Virtual Debates: 2020 Presidential Candidate

Joe Biden

I'm running to lead this country because I think it's important to restore the soul of this nation. This president has ripped it out. He is the only president who has equated racist and white supremacist with ordinary and decent people. He is the only president who has actively engaged and embraced dictators and thumbed their nose at out allies. And secondly, I'm running for president because I think we have to restore the backbone of America, the poor and hard-working middle-class people. You can't do that without restoring the dignity they once had. And the last thing, we've got to unite the United States of America as much as anybody says we can't. If we do, there is not a single thing the American people can't do. This is the United States of America. We can do anything if we are together. Together. God Bless you All. And God protect our troops.

Crime

There are too many people in prison. Too many black men and I might add, too many black women in prison. Our reforms started to reduce that population. Under our reforms 38,000 people came out. No more mandatory minimums. End private prisons. Bail reform. No juveniles in adult prison. Instead of teaching people how to be better criminals in prison, we should be educating people in prison. Automatic restoration of rights once your sentence is served, meaning not only that you can vote, but also that you automatically qualify for every program, including Pell grants so you can go on to get your education.

I call it ARPA-H to fund research and take all the technology we have and focus on solving problems that are within our reach like the Biden Cancer Initiative and the moonshot.

Education

Teachers shouldn’t have to worry about how they are going to make their student loan payments while they are busy educating the next generation. Biden will see to it that the existing Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program is fixed, simplified, and actually helps teachers.

Drug Policy

No one should be going into prison because they are addicted, they should be going into rehabilitation. Mandatory treatment in jail for people who also suffer from addiction. Decriminalize marijuana and also expunge records for those who have been convicted.

Environment

Climate change threatens communities across the country, from beachfront coastal towns to rural farms in the heartland. We must turbocharge our efforts to address climate change and ensure that every American has access to clean drinking water, clean air, and an environment free from pollutants.

Foreign Policy

First and foremost, we must enforce existing trade laws and invest in the competitiveness of our workers and communities here at home, so that they complete on a level playing field. Then, we need to write the rules of the road for international trade through a modern, inclusive process—rules that protect our workers, safeguard the environment, uphold labor standards and middle-class wages, foster innovation, and take on big global challenges like corporate concentration, corruption, and climate change.
