Donald Trump should not be re-elected

Tribune Content Agency


 Donald Trump remains one of the most controversial politicians in the U.S. When Trump was president last time, the country was incredibly divided.

 Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter were at war with each other.  During the whole fiasco, Donald Trump did absolutely nothing on the issue and did nothing to keep the peace.

School shootings were at an all-time high. According to NCES, 58 casualties were from school shootings during Trump’s first year in office. The next year it spiked to 182 casualties.

Donald Trump should not be our future president.  

 Trump does speak the truth, but he does it in a very immature, controversial way. Look at how he speaks about his daughter Ivanka. 

 “Although she does have a very nice figure,” Trump said. “I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her.” 

I do not think Trump meant this in an incest way, but he raised his daughter in a way that made him envious of any man dating her.

 I assume he thrives in controversy, and a controversial person grabs the attention of devoted fans. His fan base worships him for his wrong delivery. 

Look no further than the insurrection in D.C. on Jan. 6. Trump has always been a sore loser.

 As of Feb. 1, Trump leads Biden in the polls by 4% of votes. According to CNN, 49% of registered voters say they would back Trump if an election between the two was held today, while 45% support Biden. 

The election seems like a long-winded fight, just like in 2020.

 Trump is being accused of various crimes in multiple cases as he is running for president. 

I don’t understand how people think someone who is being accused of any crime should run for office, especially for the presidency.

 As president, you should leave our country in a better place than when you came into office. Trump left office with a highly contagious disease running rampant, people fighting each other and a lot of death.

 Why would the American people want to experience that again?

 According to KFF Health News, more than 100 thousand Americans have perished in the pandemic in just the first five weeks. Trump even said to inject Lysol into yourself, which is not only ridiculous but dangerous. 

 “I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute,” Trump said. “And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or a cleaning?” 

 Hopefully, people have been released from his spell and can see all through his media antics. 

Everyone who is over 18 should vote. I advise everyone not to vote for Trump if he does not get disqualified for losing his trial.

 At the presidential debates, listen to the entire answer. 

Watch the debates and see how the candidates react under pressure to see who you think can make decisions for this country.

 I do not think Biden should be re-elected as well. However, he is a lot better than Donald Trump being in office. 

If people do not vote, then they should not complain. We need to make sure Trump does not become president again. 

We already see what the damage he can do while in office, and it is just not worth it. Trump must be held accountable for his crimes and must be stopped from becoming president again. If we do not, the state of our country will only continue to worsen.
