American Flag

Donald Trump's MAGA is along side the US Flag in the consciousness of Republican Americans. The flag is a symbol of unity, particularly poignant on July 4th.

"Today, we come together as one nation with this very special Salute to America," Trump said. "We celebrate our history, our people, and the heroes who proudly defend our flag — the brave men and women of the United States military." - Donald Trump News Lincoln Memorial July 4, 2019 In 1989, Joe Biden worked in congress to make it illegal to burn the US flag. Seeing the flag as symbolism, Biden sees nothing absolute in free speech, ie shouting fire in a movie theater. Further in interviews equating burning the flag to burning down your house.

Native American Anger

Native Americans see immigration, a major political matter, in different ways than Donald Trump does. While indigenous tribes have only a small voice in domestic policy, their voices carry weight on the topic.
"There is no moral high ground from which President Trump or any of his followers can tell anyone to leave this country, because they are not the first inhabitants of this land." - Discussing Trump in the news, Rep. Deb Haaland (D-N.M.) “We have to stop letting these guys use the divisions that exist in the country as charlatans always do to divide the country,” Joe Biden said at Monday’s event. “We have a guy in the White House who has turned that into an art form.”

“Our policies discriminate against and devalue black people, Native Americans, people of color, women and LGBTQ people,” he said.

Transcending Twitter

Donald Trump takes  people on in a New York City manner. A tough banter, reserving MAGA as a study in humanity. Trump over time is well studied in American history.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral & religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”-- John Adams - Donald Trump Twitter quote September 20, 2013 "The same forces of hatred rooted in 'birtherism' that questioned @BarackObama's American citizenship, and even his racial identity, are now being used against Senator@KamalaHarris. It’s disgusting and we have to call it out when we see it. Racism has no place in America." - Joe Biden Twitter quote June 29, 2019

F15 Eagle News

Donald Trump has worked tirelessly to increase the military budget. The president has also moved to have Boeing supply more F15s and F15X Strike Eagles.

"Recently I have been attacked in the media because of my views, actions, and votes on foreign policy issues," Sanders said. "So let me be as clear as I can be. Yes, as a young man, along with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and others, I marched against the war in Vietnam... As a member of the House of Representatives, I helped lead the opposition to the war in Iraq... As a member of the Senate recently, I am proud to have been the lead sponsor on a resolution that, for the first time in 45 years, utilized the War Powers Act to get a ma…

Fetus Trump Bernie Sanders

Donald Trump is greatly restricting access to abortion across the country. Rules involving Title X are being enforced. More religious people are supporting the president in efforts to overturn Roe v Wade.
"Taxpayer-funded family planning clinics must stop referring women for abortions immediately, the Trump administration said Monday, declaring it will begin enforcing a new regulation hailed by religious conservatives and denounced by medical organizations and women’s rights groups." - AP News - Donald Trump News July 15, 2019Bernie Sanders has long fought for low income women to have access to abortion procedures. Supporting bills in congress that would codify abortion rights, Sanders has a long track record on this topic.


Donald Trump asks, "what have you got to lose" of African Americans? Promising a better economy that would be inclusive of Black Americans.

"Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected. In particular, African Americans will not be able to vote for you. I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, & helped fix the bad 1994 Bill!" - Donald Trump Twitter May 27, 2019

Bernie Sanders strenuously denounced the 1994 bill before Congress, concerned with how punitive the act would be towards African Americans and other disenfranchised people. Sanders in support of women, regarding another section of the bill, voted the act into law.

Grand Canyon

Donald Trump in 2019 signed into law a new very large conservation law. The law establishes five new parks and monuments. Extends significantly several other parks. The Parks Service budget has been cut this year. Two extremely large Obama and Clinton era monuments in Utah were limited by Trump. He cited overreach by the two prior presidents as the reason.

"The U.S. Geological Survey is leading a 15-year study meant to determine whether a 1 million-acre area surrounding the national park needs protection from new uranium mining claims well into the future. Now, no one can stake claims until 2032, though a portion of that Obama-era ban is under review by the Trump administration." - Trump Admin in the news - Denver Post March 8, 2018 The Global Climate Protection Act was introduced by Joe Biden to the Senate in 1986. Working across the aisle, the act was passed and signed into law by then President Ronald Reagan. This became the first major piece of federal legislation to com…

Air Force

Donald Trump News v Joe Biden

Donald Trump is exercising America's military might around the world. The US Air Fore is a corner stone in our defenses. With a fantastic ability to project power, the US Air Force is second to none.

"You are the ones who will invent and define the next generation of air warfare," Trump said to the class of nearly 1,000 cadets who earned the rank of second lieutenant. "You'll win so much you're gonna get tired of winning," Trump ad-libbed. - Donald Trump in the News addressing graduating Air Force Cadets during his commencement speech, May 30, 2019

Donald Trump v Joe Biden on Faith

Donald Trump, sweetheart of the Evangelical movement, has championed many conservative positions. Putting religion center stage in American political life, people of faith support Trump.

Joe Biden is a staunchly committed Catholic man of faith. As a Senator, and then as Vice President, Biden brought his principles to bear, but has maintained a separation of church and state in policy making.
