During an emotional appearance at the Republican Convention, Carl and Marsha Mueller accused the Obama administration of not doing enough to save their daughter Kayla Mueller, who was kidnapped in August 2013.

Carl Mueller said, referring to the Obama administration, “The government was more concerned about the terrorists in (the detention camp) Guantanamo than about the US hostages in Syria.” He added, “The Trump team showed us an empathy that we never received from the Obama administration.” To date, they have not heard from Biden.
Carl Mueller said ISIS terrorists tortured his daughter for 18 months before killing her. IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has repeatedly raped Kayla Mueller.

United States Secretary of Housing Ben Carson has expressed his condolences to the relatives of African American Jacob Blake, who was seriously injured in a police operation. In the Republican Congress, the sole African-American minister in US President Donald Trump’s cabinet said, “Our hearts go out to the Blake family and to the other families affected by the tragic events in Kenosha.” 29-year-old Jacob Blake was shot in the back on Sunday during a police operation in Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA. Subsequent protests also saw violence.
Carson said many on the Democratic Party’s side wanted to divide by claiming Trump was a racist. “You couldn’t be more wrong.” Trump wants all Americans to be successful.

Unlike President Donald Trump, he wants to act “responsibly,” Biden said. According to his own statements, he wants to start his journey after the Labor Day, which is celebrated on September 7.
The former vice president is walking an extremely cautious course in the Corona crisis. He has barely left his home state of Delaware since the virus started spreading in the United States. In late June, Biden announced that due to the risk of infection, he would not campaign in front of a large audience. The candidate can reach many voters via television and the Internet; completely foregoing public appearances would greatly limit his options in the election campaign.

The world’s first effective corona vaccine will be available in the US by the end of the year, said Pence, who also heads the corona task force at the White House. There are currently more than 800,000 corona tests per day and an increasing number of treatment options for Covid 19 patients.

Conway advisor praises Trump’s commitment to women
US Presidential Adviser Kellyanne Conway has praised Donald Trump’s commitment to promoting women in American society. “For decades, he has promoted women to leadership positions in business and government,” Conway told the Republican Congress Wednesday evening (local time). “He confides in and consults us, respects our opinions and insists that we are equal to men.” The 2016 election campaign highlighted Donald Trump’s previous misogyny statements.
In the 2016 presidential election, Conway helped Trump to victory as campaign manager. After taking office, she became an advisor to the president and one of his most determined defenders. She gained widespread overseas exposure in early 2017 when she tried to explain false government allegations about “alternative facts.” A day before the start of the party conference, she surprisingly announced her withdrawal from the White House at the end of the month to take care of her four children.
For Conway, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany had already snapped the photo of a compassionate president who cares about them on Wednesday. She shared how Trump called her after breast surgery before her time as a spokeswoman to monitor her well-being. “The decision to have a preventive mastectomy was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make,” said McEnany. “But supporting President Trump, who will protect my daughter and our children’s future, has been the easiest.”

Lara Trump calls her father-in-law a passionate country father
Lara Trump portrayed her father-in-law as a passionate father-in-law in the presidential family dance at the Republican party conference. “He’s a fighter and will never stop fighting for America.” In an engaging speech, the 37-year-old former television producer shared how she came to New York from a humble background in North Carolina.
She never thought she would be on the Republican party stage, said the wife of President’s son Eric Trump. Her parents taught her that anything in America could be achieved with hard work and determination. When she met the Trump family, all previously accepted statements immediately disappeared: “They were warm and caring, they were hard workers and sober.”
On the 100th anniversary of the introduction of women’s suffrage in the US, Lara Trump praised the president’s commitment to women. He has brought many women into leadership positions in his government and led hundreds of thousands of women to work and out of poverty. Lara Trump turned directly to the US president and thanked him – “for believing in me”. Lara Trump has been hired as an advisor to the Trump campaign team.
Former Ambassador Grenell Praises Trump’s “America First” Policy
Former US Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, praised US President Donald Trump’s “America First” policy at the Republican Congress. “America First is simply the belief that politicians should focus on the equality and dignity of every American,” said Grenell. “And that duty is done by promoting the security and prosperity of the American people above all else. That’s America First. That’s the Trump Doctrine.”
Grenell said, “As a US Ambassador to Germany, I was in the front row of Donald Trump’s America First Foreign Policy. I wish every American could see President Trump negotiating on their behalf.” He witnessed Trump “bewitching” Chancellor Angela Merkel while at the same time insisting that Germany honor its NATO defense spending commitments.
“In four years, Donald Trump has not started new wars,” said the former acting US intelligence coordinator. Trump acknowledged that America’s endless wars were a “catastrophe.” He brought soldiers home, rebuilt the army, and signed peace agreements that made Americans safer. “The elites in Washington want you to see this kind of foreign policy as immoral. That’s why they call it nationalistic,” Grenell said. These elites think they insult Trump. “As if the American president shouldn’t base foreign policy on America’s national interests.”
Civil rights activist: Trump did more for blacks than Biden
Civil rights activist Clarence Henderson praised US President Donald Trump’s commitment to African Americans at the Republican Party conference. “These performances show that Donald Trump really cares about the lives of blacks,” Henderson said Wednesday evening (local time) during the largely virtual event. “He’s done more for black Americans in four years than Joe Biden in 50.” Biden – the Democratic presidential candidate – had the guts to say that anyone who didn’t vote for him wasn’t black. “I say if you vote for Biden, you don’t know the story.”
Former football pro Jack Brewer also defended Trump against allegations of racism. “I know what racism looks like,” said Brewer, who is a member of the Black Voices for Trump group. “In America, he doesn’t look like President Trump. And I am sick of the way he is portrayed in the media and refuse to acknowledge what he has really done for the black community.”
Trump advertises, among other things, that unemployment among African Americans had fallen to an all-time low before the corona pandemic. He has also secured funding for historically black universities. His judicial reform resulted in the release of many black prisoners.

Senator: Democrats want government control
US Senator Marsha Blackburn has accused Democrats of seeking to drastically increase government control over US citizens if they win the November election. “If it were up to the Democrats, they would lock you in their house until you become dependent on the government for everything,” Blackburn said Wednesday night (local time) at the Republican Conference. “That looks a lot like communist China to me.” Blackburn appeared to be referring to protective measures in the coronavirus pandemic.
The senator said Biden, his deputy candidate Kamala Harris and their “radical allies” wanted to destroy American heroes in the security forces – “because the government can control us when there are no heroes to inspire us.” The theme of the third day of the Republican Congress was “Land of Heroes”.
First Lady is promoting Trump’s reelection – and talking about Corona
US First Lady Melania Trump campaigned for her husband’s re-election in a speech at a party conference – speaking unusually openly about the consequences of the corona crisis for the US. President Donald Trump is an “authentic person who loves this country and its people,” the First Lady said Tuesday evening (local time) in her address in the White House rose garden. “I believe we need my husband’s leadership now more than ever.”
At the start of her speech, Melania Trump addressed the corona crisis. Since March, the lives of people in the US have “drastically changed”: “The invisible enemy Covid-19 has passed over our beautiful country and has hit us all,” said the 50-year-old. “My deepest condolences go out to all who have lost a loved one, and my prayers go out to those who are sick and suffering.”
Many people were concerned and felt “helpless,” said the first lady. “I want you to know, you’re not alone.” At the same time, she reaffirmed her husband’s commitment to the fight against the pandemic: “Donald will not rest until he has done everything possible to take care of everyone affected by this terrible pandemic.”
Trump Son Eric: My Dad Brings Americans to Mars
President’s son Eric Trump has promised Americans that their countrymen will soon – driven by the American spirit – fly to Mars. He had “built the New York City skyline, built the Hoover Dam, and under my father’s direction, will send Americans to Mars,” Eric Trump told the Republican Congress. This American spirit will also “beat the empty, repressive and radical views of the far left in 68 days,” Trump said. The election on Nov. 3 would last 70 days, as a CNN reporter noted.
No one campaigned for the “silent majority” in the country before his father, Eric Trump said. Both Democratic and Republican politicians before Trump were “more concerned about how they will be received by the elites in Paris than about how Americans will provide for their families in Pittsburgh.” “My father will fight for you,” he said.
“I love you very much!” Eric Trump said to his father’s address. In addition, he was the first of the Trump children to speak with the president in person. “Dad, let’s make Uncle Robert proud.” Donald Trump’s younger brother Robert, who he called his best friend, died about ten days ago.
Allegations of nepotism against Biden at Republican party conference
At the Republican Convention, allegations of nepotism were leveled against the Democratic presidential candidate, ex-Vice President Joe Biden. Former Florida Attorney Pam Bondi on Tuesday night criticized Biden’s son Hunter Biden for serving on the board of directors of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. “Even though he had no experience with Ukraine or the energy sector, he got millions for doing nothing,” Bondi said. “He had a qualification that was important: he was the son of the man responsible for distributing US aid to Ukraine.”
US President Trump has accused Biden of protecting his son from the Ukrainian judiciary as vice president in the Barack Obama administration. To this end, Trump wanted to open an investigation in Ukraine. The conflict eventually led to impeachment lawsuits against Trump, which resulted in an acquittal in the Senate in February. Trump’s lawyers argued at the time that Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board of directors was a clear conflict of interest. At the time, Biden was in charge of US policy towards Ukraine.
Joe Biden rejects any wrongdoing. It is not known how much money Hunter Biden received for his post. Bondi accused Joe Biden on Tuesday of “willful conduct”. “There are numerous press releases showing that other close relatives have benefited from Joe’s 47-year political career.” Bondi has not provided any evidence for this. Nor did she say which family members it should have been.
Minister: Biden is “prisoner of the radical left”
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has called Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden a “prisoner of the radical left.” “You believe that your skin color should dictate your policy,” said the African-American minister Tuesday evening (local time) at the Republican party conference. “If you don’t conform while exercising your God-given right to acquit and think, they will bring you down.”
Republicans, on the other hand, trusted people to think for themselves and pursue the American dream as they see fit, Cameron said. He criticized: “Joe Biden is a backward thinker in a world that yearns for forward-looking leadership.”
US Senator: Biden will “shed our blood and our wealth”
Republicans portrayed Donald Trump’s Democratic challenger Joe Biden as a belligerent at their party conference. Biden had “consistently called for more wars,” Senator Rand Paul said on his appearance. Biden voted for the war in Iraq, supporting “wars in Serbia, Syria, Libya”. “I’m afraid Biden will go to war again,” said Paul. “Biden will continue to waste our blood and wealth. President Trump will bring home our heroes.”
Biden voted by a majority in the US Senate in 2002 for then Republican President George W. Bush to use military force in Iraq, but a few years later described this as a mistake.
Paul was also a Republican candidate for the US presidency four years ago. At the time, he had warned in a debate not to entrust control of nuclear weapons to Trump.
US Secretary of State Pompeo attacks China during the party conference
Despite a long tradition, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo became directly involved in the election campaign and promoted President Donald Trump’s re-election to the Republican Congress. The implementation of the “America First” program “has not made Trump popular in every foreign capital,” Pompeo said in the speech previously recorded in Jerusalem and aired Tuesday. “But it worked.”
In China, Trump has “lifted the curtain on the Chinese Communist Party’s predatory aggression,” said the US Secretary of State. Regarding the corona pandemic, Pompeo said, “The president has held China responsible for hiding the China virus and allowing it to spread death and economic destruction in America and the world.” Under the Trump administration, NATO got stronger, Pompeo said. Speaking of the INF disarmament treaty with Moscow, which ended in 2019, he said, “America has left behind a damaging treaty so that our nation can now build missiles to deter Russian aggression.”
Pompeo’s video speech to the party congress drew strong criticism from the Democratic Party. Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign leadership said Tuesday that the Secretary of State’s contribution to the Republican Convention was not only a misuse of tax money, but also undermined the vital work of the State Department.
Trump Daughter Tiffany: Media and Technology Companies Are Manipulating Us
President’s daughter Tiffany Trump told American citizens at the Republican Party conference that they were being manipulated by the media and technology companies. “Rather than giving Americans the right to shape our own beliefs, this system of disinformation keeps people mentally addicted to the ideas they see fit,” Tiffany Trump said Tuesday. “People need to realize that our thoughts, opinions and even the choice of who to vote for are being manipulated and invisibly imposed by the media and tech giants.”
Tiffany Trump explained to her father that he was driven by the “American spirit”. “My dad made me believe America can really be great again!” Tiffany Trump said of herself that she has just graduated from law school: “I can empathize with so many of you who might be looking for a job.”
The 26-year-old is Trump’s youngest daughter. She is her mother’s only child, Marla Maples. The American actress was married to Trump from 1993 to 1996.
Campaign Against Abortion Seeks Trump Re-election
A leading anti-abortionist in the US called for President Donald Trump to be re-elected at the Republican party conference. “He has done more for the unborn than any other president,” a former clinic director, Abby Johnson, said Tuesday. In his first year in office, Trump revoked a provision from his predecessor Barack Obama and then Vice President Joe Biden, which allowed the state to co-finance abortions.
“This election is a choice between two radical anti-life activists and the most ardent pro-life president we’ve ever had,” said Johnson. She urged supporters of the pro-life anti-abortion campaign to go door to door and get neighbors to vote for Trump.

Larry Kudlow, economic adviser to US President Donald Trump, warned the Republican Congress of an economic downturn if the Democrats win. “Our economic choice is clear,” Kudlow said Tuesday evening (local time) ahead of the November elections. “Do you want a healthy economy, prosperity, opportunity and optimism? Or do you want to return to the dark days of stagnation, recession and pessimism?” Trump will face ex-Vice President Joe Biden of the Democratic challenger in the November election.
Kudlow said the US economic development under Trump up until the corona pandemic had been a “brilliant success”. The health and economic consequences of the pandemic were tragic.

In any case, the number of letters in elections lags behind big events like Mother’s Day or Christmas, which the US Post manages well. However, he is considering “major changes to improve services,” DeJoy said in the post-election period.
On Monday, the postmaster must also testify before the Lower House. The Congress Chamber wants to settle a bill on Saturday to prevent cutbacks. DeJoy had suspended his reform plans last week. Democrats had expressed concern that they could favor Republican incumbent Donald Trump in the November election. DeJoy had backed the president and his party with millions of donations before his appointment. Trump himself has repeatedly warned of falsifications in postal ballots, but without presenting any evidence. Experts have stated that postal voting in the US is just as safe as other forms of voting.
Gysi and Trittin welcome Biden’s appointment
Gregor Gysi, spokesman for the Left Party’s foreign policy, and Jürgen Trittin, Green Party politician, have responded positively to Joe Biden’s nomination as Democratic presidential candidate and see the 77-year-old as an alternative to incumbent Donald Trump.
“Joe Biden has put the social, economic and environmental problems of the US under one name: Trump. With this party congress, the Democrats closed the ranks behind Biden and switched to attack mode,” Gysi Chillreport explains. Biden’s solutions with slightly fairer taxation, trillion government investment in climate and health protection, and a clear commitment to racism would tie in with Obama’s policies and put the US a little in the middle post-Trump. Bernie Sander’s support for Biden makes it clear how necessary this is after four years of Trump. Although little was said about Biden’s foreign policy because this topic regularly plays a minor role in the US election campaign, it is hoped that normalization will take place. in terms of China, Russia, is entering Europe, ”said Gysi. In any case, Biden seems to be clear that the US cannot overcome its crisis with national selfishness.
Trittin: “The alternative to Trump is on the table”
Jürgen Trittin also welcomes Biden’s nomination. “With the end of the party congress and the speech of Joe Biden, the alternative to Trump is on the table. Where this divides and polarizes, Biden wants to unite the country. Compassion and character strength become an election issue,” the green politician said Chillreport. the. “Biden acts as the country’s foremost caretaker. He has the courage to address the issues openly and speaks about the four crises in the US – corona, recession, racism and climate crisis. They must be addressed and not suppressed.” No miracle is coming. ‘, there is no wonder. “Voters should take action themselves and prevent a new majority for Trump.” With this expectation management, Joe Biden presents himself not as a savior, but as an offer to do better, “Trittin said.” That is also true internationally. If he is elected, neither the global challenges nor the transatlantic conflicts of interest will disappear. But there is a greater chance that crises such as corona, climate and recession will be tackled globally and together again. “

Biden promised to become president of all Americans, not just those who vote for him. “United we can and will overcome America’s period of darkness,” he said. The ex-vice president appeared in his hometown of Wilmington, Delaware. Due to the corona pandemic, the party congress took place in highly compressed form and largely virtually. “Too much anger, too much fear, too much division.

“Without Joe Biden I wouldn’t speak to you today”: At the party conference of the American Democrats, 13-year-old Brayden Harrington praised presidential candidate Joe Biden as caretaker. He met Biden a few months ago in New Hampshire, he said in a video message aired Thursday night (local time). “He told me we were members of the same club: we stutter.” Biden showed him how to mark his speeches himself so that it would be easier to speak them out loud.
“I’m just a normal guy and in no time Joe Biden has made me more confident about something that’s been bothering me all my life,” said Brayden. Joe Biden took care of it. “Imagine what he could do for all of us.” In a film later shot at the virtual party conference, Biden himself described how he worked as a child to overcome his stuttering.
More than 70 former Republican security officials pledge aid to Biden
More than 70 former Republican national security officials, including some former members of the Trump administration, have signed an open letter expressing support for Joe Biden in the US election. In addition, in the letter they sharply criticize the policies of US President Donald Trump.
“We are very concerned about developments in our country under Donald Trump’s leadership,” the letter said. “Through his actions and rhetoric, Trump has shown that he lacks the character and competence to run this nation and that he has been guilty of corrupt behavior that makes him unable to serve as president.” Donald Trump has lost the trust of millions of voters. He was “dangerous” and “unable” to use any other term.
“Instead, we believe that Joe Biden has the character, experience and temperament to run our country,” he said. The letter was signed by, among others, former FBI director William Webster and Chuck Hagel, the former Secretary of Defense under ex-President Barack Obama.
Democrat Bloomberg condemns Trump’s economic policies
Former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has sharply criticized US President Donald Trump’s economic policies. Speaking at the Democratic Party conference, the multi-billionaire said Trump’s failed economic policies were a massive tax cut for wealthy people like him who didn’t need extra money. All other Americans were just lying to Trump, the former New York mayor said.
In the November election, Americans should vote not primarily on Trump’s character, but rather on his performance as president, Bloomberg demanded. “I ask you not to vote against Donald Trump because he is a bad person. I urge you to vote against him because he did a bad job,” said the Democrat. As for the coronavirus pandemic, Bloomberg said Trump’s “reckless decisions” put America at risk. Trump shouldn’t get away with that, he warned.
Bloomberg said on Thursday that as vice president, after the 2008-2009 financial crisis, Biden had already proven that he had what it takes to lead the country out of a crisis. Biden will reverse Trump’s tax cut for the wealthy and use the additional resources to rebuild the country after the pandemic, Bloomberg said. Trump’s tenure is a “sad chapter” in US history that must now be ended, Bloomberg said.
Ex-competitors are behind Biden
At the conference of the American Democratic Party, numerous former rivals for the presidential run were behind candidate Joe Biden. Senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar called for Biden’s election. Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, ex-congressman Beto O’Rourke, tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang and billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg also promoted Biden.
American comedian Sarah Cooper: Trump doesn’t want us to vote
She moves her lips in sync with the words of US President Donald Trump and has become a star in the US with her short videos on social media: Sarah Cooper (43). At the conference of the US Democratic Party, the comedian impersonated Trump on Thursday night (local time) and made it seem like his words were coming out of her mouth in the usual way: drastic warnings about the letter vote. “Where do these ballots end up? Who gets them? Who doesn’t?” Were the words of Trump during a performance on June 23 in Phoenix, Arizona. “Are they going to be copied by groups within our nation? Are they going to be copied by foreign powers, maybe a million times?”
In her own voice, which you don’t normally hear in her videos, Cooper said afterwards that she had often heard Trump say very disturbing things. “But nothing is more dangerous to our democracy than its attacks on postal votes – during a pandemic!” Cooper said. “The truth is, Donald Trump doesn’t want us to vote. Because he can’t win fair and honest.”
Cooper’s videos work on a schedule: she wears a trouser suit like “Trump” and imitates him with exaggerated facial expressions and gestures – but the words are those of the president.
Democrats Congress: With laughter to Trump
After President Donald Trump’s relentless criticism of the party conference of the American Democrats, the hour of jokes struck Thursday evening. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Seinfeld” and “Veep”), among other things, joked about the incumbent to get the SMS info number of the campaign team of his challenger Joe Biden in the heads. “30330 – that would be Donald Trump’s golf handicap if he didn’t cheat,” was one of them.
A swipe at Facebook – an important medium for Trump – was also inevitable. “If we all vote, there is nothing Facebook, Fox News and Vladimir Putin can do to stop us,” said Louis-Dreyfus, who hosted the final day of the largely virtual party conference. She recalled Biden congratulating her on the cover photo in the Amtrak magazine on board. “Joe Biden can’t just read, he reads everything,” she said – a swipe at the incumbent Trump, who is rumored to be lazy to read.
And as far as faith is concerned, the next point against Trump followed: “Joe Biden goes to church so regularly that he even gets there without tear gas and federal troops.” During the protests against police brutality and racism, federal security forces pushed protesters out of a park in front of the White House before Trump went to a nearby church where he had his photo taken with a Bible in hand.
Trump attacks Biden and “insane” Democrats

Trump must hand over tax documents
US President Donald Trump has suffered another defeat in the dispute over the release of his tax documents. Judge Victor Marrero on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit that Trump sought to prevent the transfer of tax documents. Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow announced his appeal, requesting that the documents not be handed over. Observers believe the documents are unlikely to be released before the November election.
Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance is investigating Trump’s family business, the Trump Organization, for insurance and banking fraud, among other things. In this regard, he requested that tax documents be released for eight years. A spokesman for Vance declined to comment.
In the United States, it is common for the president to show the public his finances and publish his tax return. Trump, who is running for re-election in November, broke with this tradition. He went to the US Supreme Court to keep the documents under lock and key. The Supreme Court ruled in July that Trump must provide documents requested by Vance. But this was not the end of the legal battle, as Trump can, among other things, defend himself against the scope of the documents to be handed over in court. So the case again went to court in New York.
Former Trump Adviser Steve Bannon Arrested
Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was arrested in New York on Thursday after a fraud charge.

Bannon is one of the most influential voices in the ultra-conservative camp of American politics. For a time he was the chief strategist and campaign manager for US President Donald Trump. According to news channel CNN, there was initially no response from Bannon’s lawyer to the charges.

Democratic American politician Gabrielle Giffords, who was seriously injured in a 2011 assassination attempt as a Member of Parliament, campaigned for Joe Biden’s election. In her speech at the American Democratic Party conference, which the New York Times said was the longest since the attack, she linked her personal fate to that of the country: she once found words easily. Today I struggle with the speech. But I haven’t lost my voice, ”she said. Everyone had to raise their voices, even though they had to struggle to find the words.
Joe Biden will fight for the Democrats against US President Donald Trump in November. “We are at a crossroads. We can let the shootings continue or we can take action,” Giffords said. “We can protect our families, our future. We can choose. We can be on the right side of history.” Biden should be elected, she warned. “He was there for me, he will be there for you too,” she promised.

Trump calls for a company boycott
US President Donald Trump has called for a boycott of the tire manufacturer Goodyear because the company is hurting its constituencies. The company had banned headgear with the slogan “Make America Great Again,” the president said on Twitter to justify the case. After Trump’s tweet, the price of Goodyear shares initially fell more than three percent, but then recovered somewhat.
Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA-HATS. Buy better tires for a lot less! (This is what the radical left Democrats are doing. Two can play the same game, and we have to play it now!).
– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 19, 2020
The trigger for Trump’s actions was likely media reports, according to which clothing with the slogan was declared “unacceptable” during training at a Goodyear factory in Kansas. Trump had already backed up the “MAGA” pledge in the 2016 election campaign to return America to its former size. However, according to a photo of a presentation slide published on the Internet, symbols of the “Black Lives Matter” movement against violence against blacks and for tolerance towards sexual minorities were allowed.

The choice is either Trump’s’ Us-Against-You ‘America or Joe Biden’s America,’ where we all live and work together. It’s a clear choice. And the future of our country depends on it. ‘
In view of the corona crisis and the dramatic rise in unemployment as a result of the pandemic, Clinton said, “At a time like this, the Oval Office should be a command center. Instead, it’s a storm center,” Clinton criticized. Under Trump, there is nothing but chaos – only one thing that never changes: “His determination to deny responsibility and shift blame.”
