Forums - Politics Discussion - Biden vs Trump 2024 Political Platforms, Policies and Issues

2024 Elections are coming up!

I am interested in the political running platform that each have. So I decided to do some research and wanted to share my findings.
If I missed any please let me know and I will update, it was really difficult to find the issues from both people.

One problem I always see with these is that often, they say what they want to do, but not how they want to do or achieve it.

For instance, Trump want to lower the taxes, but doesn't say how he wants to finance that, same with Biden's social services funding. And how both want to want to to achieve that get the gas prices to go down.

I think this is a fundamental difference between the US and many other western countries, where the (mainstream) parties also detail how they want to achieve and finance their policies to some degree.



Which friends does America have with Trump in office though? UK, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan? He wants to continue the trade war with EU and has repeatedly stayed he wants the US to get out of NATO. So by voting for Trump you will vote for further isolation and the US will push the EU to China and India.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Yeah, the "Restore our standing in the world and American leadership abroad" point of Trump is pretty much the reverse of what will happen with him in power. Unless he means to restore the situation from before the 1880's, where the US where still considered as mostly insignificant by the european powers.



How people are embracing trump is a complete mystery to me. I'm a registered republican and I just don't get it.

Herd mentality and outrage news maybe? But yeah, still mystifying how someone like him can be a frontrunner of anything, let alone potentially the most powerful man on earth yet again.



When Trump was in office no new wars the US got involved in. Took money away from ISIS to let them fold. With Biden it's the same wars everywhere again, designed to be perpetual, to keep the weapons industry going. For world peace I think Trump is better.

Sure.  Assuming he doesn't succeed in overthrowing democracy and claims authority in the most powerful country in the world...  he already tried it once.
