Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are flawed and "neither is clearly better than the other," the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Philadelphia says.

In a column for CatholicPhilly.com, Charles Chaput, who is a registered independent, writes:

"Both candidates for the nation's top residence, the White House, have astonishing flaws. This is depressing and liberating at the same time.

"Depressing, because it's proof of how polarized the nation has become. Liberating, because for the honest voter, it's much easier this year to ignore the routine tribal loyalty chants of both the Democratic and Republican camps … Neither is clearly better than the other."

Chaput points out that according to Forbes magazine, Trump is worth roughly $4.5 billion, while Hillary is worth roughly $45 million.

"Neither major candidate lives anywhere near the solar system where most Americans live, work and raise families. Nonetheless, we're asked to trust them," he writes.

"The next few months will determine the next decade and more of our nation's life. We need to be awake, we need to clear our heads of media noise, and we need to think quietly and carefully before we vote. None of us can afford to live the coming weeks on autopilot."
