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

Vietnam

Vietnam is the biggest beneficiary of Donald Trump's trade war with China. Much of the rest of South East Asia is also benefiting. Some of the products Vietnam is shipping to the US have come from China, which is illegal. Much of the time, American industrial supply lines have been shifted out of China to Vietnam.

"...completely avoided if you buy from a non-Tariffed Country, or you buy the product inside the USA (the best idea). That’s Zero Tariffs. Many Tariffed companies will be leaving China for Vietnam and other such countries in Asia. That’s why China wants to make a deal so badly!..." - Donald Trump Twitter May 13, 2019
Joe Biden was admitted to the Delaware bar in 1969. Biden received student draft deferments during this period, at the peak of the Vietnam War, and in 1968, he was reclassified by the Selective Service System as not available for service due to having had asthma as a teenager. Biden has one of the longest backgrounds in foreign affairs of any livin…

Trump Eagles Joe Biden Patriotism

Donald Trump would take the United States' environmental policies in several directions. From limited environmental regulations to more territory under the status of being a National Park land, this president sets his own priorities.

"It's Friday. How many bald eagles did wind turbines kill today? They are an environmental & aesthetic disaster." - Donald Trump Twitter Aug. 24, 2012 As a senator, Joe Biden is the first congressman to introduce a climate change bill, the 1986 Global Climate Protection Act. While the bill did not pass, Biden has a long legacy he can point to on this topic.

Donald Trump's budgets incorporate larger increases in military spending. Ford Class Super Aircraft Carriers, and the debate over a steam catapult, are features of Trump's military preparedness.

He said the United States “reserves [the] right to defend our personnel, our facilities, and interests and calls upon all nations to condemn Iran’s attempts to disrupt freedom of navigation and global commerce.” - Donald Trump News CNBC July 18, 2019

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…

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
Joe Biden is known for greater measures of diplomacy, while championing the US military. Biden is hardly considered a dove for peace, but his positions carry less risk to American military members.

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.

"What a shock! The U.S. Capitol Christmas tree pays homage @BarakObama but failed to mention Jesus."  Trump on Twitter 20 Dec 2011
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.
