gun ownership, the argument really heats up at a major tragedy events such as San Bernardino and Sandy Hook. What’s your possession on gun control?
This is an incredibly difficult issue in the United States constantly battling and weighing our options. I think that’s incredibly important that all individuals have the right to protect themselves and feel safe but I also think that sometimes we need to look at the safety as a whole more than our own personal safety, so I think we need stronger regulations specifically I think that we need to pay attention.
