WHO WON THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE?
Thursday October 22, 2020 was the last presidential debate between Donald J. Trump and Joe Biden, this is our take on it.
First off, lets tip our hat to the fabulous moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC News who set the rules and stuck by them. She also didn’t let Trump or Biden avoid answering any questions, even at times reiterating what she said.
Unlike the first presidential debate, you could hear what both Trump and Biden had to say, even giving their rebuttals.
The main topics consisted of the Covid Crises, Race, Climate Change, Immigration, Wages.
When it came downs to Covid, Trump insist that we should keep the country open; things are getting better; we will have a vaccine soon (although he cant confirm when). While Biden would consider closing certain states dependent on their spike and implementing that everyone should where a mask to keep the public safe, and giving money to smaller businesses to prep their businesses to open up safely to the public.
Immigration was a very sensitive topic while over 500 immigrant children have been separated from their parents and now are unable to be reunited. This is very disturbing, and we have not been given a clear answer on how it can be rectified. While Trump focused on the cages that were put in place to detain said immigrants, the fact of the matter is they should have never been separated from their parents or guardians while being detained!
Let us also bring to light that there are alleged allegations that a doctor at an Ice Detention Center in Georgia has been giving women unauthorized hysterectomies! Also did you know that some detention centers are “privately owned?”
Let’s also not glaze over his statement that immigrants with a “lower IQ” appear in court! “How Sway?” That alone makes no sense. So you have to be stupid to obey the law in wanting to become a legal citizen of the United States!
Trump said “I have done more for black people since Abraham Lincoln?” Wrong! He has done nothing but add fuel to the fire. He said he knew nothing about Black Lives Matter, yet he calls them “a symbol of hate.” If Black Lives Matters is a symbol of hate then what are the Proud Boys?
Climate change is important, not just the United States but the world as a whole. We can’t progress by standing still. Reality is that the oil industry although very important isn’t the end all be all. We see that with electric cars. People want to save money while helping the environment. There was a time when those who purchased electric cars received a tax credit! Biden wants to push climate change and create jobs while doing so.
Biden confirmed that mistakes were made and apologized. We will take that for now! We will also hold him everything that he said that he will do.
The fact of the matter is we need change. We are the United States of America and over the past 4 years there has been a major divide between the haves and the have nots. Either you are rich or poor, a person of color or white. If we continue down this path there may be no point of return.
So the candidate who won the debate if you haven’t guessed is Joe Biden. He may not be the best of the best, but he has a plan and its better than being thrown into a lake filled with fire.
