Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:SIRI) has been gaining a lot of attention, from both Democratic and Republican, party members. The company claimed that this proves that SiriusXM is the ultimate destination for political updates. The radio gained momentum, after it broadcast news making interviews with the two presidential candidates and the current President and Vice President of the country.
The most recent guest on the radio was President Barack Obama, who was interviewed on channel Shade 45, on a wide array of topics, including music, politics and sports. Meanwhile, on channel Patriot (125), presidential candidate Donald Trump, spoke about his promise to nominate only conservatives to the Supreme Court. He had made this promise to undecided republican voters. Mr. Trump also spoke on the criticism he had received from CNN, on taking time out of his campaign to open his new hotel in Washington D.C. He also claimed that he was acting as a messenger for the forgotten countrymen and women.
The second candidate, Hilary Clinton, appeared on Channel Progress (127), on Wednesday, last week, to discuss her presidential campaign. She also claimed that this was a difficult campaign for the country and her first order of business would be to heal the country. In addition to this, the Vice President, Joe Bidden, has been interviewed by Michael Smerconish, which would air today, on SiriusXm P.O.T.U.S. (124), which includes comments of Ms. Clinton’s announcement to appoint Mr. Bidden as her secretary of state, if she won.
