Marc Lotter, Every four years the American people put the future of the country on the ballot and every four years a variety of issues take center stage as presidential candidates make their case to the American people.
In 2020, this election will likely come down to a single word with multiple meanings – SECURITY. Your economic security, the security of you and your family, and America’s national security. With respect to these critical areas the choice this election is clear – the American people need four more years of President Donald Trump.
James Carville said it best in 1992, “It’s the economy, stupid.” Presidential elections typically center on economic issues. That has not changed in 2020. Americans are going to face a choice between President Trump, who built the strongest economy in a generation with wages growing across all demographics and the lowest unemployment rate in decades, or Joe Biden. The President will present a record of success and the hope for even better days to come. Biden has a record of abject failure with his vote for NAFTA and support for TPP, which caused blue-collar jobs to flee overseas, or his proposed $4 trillion tax increase and disastrous Green New Deal policies that would eliminate even more jobs. Joe Biden oversaw the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression. President Trump grew our economy to new heights once and he will do it again.
Economic security also requires security at home. Here again the choice is clear. American cities are burning as rioters, looters, and anarchists have taken control of Democrat-run cities. President Trump is responding forcefully in support of our police to restore safety and security in our neighborhoods. Joe Biden’s response has been to call police the enemy. His running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, compared law enforcement to the KKK, and the radical Democrat party openly supports the defund the police movement. There is a reason why many major police organizations support President Trump. They know he supports the men and women who run toward the danger, protect our loved-ones and children, and help keep our neighborhoods safe. The radical Democrat Party of Joe Biden cannot even denounce the violence and chaos in America’s cities. In some areas, protestors are now going neighborhood to neighborhood threatening peaceful families and warning them that their house in next. Would you feel safer in Joe Biden’s America with fewer police?
Lastly, the most important responsibility of any President is to protect our nation and her allies from threats abroad. Again, the choice is clear in this election. President Trump has rebuilt our military and ended America’s involvement in senseless wars. He also made the tough, yet pivotal, call to take out top terror groups and terrorists around the world.
President Trump ended the horrible Obama-Biden Iran Deal that provided billions to the leading sponsor of terror in the world and paved the way for Iran to obtain nuclear weapons. He wiped out the ISIS caliphate that developed and flourished under Obama-Biden. He ordered the strikes the killed top terrorists like Iran’s brutal Qasem Soleimani and ISIS leader Abu Bakr a-Baghdadi. Joe Biden, on the other hand, opposed the raid which killed Osama bin-Laden. He voiced his opposition to President Trump’s terrorist killing airstrikes. If Joe Biden had his way these terrorists would still be walking this earth. America cannot afford a weak president like Biden who is afraid to make difficult decisions to kills terrorists and make the world safer place.
The 2020 presidential election is about security, yours! If you care about the economic, personal, and national security of our nation the choice in this election is clear. If you want a president who will fight for your jobs, strengthen your community, and protect our troops President Trump is the clear choice this November.
