Pro-Con: Should Trump stay or go?

Con: Remove Trump because his spending, lies, & temper are crippling America

With the 2020 election approaching, the controversies surrounding current President Donald Trump is more evident than ever. There are many reasons why Trump should not remain in office.

Trump was recently impeached for his abuse of power. The POTUS has been accused of being a racist and anti-feminist. For example, Trump told four congresswomen, three of which who were born in the United States and all of whom hold U.S. citizen

ship to do the following via Twitter:

“Go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

It is a popular belief that Trump’s hot headed temper makes him unfit to run a country. Typically, Trump has a strong opinion on things that are not viewed as respectful by the public. The POTUS has personally insulted multiple people on various occasions, including the event in which he mocked a disabled reporter on live television.

Trump recently tweeted that he had spent two trillion dollars on expanding the military on The United States’ behalf due to the possible imposing war with Iran caused by him ordering the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. Trump said that he would use the equipment if necessary to ‘hit’ Iran.

“Very fast and very hard.” said Trump via Twitter.

During the president’s term, The United States’ national debt has increased immensely from 10.6 to 19.19 trillion dollars. Most of the money he spent was unnecessarily used towards a war the U.S has not technically declared yet.

Jobs may have peaked while Trump was in office, but unemployment rates have not decreased by much during his term. There are still homeless people on our streets without any job opportunities.

All of the things that Trump has done during his years as POTUS have caused a more negative than positive impact, therefore he should not be reelected for a second term.

Pro: Keep Trump because his plan is boosting America, the economy

As the past four years have proven to be successful, United States President Donald Trump should remain in the presidential office for a second term.

President Trump has recently been impeached for abusing his power, but many believe these to be false accusations. Trump’s supporters feel he promotes nationalism, and that he truly cares about America.

President Trump has been known to keep his word. So far, everything he has said he was going to do, he has done, and he kept his promise.

One of the things he has done to improve the economy is making more jobs available to the average American. The job opportunities have peaked, and over 2.4 million jobs have been added to the economy. The unemployment rate is the lowest it has been since 1967, according to the Bureau of Statistics.

Many people are aware of Donald Trump ordering the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. The POTUS had good reasoning for his actions. General Qassem Soleimani has been linked to the killing of many American soldiers, and the president was simply defending his country. This act of violence was a reaction based off of the actions of General Soleimani.

The POTUS may have recently spent two trillion dollars on United States military equipment, but he did so with good reasoning. He was building up our military and making it stronger for the possible imposing war with Iran. His intentions were to keep the American people protected by making a stronger and better equipped military force.

President Donald Trump has done many things to improve the economy in the United States and has proven to be more than capable to run the nation. What President Trump has done in his presidency so far has been highly beneficial for the country, and shows that he should definitely be reelected for a second presidential term.
