It has been a tumultuous 4 years of the Donald Trump presidency in the United States, with investigations, nominations, fake news, tweets, impeachment, pandemics, protests, and a nation divided about the facts on the ground and the direction the country should be taking. Many see the 2020 US Presidential Election as the most important election in history, with huge implications for the US, but also for the world. So who should win the US Presidential election?
Joe Biden should be elected in the 2020 US election
Joe Biden will be a conciliatory president for a nation divided by race, class and identity. He is the candidate to give America back its standing in the world, and to put the threat of climate change back at the very top of the global agenda.
Joe Biden will end Trump's unsuccessful trade wars
Trump oversells the success of his strongman tariff policies. This negotiation style has seen Trump repeatedly fail to meet his own year-on-year 4%+ growth pronouncements.
Joe Biden has over five decades of serving in public life
Biden's first Democratic Presidential bid was in 1988. His experience in US politics dwarfs that of former celebrity realtor Donald Trump, and is precisely what is needed at this critical point in human history.
Joe Biden is committed to brokering peace in the Middle East
Biden will funnel resources into peace building in the Middle East to put an end to the protracted Arab-Israeli conflict. He will also restore humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
Joe Biden will make huge steps to stop climate change
Biden's proposed "Clean Energy Revolution" would be game changing. Its commitments include a totally clean energy economy by 2050. He has also vowed to incentivise the rest of the world to join this mission, which is critical for the fight against climate change.
Joe Biden will give all Americans affordable health insurance
Since 2016, the number of Americans unable to afford healthcare has risen by 1.4 million. Biden has vowed to reverse this trend and widen access to healthcare for all, viewing it as a right rather than a privilege.
Joe Biden will remove tuition fees for low and middle income families
The rising prices of higher education have entrenched inequalities for generations. Biden has committed to removing student tuition for students from families with a household income lower than $125,000 thereby widening access and opportunity.
Joe Biden will end America's gun violence epidemic
Biden has a successful track record of fighting against the NRA, and action for greater gun control. With rising levels of gun violence, introducing more stringent controls on their sale and procurement is essential.
Biden will enforce wage gap transparency and accountability as one of his many pledges to end gender income equality. He also has plans to widen female representation public life and reduce systemic inequalities.
Joe Biden will refocus criminal justice on rehabilitation
Biden's promises for criminal justice reform focus on rehabilitating offenders and helping them get back into society. This focus on prevention not cure will alleviate government reliance and spending on the US prison system.
Donald Trump should be re-elected in the 2020 US election
Donald Trump has kept his promises and is making America great again. He is taking on the entrenched interests of the media and liberal cultural and is standing up for US interests around the world. He should be re-elected as President of the United States of America.
Donald Trump puts US interests first
The role of US President is to act in America's interests. Trump has remained true to his controversial "America First" vision throughout his first term. Historically, a lot of resources have been wasted by waging never-ending wars and interventions overseas.
Trump has made US politics more democratic by refusing to participate in elite politics and running on an agenda to represent the marginalised. Unlike establishment politicians, Trump is not afraid to speak bluntly on the issues which affect most Americans.
Under Trump, US jobs have been created at the fastest rate since records began. His commitment to tackling unemployment has been felt in the everyday lives of many Americans who were previously out of work.
Trump's tax reforms dramatically reduced the American tax burden. In the twelve months between November 2018 and 2019, tax liabilities dropped from a total of $1.619 trillion tp $1.552 trillion, or 4% overall.
Trump has invigorated US defense, and protected its military, by increasing pay, introducing family leave for all federal workers, and increasing the defense budget to a colossal $738 billion for the 2020 fiscal year.
Trump has delivered on his promise to turn the "tide of violent crime", with rates of crime, violent crime, and murder dropping significantly since 2016. This trend is forecast to continue if Trump is re-elected for a second term.
American cities have been subjected to violent protests, looting, fires and riots that have shaken the foundations of civil society. Trump will ensure that the "antifa" movement is made accountable for the wreckage it has unleashed.
