The Argument

Donald Trump worked over several years to combat the AIDS crisis with philanthropic organizations. [1] The Trump Administration secured historic billions of dollars of donations in life-saving HIV preventative medication. [2] Trump plans to end HIV in America. [3]

Counter arguments

"Donald Trump and Mike Pence have given hate against LGBTQ+ individuals safe harbor and rolled back critical protections for the LGBTQ+ community. By blocking the ability of transgender individuals to openly serve their country, denying LGBTQ+ people access to critical health care, proposing policies allowing federally funded homeless shelters to turn away transgender people and federally funded adoption agencies to reject same-sex couples, and failing to address the epidemic of violence against transgender people—particularly transgender women of color—the Trump-Pence Administration has led a systematic effort to undo the progress President Obama and Vice President Biden made."[4]
